Today, we’re joined by Jeremy Goodrich, owner of Shine Insurance Agency. Jeremy believes that success in real estate requires solid risk management strategies. He specializes in helping investors and asset managers increase their profit by mitigating risk. Jeremy got into the insurance business because he wanted to change the way people felt about the industry. He started by teaching first-time homeowners how to buy a house and then eventually moved into commercial real estate. He now focuses on helping apartment investors understand and manage the four quadrants of risk: physical, relationships, external, and systems. Insurance is a tool that allows people to invest in commercial real estate who may not have the capital to do so otherwise.
“I’ve always believed in just continuing to help teach people how to grow in this world.”
