The Best Way to Learn Real Estate

I started listening to this podcast when I got my license a few years back and it has taught me SO much. Listening to what top producers did to build their business? There’s no better way to learn! I’ve adopted so many ideas I learned from this podcast into my own business and it has made a HUGE difference in how I work and the success I’ve seen. I’ve searched high and low for good podcasts with REAL advice and this is far and away the best one.

Amazing Podcast!

This podcast contains an insane amount of valuable information. Real estate rockstars and lenders such as Ryan D’Aprile and Joel Schaub regularly make appearances. I have learned so much from the guests on the show and the host D.J. Paris (which is his real name). If you only subscribe to one real estate podcast, this is the one!
