Play episode

Lance is the Founder and Managing Partner of Verivest, an end-to-end real estate investment platform designed to bring transparency and trust to middle-market investing, and a Principal in Fairway America, a real estate private equity firm in Portland, Oregon.

Ryan Daigle of Carolinas-based Flywheel Equity is a former software engineer turned multi-family operator. Ryan started Flywheel with the desire to make real estate available to everyday investors, and has built a network of like-minded “technologist investors.” The unique, analytical mindset of this group requires a commitment to transparency and education, which is music to Lance’s ears. He and Ryan break down Flywheel’s approach, and discuss how passive investors need to question a sponsor’s criteria and methodologies before jumping in.
