Back for another? Well let’s get into it! Today we are speaking with Natalie & Eugene!

Natalie and Eugene are house flippers in the Washington D.C. area. Eugene got his start in real estate as a teenager, and became an apprentice for a house flipper in Michigan in the early 2000’s. Natalie and Eugene got married and moved to the D.C. area, where they now run their own flipping business.

Its a great free resource for self-taught real estate investors. On a side note, its also the site where Sam, Jeanne and I met (co-founders of GrindDaily).
