A wealth of knowledge

This Podcast provides an abundance of knowledge on real estate investing from numerous aspects that I’ve neglected up until this point.

If you want to hear what professionals in the industry are doing, this is the Podcast you want to have your ears glued to.

Dre and Ike ask great questions and are never hesitant to make sure listeners catching on to these “slices”.

All in all, I tune in every week and even listen to older episodes to make sure I’m not missing any pertinent info.

Way to go guys.
