He also has another career, so his real estate investments are not his main focus, which makes the passive nature of his investments ideal for him. Joe digs into Anton’s portfolio and story, extracting the lessons for us to learn from. If you enjoyed today’s episode remember to subscribe in iTunes and leave us a review!

“I don’t want to list your home” - that’s the phrase that started everything for Dan years ago. As a new agent, Dan had to find a way to get some business from all of the FSBO’s in his area. Rather than door knocking and asking to list their home, he’d simply ask if he could take some buyers through the home, and help with the paperwork if they had a buyer.
