Welcome back to another episode of the Real Estate Excellence Podcast! Today, I have Matt McCord on the podcast.  Matt McCord is a 20-year special operations veteran.  He has traveled the world defending freedom and today he is not only a successful real estate agent he is giving back.  Matt started Legacy Realty Investments where he builds spec homes for workforce housing.  He makes a very slim margin to keep this business going and looks to fill the homes with those who are unable to buy the many high-priced homes in the area.  Giving them a home near their work and family.  The McCord Coastal Team with EXP Realty is an up-and-coming powerhouse in St Augustine Real Estate.  

 

Real estate can be tough and tiring.  In this episode, Matt delves into his journey from combat veteran to becoming productive in real estate.  Dive in with us and take a look at a new perspective of real estate investing!
