In the real estate investor world, it’s very easy to be laser-focused on raising capital, raising rents, and increasing your bottom line. But one thing that can cripple a business is adding more debt to maximize profits.

My guest today is Hunter Thompson. Hunter has helped hundreds of investors close deals in commercial real estate and controls $100M in assets. He is the Founder of Asym Capital, the Host of the Cash Flow Connections Real Estate Podcast and the author of Raising Capital for Real Estate: How to Attract Investors, Establish Credibility, and Fund Deals.

I absolutely loved this interview because we’re on the same page with so many key concepts. Building trust and credibility takes effort and time, and Hunter has done it with incredible success.

In this episode, we talk about some of the economic indicators that’s driving some of the supply and demand issues right now, particularly in Arizona. Hunter shares his AENC system and how that has been at the core of his success. We also dig into the importance of speed and moving quickly in your business and why finding your niche is so important for long term success.
