When I think of investing, I think of it in terms of baseball. When I was younger, I was swinging for the fences and striking out. I was so eager to get into the game that I didn't consider protecting the downside.
Now after 20 years in real estate, I look for that base hit. Sometimes that base hit ends up as a double and even a few times an accidental home run. However,the intent is to find safe and steady returns to myself and my investors.
Principal in Fulton Management Company (2003-Present). The focus since 2010 has been the creation of joint partnerships to purchase distressed real estate in the Grand Rapids market and re-position to income producing college rentals. Over the last 18 years in real estate, I've become disciplined in a number of different practices. From large multi-family acquisitions to land contracts and discounted mortgages.
