The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

In this episode, your host Dr. David Phelps switches roles and is the interviewee! David and Dustin Burleson of Burleson Seminars sit down to have a conversation about David’s own journey into real estate.

In this interview, they cover how David first discovered and jumped into real estate and the techniques that have helped him maintain consistent, predictable success. They talk about how investing in local real estate markets is the key to a successful but manageable business model.

David then talks about what makes Freedom Founders special, and why good relationships and vetting your contacts is essential for doing good business. David will be speaking at the Customer Service Summit later this year, so be sure to take advantage of this sneak preview!
