Great Podcast!

I’ve listened through 70-80% of this podcast and I feel like Jeff is talking to me directly in almost all of them. His whole vibe is great and genuine. The way he goes about running his RE business is how I strive to put mine together.
Thanks Jeff for all the valuable information you continue to put out!

Useful and insightful real estate podcast

I am a real estate professional and have been for 30 years and this is by far the best real estate podcast out there. It is highly useful with insightful ways to think about real estate, and in this Google age, thinking is a lost art.
