David Dawkins is the founder and owner of Seven Bridges Realty Group LLC, a brokerage and proper management assistance firm that helps buyers and sellers make the most out of their investments. He is also the co-host of the podcast The Professional Investor, where he teaches others how to become full-time real estate investors and take control of their lives by mastering personal finances.

Today, he is on a mission to share his experience-based advice with everybody.
