“Trading up” to successfully retire financially free at 40!

On today’s show, Brandon and David interview retired real estate broker Tim Rhode, who explains how he was able to buy great deals and 1031 exchange them into financial freedom!

Tim shares some fantastic advice on playing great financial defense to achieve an early retirement, crushing it in real estate sales, and locking up deals during his first conversation with sellers.

Tim also shares how knowing his market led to him making hundreds of thousands buying land in the path of progress, how to build a “fulfillment triangle," and how he recognized the market turning in 2006 and cashed out before losing money.

Tim has a huge heart, is committed to helping others get out of the rat race, and shares some incredible advice on how to do so. Make sure you listen for his description of the several levels of financial freedom and his belief that those who make it to the top of the mountain should throw down the rope for the rest still climbing.
