    Guest Bio:
    I have built a business from the ground up with my own capital while working as a w2( attorney) including affiliated property management and construction company. Spent close to a decade investing with my own capital before starting to pool capital 2 years ago, which allowed us to exponentially scale. We are on the path to closing $100m of real estate by year-end. Recently merged with a Colorado-based property management and construction company to have true vertical integration across markets.
