Due-diligence, asset analysis, risk management, identifying opportunity, deal-flow, and transaction process are a few of the mentioned areas of topic. 

We interview industry experts and share our knowledge on how to invest in and manage your own operation.  On the podcasts, we reference specific consultants, managers, brokers, appraisers, tools and resources.
