Jim McCabe runs Turbo Properties, a property buying company that operates in Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. Their name is founded on the principle of helping clients provide a fast sale of their properties without having to deal with an agent. Jim is proud to have built his company in a way that it allows them to pay their clients more than other house buying companies, and he’s just getting started. He has recently wrapped up his first year in the real estate investing industry, while still having a full-time job, and he has only good stories to share.  

Today, Jim shares the story of his first year in the industry. He opens up about the various ways he learned how to work in real estate and the motivations behind pursuing this kind of career. He also shares the different challenges every beginner makes and tips to help them push through the difficulty of starting out.
