All In Podcast

70: Michael Flight, CEO at Liberty Real Estate Fund

Daniel Giordano

SUMMARY:

On this episode of the All-In Podcast, Daniel invites real estate expert Michael Flight to discuss what it means for him to have gone all-in.

Michael opens by sharing a little of his background and what made him want to get into real estate investment in the first place. Some of these stories showcase wins, while others detail heavy losses that Michael and his business partners suffered. Ultimately, he says, it’s how you take those losses and build a better plan moving forward.

One of the key takeaways from this conversation is what Michael says about preparing oneself for a career in real estate. Beyond just understanding the market, someone going into real estate investment needs to be proficient in many complementary skills. For example, they need to be financially savvy. They need to be good with people. They need to have patience and common sense. In other words, it’s so much more than just trading properties and understanding the market.

Michael believes that if you’re passionate enough and you surround yourself withthe right people, you should have no problem making headway into a field like commercial real estate. With more than three decades of experience, it’s reasonable to say that Michael’s advice is top-notch.
