David Lawver is a mortgage lending expert, real estate investor, and entrepreneur, who took his mortgage brokerage business from $200k to $12M/year in revenue.
His years in the mortgage industry naturally lead him into real estate investing. He started with single-family homes, dabbled in short-term rentals and apartment buildings, and eventually got into retail centers, which became his most profitable real estate asset class. Since 2014, David has acquired over $75M of real estate projects.
In this episode, I dig into David’s story, his progression from broker to investor, and what makes retail centers such an attractive vertical for him.
We also discuss the value of great mentors, his process for recruiting and grooming a top-performing sales team, the VC business model, real estate tax strategies, and much more.
