Who is Thomas?

Ever since childhood, he had the entrepreneurial bug and a passion for business. This led to earning a Bachelor’s in Business Management with a concentration in Accounting and landing a role with a national accounting firm.

Shortly before graduating, real estate investing caught his attention. He attended networking events and seminars, listened to podcasts, and read every book he could find on the topic. Armed with this knowledge, he invested in several properties as a passive investor before actively participating in the syndication of an 82-unit apartment community as a member of the sponsorship team.

By this point, he was more than convinced that real estate was not only one of the best investments he could make, but it was the industry where he wanted to focus his business career. Today, he combines his passion for real estate and his accounting background into his role as a tax strategist with Hall CPA.
