I’m your host, Dan Breslin, and this is episode 209 on real estate development with Karl Krauskopf. Karl is a multi-family real estate investor and developer based in Seattle, Washington. He is the managing partner of Aurora’s Investment Group. Real estate development, specifically the entitlement process, can produce large gains without the risk of construction. Flipping houses is a great place to start in real estate, but it can be challenging to scale, which is why many real estate developers progress to the development of land and larger projects after finding success in single family homes. On this episode, Karl and I discussed this as his recent or past transition to larger deals and the same transition that I am currently going through myself.Karl: Sure. Happily. So, how I got into real estate was probably a little bit different from most folks. I got into real estate. That was 10 years back, I was a veteran and working in the healthcare industry. I was a director of corporate strategy and business development. So, that is where my passion lies, which is really around growth partnerships. How do we basically, how do we grow an entity of business?And what ended up coming to fruition and what bore the real estate endeavour was my wife and I going into a conversation about wanting to start a family, wanting to have a kid, and what better way to start a side business, which would become my future business, is having a kid. So, spent about six months during my wife’s being pregnant, self-educating myself, really learning how to maximise my income, as well as getting into diversifying my income by adding additional streams of revenue. Decided it was time to take the first leap, which was buying a duplex, a remote duplex across the state from me, and with full intentions of rehabbing, refinancing it, and repeating it. Come to find out that I was not the right asset for that. And now I just spent about $75,000, the majority of my at that time, disposable income in putting it, parking it into a duplex that had no direct path for the refinance. So, I started sweating. I was nervous, didn’t know what to do. We were about to have a baby. So I figured what’s the best next step? Well, the best next step, apparently at the time was to flip a massive home. My first flip ever, it was a hoarder home too. Fantastic idea, right? No, it was awesome. I believe it was four dumpsters’ worth, 440-yard dumpsters’ worth, of junk that we took out of this home. All this direct to say back is, I’m working a 40, 50 hour a week job as well as we just had our newbo(continued)

I found a quote online. I think this would be a good place to start. I don't know if you wrote this or someone wrote it about you, but it said "She worked as a personal trainer and had medical school dreams before entrepreneurship and franchising found her." Tell me about that. Kim: That is all true. In franchising, Dan. The question that's commonly asked is, how did franchising find you? Because nobody really wakes up and says, "Oh yeah, I think I'm going to go get into franchising." Right? It's more like you're looking for some outcome in your life and you stumble upon the advantages of franchising and go, "Ooh, this is a way to get where I want to go." That's pretty much what happened to me. There were two things I wanted to do when I was young. One was to become a motivational speaker, but like, how does one do that? You pursue the more logical thing. I was a straight-A student. I'm going to go to medical school and help people. Like I just always desired to be a person of influence, to do something that genuinely improves the lives of other people. After undergrad, I answered a classified ad in the newspaper that was for a franchise consulting company, not the one I'm part of today. But literally, that classified ad changed my life when I found what franchising as an industry is and does for people, which is, it's an industry of people helping people. It's an industry where every single day people are realizing their dreams, living their dreams, just inspiring, and helping each other. I knew that I had found my homeland. I did make a temporary deviation into entrepreneurship because like every good business owner, I think we all think that we can go out there and do it on our own. I tried to do that for five years and figured out how hard it is and mainly how lonely it is and the things that I now help other people realize and learn about in franchising like that. In a franchise, you're in business for yourself, but not by yourself. You have the comradery of, not just a corporate office, but all of the other franchise owners that are out there that are part of this brand. Together you are building something. It's like people who go off to war together often talk about the part they miss abo(continued)

He's also a licensed and bonded general contractor in Tennessee, managing more than $10 million of new development each year. Investing in Nashville Tennessee Real Estate is like most of the US at the time of this recording, super low inventory combined with insanely inflationary environment. There's also a housing shortage, which has created profitable conditions for residential real estate developers who are capable of building with scarce and expensive building materials and labor, not an easy task. In today's episode, Brandon and I discussed this situation and the system he's developed to actually build profitably. Brandon: Yeah, so I could probably speak to Nashville more than I can in the other markets. I know Memphis is a very heavy rental market. Over there, you can still scoop up properties for pretty cheap, but you got to be really careful because your tenant base is if you don't have a good system to processes for vetting tenants, you will get hosed on that. Knoxville, you're probably referring to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, tons of cabins going up Airbnb, right? COVID kind of blew that area up. Everybody wants to go on a vacation, but they're scared of COVID or there's a lockdown. So those areas where you can kind of get the whole glamping experience or cabin experience blew up, that area's phenomenal. The Smoky Mountains are obviously one of the best places to go and hike, especially during the fall when the leaves change. A little tip for everybody, right? If you have not been in the Smoky during the fall, it's great.Nashville's probably the only city that has gosh, 30, 40 cranes downtown. So you can just look if you just had a picture of three cities, you be able to identify Nashville from those three because it's got a ton of cranes. Nashville's just exponential growth. I think all the national builders are now officially here. They set up shop in the building. That mean, you've got these ginormous developments that are being announced every single year. They just announced one. It was like a $2 billion development over in the Bordeaux area, which is your first development where you're go(continued)

    Fast & Easy Multifamily Lending with StackSource Founder Tim Milazzo

    Fast & Easy Multifamily Lending with StackSource Founder Tim Milazzo

    Episode: Fast & Easy Multifamily Lending with StackSource Founder Tim MilazzoGuest: Tim Milazzo is the co-founder of StackSource, a technology driven engine for funding commercial real estate deals of all types.  Big Idea: Having access tofast & easy multifamily lending, or any other commercial funding, is the first step to scaling a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio.  The commercial loan landscape is extremely fragmented, with many lenders focused on only certain asset types, loan sizes, or other niche spaces at any given time.  StackSource is a national high volume aggregator of lenders, loan types & contacts, providing borrowers the faster method for finding the correct lender for your particular asset type.    Tim & I discuss how this volume of lenders will put you in a position of strength when you’re funding a deal.  Obtaining multiple, competing loan term sheets can be difficult when you’re buying a commercial deal because of the short timeline to closing.  The StackSource platform allows you to provide details of your project-whether multi family, industrial, commercial, etc- and then matches your loan type with those lending institutions currently lending in your local market and funding your specific deal type.  The end result is multiple term sheets allowing you to select the best option for your deal.  This is a contrast to how I’ve bought my last half dozen multi family projects:  calling around asking people I know who is funding this type of deal-then submitting my deal details to that single lender and obtaining one term sheet.  My way is a position of weakness-I am stuck riding with that single lender on that deal.  It’s worked out for me because I’m lucky to have found the right lender for my type of loan.  Shall we begin?This Episode of The REI Diamonds Show is Sponsored by the Deal Machine.

At any given time, Galen and his team are involved in helping several 100 people obtain full payment from insurance companies for catastrophic losses. A catastrophic loss would be considered a very large claim usually a fire in the context of us real estate investors. The thing is, many rental property insurance policies are actually designed not to pay out completely in those catastrophic events.During this episode, Galen and I discussed the right process for purchasing a property insurance policy. I personally own dozens of properties and have flipped well over 1000 and I have never bought insurance with the level of due diligence coached by Galen on today’s episode, you may not have the insurance protection that you believe you bought. Let’s begin.Alright, welcome to the REI diamond show. Galen, how are you doing?Galen Hair: I’m great. How are you doing?Dan: Nice. I am also great. We had like 60-degree weather here. It’s December in Chicago, which is unique for us this time of year. So no one’s complaining about the weather right now. Whereabouts are you recording in from and live and invest in that kind of thing?Galen: Yeah, so our office is based in New Orleans. Essentially, that’s where I live. Spend most of my time here. Unfortunately though, given my line of work, I kind of have to follow disasters where they are. So I will move around, probably head to the Midwest next week because of some tornadoes that just kind of blew through everything during hurricane season, I kind of moved from Hurricane to hurricane but most of my life and work are in New Orleans. And the weather is crazy in New Orleans if anyone follows that. So I think today, it’s pretty good. It’s like 65. But a couple of days ago we were in like the 30s. So it’s just all over the place.Dan: So just to kind of give people a little bit of background, if you would touch on maybe some of your real estate experience, and then kind of encapsulate what it is that you do in your business model now and how that fits in for real estate investors listening.Galen: Yeah, so real estate-wise, I’m definitely an amateur. I do identify properties that make sense for us to pick up kind of in and around the New Orleans area. And what I’ll do is buy those(continued)
