Andy Sinclair likes to say that if you lived in the Midwest from May through October, it would be the best place you've ever lived. For the CEO of Midloch Investment Partners, the Midwest is the Mid-Best.

Andy is an accomplished real estate investment professional whose experience spans real estate private equity investments and institutional brokerage. He has invested and participated in approximately $2.0 billion in real estate transactions. Andy considers himself a value investor with an appreciation for growth-oriented investing. He believes that people, management teams, and the right locations are the heartbeat of real estate.

While the Midwest may not have the buzz of the Sun Belt or Southwest, the region has a lot to offer, including solid job fundamentals, a workforce with strong work ethic, good underlying growth and, perhaps most importantly, better valuations.

One of the most unique things about Midloch is that they tend to look for deals in the $5 million to $50 million range, too small for most large competitors but small enough that just about any group can participate, and there are good deals to be had. With a deep expertise in the region, Midloch has built strong partnerships that bring value to every deal.

Key Takeaways:

  • Find people that want to help you grow. If it’s a GP that teaches you how to be an investor or an operator that can help you improve, get exposure to all parts of real estate and find a mentor.
  • Find the right partners. Look for alignment of goals & business plans and share a vision.
  • The most important thing to look for in a partner is operational experience; can your partners operate effectively?
  • Don't wait until it's too late to enjoy life. When you get a bonus or a windfall, take a big chunk of the money and do something for yourself that you've always wanted to do.
