David Dodge has 15 years experience in real estate but only found out about wholesaling five years ago! He wished he’d known about this niche sooner. It took him 10 years to acquire 10 properties and he did it the slow/traditional way. Over the last 14 months, he’s aggressively bought 45 houses using the BRRRR method. David breaks down this method and explains step-by-step how he was able to achieve this rapid growth.
