My Top 10 Lessons From 20 Years of Managing Private Investments

Updated: Feb 8

Real estate syndications pool money from multiple investors to collectively invest in a real estate project, allowing them to participate in larger and potentially more lucrative real estate deals that might be beyond their individual financial capacity.

Investing in several of these projects is like owning a slice of a professionally managed real estate empire versus taking that same money to buy a couple of duplexes and dealing with tenants, toilets, termites, and trash.


Real estate syndications work only when the sponsor (that’s Volhawk) earns the trust of investors (that’s you).


Reflecting on my journey and drawing from my 20 years of managing private investments for ultra-high-net-worth clients...

I've distilled 10 key lessons that underscore the importance of integrity and competence in managing investments:

  1. Protect your investors’ money like it’s your own.

  2. Analysis + transparency = credibility.

  3. Attention to detail is critical.

  4. Asking the right questions is more important than having all the answers.

  5. Understanding people is just as important as technical expertise.

  6. Embrace the value of getting help early and often.

  7. Surround yourself with people who excel in areas where you lack expertise.

  8. If you have good ideas, work hard, and put clients first, money will follow.

  9. Stay humble – own up to mistakes and make things right.

  10. Without a sterling reputation you have nothing.
