Income Replacement Case Study: Peeling Back The Layers Of Actual Income Replacement

We bring you one of our favorite clients – the one and only Erik Schaumann! Eric started investing in real estate with us a little over 10 years ago. Today, he is completely retired from his passive real estate income! Tune in to find out how we achieved that outcome.

“At the end of the day, replacing your income depends on the standard of living you want to have.” Steve Earl

Erik relied on simple and conservative single-family residential real estate to replace his income. And if you listened to this podcast before, you know this is our formula for real estate success. Erik started his real estate journey ten years ago with just one single-family property. Today he has nine properties in his portfolio and he’s completely replaced his income. 

The best part? He’s been traveling the world and living his life while we did the work. We’re super excited to talk with him and to have you hear what a successful real estate journey looks like!
