Build A Million Dollar Portfolio In Just 5 Years

with Ben Walhood


Don't miss this opportunity!

Ben Walhood has been investing in real estate since 2005, when he house-hacked his first home, putting nothing down and renting the extra rooms to his friends - living for free in a brand new home, while still attending college full-time.

At the end of 2013, Ben left his neurosurgery sales position to pursue his real estate passion full-time. His primary strategy is to fix-and-rent residential properties in working class neighborhoods, including condos, single family homes, and apartment buildings, primarily in the western suburbs of Chicago. In addition to a rental portfolio of several dozen units, he likes to occasionally fix-and-flip in those same markets.

He has been interviewed by CNBC and the Chicago Tribune, and he has been a featured guest on a variety of real estate podcasts including Bigger Pockets (Episode 177).

Outside of real estate, Ben enjoys traveling the country and the world with his wife and four young children, as well as both water and downhill skiing.
