Our guest for this week’s show is commercial real estate investor and developer, Ray Alcorn. I have studied Ray’s teachings for many years and was very excited when we finally landed him as a guest on our show.  Since 1980, Ray has been active in the acquisition, sale, development, financing, and equity placement of income producing properties valued at over $250,000,000. His experience covers a wide range of real estate, including retail, office, multi-family, manufactured housing, hotel and restaurant properties.

Here’s What You’ll Learn

  • How Ray got his start in the Real Estate business by doing various low paying jobs for his father who then owned a large mobile home retailer.
  • Why he decided to leave the comfort of his family business at a young age to venture out and do his own development deals.
  • The reasons why he feels that the 12 years spent on the board of his local planning commission were the years where he obtained his best real estate education.
  • Why Ray says that you should never waiver from your investment criteria…no matter what.
  • Why he feels that we’re on the verge of another market correction and how he plans on dealing with it.
  • Ray shares with us his proven process of repositioning value-add office properties.
  • What advice he would give himself if he could go back and have a conversation with himself when he was just getting started.
  • Why he encourages new investors to get their feet wet by working for a professional property management company.
  • And much more
