Listen In As…
Pam rewinds the tape and talks about how she developed her career in land development and leasing to companies such as Walgreen’s, Chase, McDonald’s to name a few.
It all started with the development of a couple little restaurant chains you may have heard of… Pam developed 50 Chili’s from the ground up and On The Border for the entire country.
Pam walks us through the development process in order of sequence:
Identifying the right pad site
Putting it under contract
Then closing on the land
All the while, trying to find a tenant before it even closes. She doesn’t put anything under contract unless she’s 75% sure she could fill it because, she stresses that, reputation is key!
