Any real estate developers on here? Curious how you broke into the industry, was it your first job out of college, did you have insider connections etc. Super fascinated by the industry, but it’s very opaque.

I’ll give you my story. I was a big law lawyer and started later on in investment in commercial real estate. Started companies later and went into investment. Landlords, development, are different things. We’re looking at building, but that is very local. Feel free to DM me if you’d like to discuss, but this an industry I’m definitely getting into.

My brother & fiancée have asked my daughters to be flower girls in their wedding.
