    I love this podcast. My husband and I are building a portfolio in Baltimore and hold a lot of the same values. We have always talked about making “a vacant house a home”. We probably own homes in some of the same neighborhoods. Great representation of Baltimore investors!

  2. Great podcast! Very curious if you guys could interview his realtor to have her about her system that she put in place to streamline pumping out offers instead of writing each individual offer for the investor? And also, was I clear that where he found most of his properties were from MLS offers and one or two from Craig’s? Or is there other marketing efforts that he goes about to find properties?
