Special Encore: Transportation - Untangling the Supply Chain

Thoughts on the Market

Original Release on April 26th, 2022: Global supply chains have been under stress from the pandemic, geopolitical tensions, and inflation, and the outlook for transportation in 2022 is a mixed bag so far. Chief U.S. Economist Ellen Zentner and Equity Analyst for North American Transportation Ravi Shanker discuss.-----Transcript-----Ellen Zentner: Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Ellen Zentner, Chief U.S. Economist for Morgan Stanley Research, Ravi Shanker: and I'm Ravi Shanker, Equity Analyst covering the North American Transportation Industry for Morgan Stanley Research. Ellen Zentner: And today on the podcast, we'll be talking about transportation, specifically the challenges facing freight in light of still tangled supply chains and geopolitics. It's Tuesday, April 26, at 9:00 a.m. in New York. Ellen Zentner: So, Ravi, it's really good to have you back on the show. Back in October of last year we had a great discussion about clogged supply chains and the cascading problems stemming from that. And I hoped that we would have a completely different conversation today, but let's try to pick up where we left off. Could we maybe start today by you giving us an update on where we are in terms of shipping - ocean, ground and air? Ravi Shanker: So yes, things have materially changed since the last time we spoke, some for the better and some for the worse. The good news is that a lot of the congestion that we saw back then, whether it was ocean or air, a lot of that has eased or abated. We used to have, at a peak, about 110 ships off the Port of L.A. Long Beach, that's now down to about 30 to 40. The other thing that has changed is we just went from new peak to new all time peak on every freight transportation data point that we were tracking over the last two years. Now all of those rates are collapsing at a pace that we have not seen, probably ever. It's still unclear whether this legitimately marks the end of the freight transportation cycle or if it's just an air pocket that's related to the Russia Ukraine conflict or China lockdowns or something else. But yes, the freight transportation worlds in a very different place today, compared to the last time I was on in October. Ellen, I know you wanted to dig a little more deeply into the current challenges facing the shipping and overall transportation industry. But before we get to that, can you maybe help us catch up on how the complicated tangle created by supply chain disruptions has affected some of the key economic metrics that you've been watching over the last six months? That is between the time we last spoke in October and now. Ellen Zentner: Sure. So, we created this global supply chain index to try to gauge globally just how clogged supply chains are. And we did that because, what we've uncovered is that it's a good leading indicator for inflation in the U.S. and on the back of creating that index, we could see that the fourth quarter of last year was really the peak tightness in global supply chains, and it has about a six month lead to CPI. Since then, we started to see some areas of goods prices come down. But unfortunately, that supply chain index stalled in February largely on the back of Russia, Ukraine and on the back of China's zero COVID policy, starting to disrupt supply chains again. So the improvement has stalled. There are some encouraging parts of inflation coming down, but it's not yet broad based enough, and we're certainly watching these geopolitical risks closely. So, Ravi, I want to come back to freight here because you talked about how it's been underperforming for a couple of months now and forward expectations have consistently declined as well. You pointed to it as possibly being just an air pocket, but you're pointing, you're watching closely a number of things and anticipate some turbulence in the second half of the year. Can you walk us through all of that? Ravi Shanker: What I can tell you is that it's probably a little too soon to definitively tell if this is just an air pocket or if the cycles over. Again, we are not surprised, and we would not be surprised if the cycle is indeed over because in December of last year, we downgraded the freight transportation sector to cautious because we did start to see some of those data points you just cited with some of the other analysts. So we were expecting the cycle to end in the middle of 22 to begin with, but to see the pace and the slope of the decline and a lot of these data points in the month of March, and how that coincides with the Russia-Ukraine conflict and that the lockdowns in China, I think, is a little too much of a coincidence. So we think it could well be a situation where this is an air pocket and there's like one or two innings left in the cycle. But either way, we do think that the cycle does end in the back half of the year and then we'll see what happens beyond that. Ellen Zentner: OK, so you're less inclined to say that you see it spilling over into 2023 or 2024? Ravi Shanker: I would think so. Like if this is just a normal freight transportation cycle that typically lasts about 9 to 12 months. The interesting thing is that we have seen 9 to 12 months of decline in the last 4 weeks. So there are some investors in my space who think that the downturn is over and we're actually going to start improving from here. I think that's way too optimistic. But if we do see this continuing into 2023 and 2024 I think there's probably a broader macro consumer problem in the U.S. and it's not just a freight transportation inventory destocking type situation. Ellen Zentner: So Ravi, I was hoping that you'd give me a more definitive answer that transportation costs have peaked and will be coming down because of course, it's adding to the broad inflationary pressures that we have in the economy. Companies have been passing on those higher input costs and we've been very focused on the low end consumer here, who have been disproportionately burdened by higher food, by higher energy, by all of these pass through inflation that we're seeing from these higher input costs. Ravi Shanker: I do think that rates in the back half of the year are going to be lower than in the first half of the year and lower than 2021. Now it may not go down in a straight line from here, and there may be another little bit of a peak before it goes down again. But if we are right and there is a freight transportation downturn in the back of the year, rates will be lower. But, and this is a very important but, this is not being driven by supply. It's being driven by demand and its demand that is coming down, right. So if rates are lower in the back half of the year and going into 23, that means at best you are seeing inventory destocking and at worst, a broad consumer recession. So relief on inflation by itself may not be an incredible tailwind, if you are seeing demand destruction that's actually driving that inflation relief. Ellen Zentner: That's a fair point. Another topic I wanted to bring up is the fact that while freight transportation continues to face significant headwinds, airlines seem to be returning to normal levels, with domestic and international travel picking up post-pandemic. Can you talk about this pretty stark disparity? Ravi Shanker: Ellen it's absolutely a stark disparity. It's basically a reversal of the trends that you've seen over the last 2 years where freight transportation, I guess inadvertently, became one of the biggest winners during the pandemic with all the restocking we were seeing and the shift of consumer spend away from services into goods. Now we are seeing the reversion of that. So look, honestly, we were a little bit concerned a month ago with, you know, jet fuel going up as much as it did and with potential concerns around the consumer. But the message we've got from the airlines and what we are seeing very clearly in the data, what they're seeing in the numbers is that demand is unprecedented. Their ability to price for it is unprecedented. And because there are unprecedented constraints in their ability to grow capacity in the form of pilot shortages, obviously very high jet fuel prices and other constraints, I guess there's going to be more of an imbalance between demand and supply for the foreseeable future. As long as the U.S. consumer holds up, we think there's a lot more to come here. So Ellen, let me turn back to you and ask you with freight still facing such big challenges and pressure on both sides on the supply chain. What does that bode for the economy in terms of inflation and GDP growth for the rest of this year and going into next year? Ellen Zentner: So I think because, as I said, you know, our global supply chain index has stalled since February. I think that does mean that even though we've raised our inflation forecasts higher, we can still see upside risk to those inflation forecasts. The Fed is watching that as well because they are singularly focused on inflation. GDP is quite healthy. We have a net neutral trade balance on energy. So it actually limits the impact on GDP, but has a much greater uplift on inflation. So you're going to have the Fed feeling very confident here to raise rates more aggressively. I think there's strong consensus on the committee that they want to frontload rate hikes because they do need to slow demands to slow the economy. They do almost need that demand destruction that you were talking about. That's actually something the Fed would like to achieve in order to take pressure off of inflation in the U.S.. But we think that the economy is strong enough, and especially the labor market is strong enough, to withstand this kind of policy tightening. It takes actually 4 to 6 quarters for the Fed to create enough slack in the economy to start to bring inflation down more meaningfully. But we're still looking for it to come in, for core inflation, around 2.5% by the fourth quarter of next year. So, Ravi, thanks so much for taking the time to talk. There's much more to cover, and I definitely look forward to having you back on the show in the future. Ravi Shanker: Great speaking with you Ellen. Thanks so much for having me and I would love to be back. Thanks for listening.

Transportation: Untangling the Supply Chain

Global supply chains have been under stress from the pandemic, geopolitical tensions, and inflation, and the outlook for transportation in 2022 is a mixed bag so far. Chief U.S. Economist Ellen Zentner and Equity Analyst for North American Transportation Ravi Shanker discuss.-----Transcript-----Ellen Zentner: Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Ellen Zentner, Chief U.S. Economist for Morgan Stanley Research, Ravi Shanker: and I'm Ravi Shanker, Equity Analyst covering the North American Transportation Industry for Morgan Stanley Research. Ellen Zentner: And today on the podcast, we'll be talking about transportation, specifically the challenges facing freight in light of still tangled supply chains and geopolitics. It's Tuesday, April 26, at 9:00 a.m. in New York. Ellen Zentner: So, Ravi, it's really good to have you back on the show. Back in October of last year we had a great discussion about clogged supply chains and the cascading problems stemming from that. And I hoped that we would have a completely different conversation today, but let's try to pick up where we left off. Could we maybe start today by you giving us an update on where we are in terms of shipping - ocean, ground and air? Ravi Shanker: So yes, things have materially changed since the last time we spoke, some for the better and some for the worse. The good news is that a lot of the congestion that we saw back then, whether it was ocean or air, a lot of that has eased or abated. We used to have, at a peak, about 110 ships off the Port of L.A. Long Beach, that's now down to about 30 to 40. The other thing that has changed is we just went from new peak to new all time peak on every freight transportation data point that we were tracking over the last two years. Now all of those rates are collapsing at a pace that we have not seen, probably ever. It's still unclear whether this legitimately marks the end of the freight transportation cycle or if it's just an air pocket that's related to the Russia Ukraine conflict or China lockdowns or something else. But yes, the freight transportation worlds in a very different place today, compared to the last time I was on in October. Ellen, I know you wanted to dig a little more deeply into the current challenges facing the shipping and overall transportation industry. But before we get to that, can you maybe help us catch up on how the complicated tangle created by supply chain disruptions has affected some of the key economic metrics that you've been watching over the last six months? That is between the time we last spoke in October and now. Ellen Zentner: Sure. So, we created this global supply chain index to try to gauge globally just how clogged supply chains are. And we did that because, what we've uncovered is that it's a good leading indicator for inflation in the U.S. and on the back of creating that index, we could see that the fourth quarter of last year was really the peak tightness in global supply chains, and it has about a six month lead to CPI. Since then, we started to see some areas of goods prices come down. But unfortunately, that supply chain index stalled in February largely on the back of Russia, Ukraine and on the back of China's zero COVID policy, starting to disrupt supply chains again. So the improvement has stalled. There are some encouraging parts of inflation coming down, but it's not yet broad based enough, and we're certainly watching these geopolitical risks closely. So, Ravi, I want to come back to freight here because you talked about how it's been underperforming for a couple of months now and forward expectations have consistently declined as well. You pointed to it as possibly being just an air pocket, but you're pointing, you're watching closely a number of things and anticipate some turbulence in the second half of the year. Can you walk us through all of that? Ravi Shanker: What I can tell you is that it's probably a little too soon to definitively tell if this is just an air pocket or if the cycles over. Again, we are not surprised, and we would not be surprised if the cycle is indeed over because in December of last year, we downgraded the freight transportation sector to cautious because we did start to see some of those data points you just cited with some of the other analysts. So we were expecting the cycle to end in the middle of 22 to begin with, but to see the pace and the slope of the decline and a lot of these data points in the month of March, and how that coincides with the Russia-Ukraine conflict and that the lockdowns in China, I think, is a little too much of a coincidence. So we think it could well be a situation where this is an air pocket and there's like one or two innings left in the cycle. But either way, we do think that the cycle does end in the back half of the year and then we'll see what happens beyond that. Ellen Zentner: OK, so you're less inclined to say that you see it spilling over into 2023 or 2024? Ravi Shanker: I would think so. Like if this is just a normal freight transportation cycle that typically lasts about 9 to 12 months. The interesting thing is that we have seen 9 to 12 months of decline in the last 4 weeks. So there are some investors in my space who think that the downturn is over and we're actually going to start improving from here. I think that's way too optimistic. But if we do see this continuing into 2023 and 2024 I think there's probably a broader macro consumer problem in the U.S. and it's not just a freight transportation inventory destocking type situation. Ellen Zentner: So Ravi, I was hoping that you'd give me a more definitive answer that transportation costs have peaked and will be coming down because of course, it's adding to the broad inflationary pressures that we have in the economy. Companies have been passing on those higher input costs and we've been very focused on the low end consumer here, who have been disproportionately burdened by higher food, by higher energy, by all of these pass through inflation that we're seeing from these higher input costs. Ravi Shanker: I do think that rates in the back half of the year are going to be lower than in the first half of the year and lower than 2021. Now it may not go down in a straight line from here, and there may be another little bit of a peak before it goes down again. But if we are right and there is a freight transportation downturn in the back of the year, rates will be lower. But, and this is a very important but, this is not being driven by supply. It's being driven by demand and its demand that is coming down, right. So if rates are lower in the back half of the year and going into 23, that means at best you are seeing inventory destocking and at worst, a broad consumer recession. So relief on inflation by itself may not be an incredible tailwind, if you are seeing demand destruction that's actually driving that inflation relief. Ellen Zentner: That's a fair point. Another topic I wanted to bring up is the fact that while freight transportation continues to face significant headwinds, airlines seem to be returning to normal levels, with domestic and international travel picking up post-pandemic. Can you talk about this pretty stark disparity? Ravi Shanker: Ellen it's absolutely a stark disparity. It's basically a reversal of the trends that you've seen over the last 2 years where freight transportation, I guess inadvertently, became one of the biggest winners during the pandemic with all the restocking we were seeing and the shift of consumer spend away from services into goods. Now we are seeing the reversion of that. So look, honestly, we were a little bit concerned a month ago with, you know, jet fuel going up as much as it did and with potential concerns around the consumer. But the message we've got from the airlines and what we are seeing very clearly in the data, what they're seeing in the numbers is that demand is unprecedented. Their ability to price for it is unprecedented. And because there are unprecedented constraints in their ability to grow capacity in the form of pilot shortages, obviously very high jet fuel prices and other constraints, I guess there's going to be more of an imbalance between demand and supply for the foreseeable future. As long as the U.S. consumer holds up, we think there's a lot more to come here. So Ellen, let me turn back to you and ask you with freight still facing such big challenges and pressure on both sides on the supply chain. What does that bode for the economy in terms of inflation and GDP growth for the rest of this year and going into next year? Ellen Zentner: So I think because, as I said, you know, our global supply chain index has stalled since February. I think that does mean that even though we've raised our inflation forecasts higher, we can still see upside risk to those inflation forecasts. The Fed is watching that as well because they are singularly focused on inflation. GDP is quite healthy. We have a net neutral trade balance on energy. So it actually limits the impact on GDP, but has a much greater uplift on inflation. So you're going to have the Fed feeling very confident here to raise rates more aggressively. I think there's strong consensus on the committee that they want to frontload rate hikes because they do need to slow demands to slow the economy. They do almost need that demand destruction that you were talking about. That's actually something the Fed would like to achieve in order to take pressure off of inflation in the U.S.. But we think that the economy is strong enough, and especially the labor market is strong enough, to withstand this kind of policy tightening. It takes actually 4 to 6 quarters for the Fed to create enough slack in the economy to start to bring inflation down more meaningfully. But we're still looking for it to come in, for core inflation, around 2.5% by the fourth quarter of next year. So, Ravi, thanks so much for taking the time to talk. There's much more to cover, and I definitely look forward to having you back on the show in the future. Ravi Shanker: Great speaking with you Ellen. Thanks so much for having me and I would love to be back. Ellen Zentner: And thanks for listening.

Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big.      Sam Wilson  00:47 Neil Bertrand is a 25-year multifamily veteran with experience across all asset classes and types. Neil, welcome to the show.   Neil Bertrand  00:55 Hey, thanks for having me.   Sam Wilson  00:57 Pleasure is mine. Same question I asked every guest who comes on the show, in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there?   Neil Bertrand  00:55 I started in the mid 90s. My wife got me in the business. And I had... I gravitated toward the financial side, started with the property management side, was naturally numbers-oriented. And it served me well.   Sam Wilson  01:17 And where are you now?   Neil Bertrand  01:19 So I'm with RGX invest, Executive Vice President and Partner in our assets. Ravi Katta is our CEO. We're an Austin-based institutional-style, vertically integrated investment firm.    Sam Wilson  01:30 And then how did you get there?   Neil Bertrand  01:32 Ravi and I actually met two and a half years ago, and we were both asked to participate in something called the Texas Multifamily Executive Forum. I joke that it's a group of owners, investors, C-suite guys, you know, a couple of private equity guys, and we meet every other Friday by Zoom. Half of the call is us griping about how everything is overpriced, and we can't find good deals. And the other half of the call is, you know, where do we go to find good deals. So during the course of those calls about the first year or so of it, Ravi and I realized that we had a lot of the same ideology, same mentality, both long term, very ambitious guys with kind of desire to help other people, learn what we do, impact their lives and grow. February of last year, we made it official, teamed up. And within 45 days, we had $1.4 billion of new development under contract. Man, you know, the rest, as they say, is history.   Sam Wilson  02:27 That's, you know, nobody just wakes up one day, you know, says hey, we're gonna form a partnership and then a month and a half later, you know, inks a $1.4 billion new development deal north of Austin, Texas. There's a lot of things that have gone into that I'm sure that you're downplaying. But let's talk about that project. I guess out of the, you know, break down that project for us. Why do you guys see the opportunity to be developing now versus where you see we are in the market? I think we were talking about, you know, here before we kicked off the episode that you kind of see it as a party that you know, people think never gonna end.    Neil Bertrand  03:06Right, right. The analogy I use was a bunch of 18-year-old rockstar wannabes playing the clubs every weekend, thinking that the party is never going to end, right.   Sam Wilson  03:07Right, right. Neil Bertrand  03:08When you look at the cities we're developing in, Leander Cedar Park and Lago Vista. Lago Vista: 76% plus population growth since the year 2000. Median income for the entire cities pushes $90,000,. Cedar Park: 205% population growth since the year 2000. Again, six digit, you know, median incomes in the sub market. Leander Springs: fastest growing city in America, 761% population growth since the year 2000. City-wide median income is six digits. The opportunity was great, we were able to purchase the land for all these deals pretty much off market. The Leander Springs project was actually a development that was already in play and we purchased out the guys that had put it together. But you know when you look at what we can build these deals for in cities that have five and eight year projected growth, I mean, 2019-2020, 4% population growth alone for Leander, okay. And when you look at where a lot of the growth is situated in Texas, you know, Dallas and Austin are really getting, reaping the benefits of that, and Houston and San Antonio are doing very well. But to kind of answer your original question, why develop now instead of buy? We're developing for much, much less than I can purchase a 2015 asset for in this market. And I'm talking in comparable locations, right? Half million dollar homes, six figure incomes. It just makes more sense right now to build. By the time, you know, you're looking at a 2015 asset, relatively brand-new construction right. But guess what? Your appliances and are nearing the end of their life expectancy for an apartment community. Depending on where you've built, you're probably starting to see some of those nice foundation issues that certain areas of Texas are known for. Your deferred maintenance is starting to creep in, right.?    Sam Wilson  05:10 Right.   Neil Bertrand  05:11 Do I buy for, you know, 330 a door? 2015 asset? Or do I build for 225 to 30 a door? It's a no brainer.   Sam Wilson  05:18 Sure. Yeah. I mean, just from a mathematical equation, it's a no brainer. What about time to bring product to market? I mean, a $1.4 billion project isn't a six month project.   Neil Bertrand  05:29 No, no. So we, Leander Springs will be a six year project and kind of what this project is. It's 78 acres, it's going to consist of three apartment communities totaling 1600 units, over 1 million square foot of office and retail, a 250 room hotel with a 20,000 square foot conference center. And all of that will be centered by a four acre crystal lagoon. And this will be the only publicly accessible four acre crystal lagoon in Central Texas. So we're basically building the ultimate live-work-play environment, right. And that's going to be built in probably four phases. Phase one is going to be the lagoon, the first apartment community with the retail, get the utilities stretched out there, take about 18 to 24 months from the first shovel in the ground to full lease-up, right? With the way that the markets are growing, and the population growth, and the fact that we're building such a unique product, you know, we're anticipating a very easy lease-up. If you take a look at the national average right now, similar class lease-ups are hitting about 50 to 70 units a month in high demand areas. So I'm always cautiously optimistic. But on this one, I'm just optimistic.   Sam Wilson  06:42 I like that. How are you guys funding this? I know you have a big background in the institutional space. So maybe this was just a hey, tee up the right partners, and then off you go. And we all get together and do it. But talk to us about that.   Neil Bertrand  06:56 So a year ago, Ravi and I started a fund. And it was basically a friends and family fund, but only for accredited investors, $30 million fund. And we basically have used that money to purchase the land for these acquisitions. So we're stable there. And yes, as we build project by project, we are engaging private equity groups and family offices, you know, from around the country and a few international groups as well.   Sam Wilson  07:23 Right. And so you've already kind of got this pipeline warmed up. This is the project, this is what we're doing. This is the expected capital. You know, it's not committed capital, hard capital yet, but it's people that have kind of given the preliminary nod that says, when it's time, yes, we want to participate.   Neil Bertrand  07:37 Right. And I'll be honest with you, this is the only project and I became a VP of acquisitions summer, sometime around 2015-2016. This is the only project where I have the private equity groups contacting me or contacting Ravi, like, hey, you guys, you guys ready? You guys gotta pay the numbers? Because, you know, the city of Leander is offering us a, you know, incredible tax incentive. Obviously, they see the benefit to this type of project. You've got tech companies moving in, hey, you have your office, you're living, you're shopping everything right here. You know, what else do you need?   Sam Wilson  08:10 Right. Yeah, absolutely. When you have investors calling you saying, hey, you ready? You ready for my capital? Yet? That's a great place to be. Let's talk about the market for a second, if there's a shift in the market, or if there's a shift in as you said, you know, when the 18-year-old rock band grew, you know, when the music stops, is there any fear that not committed capital won't be there when it's time?   Neil Bertrand  08:33 No, because the new development space right now is probably one of the safer areas to invest in because the returns are simply better, right? You're not going to get 20-25% IRR on an 80s value-add deal, right? You may get 18 at best, you're certainly not going to get it on anything built between 2015-2020, right? Again, you'll probably get 18 at best, unless you can come across a unicorn where the developer didn't care about the expenses. He just wanted to build the thing and sell it as soon as it was stabilized, and you can trim a lot of fat. So it's still going to be the safest bet. For a lot of that capital.   Sam Wilson  09:12 Yeah, no, I think that's really smart. And especially, you know, everybody always says that real estate is local, right? There's no such thing as the national real estate market. And we saw that even in 2008, that while, yes, maybe there was a lot of pain across the country. There were still markets that did really well. Some of those, I think, were actually in Texas. So you know, like you mentioned before, just following the population growth, I mean, that's astounding population growth. So not seeing that kind of wane as well, I think is really intriguing, and also not "motivating," what's the word I'm looking for here, but further reason to keep doing what you're doing. Tell me about the buildout side of things. I mean, that's a lot of projects and a lot of moving parts and people to manage. How have you guys built a team around you? I know it was just the two of you, I guess, not too terribly long ago. You need a lot of support staff to make this thing go round.  Neil Bertrand  10:00Right. So if you're familiar with The Domain project in Austin, once again, very large, nationally-recognized live-work-play development, we've engaged the big players who are involved in that project: architects, project managers, developers, engineers, I mean, literally the same, just probably about 80-70, 80% of that Domain team, we've engaged for this project, because when you're doing something like this, you want the best of the best, you don't want the guys who started an engineering firm last year, right? Or who read an engineering book and think they can do it, you know. We want the big names, the big guns. Sam Wilson  10:35Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, you know, to go out and find talent that's already done it. What are some risks that you feel like in this development project or in development as a whole, that you guys kind of see, you say, hey, these are some risks that either we can or cannot compensate for? Neil Bertrand  10:51 I think right now, it's going to be supply chain, and pricing, right? Obviously, we're keeping an eye on that, lumber kind of fluctuating up and down, up and down,  labor shortages. Those are the type of things that can impact our numbers. But again, when you're working with these large groups that have a huge network and can command great pricing, you have a buffer, right? You don't have 100% guarantee, but you have a very good buffer.  Sam Wilson  11:18Yeah, I would imagine that's absolutely true. One of things we talked about was that one of the things you'd love to do is to inspire others to grow and lead an impactful life. What does that mean?  Neil Bertrand  11:31So there are a lot of people who, Ravi, of course, being Indian, I think, you know, the Indian community, lots of tech entrepreneurs, medical community, and then just even outside of the Indian community, a lot of people, great entrepreneurs, I mean, I was talking to a guy who was the VP of cybersecurity, all in, you know, pulling down 600,000 a year, but this much time to learn about real estate, right? The same thing with tech entrepreneurs, IT guys, doctors, no time to really, really learn. And when you take a look at what is out there, and I'm not disparaging any of the groups, but let's just be perfectly honest. The business of a mentor group is attracting and retaining students. That's first and foremost. Okay. Second is teaching you about real estate. So that's their primary concern. How do I attract and retain students? We're not gurus, we're not mentors, we don't want to be. You know, I make the comment, if I'm the smartest guy in the room that I need to find a new room. And even after 25 years, I still think that. I don't want to be the smartest guy in the room. So we want to help people to come alongside us, give them an opportunity, you know, they're aspiring GPs give them an opportunity to invest with us. You don't pay us, you invest with us. And you work side by side. You shadow us, you learn everything, you learn how to underwrite on a model that has been sent to Blackstone, and AllianceBernstein, and Prudential, and Northwestern Mutual Life, okay? It's not on a four tab underwriting model that is going to spit out the most erroneous returns you can imagine. And if I say that with a bit of sarcasm and loathing, it's there, because that hurts people. Right? What you don't know will hurt you.   Sam Wilson  13:14That is awesome. I love that. What does that mean practically? I mean, because there's only so many hours in your day. And there has to be some sort of return on investment for you guys, when you bring on these, I'm gonna call it mentees, even though it's not right... You don't do a mentor program.   Neil Bertrand  13:31Yeah. So for us, one is being very selective, right? You're not paying us to be coaches. So we're not doing this for everybody. We want people who, you know, first we want to understand your why and your why needs to be two things. My why is simple, I have to be somewhere after this call. If I don't make it there, my family is taken care of, okay? The second thing is, what do you want to do outside of yourself? Okay, it's great to have, you know, 10-15, $20 million net worth and pull down big money, but what are you doing to help other people, right? And so we want to bring in like-minded people, a very select group, and just kind of put them through a six month program, where they're analyzing deals, and we're explaining to them why things work, why things don't work, you know. In terms of time, if something was worth that you make the time, right, and that's what we want from the people that we will bring in as these Co-GP. I hate to use the word trainee, because it just doesn't sound right. You know, come stand shoulder to shoulder with us, I learn how to do things, and I hate... I'm going to use this phrase and I don't care who gets offended, learn how to do things the correct way.   Sam Wilson  14:37I love it. And that's so absolutely necessary. And I think that's very valuable what you are doing because, and I say this in the show all the time, unapologetically, that if you are going to hire a mentor, then... And I know you're not a mentor in the traditional sense, but if you are gonna go that route, you've got to find somebody that is active in the space, that is buying and is doing it. Run from the guru, what I call the "guru but no do" person. It's like the real estate industry is fraught with that, it is I'm with you. It just kind of soured my stomach like, oh my god.   Neil Bertrand  15:10I make sure I say this on every interview or podcast, you know. I say this, before you give your money to somebody, I want you to think about something. Before you give your money to a guru, or a syndicator, or a deal sponsor, heck, before you give your money to an institutional investor, in the state of Texas, there was more education, licensing and recertification required to cut hair than there is to raise money for $20 million asset.  Sam Wilson  15:36I know it. Neil Bertrand  15:36And that is a sad, sad fact, right? You know, the best thing about real estate, anybody can do it. The worst thing about real estate is, anybody can do it. And you know, when you have enough people stomping around and puffing their chest like they're experts, and they have great marketing prowess, people buy, you know, they drink the Kool Aid. Sam Wilson  15:55Yeah. And people get hurt as well. I mean, that's in the end, there's a lot of activity and very little forward momentum. And I think that's one of the things maybe you're trying to solve there, is actually putting people in a position to make meaningful progress. Neil Bertrand  16:08Yeah.  Sam Wilson  16:08I think that's absolutely cool. And I love the idea there of growing and leading an impactful life. So thanks for taking the time to break that down. Neil, appreciate having you come on the show. This has been great. I love the projects you guys are taking down. That's, what do they call that, massive action in a very short period of time? So I look forward to seeing this project. What's the name of the project you guys are developing there again? Neil Bertrand  16:29The large project is Leander Springs. Sam Wilson  16:31Leander Springs, okay, I have to keep my eye on that as it progresses over the next few years. But absolutely love how quickly and how precisely you guys are going after stuff like that. So yeah, look forward to following that. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you what is the best way to do that? Neil Bertrand  16:48Sure. You can send me an email neil, N-E-I-L, @ reitgroupx.com. R-E-I-T groupx.com. Sam Wilson  16:55Neil, thanks for your time. Appreciate it. Neil Bertrand  16:57Thank you.
