It is easy to call someone a Real Estate mogul when the market is in your favor but not in Anthony Lolli's case.

One of the most controversial and inspiring things you will hear in this interview is how the agents in Rapid Realty (Anthony's Real Estate Franchise) were so committed to the brand and what it stood for they began to tattoo the name of the brand on their bodies. Yes, permanent tattoos! Anthony Lolli, is an American favorite story.
