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)

    Episode: Investing in Hotels with Mike StohlerGuest: Mike Stohler is a former commercial airline pilot, Navy veteran, and co-founder at Gateway Private Equity Group.  Including apartment complexes, houses, and hotels, Mike has owned or operated over 1300 units.  Seeking value-add opportunities and higher returns, Mike pivoted from multi-family to hotels and now focuses exclusively in this niche. Big Idea: Investing in Hotels is really a two-fold investment.  First you’re investing in the real estate where the hotel is located.  Second, you’re investing in the business of running that hotel successfully.  Because of this dual nature, hotel investing can be riskier than other real estate investments while offering larger & faster returns when executed properlyThis Episode of The REI Diamonds Show is Sponsored by the Kiavi- Kiavi Offers Reliable & Low Cost Fix & Flip Loans with Interest Rates as Low as 6.49%.  Buy & Hold Loans Offered Even Lower.  Get a FREE IPad when you Close Your First Deal by Registering Now at  http://REILineOfCredit.comResources mentioned in this episode:https://www.GatewayPE.com/For Access to Real Estate Deals You Can Buy & Sell for Profit:https://AccessRealEstateDeals.com/View the Episode Description & Transcript Here:https://reidiamonds.com/investing-in-hotels-with-mike-stohler/Dan Breslin: Today’s guest, Mike Stohler, is a former commercial airline pilot, Navy veteran, and co-founder at Gateway Private Equity Group. Including apartment complexes, houses, and hotels, Mike has owned or operated over 13,000 units. Seeking value-add opportunities and higher returns, Mike then pivoted from multifamily to hotels and now focuses exclusively on this niche. Investing in hotels is really a two-fold investment. First, you’re investing in the real estate where the hotel is located. Second and maybe more importantly, you’re investing in the business that is running that hotel successfully. Because of this dual nature, hotel investing can be riskier than other real estate investments but at the same time offer larger and faster returns when executed properly.Dan: All right. To give some background, maybe you just want to start with the evolution of your real estate career and what your business looks like today.Mike: Sure. Yeah. I’ll try to keep it quick. I’m a little bit older. I got started, I caught the PG days, the pre-Google days, and absolutely failed. I did probably what a lot of you did is I read Rich Dad, Poor Dad, got excited, bought some tickets to seminar land, and then bam! Okay. I’m in small-town Indiana at the time. Buying was the easy part and then I didn’t know how to be Atlanta[?]. I’m like, “Okay, wait, there’s the paperwork? What’s the least- get out. Oh, I need a 5-day notice[?]. I didn’t know anything, right? I couldn’t google anything. I failed and failed miserably just because I just didn’t know what to do. We don’t have podcasts. We don’t have mentoring. We didn’t have any of that back in the days.If I needed a tenant, it’s like, what do I do? Put an ad in the newspaper, and it’s the old day of doing things old way. Fast forward, now, what I did is I learned. I was like, “Man, this is the way that I need to do it. This is how you make money. Real estate is it.” I actually went to work for a property management group because I was like, that’s the part that- the buying was the easy part, but how do I get experience? How do I get a mentor? I actually went and worked for them and I learned that end of it.I learned how to be a landlord because there are two parts of [inaudible]. You’re an investor, but then once you get the asset, how do you become the landlord of someone who wants to stay in your asset? You have to learn both sides of it. That’s what I did. Then I started in 20- about ten years later, this is probably 20- during the recession time period. I started getting back into it because I was like, “Okay, ther(continued)
