This interview with real estate expert, Max Keller, is full of interesting stories and valuable advice, from beginning to end. Max went from teaching math to selling real estate to writing books (despite being a dyslexic who only got into reading as an adult). Although he had hard times along the way, he has thrived in all three areas, all the while remembering to have fun and placing a big emphasis on helping others.
