How he sold over 2,500 homes as an agent, bought as many rentals as he could, flipped houses, and ended up retiring very early with a substantial portfolio.

Click on the green button below to listen to the podcast How did Tim first get into real estate? When Tim was working part-time as a grocery clerk he bought his first house. He loved the house so much and the process of buying the home, he decided to become a real estate agent. In the 1980's he got his real estate license and jumped into the business. He found immediate success thanks to systems he put in place and hard work. He made sure he talked to as many people as he possibly could and set as many listing appointments as he could. He would prospect three hours a day unless he had enough listing appointments to justify using his time on other activities. How hard is it to become a real estate agent? How did Tim invest in real estate while he was an agent? As Tim built up his real estate agent business, he was also buying as many rental properties as he could. He admits he had a very aggressive strategy that was risky, but also motivating. He would sometimes get properties under contract when he knew he did not have the money to pay for them. He would have to work extra hard as an agent to earn the cash to buy the properties. He attributes his hard work and sacrifice when he was younger to being able to live a competently free life in his 50's. He also lived very frugally even as he earned more money so that he could invest in more real estate.
