Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever

Joseph Cornwell started his career as a full-time police officer in 2011. Four years later, he began educating himself on all things real estate by reading books, listening to podcasts, and attending meetups. He began buying rental properties and scaling his portfolio.

In this episode, he shares why he became a real estate agent before investing in properties, what made him decide to start a general contracting company, and how he planned the transition from his W-2 job to a full-time career in commercial real estate.
