Key Takeaways: 

"With my properties and all my investments, I've always aimed for more passive income; I try to be as hands-off as possible. I landlord a property close to me. But even still, it's a nice property. I try not to be there all that often. And then most of my properties are out of state. I'm pretty hands-off. I have property managers." - Ali Boone 

"Turnkeys are as hands-off as you can get, not completely hands-off, but it's much more passive." - Ali Boone  

"When you learn how to do the due diligence, then you almost don't have to worry about the red flags. But in all fairness, because most of us don't know how to do that good level of due diligence, one of the first things is really just talking to other people and see who they have good experiences with." - Ali Boone 

"I started a turnkey Facebook group for this exact reason, so more people can be talking, and turnkey providers aren't allowed in it. Because I want people to openly share what works, and what doesn't." - Ali Boone 

"One good tip on due diligence, have someone with more experience tell you the list of things to check on." - Ali Boone 

"You can have every how-to guide in the world handed to you, but if your mindset is off, there's no how-to guide in the world that's going to help you." - Ali Boone
