E247 - Why He Left A Lucrative Opportunity In Tech to Pursue Real Estate

The hybrid approach to investing is a term that we will begin to hear more and more. It is the process of focusing on passive investing and then creating either a fund of funds or acting as a registered representative under a broker-dealer to direct capital. There are many reasons why this approach is beneficial and due to these benefits, the popularity of this approach will continue to climb.  Our guest for today is Spencer Hilligoss who is a passive real estate investor, co-sponsor and former technology leader. His company, Madison Investing, has co-sponsored deals totaling more than 5,000 units which have a combined value of more than $600M. Spencer invests in syndications as an LP and actively leads Madison Investing alongside his co-founder and wife Jennifer.
