Jonathan Twombly spent 12 years as a corporate attorney for some of the most prestigious law firms in New York, Boston, and London, before switching tracks and becoming a full-time real estate investor and syndicator.
Now, Jonathan is the owner of Two Bridges Asset Management and his attention to detail, creative thinking, and tendency to notice overlooked connections has had a huge impact on his returns, as well as those of his investors.
Today we'll discuss how Jonathan chooses his partners, and why you shouldn't treat your partnership like a marriage. You'll also learn how Jonathan overcame some setbacks early on when his deals didn't pan out, and how he spent three years chasing opportunities before completing his first deal.
Jonathan also shares tips on working with attorneys, how he presents his opportunities and tells the story of the deal, what it means to have a fiduciary responsibility to your investors, and his outlook on the multifamily and apartment market.
Jonathan also hosts the Real Estate Launchpad podcast (I was a guest on episode #28), and can be reached through his website & Facebook page:

Today we're going to talk about Raising Capital from a source that we typically don't consider when putting together the equity for our investment opportunities. We've discussed syndication and raising funds from high net-worth accredited investors, but what about the Ultra-Wealthy - those with over $30 Million in net worth?
My guest today is Richard Wilson, the Founder & CEO of Family Office Club, and he is going to help us understand what the Ultra-Wealthy look for when investing their capital, and the top 6 headaches of Family Offices worth over $100 Million. He'll also reveal how you might be able to help them while funding your own opportunities.
Richard also shares what he teaches investors about coming up with their 'one-line pitch', why its better to be 'long-term greedy' and create lasting relationships with family offices, what a typical deal structure might look like, and what not to do when pitching to the Ultra-Wealthy.
Richard is also the author of "Centimillionaire Migraines", as well as other books on Family Offices. He runs the largest community of family offices globally called "The Family Office Club", with over 1,750 registered family offices, and hosts the "Family Office Podcast".
