Oftentimes you look out for investments that enable you to grow your income quickly, but are you sure those investments make you feel peace of mind? In today’s episode, we have a great conversation with John Chelius on why investing in assets that make you feel comfortable is important. John is a managing partner at Montlake Residential, a firm that focused on value-add workforce housing in major US cities with high barriers to entry, strong job, and population growth, and favorable regulatory environments.

John started his career in Los Angeles helping large institutional groups like Colony Capital and Tricon Residential buy, renovate, and manage large single-family home portfolios in Southern California. Starting in 2014 he started buying and managing workforce apartment buildings in California, Texas, and Arizona and has sponsored more than 1,700 units, most of which we still own.
