The two retire early links above are a bit slanted towards stock market investing. But their advice on your personal lifestyle would be very valuable, no matter how you choose to invest your retirement funds. So be aware of that bias as you read their information.

By far, the most important thing to do to retire early is to live on substantially less than you earn (50% or less would probably be ideal), and invest wisely. The exact investment is less important than making the investments regularly and carefully so that you preserve your capital.

Real estate is certainly one potential investment that could allow you to retire early. Just keep in mind that direct ownership of real estate can be a part time job in addition to an investment. It is not as hands-off as investing in the stock market. But that is really just a detail. If you find you enjoy real estate investing and can learn to do it successfully, it can definitely be a way to retire early.
