[2:50] You can’t take $2,000 from someone and really invest or place that capital meaningfully.

[9:00] People are going to real estate fund managers who have no experienced and are losing their money.

[19:45] Real estate crowd funding deals are tricky, because now the developer is dealing with less experienced investors.

[27:20] You can’t make accurate predictions in an era where government and central banks intervene.

[35:50] People want more control over their investments and rather invest in someone who they have a good relationship with.
