From the Founder

I started the COT for two primary reasons, to diversify commercial real estate, and to create a network to call upon in the case that I got laid off in the recession of 2008-9.  Fortunately, that pink slip never came, but I have been blessed beyond belief. As a result, the Circle of Trust has grown from 4 people, to the Fighting Fifteen, the Fierce Thirty, and to more than 5,000 of the best human beings ever assembled.  The COT has become the biggest family in town, and I am honored to be its founder.
