My guest today believes that the Best Time to Buy Real Estate was 20 Years ago, but the next best time is NOW.

Joe DiSanto built a multi-million-dollar post-production company, produced critically acclaimed films and Emmy-winning TV show, all while investing millions of dollars in real estate. Joe semi-retired at the age of 43, and now he’s sharing his lifetime of fiscal know-how through his company Play Louder, which helps people increase their net worth and strategize their plan for the future.

Today Joe shares the process he went through to acquire and build out two separate commercial office conversion projects for his company’s use. He utilized an SBA loan that he acquired through Lehman Brothers just before they collapsed at the start of the Great Recession. He also talks about the General Contractor challenges he had on his second property and the huge cost overruns that he had to mitigate himself.

Along the way we’ll discuss hydraulic car stackers that helped him add 4,500 sq. ft. to his office space, the two Emmy’s he won, and the HBO documentary series he produced with Dave Grohl from Nirvana and the Foo Fighters.
