My advice would be don’t let pride get in the way of a good business decision. I don’t think commercial real estate is a good deal right now with everything that’s going on in the world, more and more businesses working from home means potential downside in the next few years. However, doing a deal with a cRNA or any other type of mid-level shouldn’t be avoided just because of the type of profession they are in. I hate them overstepping their bounds in medicine as much as the next guy but I like to think I’m a solid enough businessman to swallow my pride and do a good deal if one presented itself.
If you’re looking at a pure real estate/landlord scenario it doesn’t matter what your partner’s educational background is, it matters where their business sense is at. I wouldn’t let emotions get in the way of a good deal. Who cares if a CRNA gets rich owning 5 Jimmy Johns as long as they’re not asking you to sign charts remotely. But you need to be able to respect your partners and if you can’t separate your feelings from medicine to real estate I wouldn’t do it.
