I think it's incredibly imporant for entrepreneurs & business owners to act as stewards of their community. I also think it's important for Real Estate Investors, especially those who are looking to invest remotely in cities they are unfamiliar with or have no ties to, to make sure they are investing with companies that have strong ties to the community. I see many make the mistake of trying to utilize fly by night companies or those who just offer the lowest price. That is, in my opinion incredibly short sighted. Real Estate Investing is a Looong term investment. Those who look at the long term business plan & invest with companies who have the infrastructure in place to support the long term plan will have a more successful career.
