A work friend gave him the name of a real estate education and mentoring group. After he went to that education and mentoring group and was hooked on real estate. As you can hear in this podcast, Kevin now has the passion for real estate. Today, with the help of that education and mentoring group, Kevin and his partners own and control 3 large apartment buildings with 488 units. He has also invested passively in over 3200 apartment units. Wow!! Listen to how Kevin embraced apartment investing and retired from corporate engineering at age 41. Way to go, Kevin!
