The harder the problem, the bigger the reward... and real estate developers who can solve affordable housing problems can do very, very well.

Enter today's guest, Evan Holladay, who reached 1,300 units before the age of 30 through a combination of focus, relationship-building, and a deep understanding of the rules of the game.

In this high-level episode, you'll learn how Evan and his team apply creative financing techniques to multimillion dollar projects; how they takes advantage of tax credits and grants and put together public-private partnerships; and why patience and persistence can lead to huge profits in the development game.
