Jefferson Lilly is amazing!!

Jefferson Lilly is such a wealth of information, my wife and I have listened to all of his podcasts and also watched his interviews many times while learning how to be better mobile home park investors. We can’t say enough good things about this man! Thank you Jefferson :)

Mackenzie H. C. ,

I listen to the episodes over and over!

Jefferson and Brad do such a fantastic and thorough job going through the nuts and bolts of how to evaluate a park, red flags to look for, how to successfully operate a park once you own it, and much more. Seriously, this info is worth thousands of dollars. I am in the process of buying my first park as a result of my time listening to this podcast. I highly recommend to anyone who is serious about getting into the Industry.
