Dan Austin

In 2016 Dan Austin was climbing the corporate ladder but struggled with the idea of spending 40 years doing the same thing everyday. Instead of waiting around for a fake gold watch he drained his savings account to buy his first rental property and embark on his entrepreneurial journey.

After a few years of slow progress towards his goal of financial freedom Dan decided to double down. In 2020 Dan started a wholesale real estate business and in just two years bought and held over $10 million in real estate assets while also closing 150+ real estate transactions. Dan and his team have since launched Backyard Homebuyers, a national home buying service where his team works with real estate agents and investors to discounted real estate assets.

Dan is also the host of the Collecting Keys podcast, a show focused on sharing the daily ups and downs of growing a real estate business.
