Putting Yourself In The Right Real Estate Investor Mindset With Tyler Chesser

I have another amazing guest on the show. His name is Tyler Chesser, he is a CCIM. He is the Founder and President of The Chesser Companies, a commercial real estate firm that focuses on real estate investing, brokerage and coaching for real estate investors. He is an experienced multifamily real estate investor, both active and passive, and has experienced the successes and failures of building a real estate portfolio. Tyler is also the Cofounder of CF Capital LLC, a real estate syndication firm that focuses on acquiring and repositioning multifamily assets in the Southeast United States and provides institutional quality services to its residents and outsize returns to its investment partners. Thank you, Tyler, for coming on the show. I appreciate it.

Lisa, it’s a pleasure to be with you. Thank you for having me.

I met Tyler at the best ever conference that I went to in Denver. We were on the same shuttle going from the airport out to Keystone. I didn’t know him, but as I continue to go to a conference, I saw him at one of the days of the conference. We started a conversation and learned so much about him and I was like, “You’d be an amazing guest for my show.” He also has a show.

It was random. We were sitting on this shuttle up in the mountains and you mentioned something. You were trying to figure out where you were going. I was trying to figure out what I was going and then the next day it was like, “I saw you.”

To get started, can you share with my audience how you got started investing in real estate?

When I got started in investing, I stumbled into it because I started my career after college working in the corporate world. I was a W-2. I was a marketing specialist and then I started doing international marketing. I loved what I was doing, but I didn’t love the politics of the corporate environment. I started to get a little bit dissatisfied with that and started to try to figure out, “What else could I do?” Long story short, I decided to get my real estate license and started selling residential real estate on the side because it was an opportunity for me to earn more money. It could give me more options potentially as a pivot for my career. As I started selling residential properties, I learned fairly quickly that I didn’t want to sell residential properties, but I liked real estate. I was interested in it, so I started reading books. I started to invest in coaching, investing in conferences and seminars, and my own personal growth. I was obsessed with it because I started to realize that I needed to grow as an individual to be successful in real estate.

I become involved in the selling of the income-producing real estate. Like many of your audience, I read Rich Dad Poor Dad, and my mind was blown. I was like, “I don’t always have to trade my time for money. I can trade money for more money and more time and more resources and build wealth that way.” I started to invest in real estate and in smaller multifamily properties and graduated up here and there. Throughout the past few years, I became a passive investor in large indicators eating larger acquisitions of multifamily apartment complexes. That’s the condensed version of how I got into it. It was a stumbling process, but it’s worked out since.

What was your first property going into investing in real estate?

The first property I bought was an eight-unit multifamily property. Many people will get started on a single-family, a duplex or something in that size range. The reason why I was comfortable doing that is that as I was growing as a commercial agent, I was selling a lot of office properties, retail properties and a ton of multifamily. I became known as the apartment guy. I was selling a lot of apartments and I was selling a portfolio of about $30 million worth of multifamily properties scattered across the city. I learned the ins and outs of smaller multifamily and I felt comfortable with that size range and said, “This is where I want to start,” so I started with an eight-unit property.

There are a couple of things I want to dive into here. The first is you were working in marketing in Corporate America and then you got your real estate license. You went into selling residential on the side and you then went into a little bit more small commercial. When you were doing a small commercial, were you still working full-time?

I did the residential thing on the side for probably 6 to 9 months and then I ended up growing my business and expanding into the income-producing real estate world and doing commercial real estate. At that time, I had to decision because if I wanted to commit and go all in, it was going to require all of my efforts, all of my attention, and my focus at nights and weekends. There are people who are investing in commercial real estate, whether it’s a mom-and-pop investor or a full-time professional, sophisticated investor, but we’re talking about business hours. I had to make the decision to dive in and go full-time and take a little bit of a leap of faith into the commitment of my future in real estate.

For other people reading your story here and are thinking about, what were some of the telltale signs or the things that you considered before making that leap from doing this on a part-time basis to then doing it on a full-time basis?

To be clear, when I got into real estate, it was full-time into being an agent. I was an agent selling on behalf of other investors. I got a certain level of comfort in that and then I was building a business by referral. It continued to grow through each and every transaction that I did. I would build relationships with people who are doing more than one transaction. It started to open up doors for more businesses for me. I started to get a little bit of a comfort level and I get a little bit overwhelmed with my time because it was like, “I had a lot of demands in what I was doing in my main job in addition to what I was doing there.” I had built up a little bit of a reserve from a cash basis and from a practical basis that allowed me to say, “If the worst-case scenario occurs in 3 to 6 months, I don’t make anything. I can still survive here.” I felt good enough and saying, “The probability of that happening is fairly low,” so I was able to dive in. It was a couple of years after that process before I felt comfortable committing my own capital in investing in real estate. It was a unique process for me.

When you bought the eight-unit, did you do that solo or did you do it with JV partners?

LUR Tyler | Investor Mindset

Investor Mindset: There’s always another level. There’s always a way for you to grow, become, give, be, do, and see more. The question is, how much do you want it?


I did it solo. Looking back, I learned so much. I made tons of mistakes on that deal, but I wish I would have had a partner, especially in times of challenge, and being able to ask questions, strategize and navigate challenges. I had things that happened that were outside of my control as well as things that I made mistakes on, but I wish I had a partner. Not just from the capital standpoint, but from a strategic and a discussion standpoint more than anything but the first deal I did was by myself.

How do you play in real estate?

I do a lot of different things, but real estate syndication is an endeavor that we launched with CF Capital, my partner, Bryan Flaherty and myself. We launched this company and we acquired 100 to 250/300-unit multifamily apartment complexes in Kentucky. It is because we have a significant amount of influence in Kentucky, as well as access to relationships, resources, third parties and all those kinds of things. We planned to expand throughout the Southeast, but that’s exciting because I’ve always invested my own resources and advised clients on investing their resources. I worked with syndicators across the United States for the past several years, as well as a broker. I also own a commercial real estate brokerage company and continue to build up my own investment portfolio passively and actively.

I love real estate. My philosophy on real estate is that it can allow you to do anything you want in your life. That’s the reason why I love it is because it’s a vehicle towards creating your life. You mentioned that I have a podcast and that’s the philosophy behind it. It’s called Elevate. You can elevate to a life without limits if you commit to consistent and never-ending improvement in yourself, personal growth, in addition to developing a successful real estate portfolio. As a recap there, we do real estate syndication where we partner with high net worth and accredited investors on those acquisitions. We’re based in Louisville, Kentucky. We also do commercial real estate brokerage for multifamily owners, office owners, retail. as well as coaching for real estate investors. There are a lot of different things that we’re doing there, but it’s all centered around the fact that real estate can allow you to do anything you want through the practicality of cashflow and wealth creation.

Let’s break into some of these different pieces. The last bit that you talked about was about coaching. Your business provides coaching to real estate investors. Can you talk a little bit about how that looks like for a potential person who’s thinking about investing in real estate and the benefit of coaching?

There are five places that we look into. This is what I’ve developed as the five reasons why real estate investors fail to scale. The number one is limiting beliefs. The theory is if you think you can’t, then you can’t. You have to start there and you have to realize that your mind is the most fertile ground on the planet. What seeds are you planting in your mind? Are you guarding the gates of your mind? The seeds that are planting in most people’s minds are fear, worry, anxiety, and doubt due to the Coronavirus situation. The question is, how are you cultivating the appropriate mindset? Is it a belief system that Tony Robbins calls BS? Is it an empowering belief that allows you to take action, to take consistent, and inspired action towards your own inspiration, curiosity, courage, rather than being pushed by fear? That’s where we start.

It’s super important and that’s why I’m passionate about being a coach is because we’re humans. We all have limiting beliefs and we have to overcome those. We also have to work hard on cultivating the appropriate belief system. The number two reason why real estate investors fail to scale is because they have a lack of a strategic plan. Many investors plan their vacation more than they do the strategy of their real estate portfolio. There are many ways that we can do this, but we can dig down into developing the vision. What does it look like from a 50,000-foot view? How do we chunk that down into the next 3 to 5 years? How do we chunk that further down into what does the next year look like, month, quarter, week, day moment? That’s an important part that we’ve got to start with the limiting beliefs, but once we overcome that, we’ve got to start to develop, “What does the strategic process look like?”

If you think you can't, then you can't. You have to start there and realize that your mind is the most fertile ground on the planet. Click To Tweet

That’s what I worked with investors on a one-to-one basis is developing and getting clear on what you want and why you want it, and developing what comes next, which is a system for support. That’s number three, the reason why real estate investors typically fail to scale is because they have a lack of systems for support. A lot of times, when I got started in real estate, it was me and my phone. I was trying to figure it out as I went. There’s nothing wrong with that to a certain degree, but you’ve got to develop not only a team. You’ve got to develop perhaps technologies, some other tools and implement those into your business. It’s not just you running on, how do you feel that day, your personality, all these kinds of things? Does that resonate with you, Lisa?

That resonates for sure.

That’s an important piece. We work tremendously with our clients on developing those systems, that strategic plan, cultivating the appropriate mindset, and the belief system. From there, it’s all about time management. How do you spend your 168 hours in your week? I’ve got 168 hours. Lisa, you have 168 hours. Oprah Winfrey has 168 hours. Jeff Bezos has 168 hours. We have no excuse and the way that we spend our time is the way that our life starts to show up. Our business starts to become formed. We have to work through time management on a consistent basis. One of the ways that I help my clients gain a competitive edge is to start taking inventory of the way that they’re spending their time and allocate it more appropriately. Are you spending your time in low or no value times? Are you spending your time in higher lifetime value times? Perhaps high dollar value times or maybe it’s low dollar value times. There are certain things that we spend our time on that need to be done that could be outsourced or could be spent wiser or more effectively. It’s a process that we work on deeply with our clients.

The last and final thing is it’s all about accountability. With my clients, it’s all about holding their feet to the fire because when we start to dig into getting clear on what you want and why you want it, you get excited and inspired. In January of each year, I hear nothing more than everyone how excited and inspired they are for the goals that they have. When that roadblock comes, it’s like, “I didn’t want it that bad anyway.” The accountability piece is like, “Yes you do and I’m going to hold your feet to the fire. I’m going to make you get there. You’re going to be happy that I did this. It’s going to be uncomfortable, but it’s holding you accountable.” The path of least resistance always kicks in with me when someone else is not holding me accountable and I’m a driven individual. I’m willing to do whatever it takes, but sometimes, Netflix calls my name. It’s like, “I don’t know what to do.” It’s important. Those are the five key components in terms of how we work with clients and how I work directly with my clients on helping them scale their business.

Even your last point there about the drive and the fact that even the people who have all this drive, they still can use that support to level up and get to those next levels or elevate to the levels that they’re trying to get to in their career and their lives.

There’s always another level. I feel like I’ve done great things, but I have a lot farther to go. I’m proud of myself and I’m patting myself on the back but I want more. I think that there’s always another level for anyone. They may be getting started or they may have 25 years’ experience or even more. There’s always a way for you to grow and become more, to give more, to be more, do more, to see more, whatever you want to do. The question is, how much do you want it? Are you committed? Are you interested? I think a lot of times we say, “I’m interested in doing more, being more and having more,” but the people who get it are the ones who are committed and will do whatever it takes. I wanted to make that distinction because it’s important.

I’m tied to that. How did you find your path? You have a syndication business, a brokerage, and then you’re also a coach. I am of the philosophy that things don’t come out fully formed. There’s a journey and I’m curious about how you got to where you’re at with these businesses?

LUR Tyler | Investor Mindset

Investor Mindset: To be successful and impactful as a real estate investor, coach, or syndicator, you have to grow yourself deeply every single day.


I agree that it’s a journey. I’ve been following my nose. I’ve been following my curiosity. I read a book years ago called Curious by Ian Leslie. I highly recommend that book because it made me consciously aware of how deeply curious I am as a human being. Throughout the process of my growth in real estate, I learned that to be successful and to be impactful as a real estate investor, coach, or syndicator, I have to grow myself deeply every day. I have such a deep curiosity of learning something new. I read a book also called Sapiens. It doesn’t have anything to do with real estate, but I couldn’t put the thing down because I want to know. The gap, that once I learned something, I want to learn something more. I’m curious about human beings. The reason why I was in marketing before I got into real estate was because I was always curious about why humans make decisions that they do. Whether they’re a consumer or whatever it may be, but what drives behavior?

The reason why I love real estate is because you can create practicality in your life through cashflow, wealth, tax benefits, leverage, and all the things that you and I love. Many of these great things but then if you combine that with the appropriate psychology, systems, strategy, time management, and accountability systems, anything is possible through this. My journey has been unique in creating three different businesses within one, but it’s all driven by curiosity.

What advice would you give to people starting out on their real estate journey? If they’re reading it, they might be sitting in a cubicle or maybe they’re working from home and they’re thinking about investing in real estate and don’t necessarily know where to start.

At that point, you can almost feel like there are many different directions. There are many different things you can do first and my answer would be to find someone that you trust that can show you a little bit of the ropes. Find a mentor, whether it’s a pavement or not. Find someone who has some experience that’s doing something that you want to do. Follow your gut and your own curiosity because only you know exactly what you want to do. One thing that I would say many people that are interested in becoming a real estate investor is that there are many different directions that you can take this. When you say you’re a real estate investor, that is only scratching the surface of what the possibilities are. Are you a single-family home investor? Are you a multifamily investor? Are you a commercial real estate investor? The subcategories, are you a retail investor? Are you a self-storage or industrial investor? Whatever it may be. The reason why I’m asking these questions is because you need to get some clarity on what you want and why you want it. Different asset classes can give you different things.

There are different systems and vehicles towards creating that outcome in your life. You want to start to get a little bit more clarity on what is the outcome because real estate is a vehicle towards that outcome. I’d be starting to think, “What do I want my life to be set up in 3 to 5 years? What do I want my life vision to be? How can I back into that by creating these systems such as real estate? Maybe find somebody who’s got a little bit more experience than you do on doing that but listening to podcasts, reaching out to guests are a great way to start building those relationships, but the core of real estate is all about relationships. I would start there and build effective relationships with others who want to help you grow. They’re not looking for anything other than giving back. I know that there are many people who are willing to do that.

I also want to touch on the message you would give to someone who has already invested in real estate. It might be some of the same things that you stated but you might have some different things as well. This is someone who’s already invested. Maybe they are dealing with limiting beliefs about how they could take their condo portfolio of 1, 2 or 3 condos or 1, 2 or 3 single-family homes and move into a bigger portfolio. What advice you would give to them as they navigate trying to level up into bigger portfolios?

The first thing is to congratulate yourself for taking the steps to be where you are. Comparison bias is one of the worst things that we can do in our life, especially with technology and social media and all these things. Don’t get discouraged and look out and say, “I only have 1, 2 or 3 condos,” whatever it may be. You should be proud of your own progress. We all have a journey we’re on a different timeline. The first thing is don’t beat yourself up and congratulate yourself. Be grateful for what you have and from there, I would go back to the clarity, “Where do I want to go now? What’s the strategy for getting there?” I will start to identify, “I’m here now and maybe in 2 to 3 years, I want to be there. How can I break that down into daily steps, into by moment steps? What type of relationship do I need to gain along the way? What type of connections or circle do I need to create?” As far as the limiting beliefs, you’ve always got to be guarding the gates of your mind.

The way that we spend our time is the way that our life starts to show up and how our business starts to become formed. Click To Tweet

Spending a lot of time on social media as an example of something that I would not recommend because you start to feel like, “I’m not doing anything in comparison to all these other people.” Where our focus goes, energy flows because that’s what Tony Robbins says and I believe that. In my life, I’ve seen that. When I feel down and when I feel like I’m less than I should be, then I start to act that way. Start to have some awareness around the fact that even comparing yourself to others will potentially allow you to get into a state where you’re not going to take inspired action. It is important to realize that you should be grateful for where you are now and you should be inspired and excited about what’s next and follow your curiosity. Be curious. God’s delays are not God’s denials, that’s another great quote that I love too. Everybody’s time comes at the time that’s appropriate for them.

It would behoove me not to talk about the situation that we find ourselves in, which appears to be the beginning of a bear market. In other words, winter in the investing world. As you approach winter for yourself, what are some of the things that you’re thinking about you’re putting in place? What are some of the advice you’re giving to your investors and the people around you, as we get into the winter season potentially?

It’s interesting because we just got back from a conference where some smart economists were saying, “It looks like we might even have another 5 to 7 years of growth here.” All the factors of real estate are pointing towards that. I can see that from a logical perspective. Also, simultaneously, when this started to catch a little bit of fire in the United States. I’ve picked up The Black Swan by Nassim Taleb. I started to read that book and if you think about it, we’re dealing with the Black Swan. This is an event that no one could have predicted. The lesson is that you can always look at a model and say, “This is what happened in the past and this is what is likely to happen in the future based on that but we just don’t know what we don’t know.” Operate not with fear and paralysis, but being smart and saying, “In potential uncertain times, are we still comfortable holding this investment long-term, and what are our contingency plans?” I still feel comfortable about investing in multifamily real estate because of all these things. That’s not to say that it doesn’t come with any sort of risks or headaches to deal with.

For example, the tenants and the occupants in these properties, potentially it could be having some challenges in terms of paying their own rent and paying back what they owe and those kinds of things. At the end of the day, your success as a real estate investor depends on the success of your tenants. That’s something that we all have to look at and say, “How’s our financing look?” One of the biggest opportunities is to potentially either refinance or adjust your financing metrics on your properties. That’s one of the best ways that you can act. I was talking to somebody smarter than myself and he said, “It’s time to take a little bit of a ‘knee’ and let the time clock run and take a look at how does this all shakes out.” A lot of us don’t fully know yet, so let’s not panic too much, but let’s also be prepared and say, “How do we need to adapt in this situation?” The biggest thing is we can’t let this paralyze us, but what does this mean for us moving forward? What opportunities does this create? It could be creating opportunities at the same time. We have to be safe. We have to be smart and cautious from a human perspective and also thinking and giving our thoughts and prayers to those who are impacted by this because it seems to be no joke.

I am pivoting from that a little bit but somewhat connected, share with our audience, as you look back at your career and your journey to this point, what are some of the top lessons you have learned personally that you continue to take with you as you continue to invest and build your businesses going forward?

I’ve learned a lot of lessons. I’ve made a ton of mistakes. I continue to make mistakes. I probably made fifteen mistakes already. I know that mistakes are not fatal. That’s one thing. For the most part, it can be rectified, so don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Looking back earlier on into my career, I would feel a little bit I couldn’t afford to make any mistake. Certainly, you want to continue to improve. As what they say about the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You have to grow from those. That’s one of the things I’ve learned but also asking questions is something that I’ve also learned as super important. Showing humility and recognizing that you don’t have every answer. The first deal I ever invested in, I wasn’t willing to show others that I didn’t have any experience.

I didn’t ask the questions, but it’s interesting because the paradox is I feel like the more experience I’ve gotten, the more willing I am to show that I don’t know all the answers. I think humility is super important to continue to recognize. Even this example of what you asked about Coronavirus. We’ve got to always be humble. Over the years, we’ve had continued growth in real estate and in the economy year after year from the depths of 2008 and 2009. There are many people who get cocky, excited and get overzealous. They start to get a little bit reckless and forget to realize that sometimes what goes up must come down. It doesn’t mean that we should be running for the hills, but also be safe. Be humble in the good times and when the sun is shining, replaced the roof. Be prepared that at any moment, things can shift and when it shifts, don’t be scared. Don’t be worried, but adapt accordingly.

LUR Tyler | Investor Mindset

Investor Mindset: The great thing about real estate is that you don’t have to ”get married” to somebody. You can do one deal with them and find out whether or not it makes sense to do another deal.


Another key thing that I’d like for you to share about is building your businesses with partners. In the syndication business, you have a partner. As people are thinking about building businesses with other people, what are the words of advice that you would give to them as they think about embarking on that?

I’ve got multiple partners. One of which for the syndication business and another in the active portfolio. It’s interesting because my two different partners are vastly different. They’re both different people but the way that I would give someone advice on choosing a partner is don’t rush into it. Get to know them over a period of time. Get to know what their values are and who they are as a person. What is it that they’re looking to accomplish? How do they work and how do your skills overlap with theirs? Do you balance each other out in a good way? What’s your moral compass look like because you’re going to make decisions, whether you realize it or not, that impacts the moral fabric of both of you as a human being? What is your work ethic and what is your drive? What are you looking to accomplish from a big picture, from a small picture or whatever it maybe? Check to make sure that you align on all of those things, at least to a certain degree where you can both leverage each other to get to that place.

I have had good experience with partners. I’ve also had a partnership in the past that didn’t work out. It wasn’t a horrible experience, but after working together, we realized that we weren’t the best fit for each other. It is what it is. That was another thing that I learned through trying. The great thing about real estate is that you don’t have to “get married” to somebody. You can do one deal with them and you can find out whether or not it makes sense to do another deal. If you do 2, 3 and 4, and it’s like, “We’re doing a great job together. Let’s continue this. Let’s make this formal and let’s continue to go after more and more things.” That’s one of the beautiful things about real estate, but those would be a few of my suggestions.

At this point, I like to ask all my guests the following three questions or the level of questions. The first is, what are you grateful for in your life?

Fear cannot exist with gratitude. That is 100% true. I look around in my office here and I’ve got books everywhere. I’m grateful for books and the wisdom that different authors have put their life’s work into to give you the opportunity to distill that and to apply it to your life. Books have, without a doubt, been an absolute life changer for me. I’m super grateful for technology to be able to communicate with you across the country and with everyone else because we might be quarantined, but we still have the opportunity of making a difference throughout this process. I’m also grateful for the sunshine that’s coming in here. It’s a beautiful day.

This is not one of my questions, but given your answer, it’s spiked this one. Could you recommend maybe one book that you like for personal development and another one for real estate?

I’m going to go with The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg because emotions create your actions, actions create your habits, habits create your character, and character creates your life. If you can consciously create habits and consciously be aware of perhaps the habits that are not supporting, the growth of the human being that you want to be, that’s where it all comes down to. If you can dive in there and create your own habits, you can do anything you want in your life. That’s a great book, from a personal development standpoint. From a real estate standpoint, I’m also looking at Sam Zell’s autobiography, Am I Being Too Subtle? If you don’t know who Sam Zell is, he’s probably one of the most prominent real estate magnates of our modern times. He’s responsible for creating the real estate investment trust for what it is now. He’s one of the largest owners of multifamily, of office, even retail. He’s an amazing individual. I highly recommend that book. Learning from others smarter than yourself is where you want to be.

At the end of the day, your success as a real estate investor depends on the success of your tenants. Click To Tweet

My next question is what do you attribute your continuous growth and success to?

It’s interesting because it’s a tough question. Would it be my state, my physiology, what do I feel like, and how can I hack that? Every morning, as most human beings, you wake up and you’re like, “I have a lot going on. I don’t feel like facing this day,” but if I go and work out and if I move my body, I’m like, “I got this. I can do anything.” It’s this biology thing. I would say that’s one place to look. Another thing is surrounding myself with people who support me, who care about me, and also who inspire me to become more. I still invest in coaching myself and I will always continue to do that. I invest in paid masterminds. I invest in conferences, seminars, and training continuously. I invest my attention in reading, listening to podcasts, and having these cyber conversations. When I have these types of conversations, I learn more. As a coach, the teacher learns the most, sometimes. When I’m teaching, when I’m leading someone else and it contributes to my own growth as well, all of those factors contribute to my personal growth.

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

My last question is, what do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?

If I knew how important and how central relationships were in real estate early on, I would have focused much more on the relationship aspect rather than the nuts and bolts. I was focused on learning real estate because I felt like I didn’t know it early on that I think I circumvented some relationships. Even early on in my real estate investing career, I learned things about people after the fact that I was ashamed that I didn’t know. As an example, there was a seller who sold a property to me that I built a relationship with over time. After he sold the property to me, it was years later when I learned that his son died in the military and all these things from something else. I was ashamed that I never asked the question. It always reminded me that we can be focused on business but if you’re not asking the questions, if you’re not invested in the other person’s life, then what does it all mean?
