Robert buys distressed properties in the ranch real estate market in the greater Yellowstone area, restores them, and provides his investors with both a financial and environmental return.

Robert shares the ins and outs of the process, the attraction to investors focused on sustainable investing, and what it’s been like to have tailwinds like COVID and even the TV hit Yellowstone.
