Today on the Real Estate Asset Management Podcast we are joined by former syndicator turned lawyer, Gene Trowbridge, to talk about voting rights, 1031s, and closing an entity. Gene shares his journey of moving from commercial real estate to syndication, and finally to law at the age of 45. Despite his predictions of retiring from law after 15 years, he’s still deep in it 27 years later and, along with his partners, has written offerings for more than five billion dollars of money raised. In this episode, Gene shares his wisdom with us and talks us through everything to consider when preparing to sell an asset, how to determine the selling point, and what to do once a property is sold. Covering everything from discerning the right time to close an LLC to the three choices you have when it comes to 1031s, this episode offers invaluable insights from someone who has truly seen the industry from all angles. Join us for an insightful conversation with a veteran in the field as he advises us on how to avoid the mistakes he’s stumbled upon in his long and successful career. By the end of this episode, you’ll have a much clearer idea of how to go about asset disposition the right way!
