Alex is a short-term rental developer and manager in Ashville, NC. A former Marine who found his way to real estate investing, he now runs Sargon Investments, a short term rental development company that is working on 650 cabins over the next 3 years. He also writes for Bigger Pockets, runs a YouTube channel and recently launched a short term rental educational course to help people get into the industry.

This is a topic near and dear to me. The idea of taking years of hospitality experience and using it to create your own hospitality brand has grabbed me and I know it’s done the same to many other hospitality professionals. The trouble is taking real estate development from idea to reality is filled with hurdles and land mines. The analysis paralysis and anxiety are real, so where do go to take you one step closer to making your dream a reality? I hope this episode is it.

Alex has been there. He started small and is working to build an empire. He shares more about what he did and how did it, what to look out for and the people you should have on your team to help.

If you’re at all interested in getting into short term rentals, this episode is for you.
