For those who want to invest in real estate, but don't want the responsibility of managing and owning a property OR may not have the capital to invest in bigger deals, syndications are a great investment vehicle. And that’s something we’ve talked a lot about on this show.

But how do you know which syndication is going to serve you best?

Today’s guest, Spencer Hilligoss, is CEO and Co-Founder of Madison Investing — a company that carefully vets sponsors, markets, and deals, to create passive income opportunities for busy professionals (just like you).

What makes Madison Investing different, is that they’re not fixated on growing the fastest, but rather, growing for the long-term. They’re focused on, as Spencer puts it, “mult-deal, multi-year, multi-decade relationships.

So, when it comes to bringing operators and investors together, his number one priority is being intentional about who he partners with. His approach may take a bit longer, but he believes building solid relationships from the beginning is a better formula for ensuring investors prosper and hit their goals.

In our conversation, you’ll hear about Spencer’s former life as a Silicon Valley tech executive — and why he decided to leave a 13-year track record building high-performing teams across five companies (three of them, software "unicorns"- valued at over $1B).

We also dig into how his company sources deals, finds operators, and serves up strong investment opportunities that offer cash flow and growth for passive investors. That and a whole lot more!
