14 years ago, Daniel Blackwell was living out of his car in the parking lot of his office. Today, Dan has closed over a billion dollars in sales and struck a name for himself as one of the sharpest agents in multifamily real estate. His secret? It’s not a secret! Dan has one of the most consistent and insightful video channels out there, and he’s always willing to share his knowledge with anyone looking for help—including you.
This week, I talked with Dan about:
- Making video that works for you
- Breaking into the apartment game
- A checklist for your renovations
And a lot more! Dan’s not giving any fluff here. This is hard, actionable advice from a guy who always thinks steps ahead. I recommend you watch or listen now.
