How To Get Into Commercial Real Estate Investing [If I Had to Start All Over]

I’ve been in commercial real estate since 2013 but only really started investing in 2019, after founding my own commercial brokerage. Since then, I’ve developed a 42-unit townhome community, acquired over 50,000 square feet of office and retail space, and am in the middle of a $19.2 million mixed-use development in East Nashville. And I get asked all the time: “How can I get into commercial real estate investing?” So, knowing what I know now, here’s what I would do if I had to start it all over.
