The guest I have on today isn’t just a real estate investor. She likes to call herself a real estate matchmaker. Whitney Nicely is making deals in Tennessee that are out of this world. She’s got confidence, enthusiasm, and enough Southern charm to make her real estate investment strategy really shine. She even uses pink ‘I Buy Houses’ signs to attract buyers! But that’s not the only thing she’s got going on. On today’s episode of Real Estate Profit Masters, Whitney Nicely breaks down her leasing option investment strategy and shares her tricks for getting to the top of this business in just three years.

Whitney calls herself a matchmaker because she looks at her leasing options like a marriage. Her real estate investment strategy succeeds because she really builds relationships with the people she works with. She knows that a leasing contract means working together for 3, 5, even 10 years, and the kinder and more honest you are with your clients the more likely they are to continue working with you. These relationships also pay off when you want to renegotiate. Whitney’s trick for making the most for her money is renegotiating with the sellers. She shares the technique she uses with sellers to get her in, out, and done, which gives her more time to really focus on her properties and tenants.

A big thing Whitney and I discuss in today’s episode is control in our business. Right now, Whitney is a one-woman show and she’s really killing it. But being able to let go or walk away from pet projects or menial tasks is a huge part of being an entrepreneur. Part of your real estate investment strategy should be taking yourself out of the equation. You want to free up your time to focus on the things that really matter, and it’s even better if you can work remotely! Whitney has properties throughout Tennessee and Georgia, and she’s looking into Florida now, so tune in and hear how – in the words of Ron LeGrand – you can do less and make more!

Today’s episode is a little bit different because I’m talking to Larry Higgins, a skip tracing genius. He’s got his own company – Skip Genie – where his team helps other real estate agents do all of their skip tracing.

For those of you who don’t know, skip tracing is a way to find sellers. These sellers are usually hard to find because their properties are what Larry calls “distressed”. These are vacant properties, tax delinquent properties, or properties where owners are deceased and the estate is looking to sell. If you can skip trace correctly and connect with these unique sellers, you can catch some amazing deals.

You’re going to be surprised at Larry’s investing profit strategy. He absolutely hates direct mailers (even though his company deals with a lot of mailers!), but his unique perspective really gives him up a leg-up in this industry. He can connect real estate agents like you with skip trace sellers looking to sell ASAP. His secret is automation. Your mailers combined with his searching techniques could really unlock a lot of possible deals for you by just connecting you with sellers you would have never known about otherwise. So listen to the podcast and hear what Larry has to say! He’s going to blow your mind with his skip tracing strategies.

Today’s episode is huge. Nathan Brooks is like a celebrity for me. He’s the CEO of his own company Bridge Turnkey Investments, and he’s basically automated his excellent leadership into a successful investment strategy. He started out as a musician and wanted to be a rock star, but how he got into real estate investing is really inspiring.

You’re going to hear how he transformed his company by focusing on the excellence of his team. Nathan calls it a “renaissance”, and in reality that’s exactly what it is. He overhauled his entire business model, all the way down to the specific tasks of his each of his employees. He learned what it truly means to manage and lead a team. Nathan breaks down all of the individual processes he put in place in order for his turnkey investment strategy to be as successful as it is.

 

Nathan has a trick for focusing on just one thing. I know that seems impossible when you have 45 to 50 things to do every day, but this meditative technique for being present in the moment is truly valuable. If you’re able to check in with yourself every day and be present in the specific moments that means the most, then you are truly a success story. Focus on just one thing and you can really develop the real estate investment strategy you envision for yourself.
