That was a fun episode! When Mark made $800k on that duplex, did he go back and thank the realtor who convinced him to buy a property?

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. not just because I think Family Guy is an awesome show but I thought that he was also a very bright individual using his skills and talents Beyond his career!

Another GREAT podcast. I found Mark’s story fun, informative, and inspiring...can relate to loving your day job but wanting the freedom and stability that come with real estate investment - no W2 job is “safe” these days. Also great tips on using price per square foot as a good way to identify potential deals and riding out market dips. His story has me considering making the leap into larger MFs using a property manager - wish he had talked more about that transition in terms of setting up an LLC, getting financing, and finding the right PM.
