Michael Girdley (@Girdley), Mills Snell (@thegeneralmills), and Bill D’Alessandro (@BillDA) talk about a 15-year-old Telecom Tower Business in the southeast side of Dallas. We share our perspectives on this business transaction and determine whether we’d buy this or not. The rise of technology is transforming every aspect of society, and in this episode, we will discuss whether the impending technological changes will be beneficial or harmful. In addition, we will discuss the factors that we believe should be prioritized by a buyer.
