Is small thinking holding you back? Not after this episode! Today on the BiggerPockets Podcast, Josh and Brandon talk with Kevin Carroll, a real estate investor who decided 18 months ago that he wanted to start flipping houses… and has done 83 flips in the past year and a half! Perhaps most impressively, Kevin did most of these flips out of state utilizing strategic partnerships — a strategy that just might change the way you think about real estate forever. Sit back and prepare to have your mindset expanded and let “big thinking” take over.
