Ep. 125 Making Hard Decisions with Mark Kenney
< 1 day ago
On today's episode we have Mark Kenney from ThinkMultifamily on the show. Mark is a seasoned real estate investor, best-selling author, and founder of ThinkMultifamily. He has been in the industry for over 20 years and has invested in over 2,000 units. He started with nothing and now he runs a massive real estate empire. Want to learn how he did it? Listen in! GETTING STARTED: "I went to college to become a CPA. When I was a senior I started looking at real estate deals. Got my first accepted offer when I was 21 and my dad talked me out of it. I realized later that no matter how good the deal was it wouldn't be good enough for my dad. He wasn't even an investor but I valued his opinion. After that I started looking for properties without taking my dad with me. I always loved real estate and knew I didn't want to work in the corporate world. WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU GIVE BEGINNERS "First you need to ask yourself if you're willing to partner with other people. If your're answer is no then you will be limited to what you can do with your own personal net work. But if you're willing to partner with somebody then your possibilities are limitless. At the end of the day if you call a broker and tell them you're new and looking for properties, that's one discussion. But if you have a partner who is already in the industry then that conversation will go a lot differently. WHATS THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU'VE LEARNED "Unfortunately, be very reluctant in trusting people. Don't give people too much time to prove themselves, especially with a property management company. If they aren't doing what they should be doing, give them some room, but not too much room. At the end of the day it's not about being nice it's about running a business. When you take someone's money in it's even more important. You might have to make those hard decisions, but ultimately it's the right thing to do."
