WS538: Granular-Level Property Management and Its Moving Parts with Chris Wooten

The Real Estate Syndication Show

As we know, real estate is a great investment. But sometimes, it takes up so much time that the time-money relationship is very skewed. Chris Wooten, our guest today has firsthand experience of this. After retiring from the Marine Corps, he tried his hand at single-family and single-family wholesaling. However, he soon realized these niches didn’t align with his objectives, which were to have more control over his schedule and room for greater creativity. Instead, he chose to pursue multifamily and his asset management superpower. In this episode, Chris shares his self-education journey with us. Through constant consumption of podcasts and educational materials, along with attending networking events, Chris was able to build a granular understanding of every facet of the deal.---Our Gracious Sponsor: Gene Trowbridge and Jillian Sidoti, founding partners of the top syndication law firm Trowbridge Sidoti, have a legal team with over 88 years of combined legal experience.
