Warren Buffett Real Estate Investor
Valuation, Opportunity, Partnerships, Investment Horizon, and Future
Warren Buffett started real estate investing very early in life. At the age of 11, his first stock purchase was Cities Service, a gas station chain, now known as Citgo. At 14, he bought 40 acres of Nebraska farm land. This was before he learned the three most valuable lessons about investing taught to him by his college professor that he has applied to his investments for over six decades. Without these important principles, Buffett would not have built America’s 5th largest company.
Buffett’s real estate experience and holdings are vast. His investment vehicle and conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway, owns the second largest independent residential real estate brokerage firm in the USA. Berkshire owns the largest factory built home manufacturer, the largest single location home furnishings store, a one of a kind commercial mortgage company, and the largest commercial property and casualty insurer. Although long associated with Coca Cola and American Express, his largest common stock investment is the leading home mortgage lender in the USA.

How They Have Influenced, Guided, and Made Him a Better Investor, Manager, Communicator, Philanthropist, and Person”
Warren Buffett readily admits that Berkshire Hathaway (now America's 6th largest company) would not have existed without the influence and guidance of his late first wife, Susan. She also helped shape his charitable and political beliefs steering him away from his boyhood and his father's deeply held governmental philosophies. His long time editor, his bridge partner, and even his closest adviser are female. Several women entrepreneurs and professional managers have sold their businesses to him.
His conglomerate has two women directors and his family foundation has a majority female board. And one of his largest public investments of $11 billion has a woman President and CEO. Warren is optimistic about the future of the USA economy, primarily because of the impact women will make as their full potential is unleashed.
