Industrial Real Estate Investing | An In Depth View with Drew Whalgren

September 17, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast, I’m your host AJ Osborne!

We’ve talked a lot about real estate here on the podcast, but we’ve never really dove into one asset class that has really peaked my interest… and that’s industrial space.

Today we have the expert himself Drew Whalgren on the podcast to discuss the in’s and out’s of industrial real estate investing. We talk about the various investing strategies that you can utilize to invest in industrial space. We talk about how he analyzes the industrial real estate market and it differs from alternative commercial real estate investment classes like multi-family.

There are incredible investment opportunities in the industrial space that you just don’t find or see in any other asset class. I’m excited to share this episode with you all and for Drew to help shed some light on these amazing assets.

Thanks for listening everybody!

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast, I’m your host AJ Osborne!

I have an awesome and incredibly interesting episode lined up for you all today with the one and only Matthew Sullivan, Founder and CEO of QuantumRE.

Now, this episode is going to differ slightly from most of my podcasts as I usually focus on the guest and their expertise or experience. Not only do we do that in today’s episode - but we also dive into what exactly QuantumRE is and what they do. Reason being, what Matthew and his team at QuantumRE is doing is so crazy interesting, it’s not something we can just gloss over. And I could bet most of you haven’t seen or heard of anything like this before.

Just to give a teaser - we’re talking about an innovative way to access your home’s equity without taking on an additional loan, how this is powered by blockchain, and what homeowners and investors alike can do to get involved.

Matthew shares the whole run down of what this all looks like, how he evaluates homes, where he’s investing and more. That said, I’m going to let you all get straight to it! Enjoy!

Thanks everybody!

The Anti-Financial Advisor Chris Miles | The Truth About Investing and Building Wealth

The Anti-Financial Advisor Chris Miles | The Truth About Investing and Building Wealth

August 26, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast! I’m your host AJ Osborne!

I’ve got an amazing guest lined up for you guys today who is going to help shed some light of TRUTH on the financial and investing world. I’m excited to introduce Chris Miles.

Chris started his career in financial advising from day one, but quickly realized that there were some major issues in the world of financial advising. Even going so far as to call the financial advising industry “broken”. Something he said during this podcast really sends this whole issue home. In relation to financial advisors in general - he says, “...are they making good money because they make good investments, or are they making money because they’re good salesmen?”.

Recognizing these issues, he chose to become the ANTI - financial advisor. A term he’s coined to help bring reality into financial advising.

We’re going to unpack some of these industry wide problems and help uncover some pitfalls that you can hopefully avoid. Apart from that, we’re going to talk about the keys that will help you work because you want to, not because you have to. We’re also going to dive into stock investing and shed some truth there as well.

Hopefully this helps spread some light on the issues and can help put you guys on the right track so you don’t waste your time or money in what could very well be just another sales pitch.

Thanks for listening everybody!
AJ

The Truth About Debt - How Debt Can Make or Break You

The Truth About Debt - How Debt Can Make or Break You

August 19, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast! I’m your host AJ Osborne! 

 

Debt - there are very few subjects that have gotten as bad a wrap as debt has. Don’t get me wrong, debt when you don’t understand it… can be downright deadly. But debt used as a rocket fuel for generating wealth and income… that’s when debt becomes a massive force of leverage. 

 

But how? How can taking on debt ever be a good thing? Isn’t buying all cash a better way to go? Isn’t paying off a loan as quickly as possible the best course of action? Yes and no, just like the above gives hint to - it depends on what kind of debt we’re talking about. 

 

Let’s clear this up once and for all - not all debt is BAD and not all debt is created equal. We have two kinds of debt - consumer debt (which is generally bad and that you should try to avoid). And then we have revenue producing debt (which is the sweet nectar of the gods for investors). 

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg and I couldn’t be more excited to help shed some light on this subject because I see it and hear it every single day. I hope this helps you more fully understand the different types of debt, when you should and SHOULDN’T be afraid of debt, and when you can use it effectively to help grow your wealth. 

 

Outside of that, I give a bit of economic back story in regard to capital,  the different types of markets, economic cycles, and more to really take a deep dive on the subject. 

 

Enjoy everybody and we’ll catch you next time!

Best Real Estate Investment Strategy for Today’s Market with Johnny Wolff

August 3, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast! I’m your host, AJ Osborne. 

 

Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to Johnny Wolff who is absolutely crushing the real estate investment world by doing some amazing repositioning and changing value of assets. 

 

Johnny is a financial analyst who moved to and is now living and investing in Kansas City, the city that he has identified to be one of the best cash-flowing real estate markets in the US. But what is “the best” real estate market? We cover this in the podcast and the get to the truth of what this really means. 

 

Johnny also shares in this podcast exactly how he changes the cashflow and revenue structure of the investments he’s buying, and what exactly he’s doing to still achieve huge spreads on his real estate investments, even in this crazy real estate market we’re seeing currently. Johnny also shares his thoughts on value, the details about getting started and realizing that you’re not going to generally hit a homerun deal on your very first deal, his thoughts on the current real estate market, keys to real estate investing strategy in the current market, and more.

 

Real estate is one of the few investments where you can achieve such amazing returns through forced and passive appreciation, realize such amazing tax benefits, and be able to utilize so many different strategies all within the same investment vehicle. As you know, I love real estate and this podcast today is an amazing breath of fresh air on how you can invest in and take advantage of real estate in the current state of the real estate market. This wasn’t a podcast or discussion that provided strategies for real estate investing 3 or 5 years ago, it’s what you can do right now today. 

 

Alright, get to it and get ready to take notes!

 

Thanks everybody, 

AJ

Growing Wealth Through Business Acquisition with Codie Sanchez

Growing Wealth Through Business Acquisition with Codie Sanchez

July 19, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast! I’m your host, AJ Osborne! 

 

It’s my honor and my pleasure to introduce you to the one and only Codie Sanchez. Codie has a background in finance and also worked as a journalist who covered some of the darkest and heaviest subject matter you could as a journalist - human trafficking. It was after this that she chose to pursue a career in finance. Reason being, she recognized that the placement of capital was what actually brought about change and impact to address world issues. As she says here in this podcast, the power of the pen is mighty, but the power of capital is mighty-er.

 

Codie got interested in buying businesses soon after by realizing the huge need and desire there is in the market place for business owners looking to offload their companies. Through this, we talk about everything from buying and selling businesses, to debt and how to use it to your advantage, the value of doing hard things, mindset, and a ton more.

Tune in, take notes, and we’ll see you next time! 

 

Thanks everybody!

From the North Side of Chicago to Owning 1,000 Doors with Van Sturgeon

From the North Side of Chicago to Owning 1,000 Doors with Van Sturgeon

June 29, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast, I’m your host, AJ Osborne!

It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Van Sturgeon. Van was born and raised in the Northside of Chicago helping his parents own and operate an apartment building. The economy was bad, vacancies were high, and the family had to perform all the repairs and maintenance on their own to limit cost and to make ends meet. This built the foundation for what was to come.

Van later built a company renovating real estate. This gave Van an inside look and connection to real estate investors who were buying and flipping homes while using his company as their go-to renovator. It didn’t take long for Van to recognize and realize the potential there was in real estate investing, whether that be buying, renovating and holding, or buying and flipping. He’s built an impressive portfolio and now has over 1k doors across the U.S. and Canada.

Today Van shares the truth about “finding deals”, the fundamentals of value, and his advice for anyone looking to start investing in real estate.

This episode is packed with tons of great information for anyone in the real estate world currently or those that are looking to break into real estate investing. Be sure to take notes, soak it up, and put to work the concepts Van shares with us today.

Thanks everybody,

AJ
