Tyler Bennett 3:27

Thanks for having me, Mat. Yeah, pleasure to be here. And, and looking forward to it.

Mat Zalk 3:31

Let’s start at the beginning. What? What got you started in real estate?

Tyler Bennett 3:37

Absolutely. Good question. So back in 2003 2004, I was kind of going to finance track, I’ve always liked numbers, analytics, kind of investment banking or investing. And I have an older brother, who is a general contractor and developer, and then some buddies that kind of got me over into the mortgage and real estate side of things. And, and the more I learned about it, the more I really enjoyed the really the investment side of the strategy side of understanding the numbers and and then, you know, ultimately, what led to using real estate as a vehicle, you know, an investment banker might use stock market, or m&a business or whatever they’re doing or they’re specialized in and, and so I just I really enjoyed kind of the game of real estate, but more importantly, you know how power done right, how it can be a vehicle to improve people’s financial lives.

Mat Zalk 4:37

So you started buying real estate for yourselves and then and then you transitioned into helping others buy single family residential units.

Tyler Bennett 4:42

Yeah, yeah. 100%. And, you know, at that time in, oh, five, I mean, I was early 20s. And we were doing all kinds of real estate and the reality is, you couldn’t go wrong, right, the market was exploding. So we’re doing fix and flips we’re doing some buy and hold. We’re doing land development were to spec homes, and everything went right until nothing went right. Basically, you know, in 2008, the financial crisis and, and, you know, we learned a lot through that, which ultimately led me to this kind of specializing in single families, because there was a small portion of my own portfolio, I made a bunch of money, and I gave it all back right when it crashed. And I saw the same thing with my clients, but a small chunk of my portfolio and my clients portfolio survived. And it was these entry level single family homes, the value went down, but not nearly as much as some of the other asset classes inside of real estate. But more importantly, we still have customers. And in fact, demand increased because people were losing their homes, but they still needed a place to live. And so we were able to hold those those homes and, and not have vacancies. In fact, rents went up in Oh, 809 for us. And ultimately, that’s what led me to develop in a whole kind of niche and box that we work inside of with these entry level single family homes, because it’s, it’s kind of this formula that works and up down and sideways markets, right?
