Wayne Hillier has been investing in real estate since 2013 in the Edmonton, Alberta Market. He is focusing on buy and hold and creative real estate strategies including Rent to Own and Agreement for Sales. He’s also the host of the Real Estate Investor Dad Podcast. 

In this episode, Wayne shares about where his primary focus is in real estate and how he earns profit from it and how he manages risk as well. He’ll let you in on how he, in his own words, has deals ‘fall in his lap’, not to mention how he leads a balanced work-life with his family despite being busy in real estate. 

Topics Covered: 

01:18 – What is an ‘agreement for sale’ all about and how does it exactly work 

02:13 – Why do sellers’ resort to ‘agreement for sale’

“The perfect BRRRR is getting all of your investment and all of your renovation money out. It dramatically increases your ROI so you can recycle your money continuously and repeat the process over and over and over again.” – Wayne Hillier 

It’s best practice to focus on one thing and not to follow the shiny ball syndrome or the shiny items in them.” – Wayne Hillier 

If someone says, ‘I’ve got this rental property’, ‘I can’t do anything with it’, or ‘I’ve got this house that needs a little bit of work’ – I proposed to them what I think would be the best outcome for them as well as for me. And we make it happen.” – Wayne Hillier

“After we’ve done the renovations to refinance and get our money back, this is nothing more than a complicated strategy for us, but we get them rented out. And then we refinance and rents and these kinds of places are pretty good. Anywhere between 7,500, 8,000 for the property. So about 10,000 for the three units. So, we’re still cash flowing after we’re done.” – Ming Lim

“I got to burn the boats and go make this thing work and took me from the time I got laid off, took me about six months to get my first fix and flip project. And from there we have just been able to duplicate the process one after the other. And that was five years ago when we did that first transaction. Since then, I haven’t had to look for another job, and we’ve been doing this full time.” – Jose Fernandez

Summary

James Knull started his Real Estate career in Edmonton Alberta and has built a portfolio of over 250 doors with single and multifamily buildings. He leads the Mogul Realty Group, one of the most respected realtor teams for investors in Western Canada. 

In this episode, James shares with us a handful of investment strategies that will help you navigate through this corona pandemic and steer you on the right course to making your real estate business afloat. He shares creative investment strategies that will save you moving expenses and at the same time creating strong cash flow.  

Topics Covered: 

01:21 – How is coronavirus quarantine affecting the real estate activity up in Edmonton 

03:01 – What opportunities could be coming up for real estate after coronavirus 

06:36 – Strategies that will help your real estate business during static and receding markets 

11:06 – His investment strategies 

13:00 – Why he likes multifamily strategy 

15:32 – Advantages of having multifamily housing 

Key Takeaways: 

“Everything else about the receding market is fairly commonplace for us investors. We’ve seen this pattern before, and so we know what opportunities are going to come because we’ve seen them before. We know how to capitalize on them, and the type of opportunities that typically come up are going to be distressed sellers.” – James Knull 

“We’re going to go through a period of change. We’re going to hit an equilibrium point at the bottom that’s going to become the new normal and then it’s time to start pursuing it as opportunities.” – James Knull 

A very popular strategy is BRRRR.  This strategy becomes so much more popular in a flat market because you can still add equity value to a property without sitting on your hands waiting for market appreciation.” – James Knull 

If you have a property type that you want to pursue, pick five that match your type, write an aggressive offer on all five and see which seller is willing to play ball in that marketplace. Because if you’re not so dead set on any one’s property, find the one that’s the best deal. That’s something we do with our clients all the time.” – James Knull 

As a buyer, you can start bringing more creative negotiating strategies to the table, a really low unsavory offer might make the other one look more acceptable by comparison. It is subtly steering the seller towards selecting the option that you wanted all along, which might include creative terms, which is what you want to happen.”- James Knull 

With single-family homes, the values tend to fluctuate a lot based on emotion, based on what people are willing to pay for a property whereas with multifamily the valuation is based on how profitable that property is.” – James Knull

“The babysitting is exactly what we’re doing, I mean, we’ve systemized it and it has a bit of professional polish to it now that I think about it over the years, but it’s true that we’re babysitting them. But these people need it. This is, I think, the absence of the rent-to-own strategy that you don’t go into this and, kind of, I think, is a fallacy about it that it’s a set it and forget it. Because everybody’s looking for a passive solution with real estate, but that’s not the case. Rent-to-own is really designed to help a home buyer overcome a certain challenge or a certain habitual behavior.” – Rachel Oliver

“As the investor, what you’re essentially benefiting from rent-to-own, I guess is a very equitable solution to try to help home buyers build up a bigger down payment because the more of a monthly down payment credit they give me, the higher my cashflow is over the course of the rent-to-own and the higher their down payment accumulation is. So, it’s really win-win.” – Rachel Oliver

  • Discover alternative investment strategies to do when flipping flops

Resources/Links

 

Summary

Jon Schoeller is a real estate investor who lives in Charleston, West Virginia. Together with his partners, he has been flipping over 100 houses in the last three years.

In this episode, Jon shares how he and his partners managed to hit it off really well as business partners despite being complete strangers to each other, how he brought value to the table and proved his authority that earned him the respect of his partners, and also shares their plan of action as flippers in this trying time of Corona crisis.

00:52 – What makes flipping a good strategy

01:37 – How he met his real estate partners and forged a strong business relationship from there on 

03:16 – Learning what others are doing and being successful, too

14:31 – What is his rent-to-own strategy

Key Takeaways:

“You can pay the mentors and all that stuff, but I know how I learn, I learn hands on and I need someone to show me how to do it. I can’t be, I can’t read it in a book. I do my fair share of reading, but I learn best if somebody shows me how to do it. I can read how to build a chair or you can show me how to build a chair if you show me how we build, check and repeat that step over and over again.” – Jon Schoeller 

“I think a lot of people when they want mentorship or they want something, they just want something and they just ask, you have to give value as well. And I get it. Maybe you don’t have money, maybe you don’t know anything about real estate, but you have something to give even if that’s just your time. And that’s what a lot of people don’t have.” – Jon Schoeller 

“You need to buy with the plan in mind that if things go south in the beginning, middle, or end of this flip, can I rent it and hold it and cover my mortgage or whoever owned this money until the market recovers. If the answer to that is no, you are essentially gambling.” – Jon Schoeller 

“The margin needs to increase with the amount of risk and that should always be the case.” – Jon Schoeller

I always have a business no matter what the size of the market, whether you’re in a megalopolis or you’re in a small town because we deal with human beings and human beings always have problems and they’ll get problems that they can solve by selling their house.” – Tom Zeeb 

“You’ve got to get a marketing machine moving and marketing to people that don’t currently have the property listed. There’s something wrong in their life that’s why they’re motivated to sell. And solving that problem in their life is more important to them than anything else about the house, including the price.” – Tom Zeeb 

“Wholesale flips, I don’t even get down to buying it. I focus on because this is what got me out of trouble and I’ve stayed with it because I guess I’ve learned my lessons. I focus on marketing to find great deals. I focused on negotiating to turn those loop warm leads into red hot deals and then I pop them under contract and instead of doing any of the buy and hold or the buy and rehab and resell, I sell my contract.” – Tom Zeeb

“I’ve actually bought a property, which is weird, it’s a fourplex, and I bought it for $8,008. It is possible, things are there. It’s just that a lot of people, they just feel everything is on MLS. Not really.” – Ankur Puri  

“To be honest, I don’t like to compete with people who have too much money but they have no brains what they want to do with the money so they end up spending too much and overbidding on something that is not worth.” – Ankur Puri 

“For me, for any deal that comes to me, I’m like, how can I make it happen? What is it that I can do where it can be beneficial not just for me, for my investor, even for the seller? So, I would always think from that perspective, but it’s not as I want to make money and I don’t care about other people. I want to make sure that yes, I want to make money but that’s the last thing. The first thing is, how can I help the seller? Second thing is, how can I help an investor and I’m going to still be able to make money?” – Ankur Puri

It gets you unlimited access to heavily discounted off market properties and motivated sellers. If I could do it all over again, that’s where I messed up. Starting a wholesaling business is the foundation. If you ain’t got that piece in, if you don’t know how to find deals, you’re dead in the water as a real estate investor.” – Chris Rood

15:19 – Making the most of the motivated seller script 

Key Takeaways: 

The biggest thing behind finding your own leads  is because I started like that where I just bought properties off the MLS and I am learning my lessons through this economy. You really see why that’s valuable. You don’t see the value until five or 10 years later when you go through an economic cycle and you understand why you need to make money when you buy and you make money when you buy by finding a really good deal where there’s a gap between the appraised value and what you’re purchasing it for.” – Paul Duncan 

“Facebook ads, it’s got that algorithm that learns. And so we can learn who’s becoming a lead, who’s becoming a motivated seller. And it can go search out more people like that. So it gets better and better. It gets consistent over time. And then it just becomes this machine that when you put $1 in, it eventually spits out $2 and you just keep putting it like a broken vending machine, that’s why it can be really valuable.” – Paul Duncan

15:36 – His teaching and training initiative for getting people involved in small apartment buildings 

Key Takeaways: 

One piece of advice I will only share with everyone no matter what sector or state you’re in. If you’re straddling between the job that pays bills today and in getting started in your real estate business, here’s my best advice. Do not leave the job that pays the bills to go on to something else until that’s something else is already producing enough income to pay your bills because otherwise, it’s going to be a very, very stressful and likely unpleasant journey.” – Lance Edwards 

“Certainly if your intent is to go from employed entrepreneur, make that income at what you’re doing, but don’t increase your lifestyle, increase your lifestyle after you’ve made the leap because if you put your energies fulltime on the entrepreneurial side, you’ll do 10 times what you can do on the employee side income-wise.” – Lance Edwards 

“I would say your main emphasis needs to be on your marketing. You’ve got to get your phone ringing. There’s the saying if your phone’s not ringing, you don’t have a business. You have a hobby. You’ve got to constantly focus on marketing to get leads coming in. That’s true of any sector of real estate with regards to apartment building.” – Lance Edwards 

“Too often it’s too tempting for people to get caught up in the emotion of it and they’ll overpay for a property and they’ll come up with some kind of rationalization of why that’s okay to do, but ultimately down the road that’s going to cost them. Stick to the math. There should be no emotion involved in this business.” – Lance Edwards 

“Identify what you’re really good at and focus on that. Those things that you don’t like doing is what you want to, as soon as you can delegate that to someone who loves doing that and get that off your desk because the energy release, the energy boost you will have will be so great. You can go focus on what you’re best at and you’ll see your productivity going up.” – Lance Edwards

“If there were a common theme and mistake is that people aren’t putting themselves in the right environment surrounding themselves with the right culture and in the right community. You need to be surrounded by likeminded individuals.” – Patrick Francey  

“Don’t try and do it on your own. Get the education, get all of that. But I still would say, don’t try to do it on your own, have some experience around you, have some advisors, some guidance, some people who are in it and then get the hell out of your own way.” – Patrick Francey 

“Did I make a lot of big mistakes? You bet. I was to do it again, I would’ve bought newer. Because my strategies were bought and hold. And if you’re doing buy and hold and you buy an older property and you hold it, then you have to then realize that in five, seven, 10 years, whatever it is, there’s going to be a renovation. You’re gonna have to put costs into it. And those properties just keep getting older.” – Patrick Francey

“We use the BURR strategy, we buy, renovate, we rent, we refinance. It’s a way of bootstrapping your rentals. You’re not sinking that much money into each rental you buy. It takes time. But it’s certainly a good way to grow your portfolio over time.” – Aaron Moore  

“I still have some of those outdoor signs and I like to call them outdoor science. I’ve done well with them over the years as my brand has gotten bigger.” – Aaron Moore

“If you’re going to be working directly with the seller you can tailor your solution, you can solve the problem, you can find out the problem. If there are middlemen then it’s really hard to find out the problems.” – Aaron Moore

Key Takeaways: 

“Common mistake for newbies is that the reality is that most of them don’t actually know what they’re selling. What they do is they show up at these networking events and they understand the importance of networking, but they don’t actually have a product.” – Rich Danby 

“Contracting was a tremendous failure for me and if I look back on the history of everything I’ve done, the thing that I least enjoy is dealing with contractors. I’m now going to stop it because I have gifts and I want to use them and I want to reach more people. And I can do that if I’m helping other people raise capital for their projects as opposed to being limited only by the amount I can manage on my own.” – Rich Danby 

“I think it has to do with confidence and repetition. If you are getting in front of a coach or a family member or anybody who you can practice on, that would be a great start. The other thing is to remember that if you truly are adding value, you have absolutely nothing to be nervous about because as you know, there are way more investors out there than there are deals. – Rich Danby 

“You are actually the real deal and if you have a great system, you have a great model, you have a great plan and you’ve really looked at the numbers and  it’s a great deal, then you should have all the confidence in the world to raise the capital and that confidence alone will be enough to get it done.” – Rich Danby  

“If you’re going to go out to any event and you’re going to invest your time into something, you should know in advance what you want to walk away with.” – Rich Danby

16:00 – One valuable advice about the importance of taking action 

Key Takeaways: 

” I’ve essentially fired myself from all of my projects when I started so that I had no other option but to succeed.” – Steven Pesavento 

“I think there’s something really valuable about burning the boats, about going all-in on something, about deciding that no matter what happens, I’m going to find a way. And once you get that kind of certainty in your head, things start happening. Really good things start happening.” – Steven Pesavento 

“I encourage investors who are new to the game or looking to transition into another space to come to the table with one of two things: value in the form of I’m going to give time, effort, energy, knowledge, and you’ve got to give way more of that. Two, you got to pay for it, get some mentors or coaches.” – Steven Pesavento 

” I encourage you, if you don’t have money, you just figure out a way that you can add more value than anyone else to a person. And I promise you that they’re going to want to take you under their wing.” – Steven Pesavento 

“The reason why mindset is so important is that I was able to take off and do 75 deals in my first year, 35 of them full-blown flips in two different States.” – Steven Pesavento 

“What I ended up taking away from this process is that when I talk to other investors, the biggest thing that holds them back in their mind. It’s their beliefs, the thoughts, and beliefs which ended up leading to the action that they take or don’t take in their life.” – Steven Pesavento 

“Investing is hard. It’s a pretty simple business, but it’s not always easy. The thing that differentiates the people who succeed versus the people that don’t is that they’ve got a really clear purpose so that no matter how many times they get knocked down, they’re going to get back up again and they’re thinking the right kind of thoughts that end up leading to them having some really clear focus and really clear action in their business.” – Steven Pesavento 

“Learning is worthless if you’re not going to actually apply it. ” – Steven Pesavento

15:04 – What does work-life balance and communication look like for them 

19:18 – Important tips to keep you on your track to success in real estate 

Key Takeaways:

“One big mistake newbies in JV do, a big one that we see is that we call it fire hosing people. You go on verbal diarrhea all over people when you want to talk to them about real estate. Don’t give them many things. You have to plant the seeds, but if you then take a fire hose and wash those seeds away, what good was it? You gotta gently allow people to immerse into the real estate world and their mindset into it, just don’t fire hose it.” – Tiffany Young 

“There are challenges, working together as a married couple. Living together, we’ve had to make a separation between work and regular life. The one thing that I would touch on is that we’ve always had our own departments. And what I mean by that is, it was my job to find the properties and analyze, Tiffany did the property management side of things. I didn’t tell her how to manage properties. She didn’t tell me how I should analyze them. I think that’s really helped when we weren’t stepping on each other’s toes all the time.” – Corey Young 

“One thing that we found, just to tie this all together is the more we are together, the better we actually get along. And so the fact that we work together regularly is actually a good thing. It’s when Tif’s away or I’m away and we’re not together is when we start to not communicate as well. And so being together actually is a big plus for us.” – Corey Young 

“The way that we found our partners was doing networking, meeting other people, starting conversations. And it comes down to sometimes just throwing those talks out there and sometimes just actually having, knowing what it is that you do and what you can bring to the table.” – Corey Young 

“The number one thing is, if somebody wants to learn, if somebody wants to doreal estate you can save yourself thousands of dollars of mistakes by learning from somebody that has done it. By educating yourself, learn, learn, learn. There are so many resources out there that are free.” – Corey Young

13:25 – What mistakes investors usually commit when closing deals  

16:16 – What is the secret to success in real estate

Key Takeaways: 

“The biggest mistake I find is not that there’s too much focus on marketing, but not enough on actually converting the leads that you’re producing into deals.” – John Martinez 

“Don’t lead with the offer. Hold off until the very end of the conversation to make your offer. Make sure you focus a front end conversation on what actually caused them to reach out, what they’re dealing with and talk as much as possible about their situation. In so doing, you’re going to learn exactly what they need and, what they need to hear and what concerns they have. Then, you learn how to present your offer. And that alone is going to increase conversion rates.” – John Martinez 

“Right up front you just want to set proper expectations because people usually come into these situations, any sales situation, especially this because there’s a lot of unknowns around it. People aren’t really familiar with people who buy houses cash. So just setting proper expectations and letting people know that a yes or no is okay. That right there will relieve a lot of pressure.” – John Martinez 

“Follow-up is important, but we want a follow-up to be effective and we want to make sure that we’re only following up with deals where we’ve got a chance of closing them. We don’t want to just follow up on deals for the sake of following up. We also don’t want to follow up deals when we could have closed it right there.” – John Martinez 

“Basically, when you push too hard, especially in a complex deal situation like real estate, the more times you try to close, the harder you push, the less likely you are to get a deal. Instead of people relieving pressure, they’re creating pressure.” – John Martinez

Key Takeaways:

“I love this book, and I love him because he is such a game changer. Like that book has changed and transformed people’s minds. It won’t teach you how to do real estate, but it will turn that two-millimeter change in your mind.  And all of a sudden, your whole view towards finances is just totally shifted. And he gave us the idea that there’s another way to do this.” – Monika Jazyk 

 “That was the game-changer. But after that point, we didn’t have any support, so we figured out how to do it. And that led to a lot of mistakes as well because we didn’t have anyone to show us, guide us, and give support. We had to learn as we went a lot.” – Monika Jazyk 

“Even though it feels like you’re successful because you’re so transactional, everyone loves what you’re doing. You’re doing all these great deals and so much money is coming in.  It’s inevitable also to make mistakes, and the mistakes proved to be almost more costly than success.” – Monika Jazyk 

“We love what real estate represents. You think it’s the most secure investment out there. So, I do see value in all of these opportunities.  But I see success when people take the time to focus, and they look past the spokes, the mirrors, and they do it the real way.” – Monika Jazyk  

“Nothing really should stop. If you believe in something, you should go for it.” – Monika Jazyk

“Definitely what happens is we make decisions based on where we are. And you need to determine exactly where you’re going. Start with the end in mind and establish what does that looks like for you and operate as if you already have that today.” – Alfonso Cuadra 

“The goal for a lot of people is to be comfortable. That’s your biggest mistake right there. Because you can’t grow if you don’t take risks. And if you can’t grow, you’re not going to be fulfilled.” – Alfonso Cuadra 

“Your biggest obstacle will always be you. Plain and simple.” – Alfonso Cuadra 

“Our parents told us, don’t rent, buy, because you’re making the landlord rich. The message should have been, don’t rent, become the landlord.” – Alfonso Cuadra 

“The biggest mistake that people make that I see from my perspective is they don’t promote enough. You can have the best business in the world, the best property, but if people don’t know that you’re doing it, it’s useless. People do business with people they know.” – Alfonso Cuadra 

“Find a niche and become an expert at that niche Get out there and start talking, start sharing, start teaching, start giving. As a result, you will attract people into your business.” – Alfonso Cuadra 

“You can only go so far with your own money, with your own time, with your own credit. You do need other people’s money, other people’s credit, other people’s time. And the only way to get that quickly is to start becoming an expert now.” – Alfonso Cuadra 

“I did have a problem speaking in English in public. The message is what matters and how people feel about your message and what they can do about what you’re saying. And so once I got out of my own head, I was able to communicate, engage with people and actually be of service to them.” – Alfonso Cuadra

Summary

Mark Kenney is a seasoned real estate investor, coach, two-time best-selling author and founder of Think Multifamily. Mark started his Apartment Investing career over 20 years ago as a side hustle while working 70-80 hour work per week in the corporate world. He has purchased over 5,000 units in just the past few years in five different states. 

In this episode of The Property Profits Real Estate Podcast, Mark shares his journey of investing in real estate early on in his life and having to quit his day job and replace his income in the quickest time possible. Learn the credibility shortcut to doing REALLY big deals and discover the reason why Mark things that multifamily real estate is the quickest way to build wealth.

Topics Covered:

01:01 – What led him to real estate investing 

03:34 – The biggest challenge in real estate 

05:53 – What one struggle people have when they first get started  

06:59 – How to raise capital

13:45 – What mistakes do newbies commit when investing in multi-family properties

Key Takeaways:

“No doubt, everyone almost without exception, has fear of raising capital. I was petrified of doing it. I never asked my dad for money, for anything, never asked anyone else for money. It was hard. And that’s kind of the area where people do struggle. They’re like, I don’t want to ask people, I’m going to get rejected. ” – Mark Kenney 

“With raising capital, there’s no question in my mind, the easiest way to try to raise capital is to partner with somebody that has a deal already that you know, like, trust and you’re coming in and they have a track record. – Mark Kenney 

“I think brokers would attest to this that yeah, you need something of value you can bring.” – Mark Kenney 

“I tell people if you have an opportunity to screw somebody. Don’t do it because it’s a small world. And we just have a good reputation with sellers and brokers that we do what we say we’re going to do that are fair for people, reasonable, and we close the deals.” – Mark Kenney 

“The learning process is, I would say to learn how to analyze things like that, you can do it pretty quickly. There are no substitutes for doing the deal. Everyone goes through a deal. That’s way more than I thought it was going to be, but it just gets easier as you do more.” – Mark Kenney

(45 min + Q&A): Click Here
What you’ll learn in just 17 minutes from today’s episode:
  • Marketing strategies to implement to keep you getting good deals
  • Finding techniques in how to deal with getting prospects
  • Learn how an owner decided to sell his house off-market to Michael at a discount rather than having it listed

 

Summary

Michael Quarles started as a Real Estate Entrepreneur when he was an adult teenager, buying an R2 lot and building a duplex. He didn’t know what the heck he was doing; all he knew was that he wanted to. He had an “S” on his chest mentality, which helped push him through the many unknown battles of real estate. Since that day, he has been involved with hundreds and hundreds of real estate deals. In 1991 he obtained his general building contractors license, building over 70 single-family homes and multifamily units from the ground up.

Michael is a ‘marketing machine’ for finding great deals. After doing hundreds of deals on purpose and through marketing systemization, several people asked him how he did so many deals so quickly… His answer then remains the same as it is now: it was a matter of marketing, understanding negotiation and respecting systems. Subsequently, he began helping new and seasoned investors jumpstart their marketing and their careers through a variety of family businesses that he is proud of today.

In today’s episode, Michael will share with us his decades-long experience in real estate, the techniques, and marketing strategies he employs to find good deals. Not to mention, he will also tell us what works and what doesn’t. With expertise that has been seasoned by decades of dabbling into real estate, expect nothing but value from Michael.

Topics Covered:

01:03 – His journey into the real estate world

02:56 – Where does he focus as an investor

04:21 – Why do end buyers buy from him and not from another wholesaler

06:47 – How he came about marketing whilst finding deals

07:50 – How different was doing real estate then versus now

10:54 – What other marketing strategies does he do other than direct mails which are also effective

14:23 – Why a seller allows him to buy a house at a discount even if they could sell it on a multiple listing service

17:39 – Giving us his reality of generating prospects

Key Takeaways:

“I started laying out all the things I did to find the opportunity at hand cause opportunities, hard to do or hard to find, you just have to be consistent and know what you’re doing and then keep doing it and systemize yourself so you can do it on purpose.” – Michael Quarles

“We know that 80% of our deals come from follow up. I mean we’re kidding ourselves If we think that all of our deals are going to come from the first inbound phone call. It’s not how our gangs play. It’s a follow-up. I mean I didn’t marry my wife the first time I met her. I took her out a couple more times and that’s how society is run. We have to get used to something before we buy it or sell it or sell our house to it.” – Michael Quarles

“Direct mail works well for me, but it’s not the only thing I would suggest someone do. I think we would be kidding ourselves if we put all of our eggs in one basket because the moment that basket breaks all of our egg spills.” – Michael Quarles

“The idea is you have to have an abundance. Most investors with a problem that they live through is they don’t have an abundance or they start sharpening their pencils and their deals get really skinny. Well, if they had 15 opportunities a day, take the best one of those 15 and do that deal.” – Michael Quarles

“When you get it to the point where you remove yourself from being emotional, you can get better deals done.” – Michael Quarles

“If you guys want to have an on-purpose business, you have to start somewhere. You have to start with marketing.” – Michael Quarles

  • Know the challenges that Steve faced in running their business and what he did
    to solve them.
  • Discover why Steve says it is absolutely vital to have clear goals.
  • What are the two things you need to do to find out what your real goals are?

 

Summary

Steve Rozenberg is an airline pilot, author, and investor. He created and built a property management company and merged it with Mynd Property Management in 2019. He currently holds the position of Vice President Investor Education, which is focused on educating investors on goal-setting and strategies.

Years ago, Steve thought he was ‘set’ and had the safest and most secure job as an airline pilot. And then, the 911 tragedy happened, which shocked the world and affected many lives. Steve was not an exception and he lost his job.

That’s when he realized he needed to be in charge of his destiny and right there he promised himself that he wouldn’t let anything to control his finances and future. That’s when Steve shifted to real estate investing and did everything to learn the industry. But it was not an easy feat, and he made mistakes and lost money along the way. Now he is an accomplished real estate investor, owning dozens of real properties, apartment complexes, and has also flipped and wholesaled hundreds of properties in Texas.

Get to know Steve and learn from his experiences, and profit from some golden nuggets of wisdom in today’s episode.

Topics Covered:

01:17 – Steve narrates how the 911 tragedy ended his job as an airline pilot 

03:19 – Turning to real estate investing after realizing that he needs to be in control of his finances and future

03:52 – How he studied and started in real estate

04:49 – What type of real estate he is currently focusing on

12:01 – Two things to do to find out what your “why” is

15:34 – Aligning your goals with your spouse

17:58 – How to connect with Steve

Key Takeaways:

“I love flying. I would never give it up. I still fly for an airline, and I love it.  But I also realize that I cannot let someone else or something else be in charge of my destiny, and not be in control of my own future and my finances just because I’m employed by someone.  It doesn’t mean that they’re responsible for taking care of me, which is a different way of thinking, then I grew up.” Steve Rozenberg

 “I’ve been very, very fortunate.  And I believe that the biggest reason is because I’ve learned that this is a business. And I’ve learned the hard way by getting taken advantage of, lost a lot of money, all those things. But I don’t think if I had not done that and learned those valuable lessons, I don’t think I would be here today.” Steve Rozenberg

“I think it’s more important to ask yourself the “why” and nobody really takes the time to ask themselves.”Steve Rozenberg

“The great thing about real estate is there are no rules. You can flip, you can wholesale syndicate, you can, you could do whatever you want. That’s a great thing. The bad thing is there are no rules. You can flip, you can wholesale, you can do whatever you want. There are too many choices.”Steve Rozenberg

“The challenges when they get into real estate, is they’re waiting for someone to give them that advice. They’re waiting for that one word or phrase of advice. And I tell people that don’t exist. You being successful is made up of a lot of good decisions, not one great decision. So, there’s not one great thing that you’re going to do today that’s going to get you across the goal line. It’s a matter of doing things good consistently, and it’s not perfection.  It’s persistence.”Steve Rozenberg

“People get so focused to shoot holes in theories. Everybody has their moon.  Everybody has their end destination. But you’ve got to make sure that you can clearly identify it.”Steve Rozenberg

What you’ll learn in just 17 minutes from today’s episode:
  • What a Vendor Take-Back Mortgage is all about and how to create one 
  • The idea behind vendor take-back financing and the benefits sellers can get from it 
  • Tips about the ins and outs of vendor take-backs

 

Summary

Adam Martin is Vice President of Sales for Control Your Property, real estate investor, and life-long entrepreneur. While obtaining his Honors degree in International Business Management, Adam was afforded the opportunity to travel Canada doing sales in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. He has been to over 17 countries, giving him the unique world view needed to perform in sales and bring value to his customers. Adam has also co-authored several courses and articles on real estate investing, and began investing at the age of 24 with one of the most creative deals in the business. 

In this episode, Adam will show us the first steps to creating Vendor Take-Back Mortgages for your real estate deals, so if you want to learn more about a great strategy to get you started if you don’t have much capital, listen to this short and sweet interview.  Check it out today 🙂

Topics Covered:

01:12 – How early on in life did he start investing in real estate and what got him into that

02:17 – The first steps anyone should do when diving into real estate

05:54 – What is vendor take-back financing

07:51 – How is vendor take-back financing presented to the seller and what are the benefits to them

13:10 – What are the important things to consider when talking about vendor take-backs?

15:06 – Where to find sellers that have free and clear ownership of their properties

Key Takeaways:

“This is absolutely the step that catapulted me forward in my real estate investment. One of the first things I did was I went surrounded myself with real estate investors. I went on a limo tour where we tour private off-market deals. I went on to one of those with absolutely no resources, no means to buy anything. But I went there for networking, to meet some great people. I ended up meeting my mentor there.” – Adam Martin

“Vendor takeback mortgage really does act and behave just like the bank would. There’s just often a lot of pros that you won’t find at the bank. For example, he wasn’t worried about my creditworthiness. He wasn’t worried about, my income or my ability to prove my income. And he wasn’t worried about my utilization on credit in any of those factors that would certainly come into play if we were talking to an institutional financer.” – Adam Martin

“So a big advantage, if anybody’s ever looked at an amortization schedule, you probably realize that at the beginning of the loan, the vast majority of your pay or a good chunk of your payment is going towards interest. And a smaller portion is going towards the principal. So as a seller, he’s benefiting from that. So he’s actually probably making much better than 3% on the money if you look at that timeframe. Cause that’s the trick to the whole amortization thing.” – Adam Martin

“Regardless of where you’re at in your journey, build that financial fortress of solitude.” – Matt McKeever

A lot of real estate investors, I find, discount the value of social media and I think they’re doing themselves a great disservice.” – Matt McKeever

“At the time I was reading the book, essentially it was saying something to the effect of talk to your audience in the language they want to be spoken to. And it immediately clicked for me.Tthe reason people love real estate is it’s so visual. You can feel it, you can smell it, you can touch it. So immediately I was like, Oh, YouTube is the perfect medium for real estate investing.” – Matt McKeever

“Like everyone’s an adult and needs to decide exactly on which side of the wider black line they want to be or if they want to be somewhere in the gray.

“One thing I learned being in a startup is there’s less clarity around roles.” – Scott Zandbergen

“ In the real estate world, there is a lot of testing and learning. I’m always using a learning mindset to try different approaches, different strategies, or ways that write ads to attract tenants to my properties.  I’m always tweaking, and I’m always trying different process tweaks, different ways to screen my funnel when people are coming in. I learned that in a startup for sure.” – Scott Zandbergen

“I’m not worried too much about having to compete with fellow investors because, as I keep finding, there’s a real lack of good quality rental units in that market. So, I think as long as we’re delivering the right product, we are always finding good tenants that want to pay the prices that we’re asking.” – Scott Zandbergen

“You have to have a strong level of trust with who you’re working with. And because I’ve done several now where they’ve been home runs, I feel a lot more confident that going forward, I don’t stress over it maybe as much as I did the first few that I did.” – Scott Zandbergen

“And so my advice to people, like I mentor some people informally and younger folks on this now, and I always say, just do it.  Take that first step because I promise you, the world will not set on fire if you try this. It’s not super easy, but it’s not rocket science either.” – Scott Zandbergen

Key Takeaways:

“Once I understood the vehicle, from my perspective, I was thinking, the return profile is somewhat similar. I get to be diversified across multiple different asset classes across the country, and I get to depend on someone else’s time, energy, and expertise. I’m going to do this a lot. And that’s really how I built my business.” – Hunter Thompson

“A syndication is pulling your money together with some other investors and getting into a much bigger deal than you probably could. – Hunter Thompson

“This is not an easy job. Anyone that thinks that it’s easy to raise capital hasn’t raised a lot of capital. You can fall on your face pretty hard.  If you do it right, it can be the most lucrative, the most sought after, the most consistently needed skill in the entire real estate business. If you have the ability to consistently write seven-figure checks or eight-figure checks, you will always have a place in the commercial real estate world. It’s unbelievable, and I think people are starting to get wind of that now.” – Hunter Thompson

“Always have a really good attorney, especially if we’re going to put something on paper like write a book. It has to be an iron-clad.” – Hunter Thompson

“There’s some internal resistance on our minds. It’s fear. And the reason why we’re afraid is because we don’t have the data. We don’t have the information. We don’t know what to say and how to say it.” – Agostino Pintus

“For many people who are just starting out, first learn the lingo. Learn the language of the business. Second is build the team that goes along with it because you’re not going to do all this yourself.” – Agostino Pintus

“Learn how to sell. Because this is a sales business. And you have to get in front of people to tell them about the benefits. Tell them what it means to them.” – Agostino Pintus

“It’s not about you. No one cares about your needs. It’s about them. How can you help me? That’s what people want to know. If you go and say, I need this, and I need that. No one cares, right? No one cares about what you need.” – Agostino Pintus

“How do you protect that cash? That’s their problem. You have the solution. Your solution is to invest it into a cash-flowing asset real estate and get all the tax benefits that go along with it.” – Agostino Pintus

  • What is property management and what are the lucrative side businesses that can go with it
  • Find about what Tony’s “Doorpreneur” book is all about
  • Find out how to go about property management The Doorpreneur way

 

Resources/Links

Summary

Tony LeBlanc is an entrepreneur who has started over 10 successful businesses. Growing up inside the property management industry watching his mother manage the building in which he was raised, he learned the business from the inside out.

He now manages one of the largest property management companies on Canada’s East Coast – a business he started from scratch. His extraordinary success proves that property management can be the foundation of a network of service brands that support the properties within the management portfolio. Tony’s experience and expertise are now helping many other property management professionals take their business to a whole new level.

In this episode of Property Profits Podcast, learn how Tony branched out of his original property management business and added on other complimentary businesses, some of which very quickly surpassed the revenue from his management company.

Topics Covered:

01:08 – His career background before real estate and what strategy is he focusing on

05:36 – What is property management and how to go about it

08:10 – The difference between typical property management and the Doorpreneur way of doing it

11:16 – The lucrative side business of getting into property management

14:01 –  Real estate sales as one of the business opportunities you can look out for

15:54 – What are the components of the property management business

17:51 – How to go about the whole strategy of property management and branching out to other opportunities

Key Takeaways:

“There’s gotta be scale involved. I think somewhere is probably around the 300 to 500 unit door count. It starts to make sense because without getting that type of traction you gotta get an X enough experience under your belt on the management side. And the whole foundation of this is the management company. Your management experience has to be second to none for your owners and for your tenants. Get that right first. Once you have the confidence level that you can now start branching out into other opportunities then you can do so.” – Tony LeBlanc

“And the biggest beauty about this, the whole thing, why it’s easy for us to spin off these companies is because we have the infrastructure. You can only get that infrastructure once you’re a certain size. We have a full-time CA on staff. I’ve got all my maintenance guys, my cleaning staff, my property managers, my resident managers. I have a team. I can reuse them for the different things that I want to be.” – Tony LeBlanc

  • Learn the advantages of investing in multi-family properties
  • Discover the rules and regulations governing tenants and property owners in Quebec

 

Summary

Jean-Philippe Claude is a very successful multi-family real estate investor based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Originally an engineer by training, Jean-Philippe got hooked on real estate when he bought his first triplex in 2011. After taking a variety of training programs, he bought more than 150 apartments in just four years.

Jean-Philippe is now a full-time real estate investor, and one of the directors of Quebec’s largest real estate investment clubs. It’s another jam-packed and fast-paced episode today as I feature Jean-Philippe Claude and his journey from engineering to real estate investing. Jean-Philippe’s remarkable portfolio has grown immensely, that he attributed his success in raising capital from his JV partners.

How did he do it? And after he was done getting the deal up and running, how does he also manage his properties? What are the pro’s and con’s to investing in Quebec vs. other areas of Canada? Tune in and find the answers in his story.

Topics Covered:

01:23 – Jean-Philippe tells how he shifted from a mechanical engineer to a real estate investor who initially bought a triplex and converted it into a fourplex 

03:18 – His current portfolio owning 180 apartments in five years

17:59 – Where to get more details about Jean-Philippe

19:11 – Final advice in real estate investing

Key Takeaways:

“The money is in optimizing.  It isn’t in buying. Find a deal that is optimizing. And then when it’s optimizing, when you squeeze the juice out of the property, and you did everything you could to increase your net revenue, then you give it to somebody else. You accept the fact that the property is not going to be managed as well as you would.” Jean-Philippe Claude

“Knowledge is the first thing first.  After that, if they want to jump into a multifamily, they need to know their sectors.” Jean-Philippe Claude

“I think the biggest mistake from a starting point is to think big and thinking that you’re not going to miss a deal because you’re looking big. But actually, that’s exactly the opposite. You’re not going to be in the market, you’re not going to know if you do renovate that apartment, how much it’s going to be worth, and you’re not going to be able to price your building correctly.” Jean-Philippe Claude 

“Get to know your sector. Take action. Sometimes people are falling classes, reading a book, watching podcasts, and that’s pretty good. That’s awesome. Watching but take action afterward. That’s where that happens. I called taking action, like making a promise to purchase shots to the net. I mean, if you don’t shoot to the net, there’s a 100% chance that you’re not going to succeed.”Jean-Philippe Claude

In this episode of Property Profits Real Estate Podcast, Trevor shares the 5 things that prevent newbie investors in the real estate world from pulling the trigger and getting going. With most of us having poor time management, this is an opportune time to listen to his discussion about understanding the productivity pyramid and the tremendous help it provides us about where to focus most of our time and effort to achieve the highest value.

Topics Covered:

00:44 – How he got started in real estate and the type of real estate he was and  is into

Key Takeaways:

“We all have great ideas, great aspirations, but we get stuck between that three-pound mass between our ears, called the brain that holds us back from going out there and doing what we want to do.” – Trevor McGregor 

“Get crystal clear on what you want, why you want it now, what cities, what markets, what neighborhoods, what your potential spend is, how much you want to put into rehab property, do some cap ex work and then ultimately decide, are you going to flip it or are you going to hold it and rent it? – Trevor McGregor

“Get clear on what your strengths are. Maybe find people that support some of the weaknesses or the opportunities to improve, as I call them. And from that place, go out there and create that plan to make it a reality.” – Trevor McGregor 

“We need to literally establish what we call the professional pillars that can help you go further faster. Because if you’re trying to do every single one of those things on your own, you’re fooling yourself.” – Trevor McGregor

“Do you really know where your time is going, what you’re doing with that time, what you should be doing with that time versus maybe outsourcing some of it. You know, if you’re not really good with some of that stuff, maybe you’d get a VA and you’ve got a personal assistant.” – Trevor McGregor

“Begin your marketing machine. Earlier, I was cheap on my marketing side. I looked at marketing as an expense as opposed to an investment, and now I know that it’s not. That’s the one thing I can’t spend money too much money on is the marketing that’s efficient.” – Brad Smotherman

“Fill your mind with positive material, whether that’s books, podcasts, generally inspirational movies.  It even came to the point that I would fast from any traditional music.

What you’ll learn in just 17 minutes from today’s episode:
  • Investing strategies that can provide passive income and at the same time allow you to leave your day job
  • Strategic steps to get you started the right way in real estate
  • Mistakes to avoid as a ‘newbie’ real estate investor

 

Summary

Lane Kawaoka is a civil engineer who invests passively in Real Estate from Honolulu, Hawaii. He used to be in a big private company as a construction engineer but after some saving and investing in real estate, he found happiness and balance at a lower paying job.

After Lane witnessed first-hand how his own parents got screwed with their 401K and with the stock market, it’s become his mission to get everyone out of what he believes is the corrupt Wall Street roller coaster style of investing, and into main street investments with safer, higher returns that benefit the middle class of North America.

Today on the Property Profits Real Estate Podcast, Lane shares his wisdom on matters relating to real estate investment and portfolio expansion. 

Topics Covered:

01:24 –  Getting started in real estate at a young age while in university

02:43 – Different strategies he is dabbling into at the moment

03:39 – On joint venturing with other real estate investors

04:30 – What would he have done early on in his real estate investment had he known everything he has known now

05:20 – How does it look like for him doing syndication deals himself and bringing investors on board

12:46 – What leveraged assets you need to create when starting out 

13:35 – As a newbie and completely know nothing about the whole process of doing things, how can you add value to the more experienced person

Key Takeaways:

“I think it goes to show that real estate used to be a bunch of people in white backdrops, new shirts, brown shoes, and navy pants that people don’t want that today. Especially, some of the younger folks, they want authenticity. They want to see some mistakes. I went into deals, my first passive investment I lost like 30, 40 grand cause I invested with a shyster. But lesson learned. People want to see that stuff.” – Lane Kawaoka

“ A lot of times these guys, they’ll either give up and never get started because they don’t get that extra push. Figure out what it is and give freely without any quid pro quo kind of assumption that you’re going to get something in return. Go ahead and do it and do it for multiple people. And you’ll find that a good majority of them will likely reciprocate. And then at that point, you know you have the data to know who you want to interact with in the future. Those people who reciprocate, they’re cool, you know, continue to nurture those relationships.” – Lane Kawaoka

Summary

Jacob Ayers is a young professional real estate investor, and host of the Real Estate Way to Wealth and Freedom – a top-rated business podcast. Jacob bought his first rental property at the age of 25. He continues to build his portfolio through buying and holding multi-family properties.

Jacob was an Engineering graduate, and this career gave him a comfortable life, but he lacked fulfillment in it. He wanted to prove that he was capable of better things.

Key Takeaways:

“The reasons that buy and hold stuck and resonated with me are because you can create wealth over the long-term, and generate passive income in the near term. And those two things combined are a really powerful thing to allow you to create that generational wealth and build financial freedom in the near term.  It allows you to achieve that point that I call financial freedom, and allowing you to essentially be able to retire from your day job, which was a big point in my life.” – Jacob Ayers

“Always have that vision and that skill in the back of your mind to get big and do things bigger and quicker.” – Jacob Ayers
