While in college for history, Brandon rented out some rooms in his apartment to make some extra money and that's how he got started. Instead of going to law school, he ended up buying a house, flipped it, and made $20,000. He knew real estate was for him after that.
As of today, Brandon has about 100 properties, although he's currently looking to buy hundreds of more mobile homes in mobile home parks.
Wanting to find a work environment and partners that felt like his regular laid-back life led Brandon to dream big and make plans to get there.
