  1. Holy cow dude – it’s almost as if I forgot we were going to broadcast this. I was cringing in my seat because I may have shared a little too much.

    I just hope that some folks can pull a takeaway or two that can save them tons of trouble in their real estate investing.

    Thanks for having me on the show!

    • Seriously – I don’t think you overshared . . . I think you gave some great insight and believe that many people will find this to be quite valuable. Thanks again for the interview and I do hope we can do another one in the not-too distant future.
