They have a wealth of information between them, and it was great to hear their stories — and their thoughts on today’s real estate economy.

Joe and George talked about getting started in the industry, and highlighted some of their earliest successes. We discussed why many people have a hard time breaking into real estate — both Joe and George agreed fear is the biggest culprit. Joe does a lot of mentoring, and pinpoints fear as the biggest hurdle to getting into real estate.

We also talked about how to build a real, long-lasting real estate business. That included speculation vs investing, maximizing return, and identifying the must-have skills in today’s real estate marketplace. With the current state of the economy, Joe and George expressed some concern over the market as a whole looking. But at the end of the day, real estate is a great hedge against inflation. It was great to get their thoughts on risk and reward in the current economy.

We ended on some tips for new investors — be sure to check those out. Joe and George have some great advice for real estate investors at any level.

BCF 302: Capital Raising in 2022 with Greg Dickerson

With 2021 winding down, it’s time to set goals around development and acquisition deals for the next 12 months. Greg Dickerson is an expert on keeping an eye on the future while staying active in real estate. Throughout his career, he bought, developed, and sold $250 million in real estate. His clients currently have roughly $2 billion in assets under management and through his coaching business, Greg helps people scale and raise capital. He’s built and sold off 12 companies, compounding the profits instead of pouring them back into the business. With this method, he was able to scale without any partnerships. Greg chose instead to hire the best, most talented folks he could find to run his businesses and learned from them.

Things are definitely wild in today’s economic environment, and we get into what 2022 could potentially look like in terms of raising capital. Alternative asset classes like real estate are always going to be appealing to high-net-worth clients with preservation of capital as their main goal. Despite what some say, inflation may not be transitory and there’s a lot of pressure on the retail spender. Putting your money into real estate is always going to be the safest place, followed by investing in companies that are needed for everyday life. We get into cryptocurrency as well and what it could look like in our near future.

What’s Inside:

  • Outlook on capital raising in 2022.
  • How to scale without partnerships.
  • Outlook on cryptocurrency vs. real estate assets.
