Welcome back to another exciting episode of “Real Estate Raw.” Today I have the privilege of being joined by a fantastic real estate mind. Rod Khleif is a passionate real estate investor who has been a mentor to me in this business. He joined us to talk about a number of topics, including the real estate market, his charitable works, and of course, real estate investment.
