Columbus and Multifamily w/ Matthew Drane

If we know each other as real estate investors and I have not introduced you to Matthew Drane, I sincerely apologize. Matt is a great guest for Skyline Views (or for any podcast, for that matter) because he is a highly skilled and seasoned investor. He loves to share knowledge and ideas, and he does so in spades in this episode. Matt is a broker with Marcus & Millichap in Columbus, Ohio, and he’s one of the smartest multifamily real estate investors you could hope to meet. I’m excited to share this episode with you as we discuss Columbus, Ohio, multifamily apartment investing in 2020 vs 2021, and investing for your legacy.
