Investor Profile: Go Sasaki
As real-estate values fall and foreclosures rise, Go Sasaki is experiencing something akin to a past life. “We took a beating,” he says, with shifts in the market and the learning curve that is often a rite of passage in the realestate investment business. But Go is referring to the early 1980s, not today. “I made so many mistakes,” he says with a smile, as he recounts story upon story of investments turned sour and others that bore fruit. Go, a quiet, humble man with a beaming smile, was reluctant to be interviewed, but his experience and its relevance to today’s real-estate market proved too compelling to ignore.
