Ep #193: Building a Multifamily Empire with 160,000 doors and More Than $15 Billion in Transactions - with Jerry Fink
Since being founded in 1996, Bascom has completed over $15.0 billion in multi-family and commercial value-added transactions, including more than 600 multifamily properties and 160,000 units. This ranks Bascom among the top 50 multifamily owners in the U.S.
During Bascom’s early years, the business plan was to acquire and re-position 300 to 500 unit apartment buildings in the midst of the foreclosure and job crisis of the early 1990s in California by creating value-added renovations and community outreach programs. During the late 90's, Jerry Fink and Bascom acquired 52,911 apartment units within 199 redevelopments and 3.1 million square feet of industrial and office properties, totaling in excess of $6 billion in transaction volume.
And to offer some personal insight as to the overall success that I’ve witnessed by Jerry and his group. I interviewed Jerry back in episode #91, which aired October of 2015. At that point, Jerry and his group had owned an estimated 70,000 doors. In just the last 3 years alone, the Bascom Group has more than doubled their multifamily transactional volume to more than 160,000 doors.

Ep #192: Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Benefits for RE Investors + How to Gain Value from a Fractional CFO Service - with Marcus Crigler
Marcus is a senior associate with the Missouri based firm, Duckett & Ladd CPA’s and advisors. After developing relationships with some of the biggest leaders in real estate investing, Marcus began to notice a problematic trend in many real estate portfolios; accounting and tax issues were being approached reactively instead of proactively.
Utilizing his firm’s extensive experience in real estate as his platform, Marcus has developed a strategic approach to increasing cash flow and reducing tax liability for his clients, representing over $300 million in assets.
He and the Duckett Ladd team have a unique “partner-focused approach” that helps their clients make quicker, more accurate financial decisions so CEOs and other leaders of the organization can spend their time doing what they’re most passionate about.
Today we’ll be covering two very important topics. The first is the tax cuts and jobs act that was signed into law by president Trump on December 22nd and went into effect on January 1st of this year. This new law is something that accounts and tax advisors have been scrambling to dissect and make sense of it all, to better advise their clients on how to take advantage of the benefits associated with these new changes. And so, my goal is to have you have each of you leave this podcast with a much clearer picture of how to take advantage of this within your real estate investing business.
The second topic we’ll be covering today, are the benefits of hiring a fractional CFO for your business. We’ll share our intimate experience of using a fractional CFO service and will go into detail on how you too can leverage this type of service to take your business to the next level.
