He was able to build a portfolio of 6 rental units for less than $180,000 via foreclosures and estate sales. To this day, he still manages his successful holdings in this business, and provides multiple families with quality affordable housing.
In the second half of 2017, Chris also founded a brand consulting firm that has since evolved into BrandSuccessTools.com
