Keep the best and sell the rest. That’s the motto of David Dodge, a killer wholesaler from St. Louis. He’s on the show today dropping some real nuggets for real estate investors of all kinds. David is on fire right now, doing wholesales, fix and flips, and he just published his first book. Tune in now to catch this guy while you can, because his real estate investments are really about to take off!

David then started renting properties out early on but quickly realized there’s a better way to do this business. That’s where the inspiration for David’s real estate investment strategy came from, and it’s really evolved over the past decade. You’ll want to pay attention to how David developed his profit master strategy. He’s professionally cherrypicking the wholesale properties that fit in with his goals and he’s spending the rest of his time honing in on what he calls the BRRR strategy.

This BRRR strategy David breaks down today is something banks love, too. We’re not talking about big banks here. In fact, David prefers to have his property loans with a few of his favorite banks rather than just one or two. He shares why other real estate investors should be jumping on this trend, and delves further into why he’s using private lender funds to invest in his wholesale properties.

Remember - none of David’s success happened overnight. He took the time to invest in his education through books and mentorships in order to get to the point he is today. David shares where this consistent motivation comes from, but I want you to remember that it starts right here. The challenge for you is to apply the golden nuggets you learn today to your own business and your own profit master strategy to see what works.
