I was interviewed by Whitney Sewell of The Real Estate Syndication Show on the topic of “Joint Ventures: The Cheapest, Easiest, Fastest and Safest Alternative to Syndication”.  Click here to access that on-demand podcast interview now.  Here is the description of the show and what you will learn:


A lot of us talk about joint ventures or “JV’s” and often assume that we, and the people around us, understand what they are and how they function. In this episode, Jeff explains what joint ventures really are, and why he believes they are the cheapest, easiest, fastest, and safest alternative to syndication. Often times the terms joint venture, partnership, and syndication get thrown around interchangeably, and in this conversation, Jeff clearly defines each of these terms, explains the key differences between them, highlights the pitfalls of syndication, as well as the incredible benefits of a joint venture. By the end of this episode, you’ll have a clearer understanding and greater insight into joint ventures to better equip you in your future decisions.
