Barbara Corcoran weighs in on Donald Trump (again)

therealdeal.com“Shark Tank” investor Barbara Corcoran knows Donald Trump better than most people. They both built their real estate fortunes around the same time in New York City. “I grew up with him,” Corcoran told Business Insider during a “Shark Tank” event at New York’s Paley Center for Media this week.

In the early 1970s, both Corcoran and Trump were starting their real estate careers.

Corcoran co-founded a real estate business called The Corcoran Group with a $1,000 loan from her then-boyfriend and co-founder. She then later started The Corcoran Report, which followed NYC’s real estate trends. At around the same time, Trump took control of his father’s real estate and construction business, which he later named The Trump Organization.
