Awesome

Can’t wait for every new ep. Most informative real estate pod I’ve found.

Practical Everyday Knowledge

Drew provides a refreshing outlook alongside his wealth of knowledge that you can put to use day one.

There isn’t much fluff or redundancy about miscellaneous information. He goes into the details of his investments and addresses questions that new and experienced investors have.

I highly recommend his podcast and have already shared it.
