We all started our real estate journey’s separately, but when we realized how much more we could do together through combining our complementary skill sets, the Wild Oak Capital team was formed, and we’ve never looked back since! Today’s episode gives listeners a chance to get to know the four partners; Shane Brooks, John Weaver, Ben Nelson, and me, Eric Nelson. We get vulnerable about what led us into the multi family real estate space, and what keeps us passionate about it. We all have a deep desire to be able to spend our time doing what we love, while also building legacies and positively impact the lives of others, and we see multi family investing as the best way to achieve these goals. We’re immensely grateful for our team and our listeners, and we’re excited to give you some insider insights into what makes us tick!
