If you’re worried about the time commitment of raising capital, let us introduce you to Esther Reizes-Lowenbein, who not only worked as a broker, capital raiser, and investor but also is raising her eight children while doing it. Fortunately for Esther, raising capital is something she loves to do, as she has a strong communication background with her former training in speech pathology.
If you’re getting the itch to start investing in bigger deals, but don’t know how to get started, Esther can help. She walks through the different roles in commercial real estate, whether to invest, syndicate, or stick with small deals, and how to become a capital raiser yourself (the right, legal way).
