Mark Podolsky ventured out of his native Midwest and took a chance on a new landscape he loved: Scottsdale, Arizona. His new investment banking job paid him well, but he hated everything else about it. In fact, Mark says, “It was hurting my soul.” So, now that he knew what he didn’t want, what would he do next? Now he is known as the Land Geek, and is widely considered the foremost authority on buying and selling raw, undeveloped land within the United States. Actively investing in real estate and raw land since 2001, he has completed over 5,000 unique transactions.
