Dusty Bowling

This Week’s Episode:

I am joined by Dustin Bowling on this episode of Just Start Real Estate.  Dustin is flipping about 10 houses a year in the Covington, Indiana area. Dustin is an aggressive growing investor that I think will be a superstar in the next few years.

In this conversation, you will hear about the incredible things that Dustin is accomplishing in his area.  What’s fascinating is that he’s doing these things without systems.  Just imagine what he’ll be able to do when he implements systems.

Dustin has a background in law enforcement and is now doing real estate full time.  Being in a small-town, he shares how real estate in these types of communities varies from real estate in more populated areas.  He explains the value of character and integrity in areas like this.
