From the NFL to Huge Commercial and Multifamily Success with Logan Freeman

Just Start Real Estate with Mike Simmons

For today’s episode, I’m excited to welcome real estate investor, developer, and founder of LiveFree Investments, Logan Freeman. He has found his niche in the industry acting as an investment property specialist, actually representing buyers instead of sellers in the transaction process. Completing over 120 transactions in less than a year, Logan relies on his established processes and priorities to guide his profit-producing activities. He continually invests in himself so that he can provide great value to his investors, making sure to pivot and listen to what the market is providing. Logan is also the host of the LiveFree Investors Podcast where he interviews business owners and investors from around the country.  Logan first shares his background story with us. He finds his home town to have more of a fixed mindset and says he’s always had a growth mindset. He believes this fixed mindset was ingrained in him because of two reasons, which he is still reflecting on. His mother worked two jobs to provide for their family. And that was one reason he thinks that even though she's not really a growth mindset type of person, she did what she had to do. And then the second one is that his dad, from an early age, instilled in him the feeling that you can do whatever you want to, but you have to set your mind to it. Logan talks about the menial jobs he had when he was a teenager and the lessons they taught him. He also talks about the role that playing sports had in his life. He had the awesome opportunity to play football both in college and in the NFL, and he shared the difficulties related to this, but also how it shaped who he would become. In the course of a six month period, he got cut from the NFL, was no longer an athlete and had to find his identity, lost 120 pounds, went back to school while working full-time, and he lost his father after a long battle with drug and alcohol addiction. It was a very tumultuous period for Logan, but really formed his journey forward. Logan shares how he completed his first live-in flip in 2013. He discusses the different ways he found the money to finance his real estate deals and how he expanded into the multifamily market. Logan also discusses more creative financing options such as a Delaware Statutory Trust Structure (DST). We also talked about affordable housing and how Logan uses it for his business.  Logan takes the time to explain the concept of syndication to our listeners. Logan’s favorite book on this topic is Principles of Real Estate Syndication by Samuel K. Freshman. He calls it “the textbook for syndication” and he tells us how it helped him immensely in building the sector of his business. Logan talks about the different ways that his company, Live Free Investments, works with investors in the Kansas City area. They act as a broker with their clients, placing the tenants, managing the property, and providing visibility into any rehab work that needs to be done. They also are involved in equity syndications, sourcing investment opportunities to investors which allow them to be part of an asset class they may not have otherwise been able to invest in. Don’t miss this incredibly honest and informative conversation with businessman and podcaster, Logan Freeman! Make today the day you become a faithful listener of the Just Start Real Estate Podcast as we provide you with insight into actionable real estate investing and business development wisdom! Notable Quotes: “What I learned as I was going through collegiate sports was that you get to affect your results and you are impacted by the decisions and the choices that you make.” Logan Freeman “I'm a big believer that I can't sell or be a part of something I don't believe in.” Logan Freeman “There are certain types of investors and there's a big difference between active and passive investors.” Logan Freeman “I created what I call a capital raising machine. It all starts with reputation, leadership, and visibility. ” Logan Freeman “I have built a massive following of over 10.5K people on LinkedIn that engage with me on a regular basis.” Logan Freeman “It's my job as a real estate broker to build relationships with sellers.” Logan Freeman “People want to understand who you are. People invest in a person, not necessarily a brand unless you are Apple or something.” Logan Freeman Links: Logan’s Website  Logan’s Instagram Logan’s Twitter Logan’s LinkedIn  Logan’s Facebook  Principles of Real Estate Syndication 7 Figure Flipping Return on Investments Just Start Real Estate JSRE on Facebook Mike on Facebook Mike on Instagram Mike on LinkedIn Mike on Twitter Level Jumping: How I Grew My Business to Over $1 Million in Profits in 12 Months

113: Combating Homelessness Through Commercial Developments with Logan Freeman

Millennial Real Estate Investor

Based out of Kansas City, Missouri, Logan Freeman joins us this week to share his story on how he went from owning less than 40 units after a few years, to in a span of 8 months, owning over 500 units! Logan focuses on commercial developments and master leasing these buildings (meaning one lease for multiple units/properties between tenant and owner) to non-profit homeless organizations such as reStart. These partnerships help to rehabilitate individuals who have fallen into homelessness and get them back on their feet and a part of society once again. Up to date, Logan’s goal is to continue to live out his passion in providing affordable housing for people who are in need, as well as continue to work to stay profitable. He wants to educate others about alternative investments within real estate, and show them the different niches available that wealthy people have been utilizing for generations now that these investments are becoming common practice and readily accessible. Takeaways from our conversation with Logan: 1) Realize what your roadblocks are. One common problem successful investors run into is succeeding too much too soon. By all means, if you have goals to build a scalable business and want to build a large operation, do it. Along the way, just keep your attention open to weak points within the business structure. As Logan explains in his failed deal that cost him $200K, it wasn’t the deal itself that was bad. He knew that deal to be a great one! It was he, himself who was holding that deal back. He got overconfident, wore too many hats, and lacked the experience required to pull off the deal successfully. So as he notes, figure out the different jobs and roles within a deal (or business) and assign the right people to those roles. By doing so, you’ll get more done and get along further. 2) Swallow your pride. Going back to that failed deal that cost Logan $200K, he explains that he didn’t have to pay out that cash. There was nothing legally binding that required him to do that. But for Logan, it was bigger than the law and the cash. It was his reputation and moral conscience at stake. As Logan explains, when you do the wrong thing, your negative reputation spreads like wildfire. So when put in that perspective, that monetary value diminished. He fessed up to his mistake, got out of the way, and in doing so, learned a valuable lesson. Take ownership of your actions, be the buck, and move on. 3) “Doing well by doing good.” This is the mantra that Logan uses for his business. This is what led him to real estate. This is what led him to non-profit work. And this is what led him to teaching others how to succeed in business. Logans explains it well—on one hand, yes, business is business and the objective is to turn a profit. On the other hand, however, that doesn't mean you can’t make money by making the world a better place—by doing something that’s greater than profit alone. So whether you want to be a mom-and-pop landlord or a world-wide real estate corporation, don’t forget (or take for granted) the power and responsibility you hold for communities and individuals with each property.  4) Go out and play the game. The more successful you are, the easier it becomes to achieve success. Common reasons for that is because of experience, network, and opportunities. Just like physical momentum, success builds on another. The hardest part is getting that first push to move. Logan mentions that he’s had the great fortune to be able to work on his life passion and serve people through his business. And while a lot of that is attributed to connections with other people, the results are not achieved by accident. The results stem from methodical and intentional plans and action. You can either sit on the sidelines and wait for the perfect opportunity, or you can create those opportunities yourself. We suggest the latter. And combine that with persistence, magic happens. If Logan could go back and talk to his 16 year old self, he’d tell him, “Be open to everything and attached to nothing.” An unexpected benefit of real estate investing, Logan said, is the excitement he gets that comes from making a positive impact on the world, as well as being pushed by his business to become a better and better version of himself. A piece of advice Logan would tell his friends looking to get started in real estate would be to first ask them if they want to be an “active” or “passive” investor. From there, it’s a matter of laying out the steps and groundwork to get to your goals. Logan recommends using gTasks and Monday to help you stay productive, organized, and on track. Logan recommends reading The ONE Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan as it helped give him clarity in his life, and he believes it can do the same for you.
