Jason Hartman has built a real estate empire, purchasing hundreds of single-family homes around the country since he was just 19 years old.

In this episode of the Capital Gains podcast, Hartman shares how his marketing skills helped him build his own real estate empire, and helped him create a business around helping others invest in real estate.

Hartman also teaches investment, and makes it possible for people like you invest in turnkey properties without having to put together the deals or the management teams yourself.

"I always kind of considered myself a marketer who just so happens to use real estate as the product. And I think the combination of those two have been fantastic," Hartman said.

"It's been very good to me as a career. I think income property is the most historically proven asset class in the entire world. I have said that thousands and thousands and thousands of times, and no one ever seems to argue with me about it. So I guess it must be true."

In addition to his real estate empire, Hartman created his own podcasting company through which he hosts 21 podcast shows that have more than 3,000 episodes. The shows cover a broad spectrum of topics, ranging from business strategy to investing to living the good life.

"I started podcasting back in the days when nobody knew what podcasting was, about 13 years ago," Hartman said. He also has a financial services firm and recently founded FreeCourt.com - an online dispute resolution platform to help address the backlog of cases created by the problematic U.S. court system.

I hope you enjoy the interview above as much as I did. I'm really inspired now to try to replicate the success he's created. For more information about his work, visit JasonHartman.com.
