About Me

Screen Shot 2014-04-28 at 5.09.54 PMMy name is Brandon, and I am an entrepreneur, real estate investor, author, youth leader, worship leader, and husband to the most amazing woman I’ve ever met.

I bought my first house at 21 years old, fixed it up, and sold it for a small profit. Although my original plan was to use the money to backpack around Europe, I ended up using the money instead to pay for my dream wedding with my favorite girl. Rather than Europe, I discovered myself and my future.

I ended up doing a lot more real estate investing, gaining dozens of rental properties over the next few years, partnering with different folks to find ways to invest in real estate without using my own cash by creating win-win solutions for others. It’s worked out really well and I continue to buy and rent properties.

Additionally, I was hired to be the Senior Editor at BiggerPockets.com, the real estate investing social network that was largely responsible for the real estate success I’d found thus far. I am now the co-host on the very popular BiggerPockets Podcast (The #1 rated real estate podcast in iTunes) and write blog posts nearly every day for the site and other sites across the internet.

I also serve in my local church, doing whatever needs to be done. I currently help lead the youth on Wednesday nights and lead worship on Sunday mornings for the church. I have an amazing church full of really incredible people.

Finally, I am an unashamed Christian. This means I have examined the evidence and I truly believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to get to heaven and live a fulfilled life here on earth. I believe no one is “good enough” to get to heaven, that we all fail to live up to the “perfection” required to enter heaven. I believe Jesus came to earth so he could live that perfect life, meet the requirements that the Perfect God set forth, and pay the penalty for me not living a perfect life in my place. No, I don’t understand why this works or why he’d do it. Only that he loved me enough to do it. I accept that and live my life according to that truth. If you believe that also – awesome! If not – you are still cool in my book… but we should talk :)
