Real Estate Talk: Atlanta Hawks, Trap Music Museum, & Home Building


Living in Atlanta was like living in Wakanda (you'll hear me say this a lot). The superpower/special sauce was confidence in research. Black people there know what they can do as a community and fully believe it. Not to get beside the point. This panel is about real estate and how to balance out the equity that's distributed on some of Atlanta's biggest deals. As a non-real estate expert, I found it incredibly informative to learn that most of these deals don't require me to be an expert.


Below is my breakdown of the video and a few fun facts on the two caucasian gentlemen you may not know:

Tony Ressler - Antony P. Ressler(born October 12, 1960) is an American billionaire private equity tycoon and venture capitalist, based in Beverly Hills. He co-founded the private equity firms; Apollo Global Management in 1990, and Ares Management in 1997. Ressler is the majority and controlling owner of the Atlanta Hawks. His group purchased the team in June 2015 for an estimated $730 million- $850 million


Dallas Tanner - Tanner owns over 70,000 units of Invitation Homes stock worth over $8,617,357 and over the last 3 years he sold INVH stock worth over $2,091,600. Currently, Invitation Homes has a market cap of 15 billion dollars.


Many of the major deals spoken here came through relationships.
