“My passion for real estate began as a student at Texas A&M University. Soon after graduation I began my real estate investment career by purchasing several income properties. My first purchase was a duplex. My first tenant paid 87% of my PITI (principal, interest, taxes & insurance). I soon picked up a roommate who paid more than the other 13%! After that, I knew I was onto something.” – Kyle McCaw
