Real Estate Investing Profit Masters by Cory Boatright
Today’s guest is Engelo Rumora, who’s killing it on the scene with his amazing real estate investment strategy. He went from working on construction sites to owning and flipping his own properties on an international scale. Engelo may be Australian, but he’s working in Ohio right now flipping and selling his properties to international investors looking for rental properties here in the US. What’s his secret? Selling properties at market value. Sounds ridiculous, right? That’s why I brought him on today. Engelo breaks down his own cash-flow strategy so you can apply it to your own real estate investments. [youtube][/youtube] The magic of his full-service cash flow model is a combination of an in-house property management team, his own amazing clientele, and his totally ingenious and completely fearless approach to real estate investment. He isn’t afraid to take the risks, and he’s definitely not afraid to fully enjoy his experiences in this business. Engelo owes so much to his mentors because they gave him the foundation to become the “lifestyle-preneur” he is today. His advice is to surround yourself with the successful people you want to be like and learn from their model. You can apply their strategies to whatever your real estate niche is and finally reach your end goal.

Mark Ferguson is the REO agent extraordinaire with blue Diablo Lamborghini. We need more people with that kind of refreshing perspective! So I invited him on the show today to share what tweak to his strategy sent him over the top. His Broker Price Opinion (BPO for short) strategy paid off HUGE and all it took was a change in attitude and a little risk.  [youtube][/youtube] Using a BPO and working with the bank to find and sell listings are all a part of the strategy secrets Mark’s talking about today. He started with cold calls to the bank - something some of us are a little wary of - and followed through with hard work. Who knew working in realty was that easy? With a few phone calls and a lot of hustle, Mark has been able to grow from selling 15-20 houses per year to over 200 houses! His ability to balance the work of an REO agent and an investor also pays off in full. His REO listings generate more buyers and help him build his team, while his investment properties continue to earn him profits. [Tweet "The biggest thing [my mistakes] cost me was opportunity because I wasn’t looking for more deals. - Mark"] The best part of this podcast is Mark’s amazing advice. Mark says that the only way to stay focused is to zero in on only a few things in the beginning. Take the time to narrow your focus, build your team, and establish a strong foundation at first. Whether your business is in flipping homes, rental properties, or a quirky BPO listing strategy, the best way to succeed is to focus on the solid base of this business.

Kirby Atwell from iCandy Homes is on the podcast today! This guy got his feet wet in realty with a rental property in Hawaii when he was still in the military, and now he’s winning clients with bandit signs. Who’d have thought you could turn over million-dollar properties with old-school marketing like that? He’s sharing that strategy and few of his other profit-making secrets today, and you’re definitely going to learn how you can apply modern marketing to the tried-and-true methods of our business. [youtube][/youtube] Something as easy as SEO keywords can transform your signs into the pull you need. Kirby shares how one simple word like “fast” on a bandit sign totally skyrocketed his client list. He surveyed his clients and asked them directly why the sign was effective and it completely revamped his approach to marketing. Kirby’s ability to work with the psychology of this business is what really helps him nail these big sales. He’s all about talking, negotiating, and vetting. That’s right, vetting. Kirby will vet for anyone, including partners, clients, and contractors. He breaks down his vetting strategy for contractors as: Start a bidding process between 6-8 contractors Show each contractor the property at the same time - let them know they’re competing! Choose your top 3 or 4 bids Check out the top contractors’ previous and/or current projects to get a feel for how they work [Tweet "Learn how to negotiate with the seller, that’s where you're going to get grand slam deals. - Kirby"] This is just one of the many strategy nuggets Kirby is dropping on today’s episode.
