Kenny Estes

Today on the BiggerPockets Podcast we want to share an interview with someone who runs his investment business in a unique but powerful way – and it’s sure to both inform and entertain you. On today’s episode, we sit down with real estate investor Kenny Estes and chat about investing in rural America, funding deals through private money, building a team, and “going big” with a bold exit strategy. Join us today for a really awesome interview and one of the highest caliber conversations we’ve ever had (and one of the largest debates as well!)
