On February 3, 2016, Jason Hartman went on the Michael Quarles Real Estate Show to discuss his life in real estate, the value of leverage, his 10 Commandments, and the importance of being in the game.
Michael is a real estate broker and contractor. Throughout his career he has completed thousands of real estate deals and built over 70 new construction units. He has done fix and flips, assignments, wholesale deals and many others types of deals. His specialty, however, is “WholeTailing”, a strategy he created to maximize profit when buying houses at a discount.
