Jamil Damji | From an Immigrant's Son to a Real Estate Expert

The 2008 crash bankrupted a great many in the real estate industry, and this week's guest is no exception. However, he decided to pivot into sketch comedy rather than simply accept defeat, biding his time until he could re-enter the industry and become an internationally renowned expert in real estate investing/wholesaling.

In today's episode of The Higher Standard, Chris sits down with Jamil Damji, real estate expert, co-founder of KeyGlee, the #1 wholesale company in the world, and star of 'Triple Digit Flip,' a reality show on A&E all about making $100,000 or more on fix and flip projects.

You'll learn something of Jamil's background as the son of immigrant parents, and his "accidental" entry into the real estate industry.

You'll discover how he pivoted from the real estate industry to a temporary career in sketch comedy after the crash of 2008, before moving back to real estate in 2012. 

You'll also learn how he and his team landed their successful show on A&E called, 'Triple Digit Flip.'
