Today's guest is John Roy, the country's leading broker and consultant in parking lots and the head of JNL Parking.

In today's podcast, John tells us how he got his start in parking lots while he was a student — buying some dilapidated houses across the street from the Notre Dame football stadium, tearing them down and putting in parking lots instead.

And he also tells us why you should never do what he did to get started. Instead, like other real estate assets, John says to go for the current cash flow.
