lenges and implementing corrective actions. His task complete, he left to start his new job with Microsoft, thinking that working as a CTO for a lending bank was not practical as he would pass up an executive salary. “A few days after joining Mi- crosoft, the bank decided to outsource the software de- velopment to be sold back to them for a mid-eight-figure number over five years. That agreement made it worth- while for me to start Liquid Logics,” he said. Founded in 2004, Liquid Logics provides Next Generation Cloud- Based Loan Origination Software (LOS) primarily for private/hard money lenders. As founder of such company, it is no surprise Kaddah’s preferred investing strategy is to invest in fintech that supports real estate investments and to use AI to make decisions. “I am excited about AI and tech prefoliation,” Kaddah said of the evolving REI in- dustry. “But I am concerned about keeping the balance between healthy markets and price bubbles, so I am always on the lookout to re- view the data and indicators for a specific local market.” For beginners in the real estate in- dustry, Kaddah’s number-one piece of advice is to build a network. “Knowwhere you can go for help and for advice. Ask for support on every aspect, then start with projects you can reasonably man- age. Crawl, walk, then run,” Kaddah said. •
