More About This Show
Brian Freeman is workers’ compensation attorney based out of Southern California. Working in a service-based industry, he realized that there are only so many hours in the day. If he wanted to create true legacy wealth, he’d need to find a source of passive income. A friend of his recommended this podcast, and Brian listened to every single episode!

He became convinced that real estate investing was the path for him, and booked a call with our team. After discussing his goals, and his options, he felt confident. We provided Brian with information about a few properties, and he also did his own research. He decided to purchase a $40,000 home, which needed $5000 in rehabs.

Brian was able to purchase his first investment with cash; he owns it free and clear. He and his wife had been putting money aside as a safety net for a number of years. Since they never had to use it for an emergency, he felt safe using the funds to make a purchase that would produce a positive cash flow.

Today, Brian’s buy and hold property brings him $700 in passive income every single month. He looks forward to learning more about real estate investing, and one day investing in a portfolio of properties. Brian’s Freedom Number is ten rental properties.
