In this episode, learn from his story as he shares his passion and why he chose to focus on impact investing. He'll also share why he chose to invest in apartments, how he syndicated his deals, and how he was able to help others by providing affordable housing.

“We focus on creating a difference, impact investing, doing it in a way that falls under a capitalistic paradigm. So if we can't make a difference and we can't make money doing it, then it's not our mission.”
