I will never forget the first meeting Alex and I had with a “real” investor. Alex found him by cold calling “I buy houses cash signs” in the neighborhoods we were working. We were so excited to have a sit down with a legit investor and I am pretty sure it showed (mind you we were 23 & 24 and knew almost nothing about real estate).

The summer of my junior year in college I worked for an internship where I ran my own franchise of an exterior painting company. I did my own marketing and sales.
