Behind The Bricks is a podcast about New York City Multifamily Real Estate Investing. Specifically, I’ll interview and have discussions with the most active and fascinating NYC apartment building owners in the industry. The goal of these talks is to go behind the transactions and explore what drives these individuals and the investment choices they make. How do they balance opportunity with the obstacles and the risk with the rewards? Some shows are biographical, some are about management operations, and others will have a macro focus to uncover the philosophies and mindsets of these real estate icons. In essence, I am looking to uncover the skills, qualities, and experiences that have made them successful. Success is no accident and we all have something to learn from these achievers. In doing so, we can improve ourselves and the world around us. For more information about the show or investing in New York City, visit us at www.behindthebricks.com. Peter Von Der Ahe leads the top multifamily investment sales team in the NYC metro area. For more information about them and related opportunities, go to www.newyorkmultifamily.com.
