Hidden Gems: Meet Brandon Lindsey of Brandon Buys

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brandon Lindsey. 

Hi Brandon, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Growing up around the Detroit area in MI, I left home at the age of 16 and finished high school while living with a best friend. From there I decided to move in with my grandfather in KY to go to college. He cut me a deal; if I learned to become his farmhand, he’d put me through college in return. After graduating college, I started my first business, which had nothing to do with my degree by the way, and spent the next two years miserably failing. I learned a lot of valuable lessons along the way though. Nashville had always been my dream city so I finally decided to close the business down, pack up and move. Only, I got here just before the tornado and covid came in March 2020. 

It was quite the introduction, to say the least. But I spent that first year bouncing from job to job just trying to make ends meet during the pandemic. A few times I even had to ask family for help paying rent. But during that time, I was really getting into the world of investing. Real estate was heating up and I found myself learning about it at any point that I could. I’d listen to podcasts at work, read about it online, and consume just about anything I could find on it for free or cheap. I was broke at the time, working as a package handler at FedEx. 

Finally, I sought out a mentor who could teach me how to get started. After meeting the right guy, I went on to do my first real estate deal in 30 days and made $9,000. I had never seen that kind of money in my life. This changed everything for me. From there I went on to do 2 more deals over the next 2 months. After 3 months, I quit my job and decided to go all-in, starting a real estate investing business. Now 6 months in, I’ve hired my first employee and our company is doing 10-20k in revenue a month. 

The pandemic has been hard on us all. I just hope my story can serve as inspiration to those who are struggling to get through these times. Don’t give up. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Absolutely not! I was living paycheck to paycheck, being worked to death full-time at FedEx, and still having to ask family for money to make ends meet. I knew nobody when I moved to Nashville. I had no connections here. I was on my own. Finding the time, energy, and motivation to figure out how to start something of my own was hard. I spent hours driving around town, cold calling people, and attending networking events before finding my first deal.
