Ron learned Mandarin Chinese growing up and has fully fluent staff who read and write Chinese.

Ron Rohde is a Texan with a long history in north Texas real estate. As soon as he had a driver’s license, he was delivering keys to tenants, supervising contractors, or delivering notarized closing documents for a variety of rental properties.

With both parents as licensed real estate brokers and mortgage lenders, it was a natural evolution to advise clients on real estate transactions.

“I’ve always enjoyed careful, precise reading and, after becoming a lawyer, knew how to blend my experience with an industry I am passionate about.”- Ron

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY: we spend time getting to know our client's experience level, individual goals, project goals, and budgets. Without knowing this information, too many lawyers dictate their own prescriptions on clients without adjusting advice to the particular needs of the client.

Are you investing for a shorter hold period (<24 months) or a longer hold (60+ months)? Are you interested in mitigating risk (stabilized asset) or increasing returns (value add)? Why are you interested in commercial real estate over other investments?

Without any of that information, it's impossible to talk strategy. And the thing is, A LOT of people hire a lawyer exactly like this.

They follow the crowd. They do what they're told to do.They forget to ever ask themselves what do THEY want. Without knowing where you want to go you're never going to get there.
