Show Notes

David Thompson started his investing career after leaving the corporate world. He founded Thompson Investing, which provides investors opportunities to invest with experienced operators in MF apartments, self storage and manufactured home parks. As general partner and sponsor in syndication deals, he has raised significant private equity capital. He helped provide investor funds to purchase over 6,000 apartment units worth over $500M and owns thousands of self storage units and MHP lots.

David’s purpose and drive are his family, and also his commitment to integrity all the time – when it’s “visible”, and when nobody is watching.
