Evan Holladay was able to skip many mistakes by optimizing for his passion. As a pre-med student, he realized early on that he was not a fan of science and mathematics. Rather than trying to optimize his life around medicine, he discovered real estate in the way of a large, $56 million development and knew he had to be a part of it. This kicked off his long career around multifamily acquisition and development, specifically affordable and workforce housing in Tennessee and Louisiana. To date, he has sourced and developed over $100 million, helping build and acquire numerous affordable housing projects.
In today’s episode, Evan shares what he learned on his journey running a large development group where he and his team build multifamily workforce housing developments. He also shares some of the pitfalls that new developers need to consider when launching new projects of their own.
