About Kenneth Mooney
100% of what I do is investment real estate. I am also a very active investor. You will find me flipping homes, renovating them to keep as rentals and even the occasional wholesale. I usually have anywhere between 3-5 renovations occurring at once. 95% of what I do is residential investments (1-4 units)
