#83: Anthony Walker: The Agent as the Investor at Buckingham Investments

“I wanted to have a day job that allowed me to run an active income business, but was also going to give me exposure, experience and the knowledge to grow a real estate portfolio in the space that I wanted to be in.” -Anthony Walker


Today I am interviewing my friend and fellow investor Anthony Walker who is  the Managing Broker at Buckingham Investments. He is also a trusted advisor helping his clients reach financial freedom and retirement security. He is an educator teaching workshops with Buckingham Investments as well as a noted speaker in the Southern California region at educational and financial organizations. His focus is on the South Bay area of Los Angeles. 

Anthony Walker: Went to business school in 2008 and received his MBA from  Loyola Marymount University which is where he took his first real estate course. Deciding he wanted to trade his 9-5 routine in auto insurance claims for entrepreneurship, Anthony first how came to Buckingham Invesemtns as a client, where they helped him purchase his first investment property. He has developed an expansive real estate portfolio as an investor while still working as a Broker at Buckingham Investments.
