Real Estate Investing Profit Masters by Cory Boatright
My guest today – Frank Cava – is easily one of my favorite people. We met awhile back as part of our mastermind group, and we’ve been swapping secrets ever since. I’m excited to have him on the show today because his particular real estate investment strategy is killing it in three different markets right now: rentals, fix-and-flips, and wholesale. How can one guy do so much? Not only is he one of the smartest guys I know (seriously, listen to him break down the numbers), he’s also one of the best guys to work with and for. [youtube][/youtube] Frank says he owes his success to the fact that he runs his business like a real business and not like a hobby. He’s got a real office and a real staff - a team of 9 that he’s hired, trained, and still manages, and he talks today about what it’s like to take the time to build a team like that. Firstly, you have to be honest about what you know and what you don’t know. Only then will you be able to find the right people to fill in the gaps of your investment strategy. You’ve also got to know when to give up control so you can put new controls in place. His amazing anecdotes about his team and the way they work together will really get you thinking about how to best hire your staff. [Tweet "I really realized the most important thing in this business is lead generation. - Frank"] On top of his management skills, Frank’s also got a keen and clear real estate investment strategy – he puts out more mailers than anyone else! No one sends more snail mail than this guy, and he’s generating the right leads and getting in touch with the right people who are willing and able to sell their properties. Frank’s consistent presence in the market makes his name more recognizable than anyone else out there, and his amazing flipping team and their unbelievably fair wholesale and rental prices keep his brand and reputation trustworthy and reliable across his niche. The marketing tips he shares on this episode will really change the way you look at lead generation.
