One amazing deal can change the trajectory of your real estate investing, but so can smaller deals that add up to plenty of cash flow to grow your portfolio. Brad Dumas is a wealth manager and ex-Notre Dame football player, who accomplished this by starting his real estate journey with turning his primary residences into rentals. He’s sharing his acquisition strategy, buying criteria, and how they’ve both changed over his few years in the business.

Similar to Collecting Keys Podcast hosts, Brad has also had to learn the ups and downs of working with contractors, employees, and tenants. If you can relate, you’ll want to hear his advice on finding people you can trust to do business with.
