“I believe in educating all of my investors first and foremost, prior to them investing in apartment syndication, because this is foreign investment for most. And a lot of people have never heard of it.” – Keisha Kennedy
“I built those relationships prior to investing with them. Because it's just like a marriage. If you're investing in a deal, you're with them for X amount of years. As long as the deal makes sense, as long as the numbers pencil, and as long as I have that relationship built over. And I really look through the deal. Then I will go ahead and share that deal with my investors and ensure that they understand prior to investing in the deal.” – Keisha Kennedy
