With a deep background in financial services at companies like Monett, Missouri-based Jack Henry & Associates Inc., Travis started Tribevest after a terrible experience trying to get into real estate investment with his brothers. TribeVest began when five relatives decided to pool their resources, each saving $500 a month to invest. The agreement was fruitful! They’ve been able to purchase investment properties, become partners in a physician’s practice, even buy a prize-winning racehorse. As a result, Travis has harnessed his expertise leadership to help others. Travis is leading Tribevest to solve the financial collaboration problem and evolve as the problems of our users do.
Travis Smith joins John Carney today in The Real Estate Locker Room to discuss the benefit of finding your tribe.
