Episode #164: Nick Stageberg – Infinite Returns
Show Notes

Where does property value lie? And what are the benefits of taking such good care of your property so that it’s worth more to you than the marketplace? Joining us today to explore these questions and to break down his enlightened approach to investing in real estate is Nick Stageberg, a software tech startup veteran and founder of Black Swan Real Estate, an established firm with over 300 million assets under management. We talk with Nick about his Infinite Returns strategy, his aversion to selling, and why cultivating a long-term mindset is the best way to ensure you make wise investment decisions. Learn how Nick uses deep value-adds to ensure that his units remain in excellent condition many years down the line — when others would typically require new rounds of repairs — and why vertical integration has been such a game changer for his business. Our conversation also covers Nick’s sophisticated approach to aligning his incentives with those of his investors and why serving others, rather than yourself, is such a powerful motivator. To learn more about Nick’s approach and his many fascinating insights on investing in real estate, be sure to tune in!
