Chris starts off by sharing a little bit of his background and explaining what a Class B Industrial is. The major effect of location for this kind of business will also be discussed, as well as the essential dynamics for making more money. Moreover, we will look into why real estate people sell if it’s good. Does a successful real estate capital manager end up in buy and hold?
