We're delighted to have K. Trevor Thompson as a guest on The Deal Makers podcast. Trevor is an accredited investor in 15 active deals and a GP on his first deal of 240 doors in San Antonio and has extensive experience in the attraction entertainment industry, which he took into CRE investing.
"I was looking in Austin, I was looking in Dallas, and I was getting nowhere close to paying what other people were paying. I couldn't understand how they could justify the prices. They beat me by a million dollars. So I switched to smaller markets. I'd say all the big boys look at 100+ stores, and all the little boys look for 36 and less. So I switched and started looking for 36-100 to try to find that little sweet spot niche where I could be competitive, at least be able to stand a chance to get to the finish line."
We also chatted with K. Trevor Thompson about his unique career trajectory from working for Ripley's Believe it Or not and running a haunted house to the world of CRE, the differences between passive and active investing, and how he uses his social media presence for networking.
Make sure you tune in!
