Did you know the blue spruce is my favorite tree? Conveniently, Adam Adams, multifamily real estate investment wizard, calls his business The Real Blue Spruce, and he’s truly one of my favorite guests I’ve brought on this podcast. He’s on track to build a multifamily empire in Denver, and the nuggets of wisdom he shares today are really going to blow your mind.
Adam was introduced to real estate early by his stepdad. But it wasn’t until he read Kiyosaki’s book that his whole mindset finally shifted. He started to think like an investor instead of an employee and it really transformed his whole strategy. And his unique real estate investment strategy is what we’re talking about today.
Adam Adams approaches real estate very differently than some of us. He’s not on the phone calling brokers every day. He’s not putting out signs or sending out text messages. Adam and his crew with The Blue Spruce Group are using social media to connect with investors and brokers all over Colorado. In fact, it’s podcasting that actually got Adam to the place he is today.
It just so happens that these podcasts connect him with brokers who want to make deals with a guy who clearly knows what he’s talking about. Putting yourself out there and connecting with people just like you can really multiply the amount of clients you work with and properties you sell.
We close out today’s episode with Adam’s top three pieces of advice for new investors. Don’t be afraid to get started, don’t be afraid to think big, and always, always be consistent. These are really simple but so powerful it’d be a shame if you didn’t incorporate them and the rest of Adam’s advice today into your own real estate investing strategy.

I’ve got the man Josh Weidman on the show today. He’s a turnkey investor who’s working the real estate scene up in Philadelphia. Josh got his start in wholesaling, but what he’s really passionate about right now is turnkey investments. He knows to buy when the market is ripe, and he’s sharing tips on how to recognize market patterns in the neighborhoods around you so you can cash in at the perfect time.
Finding that sweet spot in your real estate investment strategy relies on your ability to think long-term. Turnkey investments aren’t your typical fix-and-flip, and you’re going to be working with this property for quite a while. Josh’s secret to success is looking past the income he’s bringing in and focusing on what made those deals or properties so successful (or what didn’t). When you can think bigger than what’s right in front of you, it’s much easier to see the whole picture. And thinking big when it comes to real estate is really the only way to go.
But Josh is talking about more than just his real estate investment strategy today. This is a guy with a real passion for this business, and he shares how he stays so optimistic and energized about his career. Josh is the kind of guy who lives with a purpose and he goes beyond the paycheck to find his motivation. This is a trick he learned from his mentors and coaches over the years. Hiring a coach will help you keep your eye on the prize, and it’s only one of the many nuggets of knowledge Josh is sharing today. Tune in now to catch them all.
