My guest today is Corey “The Big Kahuna” Peterson, the founder of Kahuna Wealth Builders. Corey is a real estate investor, educator, and a member of the Collective Genius Mastermind. He specializes in multifamily units.
Corey has humble beginnings, he didn’t start his career in real estate until his 30s. He began wholesaling properties and pivoted into apartment complexes. Corey shares his business philosophy and tells me what he looks for in a deal. Corey’s experience is a great example of how to take good care of your investors and how well they will take care of you in return.
