Episode 7

Mark Crawford

Today, Mark Crawford, CEO of Land Income, and I sit down to discuss farmland real estate as an investment. Not being familiar with this asset class in real estate I was blown away with the returns, rationality, and risk profile. We spoke about water shortage, population growth, supply chain effects on farmland, and many other interesting topics. Please see below for more information:

Mark helps investors of all sizes – from individuals, to institutions and trust funds – revamp vanilla portfolio allocations by adding non-correlated, income producing, and inflation hedged investments in premium farmland, water supply, agricultural development, and other asset-based investments.

As a licensed California Real Estate Broker having over 40 years of expertise in the farmland, agriculture, and asset-based investment space who has grown and sold 4 real estate LLCs through fluctuating market cycles, and allocated over $100,000,000 of investor capital, Mark understands the challenges of the asset-based investment landscape and how daunting it can be.

This is why he is proud to say (I’m outstanding in my field 🌾👴🏼 🌾) He has helped hundreds of investors make millions of dollars and have a network of founders that are experts in the farmland and agricultural industries. 🚜 📈

Episode 6

Lorna Auerbach

Lorna Auerbach oversees the asset management functions of her family’s multi-state commercial investment portfolio as President and CEO of Auerbach Realty Holdings, LLC. In Part 1 of our interview, we discuss the benefits of viewing core company values, employees, and entrepreneurship through a long-term lens, and what matters most in mentorship and family business. In addition to her professional accomplishments, Lorna is a fitting example of the kind of impacts generational success can have on a broader scale. As a second-generation investor, she has followed in her father’s footsteps in leveraging business success toward numerous philanthropic and social justice causes, and the large-scale impacts of her efforts are many — including bringing about changes in legislation aimed toward bringing an end to sex trafficking and child sexual abuse.

Gelt, Inc has created a portfolio of over $2 billion in valuation. Keith invest in different property types across the western United States. This was a very fun conversation that you are sure to hear some great insights.
