This episode features Bud Strang, the CEO of Six-Ten,LLC. Six/Ten develops, leases and manages a diverse portfolio of commercial real estate properties and operating companies across Central Florida, but their true passion is for downtown Winter Haven, where they and others are working to drive smart growth by re-purposing wonderful old building for lease and producing smart in-fill projects that create new urban spaces.
In this episode, John and Bud discuss how Bud and his team have slowly created a work, play and live destination in downtown Winter-Haven. Six/Ten has developed a very interesting funding model which they believe could be a future model for other communities. Tune in, and learn how a small group of investors scaled into a larger group of local investors for the purpose of transforming their downtown. Listeners will gain some practical knowledge and wisdom around the topics of real estate investing, tenant recruiting and retention, and leadership.
