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.

Dan Handford is the Carolinas-based managing partner of PassiveInvesting.com, a private equity real estate firm focusing on both multifamily and self-storage facilities. Dan wears lots of hats, from asset management, acquisitions, broker relationships, and investor recruitment. Throw in his role as host of Multifamily Investor Nation, and Dan has lots of insight to share on the passive investing landscape. He and Lance dig into his audacious goals and methods—the nuances within the Class A and Class B asset classes, his portfolio model of buying self-storage assets, why he’s bullish on Boise, the up and downsides of blind pool funds, how he uses social media to grow his business, and the importance of the SWAN (Sleep Well at Night) Principle.
