Behind The Bricks

A Business, Investing and News podcast
 1 person rated this podcast
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

Brad Hargreaves: Co-Living and Multifamily
Everyone in the commercial real estate industry has asked themselves how is technology going to hurt or help them? How will it change the business and its opportunities?  One way it’s changing is through “co-living.”  The co-living concept is at the intersection of technology, evolving cultural norms, economic pressures, and possibly the beginning of a new category in the business.    Today we sit down with Brad Hargreaves, the CEO and founder of Common.   Common is the premier operator in the co-living space that has opened 27 co-living properties in 6 cities.  Brad is a serial entrepreneur who, notably before Common, was a co-founder of “General Assembly,” a worldwide education platform that addressed the skills gap needed for success in the 21st century. Brad has great advice for entrepreneurs, developing creativity, and his unique way of thinking will provide insights into the future of our industry....Enjoy this fascinating show!!   For more information visit:
