On this episode of Dentist Freedom Blueprint, Jeff Watson – attorney, real estate investor, and speaker – joins us to talk about his career in investing and lobbying for better real estate laws.
Jeff bought his first investment property in 1993 and has been active in the Ohio investment scene ever since. He has synthesized his expertise in law, real estate, and advocacy in his recent work to help pass House Resolution Bill 5301, which will impact real estate investors all over the country.
Jeff talks about how he got started, how he’s balanced practicing law and investing, and how his day-to-day work has changed over time. Jeff also shares how his personal philosophy (which is a little different than that of other investors) shapes his investment practices. Lastly, Jeff also mentions how you can get involved with the Seller Finance Coalition and help reform real estate laws in the United States.
