A breath of fresh air!

If you are a real estate investor - experienced or brand new - stop searching the archives and listen to this podcast! Jeff explains the why behind the how of finding your market, targeting the right deals, explaining key communication ideals, and so much more. Everything he does is based on finding the win-win for everyone involved in a real estate transaction, and the marketing examples and ideas are amazing. Puts everything into perspective for me, and I’m no longer feeling sleezy for being a REI. 😉
