    Pivotal Partnerships, with Heather Ewing

    Pivotal Partnerships, with Heather Ewing

    Welcome to the Managing CRE Risk podcast with Jeremy Goodrich. Today, we have Heather Ewing, a seasoned CRE broker, on the show out of Madison, Wisconsin. Heather works primarily in retail and restaurant and she shares how to attract the best tenants and find the best deals in the triple net world. We also talk about how to properly structure leases and how the retail space is in the current market. You don’t want to miss out on this episode!

    “I bet on people's wins, not losses. I want people to be successful.”
     
    04:40
    Heather has lived in Madison, Wisconsin for over 45 years, so she deeply understands the real estate scene. At the beginning of our conversation, she explains how the market works and why it’s an excellent place to invest in. Even though Madison is a tertiary market, it has a big university and it’s also the state capital city which brings in a lot of retailers and restaurants. 
     
    Heather explains how to successfully mitigate the risk in the retail market as a new investor.
    Align yourself with a great lender. SBA loans have a much better interest rate. Find a good broker with a niche in retail. Look into different grants in your state or nationwide that can help with your business. Focus on how you structure the lease. A good broker relationship can help you figure out what the market rate is as this is usually not public knowledge.


    “A lot of times you can gain the market knowledge by getting out, hitting the streets, and asking questions.”
     
    19:13
    Heather shares some mistakes she sees people make in the triple net space. Many new investors don’t get an attorney who is familiar with CRE to negotiate the lease, which can cause many problems in the long term. Another common mistake is not working with service providers who are niched in the investor’s specific asset class.
     
    At the end of the conversation, Heather talks about a couple of entry points for new investors who want to come into the retail space.
    Go to different events in the area you are interested in and network with experts. Be active on LinkedIn and social media and make connections with brokers.

    1031 Exchange in Kansas City, with Alex Olson

    1031 Exchange in Kansas City, with Alex Olson

    Welcome to the Managing CRE Risk podcast, where we believe that if you can identify, understand, and manage risk, you can take huge leaps in your CRE journey and find more success along the way. Our guest today is Brian Olson, a real estate broker who specializes in 1031 exchange. In this conversation, we dig into one particular market, Kansas City, and talk about how to find the best deals, create good relationships with brokers, and make sure that you're running your 1031 exchanges correctly. His great advice applies to any market in the country, so you don’t want to miss out on this insightful episode!
    Learn more about Brian and his journey at shineinsurance.com/managing-commercial-real-estate-risk!



    “There are a lot of the reasons why Kansas City's drawn a lot of investors here recently.”
     
    04:04
    At the beginning of our conversation, Brian explains how the Kansas City market works and why it’s a particularly good market to invest in. Kansas City is very landlord-friendly, has low taxes, and has many cash-flowing assets.
     
    Currently, every market in the US has issues with the inventory of multifamily properties. The triple net assets are a bit easier to find and have better cap rates. Brian is specialized in 1031 exchange, which has great cashflow opportunities in Kansas City’s stable market.



    “In real estate, the brokers are typically not like your used car salesman. They're there to help you and to build a long-term relationship with you.” 
     
    14:19
    For people who want to invest outside of their states, Brian has some great advice on how to lower their risk.
    Get referrals and find a good off-market broker by using your network. Be proactive. Have constant communication with your broker. Tell them why you like or don’t like a deal and what you’re looking for. Try to understand the market and have realistic expectations.


    “Your Qualified Intermediary, broker, and lender are going to be key team members for you.”
     
    24:54
    Brian explains the biggest risk he sees people taking in commercial real estate that creates concern. They overpay 10-50% on smaller assets rather than finding off-market deals. The best way to reduce your risk is to build a relationship with a broker, especially in a 1031 scenario.
     
    The biggest mistake people make around a 1031 exchange is closing out on a property but not putting their funds within a Qualified Intermediary. It’s also important to make sure to know and engage in a market that you're going to exchange into.




    About Our Guest, Alex Olson
    As a 1031 Exchange Real Estate Agent, Brian helps clients identify and close real estate transactions in the Kansas City market, St Louis Market; and the states of Kansas and Missouri. An expert in assisting buyers and sellers (in-state and out-of-state) looking for multifamily properties in Kansas City, St Louis, Kansas, and Missouri.

    4 Quadrants of Risk

    4 Quadrants of Risk

    Welcome to the Managing Commercial Real Estate Risk Podcast with Jeremy Goodrich. This show is all about making great decisions and not being afraid to take big leaps. Today, we expand on our last episode about the 3 silos of risk and talk about the quadrants of risk. Think back at these quadrants when you make CRE decisions to be able to identify and manage the risk and you will exponentially increase the profits in your portfolio.
    Join us and learn more about managing CRE risks and unleashing your profits at shineinsurance.com/managing-commercial-real-estate-risk!



    “Systems are the foundation under how I mitigate the risk and how I find exponential growth in my journey.”



    Today, we expand on our last episode and add one more significant risk factor.
     
    Physical risk.
    This quadrant is related to the physical space in your CRE business. Focus on having a good insurance policy to quickly and effectively solve physical damage in your buildings.

    Relationship risk.
    There's risks to the relationship with your team, tenants, and service provider. Make sure to have solid contracts at the beginning of all your business partnerships to mitigate the risk later.

    External risk.
    These are the things that are external to your business but have the highest level of effect on it. Market risks, taxes, the political environment, or high prices can all affect your success in real estate.

    Marketing.
    Silence is death when it comes to business ownership so you have to be known in some way. Sales.
    Sales is the process of closing the deal. Delivery.
    If you’re not delivering on your promises then everything falls apart in your business. Systems.
    Systems are the foundation under how we mitigate the risk. This quadrant has 3 equally important subcategories. Create a strong business plan that contains all your systems and processes.
     
    So as you look at your journey, what are the things that you feel the least confident in? What are the risks that seem the biggest when you look at that quadrant? Share it with us on our social media pages.

    Answers to Inflation, with Hunter Thompson

    Answers to Inflation, with Hunter Thompson

    Welcome to the Managing CRE Risk podcast with Jeremy Goodrich. Today, we have a commercial real estate heavyweight on the show, Hunter Thompson, who has been in the CRE world for a long time as an investor and capital raiser. In our conversation, we talk about how inflation affects the market, how to raise and protect capital, and why this might be a great time to get into real estate investing. Join us and learn how to be a stellar capital raiser!
    Learn more about Hunter and his journey at shineinsurance.com/managing-commercial-real-estate-risk!



    “Interest rates are rising and it's really impacting deals right now.”
     
    04:15
    At the beginning of our conversation, Hunter explains what the word risk means to him.
    According to him, the most important factor in protecting investor capital is debt. It’s the determining factor on whether or not investors can get their money back. So they must leverage their investments intelligently because they need to supercharge their returns.
     
    Hunter shares the most common mistakes he sees people making around debt.
    Not thinking deeply enough about the loan to value ratio. What's that value based on? How different is the current value of that asset from that future value? Not having a big enough network, so if things go wrong there’s no help.


    “I don't like the “rich get richer” game, but I'm certainly not going to be on the losing side of that discussion.”
     
    11:59
    Hunter talks about inflation as one of the biggest risks in the current market. However, for real estate investors, even though their expenses grow with inflation, their income could grow even more significantly.
     
    People who are participating in the real estate market right now will get wealthier and people with fixed incomes will suffer from inflation. It’s important to educate people about passive investing.



    “I built up a platform and the louder my voice got, the higher the caliber of people I could attract.“
     
    26:53
    Hunter is a seasoned capital raiser. He shares his best advice for new capital raisers coming into the current market.
    Find your role in someone’s business who's been doing it longer and has a bigger network. Use the “fund of funds” model and compile a small group of people into an LLC to be able to raise a more significant amount together.  
    Hunter has created a coaching program and a free summit called The 100k to Invest Summit where he shares his knowledge together with many real estate professionals.




    About Our Guest, Hunter Thompson
    Hunter is a full-time real estate investor and founder of Asym Capital (“AY-SIM). Since founding Asym, Hunter has helped more than 400 retail investors acquire over $150,000,000 of mobile home parks, self-storage, retail, office, ATM machines, and cryptocurrency assets.

    3 Silos of Risk

    3 Silos of Risk

    Welcome to the Managing Commercial Real Estate Risk Podcast, where we believe that if you identify, understand, and manage the risk in your journey, you will exponentially increase the profits in your portfolio. In today’s solo episode, we start to categorize risk and talk about the 3 silos of risk. This will help you understand risk more and make your decision-making faster and more efficient. 
    Join us and learn more about managing CRE risks and unleashing your profits at shineinsurance.com/managing-commercial-real-estate-risk!
     
    “The quicker we can silo information, the better we can understand it quickly.”
     
    If you've been listening to the solo episodes, you're starting to experience a foundation under which the Managing Commercial Real Estate Risk process works. It's all about decision-making and mindset. 
     
    So today, we share with you the 3 silos of risk to help you make decisions quicker and more effectively.
     
    Physical.
    This silo is related to the physical space in your CRE business, such as your apartment complex, office, retail space, etc.
    Many things can damage these physical spaces from fires to floods, so you have to make a decision on how to manage these scenarios.
    Don’t just assume that nothing will happen, have a good insurance policy.

    Contracts and relationships.
    If you think about the relationships you have in commercial real estate, they are almost all based on contracts.
    Contracts have power in a couple of ways. They establish healthy relationships and they can also solve the problem at the time something bad happens.
    Focus on creating solid contracts at the beginning of all your business partnerships to mitigate the risk later.

    External.
    These are the things that are external to your business but affect it, such as inflation, taxes, the political environment, etc. You can't control these factors after the point of purchase.
    To mitigate external risk try to educate yourself about the market you’re in as much as possible.


    Did we miss anything? Is there a silo that exists and we didn’t mention? Hit the socials, let us know about it, and we’ll be sure to address it in a future episode!

    Healthy Partnership Agreement, with Brian Adams

    Healthy Partnership Agreement, with Brian Adams

    Welcome to the Managing CRE Risk podcast, where we believe that if you can identify, understand, and manage risk, you can take huge leaps in your CRE journey and find more success along the way. Our guest today is Brian Adams, a syndicator, operator, investor, and former attorney. In this episode, we talk about the importance of contractual relationships, how to set clear expectations with your partners, and build strong teams to mitigate your CRE risk. Listening to Brian will change your thinking around contracts, the relationships you have with your partners, and the people you work with on your CRE investments.
    Learn more about Brian and his journey at shineinsurance.com/managing-commercial-real-estate-risk!



    “When we talk about risk, it's not volatility. When I think about risk, I think about the permanent loss of capital.” 
     
    5:23
    At the beginning of the conversation, Brian explains what the word risk means to him. He started his career as a lawyer, so he sees “death, disability, and divorce” as the biggest issues that you need to front-run in your personal and business life. That is why he suggests people always have clear contracts when entering a partnership.
     
    The most important things to consider when establishing a partner relationship are the roles and responsibilities. The biggest risk is not establishing a good business plan and losing capital permanently.
     
    Brian recommends having independent third-party counsel representing each partner’s interests in the contract negotiation and not just one general corporate counsel.



    “When you go into partnerships, you're working with a human. And people are irrational, unpredictable, and they change.”
     
    22:53
    Brian shares his advice on how to adjust the structure if you are in an already established partnership.
    Review your real estate documents and contracts every few years. Create a clear plan for the next quarter, year, and 5 years. Do regular check-ins with your business partners to see if you’re still aligned on the same goals. Be open and transparent about your goals.


    “Just hoping for time to solve the issue never works.”
     
    29:57
    At the end of the conversation, Brian talks about how to address your business partners if you want to end the partnership.
    In case you don’t have the proper documents or contracts in place, hire a third-party counselor to mitigate the situation. Don’t wait for the partnership to change because time won’t solve this issue.

Very knowledgeable and walks the walk

Too many times podcasters just talk the talk but this podcast and their guests are actually doing it! Great topics and easy to listen to. I especially liked the episode on apartment investing and maybe I have not missed the boat on investing in that asset class!
