Do you work closely with friends or family? It can be tough to balance work and personal lives, but if done correctly, it can develop into even deeper relationships. 

In today’s episode of The Real Estate Mindset Podcast, I chat with Dasha Beardsley about working with family. She has worked with Lone Star Captial and her brother for many years and offers insights on setting boundaries to keep work and personal lives separate. We dive into the current market and whether or not it’s a good time to sell. We also discuss what we think the future holds for those of us in real estate.

Our conversation offers guidance on working with investors, and how to share thoughtful gifts to develop those relationships. 

Dasha Beardsley directs investor relations and oversees marketing for Lone Star Capital. She is responsible for coordinating Lone Star’s in-person summits as well as the sponsoring of conferences around the country. Dasha graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California with a degree in Real Estate Development.
