Marko Rubel left his corporate career a few years ago, and today, after several hundred successful transactions, his real estate holdings are estimated to be in excess of $4 to $5 million. And Dave Lindahl – who started out as a dead-broke landscaper with no real estate experience – now owns 5,136 units.
