About Me

Rob Drum

My name is Rob Drum. I’m a real estate agent and investor in Birmingham, Alabama. Here on my blog, I mostly write about real estate and finance. Previously, I spent six years trading stocks full time. I try to help other people learn from my mistakes and successes. I use the research skills I developed trading stocks to publish unique insights into our local real estate market. You can sign up for the free newsletter HERE.
