Key Takeaways: “ I love and have been friends with many different investors who are, ‘Hey, this is my business. This is full time. I am, or I’m aggressively pursuing real estate with the intention to make it my full-time thing’. But I think it’s also a very viable approach for someone like me who’s got a full-time job that’s not real estate investing and still intends to deliver significant returns and excess of alternatives like stocks or other different asset classes through privately held real estate that I own and control.” – Scott Trench

“My philosophy around this is ’I’m going to buy consistent properties and I’m going to keep them reasonably leveraged  but make sure that I have strong cash flow and a strong cash cushion to fall back on’.” – Scott Trench
