Aaron worked several years for his father and learned determination, tenacity and to follow one course to success.  Aaron faced many challenges on his first apartment transaction. His initial management company was not focused and had to be replaced immediately. Putting a transaction together is like putting a puzzle together.  Aaron discussed the genesis on his latest acquisition- La Jolla Terrace Apartments. Aaron had built a personal relationship with the listing agent for over the last 5 years. The property received over 15 LOI (letter of intent) offers from other potential buyers. He made it to the best and final. His offer was not the highest. The seller requested a personal conference call with the buyer to discuss his purchase game plan. He felt very positive after the call. He wanted to make sure the seller understood his buying passion. Aaron had his financing in place and let his seller know he was prepared. Buyer moved forward with Aaron. Aaron is persistent and has positive expectations of success. Aaron raised $7 million with 70 investors for La Jolla.  Aaron recommends the book The E-Myth: Working ON your business…instead of IN your business. Aaron started with 7 investors and now has a database of over 100+ investors. He learned that you must be transparent with your investors to succeed.  To receive our FREE 15 page report on the FUNDAMENTALS OF MULTIFAMILY FINANCING 101 and to learn more about upcoming events at Old Capital Speaker Series please email us at INFO@OldCapitalLending.com Interested in learning more about how Multifamily Financing and connecting with Michael Becker and Paul Peebles.
