This week on The BiggerPockets Podcast, we'll learn all about what it takes to branch out in your real estate investing endeavors with our guest Curt Bidwell. 

Curt's first real estate opportunity arose while he was working as a pastor, when a few good friends asked if he wanted to partner with them on a local fourplex.

In this informative episode, Michael shares with us how he manages his properties, the criteria he uses to find new places to rent out and the methods he follows to work successfully with hard money lenders and agents to boost his revenue.
