Key Takeaways:

“Once I understood the vehicle, from my perspective, I was thinking, the return profile is somewhat similar. I get to be diversified across multiple different asset classes across the country, and I get to depend on someone else’s time, energy, and expertise. I’m going to do this a lot. And that’s really how I built my business.” – Hunter Thompson

“A syndication is pulling your money together with some other investors and getting into a much bigger deal than you probably could. – Hunter Thompson

“This is not an easy job. Anyone that thinks that it’s easy to raise capital hasn’t raised a lot of capital. You can fall on your face pretty hard.  If you do it right, it can be the most lucrative, the most sought after, the most consistently needed skill in the entire real estate business. If you have the ability to consistently write seven-figure checks or eight-figure checks, you will always have a place in the commercial real estate world. It’s unbelievable, and I think people are starting to get wind of that now.” – Hunter Thompson

“Always have a really good attorney, especially if we’re going to put something on paper like write a book. It has to be an iron-clad.” – Hunter Thompson
