Industrial Real Estate Investing with Neil Wahlgren

From a life as a military pilot in aviation to leaving the safety net and the opportunity of both while embarking on a new career path in entrepreneurship and real estate, Neil Wahlgren knows how it feels to step out of your comfort zone into the unknown. He pushed himself to get where he is today, where he is adding immense value, skill, and wealth in the investment space.

We chat about:

  • Industrial Real Estate - The different types and the asset class as a whole in the US
  • Sale-Leaseback Transactions – a specialized form of acquisition where an owner-occupant sells their owned real estate and simultaneously signs a long-term lease, becoming the tenant
  • Military Transitions – The risks, uncertainty, and opportunity when servicemen and women exit the armed forces and prepare for careers in the private sector
  • Work/Life balance - Remote work pre/post-COVID, managing a family, and using the exceptional flexibility of real estate to balance personal and professional goals
  • Rich Dad Poor Dad – identifying how much of your earning is tied to your time, and taking steps to separate the two. Being a pilot is a prime example of a high-income career, but directly tied to time in a cockpit away from home.
