Real Estate can be one of the best means of reaching both Time and Financial Freedom. Here to give us some insights we have, Founder and CEO of the Apt-Guy, Best selling author and award winning syndicator, Bruce Petersen. Bruce is a syndicator and manager of large multi-family (apartments) projects. Over the past seven years he’s acquired and managed through his company, Bluebonnet Commercial Management, which boasts over 1100 units. Rather than just focus on money, he finds ways to impact resident's and staff's lives by providing value; after that the money comes. Through his book, Syndication is a B*tch, he reveals his proven systems and processes.
