So, you want to go for bigger deals, but your current network is pretty much tapped out. Maybe you struggled to raise $500K for your last deal, and you’d like to add a zero for the next one. How do you attract new investors and scale your capital raise?
Jonathan Barr is the Cofounder and Principal at JB2 Investments, a real estate investment firm specializing in 70-plus-unit value-add projects in high cashflow, landlord-friendly markets. Jonathan began his real estate career in 2009, facilitating the acquisition of 400 residential flips in the LA market that generated $22M in profit for his family’s business.
On this episode of Financial Freedom with Real Estate Investing, Jonathan joins me to explain what inspired him to invest outside the LA market, sharing the mental blocks he had to overcome to buy properties in the Midwest.

In nearly 300 episodes of the Apartment Building Investing podcast, I’ve talked to big names in real estate like Robert Kiyosaki, Brandon Turner and Grant Cardone. I’ve also had conversations with countless men and women you may not have heard of who achieved financial freedom through multifamily syndications.

Multifamily investors know the advantages of scale. But when it comes to residential assisted living or RAL, bigger isn’t always better. The big-box model often leads to poor healthcare outcomes, treating residents not as individuals but part of a process. So, how can investors scale senior living facilities without compromising care?
Loe Hornbuckle is CEO of Sage Oak Assisted Living and Memory Care and Cofounder of GoodHorn Capital, a real estate investment firm focused on recession-resistant asset classes including build-to-rent and senior living. Loe has a heart for improving the residential assisted living experience, providing residents with both the quality care associated with small RAL facilities and the advantages of scale.
On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Loe joins cohost Garrett Lynch and me to share his unique, hybrid approach to building assisted living and memory care facilities. Loe explains how his father’s bad experience in hospice inspired his interest in RAL and offers insight on applying his strategy to multifamily deals. Listen in to understand how Loe is solving the scaling problems of residential assisted living and find out if the business of caretaking is right for YOU.

Adversity is not optional. Whether you’re a Navy SEAL or a multifamily investor, you’re going to face difficult circumstances. And while you don’t have control over what happens, you DO control how you respond. Are you going to let adversity knock you down? Or will you rise to the occasion?
Chad Williams the bestselling author of SEAL of God, a memoir of his grueling journey through Naval Ops training and onto the war-torn streets of Iraq. Chad is also a sought-after international speaker, drawing on his experience as Navy SEAL to share lessons around teamwork, integrity, mental toughness and overcoming adversity, and he is set to deliver the keynote address at Deal Maker Live next week in Dallas.
On this episode of Apartment Building Investing, Chad joins cohost Drew Kniffin and me to explain how the principles he mastered as a SEAL apply to multifamily investing, challenging us to be servant leaders and stay calm in the face of adversity. Chad offers advice on staying the course in difficult times, describing how a strong WHY made him one of only 13 SEAL trainees to graduate (in a class of 173). Listen in for Chad’s insight on the choice you have to let adversity be a weight or a wing and learn to be resilient regardless of the challenges life brings your way!
