Jesse Burrell | The REI Data King

Over the past few years, the real estate investment industry has become extremely competitive and investors must use every tool at their disposal to differentiate themselves from the rest.

For Jesse Burrell, Co-Founder and Owner at BatchLeads, this meant using data to pinpoint homeowners and target them effectively. 

Also called the "REI Data King", Jesse is known for opening up new opportunities for real estate investors. Using big data and his skip tracing toolkit, he was able to speed up a process that used to take days or even weeks, giving real estate investors effective tools to find and close deals. 

On today's episode of the Catching Knives podcast, Jesse drops a tremendous amount of nuggets, knowledge bombs, and useful tips.
