About Our Guest
Adrian has been investing in real estate for 15 years, starting out as a hobby landlord. Only knowing what the banks told him, he followed that path for 10 years. 
It was then that he discovered his passion for real estate through meetings, like the Invest Florida Meetup. As the market shifted, so did Adrian's strategies for investing, leading him to mobile homes. This has now been his investment target for the last few years. 
AdrIan and his wife Erin are a husband and wife team, and they founded "My Wife Buy$" to help people sell their mobile home fast and make the process as simple as possible.
Adrian was a previous guest on episode 175.
