Real Estate Investing Profit Masters by Cory Boatright (investing)
Today’s guest is Tony Javier. He’s in San Diego crushing it with rehabs and rentals, turning over 60 properties a year. His unique profit making strategy involves a really great rent-to-own policy that’s paid off over the years, and his highly skilled team of employees is really what makes it all possible for him. He’s on today to talk about how important his team and his mentors have been to his success in real estate. [youtube][/youtube] Even though rehab is his number one focus, Tony talks a lot about the importance of people. He learned early on how hard it was trying to do everything himself, and it gets even harder if you don’t have a real hiring strategy in place. But even with the systems, you need to put good people in the positions they deserve. When you have the right people, you know you can trust their decisions, trust their deals, and really see your profits soar. How do you find these good people? Tony’s advice involves finding a mentor, someone who’s done it before and can give you advice on how to hire. In fact, Tony’s biggest piece of advice for everyone is to find a mentor ASAP! He’s been using coaches since the beginning – he even finds himself mentoring others half the time – and the lessons he’s learned from them have proven to be invaluable. The best investment you can make is in yourself, and a mentor or a coach will only help you on that path toward enlightenment. Without his mentors, Tony would never have built the team he has today or the unique rent-to-own profit strategy he’s perfected.

My guest today is rocking it all the way up in Long Island, New York. Billy Alvaro’s blitzkrieg process is really changing the real estate game, and the pointers he’s sharing on today’s show may even change up the way you’re doing business. [youtube][/youtube] Billy got started working with mortgages in the early 2000s, and he had almost 1000 employees working with him. But when the housing bubble popped, he lost a lot of his profits and even more of his confidence. How do you bounce back from something like that? Well, with his strong foundation in real estate investment (something he’s been honing since he attended his first seminar at 16!) and a super-supportive spouse, Billy bounced back tenfold. His new strategy with wholesaling and flipping vacant houses brought his groove back, but it was his personal transformation that really helped him succeed. [Tweet "You’re going to trip, you’re going to fall, get yourself up quick and start now. - Billy"] The most important thing you can remember in this business is never to give in to your fear. What are you so afraid of? That’s the question that got Billy motivated to try again, and it’s definitely what’s kept him at the top for so long now. When you’re afraid, you only hold yourself back from your true potential and your true success. The fear is only temporary, and once you face it head on, you’re going to be a stronger person. Billy shares this experience and offers up his best piece of advice for overcoming that fear of the unknown: hiring a mentor or a coach! Finding this person who’s done it all before, who has that tried and true method, is going to hook you up with the skills you need and will really motivate you and inspire you to stick to your guns and pursue the path you know is right.

I know there’s a lot of real estate investors out there who are a little afraid to explore the realm of private lenders. That’s why I’ve brought Heather Dreves on the show today. She works with a private lender - Secured Investment Corp – and she’s spent decades working the ins and outs of the lending business. She’s seen real estate investors succeed and fail, and she herself has a few learning experiences to share, and all of it inspired her to pursue real estate investment! So if a private lender can venture into our area of expertise, all of us real estate investors can benefit from her knowledge as well. [youtube][/youtube] Heather enjoys lending money to self-employed entrepreneurs and their families. Watching people succeed in their business motivates her, and that’s why she and her lending team focus on transparency, mentorship, and making sure their people make their money back. She learned early on that focusing on the bottom line was not enough to sustain a business, and after foreclosures and property taxes caught up with many of her clients, she decided to change her approach. Now, seminars, classes, and success and accountability programs are all ways Heather and Secured Investment Corp are insuring that their clients earn all their money back (and then some). 

Can you handle 1,000 calls in one day? Peter Vekselman can! He’s my guest today, and he’s talking about the new real estate investment strategy he’s been pioneering. He is literally transforming the real estate scene in Atlanta and across the country with this business model. [youtube][/youtube] Peter calls his strategy a “consultative approach” and it is groundbreaking. His consultative approach involves combining a real estate brokerage with a real estate investment firm, and it’s so successful because it keeps everything internal. There’s no more stress about when or how or where things are going to get done, because you already know where your team is going and what they’re doing. Once you create an internal system to you can rely on, you easily know what’s going on and when it’s happening. It’s also much easier to copy and apply to business models across the country, which is exactly what he’s doing. [Tweet "One way or another, you’re going to pay a price in this business. - Peter"] Building this trust and establishing his strong reputation are all an integral part of Peter’s team and business He and his team are right out there in the field, getting face-to-face with potential sellers, and pinpointing their exact motives. This face-to-face model is key to Peter’s success. By implementing this strategy into his business model, Peter is tripling his profits and exploding his team. He’s even starting to franchise out across other states! So tune in now so you can catch a ride on this amazing guy’s brilliant strategy.

Today’s guest is HUGE! Ken Corsini is getting his own show on HGTV called Flipping the South. It airs next Thursday, May 12th, at 11pm Eastern Time, so set your DVR right now before you forget. Because after this interview you’re definitely going to want to see this guy in action. [youtube][/youtube] Ken is on the podcast today to talk about the real estate scene in Atlanta and how he managed to score a spot on HGTV. He’s been in the game for over a decade now, and he’s learned a thing or two about flipping houses. His unique perspective on flipping turnkey properties isn’t your typical fix-and-flip situation. Ken and his wife work together to find one-of-a-kind, off-market properties, including old farm houses, that they then transform into move-in ready homes for eager homeowners. He did 100 flips in 2015 alone! So if you want to get in on his profit making strategy, listen to Ken break down a few life lessons. [Tweet "If there’s one word investors need to incorporate into the repertoire, it’s adaptation. - Ken"] The biggest lesson Ken and I talk about today is adaption. We all know that keeping up in this market is sometimes impossible. You have to learn how to stay on your toes if you want to keep up with all the new technology, housing options, and real estate law. Ken talks about how to read the right signs and follow the right trends so you can start incorporating a little modernity into your business plan. He’s like a breath of fresh air! Ken knows that the best way to be successful in real estate is to keep learning as you go, and luckily for all of us, this career is a series of lessons. Because when you learn to adapt now, you’ll still be able to keep up with the market in 12, 24, even 36 months from now. Ken is such a smart guy. We know each other from our Collective Genius mastermind group, and I am so excited to have him on today. His lessons in real estate, new construction, and in life are really going to get you motivated. Ken is the kind of guy that knows that this life is temporary, and he’s on right now to remind us why we’re really in this business! MINUTE MARKERS 5:25 - Ken takes us back to 2005 when he started in real estate 6:00 - How Ken escaped the corporate structure to do his own thing 7:00 - What is the turnkey market like in Hotlanta right now? 7:47 - Who is Ken’s biggest investor influence? 9:00 - What was the breaking point for Ken’s career? 9:48-  Ken shares how he made HGTV happen 10:48 - What’s it like to film with HGTV? 12:14 - We break down the metrics of having your own television show 13:30 - Ken and his wife are flipping old farm houses on Flipping the South 14:27 - Ken shares his own Profit Master Investing Strategy with new construction 15:40 - Ken works with some really unique properties 16:22 - The biggest lesson Ken learned that’s kept him successful – Adaption! 17:56 - Best advice for newcomers straight from Ken 20:11 - Ken’s favorite motivational quote is a classic 20:35 - The One Thing by Gary Keller is Ken’s favorite book 22:21 - Ken breaks down his winning (and strict) morning routine 23:26 - We bond over how cancer changes your perspective on life 26:20 - Ken is most grateful for the encouragement he gets from his wife 27:15 - Ken has never used a business coach or mentor! 28:45 - What gets Ken out of bed in the morning? 32:00 - Support Ken and tune in to HGTV on May 12th 11pmEST (set your DVR!) 32:22 -  And tune in to Ken’s podcast Deal Farm [Tweet "What’s working well for us is carving out this niche and building some really good margins. - Ken"] Links and Resources: Collective Genius Mastermind Carelton Sheets The One Thing by Gary Keller Deal Farm Podcast with Ken Corsini                                    Full Transcript Download the PDF Transcription Cory: What’s up people?

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.

[youtube][/youtube] Josh is the co-founder of Client Alchemist, and he helps investors connect with clients all across the globe. His four step process, which he calls “The Hierarchy of Connecting”, will break you out of that sales-person mentality: Identify Attract Connect Converse And that fourth step is the most important.

I’ve got another great interview lined up today. Gabriel Garcia, a prodigious guy from my mastermind group, knows the secret to success. We all know hard work pays off – duh – but what about working hard to maintain a positive attitude? Have you ever considered how much your own happiness influences your success? We may have started our own businesses so we could take charge of our lives, but Gabriel’s motivation may influence the way you look at your career and your success for the better.

From a technique standpoint, Gabriel breaks down his marketing skills – sharing a few mistakes he’s learned from on the way (and I ask him why he still doesn’t use apps in his business). But Gabriel also talks about how he revamped his goals to better match his business-oriented lifestyle that now includes faith and family. He’s a musical genius, but he swapped a creative career for real estate for the positive changes it made for himself and his family. His creative outlook brought an excellent spin to his business plan, and he can really help you transform the way you see your next venture.

  • Inside info on how you can get your deal funded
  • Knowing the difference between a good deal and a bad deal
  • Mike’s own examples of good deals vs. bad deals
  • What to do before you submit your application for funding
  • A few ways you can improve your odds of getting the deal you want

On today’s show I talk with Erik Stark. I think this is one of my favorite interviews because Erik talks about so many things I can relate to. Erik is a full-time American entrepreneur who has chiseled an exceptional life through real estate investing.

He has bought and sold over 400 properties and raised millions of dollars in private money. He has also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in personal development and real estate. He has worked with people like Preston Ely, Sean Stevenson, and Kenny Rushing.

A person whose bible is torn apart usually lives a life that is not.  - Erik

Erik’s passion comes alive with his family. He has been married to his wife who he calls his love goddess for 12 years. His focus is on improving his marriage through biblical based principles. He surrounds himself with people who are supportive of god, and he runs a ministry. At 33, he has had incredible success. Erik’s main business focus is in wholesale properties and lead generation. There is a lot to learn in today’s show.


  • Why focusing on lead generation allows him to find the best deals and choose whether to keep or sale
  • Having a knack for sales, real estate was the natural progression of Erik’s journey
  • His core influences were his family and his business partner
  • His aha moment came when he was in the hospital when his son was born
  • Biggest mistake was not holding on to more properties, instead of flipping them
  • Marketing is his Profit Masters Investment Strategy, real estate is the opportunity
  • Driving a lead with “in the streets” networking and advertising strategy even Chamber of Commerce or Rotary Club
  • Advice for running a successful business is stay focused and follow strategy
  • Find a mentor who has beliefs that match yours and let them guide you down the path

“Don’t bounce from opportunity to opportunity... focus on the goal go after it hard and don’t walk away from it” Erik

Randy Lawrence is the owner of a seven figure real estate rehabbing company. Randy is known as “The Real Estate Preacher.” This former pastor has met many of his goals and “visions” through real estate. Today he will share his lessons from the business and how positive thinking helps move investors toward their goals.

Randy began with a 7 unit apartment complex in Florida. He took that experience and built upon it to create the business he has today. Randy began his career as a money manager, but soon found a calling in real estate. Today, Randy has over 20 deals in the works and has a 5 person team to manage deals with him. He says success is not the guy on the phone all day, but the guy in Tahiti while the business runs back home. The lessons Randy has taken away from his experience are:

  • Move forward after a mistake. Keep moving even if there was a mistake, and don’t quit,
  • Be Strategic. Know where you want to go and have a plan to get there.
  • Develop a system. Design a method to generate deals to keep the opportunities coming.
  • Protect your thoughts. Positive thinking is your most powerful tool.
  • Be willing to accept help from others.
  • Find mentors to teach you how to do what you want to do.

Randy can be found online at Please check out his podcast The Real Estate Preacher and join the page on Facebook.

Hey, have you heard of Brock Collins? If you haven’t then you should check out his podcast Freedom Real Estate Investing. Brock operates just outside of Chicago and focuses on the why real estate is a great career choice. Today Brock shares his desire to keep his freedom while running his business and how he does that.

"If you are comfortable today, you're not taking enough action steps. You've got to get out until you're uncomfortable."

Brock grew up in a blue collar home, but he always wanted to see what the other side of the fence (white collar) was like. After making 24 grand a year while working 50 to 60 hours a week, Brock decided it was time to take his knowledge of real estate to the next level. He reached out to a mentor and began work on making deals. Brock learned traditional methods of property investment, but really made a breakthrough when he learned other methods of investment that better fit his personal goals.

Today’s Conversation Points:

  • Why buying with emotion will always cost more
  • E.D.C. -- Eliminate, Delegate, Create
  • Treat investing like a business
  • Lessons from influential books
  • Brock’s 3 Fs

Our guest for today is Joe Lieber. He’s a Low Income Inner-City Housing Specialist and a Buy-and-Hold Real Estate Investor from Cleveland, Ohio. Like so many of our other guests, we met through The Collective Genius mastermind. We’re going to be exploring his venture for financial freedom, and how it has led him to being an extremely profitable realtor in the ghetto.

Joe’s main deal is that he wants to work for assets; not for money (like Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki, who also happen to be his role models, especially the latter.) He’s currently in the 150 house range, so obviously he’s doing something right! Today is about how he gets to do everything he wants, and make money while he’s at it.

“There’s only two ways to get someone to invest into a property: a large down payment, or blood, sweat and tears.” – Joe

Today’s Topics Include:

  • Why Joe is huge on passive income
  • His best real estate strategies
  • The quick and easy way to breaking into the real estate business
  • How coaches pay for themselves and why you should have already gotten one
  • Joe’s experience with lease-to-own rentals

“I could have taken the elevator, but instead I took the stairs.” – Joe

Today we’re joined by Daren Blomquist, data expert and Vice President of RealtyTrac. He graduated from Trinity International University with a degree in English Communications, in the hopes of becoming a newspaper journalist. However, in 2001, he started with RealtyTrac thinking it would be a small, internal publication. But to his surprise, he ended up sticking with it ever since.

He’s directly responsible for the creation of the company’s U.S. foreclosure market and sales reports, and they’re sided by hundreds of media outlets nationwide, like: CBS, ABC, CNN, Fox Business, and USA Today. He’s been quoted in hundreds of national publications like: The New York Times, Bloomberg, Forbes and The Wall Street Journal. They also work closely with numerous government agencies at the national state and local level, and he’s a highly sought after speaker at industry events.

“Whenever I let go of control, I get more of it. It’s almost like holding on to a cactus: the tighter you hold on, the more it hurts you.”

Today is really all about data analysis, how and why RealtyTrac came to be, and some ups and downs Daren faced while the company was growing. We talk about the importance of handing off tasks as today’s Profit Master’s Investment Strategy, and the positive results that come from passing off responsibility and control. Daren tells us this is his best piece of advice to running a successful real estate data team.

We discuss a great strategy that we have observed in successful investors, which entails buying the foreclosure rights on houses before they can be repossessed, and are able to do this by using the information provided by RealtyTrac.

“People give up on something quicker than they should instead of giving it time to succeed.”

Lastly, we get a best-kept secret about the RealtyTrac website, and how you can use it to dominate the foreclosure market. You’re basically creating lists of people you want to market to, so this is just as useful for marketing as it is for investing and real estate. So go ahead, create a free account, and check out the millions of records we have on file, today!

Daren loves hearing from his audience. So, if you’re an investor, e-mail Daren at, and tell him your stories and what you’ve been seeing in your market.

“Even when I don’t feel like I’m making as much of a difference as I’d like to, just continuing to believe in it and continuing to do what I know—is what I should be doing.

Last week we had Dave Payerchin, and this week we have his partner RJ Pepino. Together they run Columbus Turn Key Houses. They’re an extraordinary company that provides incredible returns on profits for doing your investing in Columbus. RJ has closed over 150 real estate transactions, he’s an expert in the Columbus market, he’s had formal training in deal structuring and creative financing, and he also has a B.A. in Marketing from Youngstown State University.  

“Don’t wait for opportunities. Create opportunities.” – RJ Pepino

RJ went from selling cellphones at AT&T to being the manager, to fixing and flipping houses; so he tells us all about his transition, and then tells us a bit about how he learned the problems associated with not having proper contracts, the hard way. He shares his advice for running a successful business, and describes the importance of hiring and delegating people to help you run yours successfully.

Today’s topics include:

  • How RJ helps run the company with Dave
  • Who he is and what his expertise is in real estate.
  • Four different ways of getting money as a landlord
  • What made him want to get involved in real estate
  • RJ’s breaking point to entering real estate

“You don’t want to make any handshake deals in real estate.” – RJ Pepino

Today’s REIP strategy: “When you’re talking to a seller, you have to ask good questions. For example, some of the questions we ask if they’ve called in for a property are: “Do you have any other properties for sale?” “Are you in the market to buy properties?” “If you’re not in the market for our price point, do you know anyone that is, and is wanting to sell?”

“Pressure will crush you if you fold, but you have two choices: you can either flex or fold. And personally, I like to flex.” - RJ Pepino

Thanks for listening, and be sure to pay attention so you can find out how to get your free real estate investing guide today.

Today we have another incredible guest: his name is Dave Payerchin. We met at the Collective Genius Mastermind, and he’s a part of Columbus turnkey houses. He and his partner RJ Pepino specialize in networking, raising capital, system automation and developing and maintaining those relationships.

More specifically, they deliver superior service for competitive pricing in Columbus for Ohio investors, and their team understands every aspect of turnkey process from acquisition to resell. So they’re equipped with knowledge and infrastructure to provide a seamless investment experience and a quality product whether it’s investing, lending, buying, selling, property management, or even the federally subsidized rental properties section 8 and they’re just an incredible team.

Dave’s company focuses primarily on single family homes, and sometimes up to two to four units. It’s a heavy cash flow market, and right now he’s doing great. He didn’t get to where he is without a fight, however, and that’s one of the things we discuss. Some of today’s other topics include:

  • How you can take control of your life with your attitude   
  • Why he’s developing the ownership mentality
  • Dave’s best Profit Masters investing strategy
  • The story behind how Dave and his partner have reached success as a team
  • Dave’s top reads and business app picks  
  • How real estate became less about the money, and more about self-development

We also dove headfirst into Dave’s past. He was a self-proclaimed glorified telemarketer, but explains to us the reasons why that job was actually a big learning stepping stone for him. He tells us that after making $180,000 in his first year in real estate, he was filing for bankruptcy and signing wallet houses shortly after. He mistook debt for revenue, and mistook debt in leverage, so listen up, because as we know, the smartest way to learn is from other people’s mistakes.

Our guest really emphasized the importance of staying positive and attracting what you want to achieve in life with your mind and your attitude. This is the breaking point for so many people, because there’s nothing stronger than your mind; what your brain says, goes. He explains how this and his spiritual development have been fundamental to his success.

“All of life is an internal battle.”

Another great piece of advice we were given today was to surround yourself with people that compliment your weaknesses, and build you up in your business. Personally, he talks about how his partner really helped him overcome his adversities; enough so that Dave quit smoking and drinking, and is now living a much healthier and happier lifestyle.

For more information about their business, you can visit the website in the links below, or e-mail them at If you’re interested in buying great cash flow properties in the Columbus area or have some money you want to start gaining interest on, don’t hesitate to shoot us a message.

Make sure to stay tuned for our next episode, where I’ll be interviewing Dave’s awesome business partner and best friend, RJ Pepino.

I have an absolutely incredible investor today named Mitch Steven, out of Canyon Lake, TX.  He’s someone I met at the Collective Genius Mastermind. He’s a total rock star, and has been self-employed since 1996, having purchased over 1000 houses in the San Antonio area. He’s also a self-taught high school graduate, and he never stopped learning.

He specializes in owner finance properties to individuals left behind by traditional lending institutions and gives new life to properties that scar the neighborhoods, so he’s perfected the method of achieving cash flow without being a landlord or rehabbing properties.

He’s also mastered the art of private money, and the classic nothing down deal. This is someone with over 1100 doors in storage facilities breaks down his strategy, and you’re going to love it.

Today we dive into:

  • Why he started a career in real estate
  • The one strategy that made him a multi-millionaire
  • What he was doing before real estate and how it affected his current success
  • His worst deal and how he handled it like a pro
  • His Profit Masters Investing strategies and why they’re fool-proof
  • How he got good at saying “This isn’t what I do”
  • Why you should learn to delegate

Mitch is knocking if out of the park, currently dealing with a lot of owner-finance issues. We go through and talk about what he specifically focuses on in real estate. He does everything, but we talk about his main gigs and why he chose real estate as his main endeavor.

Finally we discuss establishing owner-finance value, creating your own value and owner finance strategy. We broke it down into how to get your owner-finance price, FAK funds and the importance of not over leveraging.

Make sure to listen closely and see how you can get your free investor guide. Thanks for listening, and check in soon for another awesome episode.

I’ve got someone really special today, and her name is Lindsey Jean. She’s president of “High Heels and Hard Hats” and she’s also a part of Cash Cow Know How.

Lindsey really knows her stuff, and I think you’re going to be blown away by how she talks about the mindset shifts she’s had to go through in life and how she’s taken all those negative things and become a rock star, and one of our profit stars!

Before being in real estate, Lindsey was one of the best horse trainers in the country. Between working for a Forbes list billionaire and all of his wealthy clients, she definitely learned a thing or two from them along the way.

Actually, they’re the reason Lindsey began in real estate, which we’ll talk about during the show. She started out 12 years ago as a broker and later moved on to being an agent. She’s now involved in wholesale and fix-and-flips. Some of the topics we covered were:

  • Why she became a real estate agent
  • Who her biggest influences in life were and why
  • Lindsey’s top profit master investing strategy
  • Why mentors are a must
  • How to run a successful real estate business

We’ve talked about limiting beliefs on the show before, and we skimmed it again today when Lindsey talked to us about the piece of advice that’s gotten her to where she is today.

We also dive into some more personal aspects of Lindsey’s day-to-day life, like her favorite book, business app and quote, and what her morning routine looks like.

Lindsey also told us a couple of pretty cool stories in today’s episode, so stay tuned and let us know what you think!

If you want to get in touch with Lindsey, you can send her an email at

We really hope you enjoy today’s episode, and if you do, please be sure to tell us by giving us an  iTunes review.

Today on Real Estate Investing Profits, Profit Masters Podcast, my guest is Mike Hambright of Flipnerd, an online site which allows real estate investors, vendors and clubs to list and view properties and provides access to many buyers.  Mike is also involved with HomeVestors, a  60-member strong franchise site  where he also serves as a mentor to other franchisees.  Mike really likes to rehab properties because he loves to see the transformation and also believes rehabbing offers the greatest financial success.  


Mike explains he was involved initially in the corporate world and later joined  a startup that he eventually became an affiliate with.  He reached the point where he was faced with going back into  has the corporate world doing something on his own.  He decided he would rather control his own destiny and began investing in real estate around the Dallas area.  He became a HomeVestors franchisee and worked very hard as he recognized that failure was not an option.  


Mike’s Profit Master Investing Strategy:

If you are wholesaling, it is especially important to have access to many buyers.  If you rely on the same people over and over they may come to expect a customer discount or may eventually become disinterested.  Mike says at Flipnerd, they have built the largest off-market listing platform for wholesale dealers.  At the ten thousand member mark, Flipnerd supplies that large number of potential buyers.


In offering advice for running a successful business, Mike believes you need to treat it like a business, get systems in place, contacts developed and a network going.  If Mike had to start all over again, he would likely collaborate more early on and not be so worried about thinking of everybody as the competition.  He also believes you need to learn what you are and are not good at and hire somebody to help in the areas where you may not be as good or don’t have a great interest.

Brian Ellwood used to shake the hands of strangers and ask them what they did for living.  He felt trapped in a  job where he had no control of his own time.  His strategy paid off and propelled him into property flipping and rental property investment.  On this episode Brian shares his story and provides really valuable insight along the way.

Brian begins by discussing how he got started in the business.  A stranger gave him the opportunity to get a lead for him.  The guy closed on the deal and gave Brian a one thousand dollar check.  At that moment it clicked for Brian and he realized there was a way to get paid for the value you add,  instead of your time.

As far as an example of a mistake, Brian said for him it was not hiring someone soon enough to do what he does.  He hired an acquisitions manager to deal with sellers and within months his business tripled.     

For a Profit Master investing strategy, Brian talks about the book, Profit First by Mike Michalowicz.  The traditional way to look at things is by sales minus expenses equals profit, but the book flips the script by using a different formula of sales minus profit equals expenses.  Brian has put this theory into action and he explains how it helps him watch his profitability stack up while forcing him to be more frugal.  

Brian offers his keys to running a successful real estate business.  He believes in running it by the numbers and explains it in several points including:

  • Define the key numbers that a business needs to be successful
  • Assign numbers to the employees who handle those areas
  • Hold a weekly scorecard meeting where everybody is accountable for their part
  • If somebody is not performing where they should be in the numbers, determine why

Brian offers the advice of:  shift your focus from looking for a job to creating a job and then, in theory,  you’ll have more money and with that learn to invest well in one niche.  Entrepreneurship and investing is the ultimate combination for him.  Brian says he most enjoys helping other people achieve their goals and remove their roadblocks.  As far as why Brian does what he does, he says he feels driven to improve himself every day and he loves to learn and create.  

Brian has a blog and podcast available on his website,  He hopes you’ll stop by his website and reach out to him.

Episode 7:  Mike Cuevas Real Estate Marketing Dude with Systems in Chicago


This week Cory had the opportunity to sit down with Mike Cuevas, known as ‘the Real Estate Marketing Dude’. Mike knows how to get the systems in place and get the phone to ring.




Mike has been in the real estate business for 12 or 13 years, starting out as an agent learning the ins and outs. From there, he entered the short sale game and ran one of the largest short sale groups in the country. He created a short sale model , assembled a team and at one point was handling 25-35 closings a month for two years straight. “The only way you’re going to run something like that is by setting up systems and having the right team in place”.


Building Processes and Assembling Teams


QUOTE: “You don’t use difference recipes every time you make a meal. Same concept applies - use the same recipe, the same process, the same systems – just repeat and scale.”


Marketing and sales go hand in hand. You can’t be successful without both but you don’t have to do it all alone. Focus on your own strengths and assemble the right team. Creating processes and systems are the key to getting the job done.  Understand what you’re good at and outsource the rest.


Quote: “You are the average of the five people you surround yourself with.”


One of the biggest missed opportunities I see as an investor is using their real estate agent for their marketing. You have to do a lot of marketing to find the deal that works. The investors who are licensed can team up with the marketing for their real estate agents. 


QUOTE: “There is no better lesson than experience. Get out from behind your desk.”


Mike’s advice? 


One of the greatest lessons Mike’s learned is that there is no better lesson than experience, but you have to start somewhere. Build the business. Be you and do what you want to do, but you have to put in the work.  Learn from your mistakes.


Let someone walk you through the ropes. Get a mentor, someone who’s been around the block a few times.  Go out there shake hands and talk to people. Ask questions.


You have to have a ‘why’ to be successful. Mike works for his family and is grateful for them and the opportunity to have his own thoughts and work for himself doing something he loves. These are the things that lead to success.

Our guest today is Alex Pardo, a business partner and friend of Cory. Alex works out of Miami, Florida and use to work as a GE Financial Analyst. Now he focuses on real estate systems and how they help him flip houses in his area.


Alex began his career in 2005 with a short sale job. He has been involved in numerous deals, but he says his expertise is wholesaling. The last 3 years his focus has been creating a team so he can step away from the everyday process. Alex believes wholesaling should always be at the center of Real Estate.


At the age of 21 Alex took a job with General Electric and found he wanted to be his own boss. He found Kawasaki’s series about real estate and started working in the business. Alex suggests getting a coach as soon as possible. He personally waited 3 years to find a mentor or a coach and he knows he made a lot mistakes and lost a lot of money in those 3 years.


Alex says his biggest mistake happened in 2006. Alex and his partner bought a half million dollar property and decided to flip it. They took out a loan and lost 90 thousand dollars in the deal. After the disappointing deal Alex learned two big lessons.


  1. Know your market.
  2. Stick to what you are good at.


The strategy Alex says works best for him is aggressive pricing on wholesale deals. He remembers a deal that was worth 300 thousand and sold it for 247 thousand because of the location of the house. Don’t be afraid to ask for more money if the property is located in a desirable neighborhood.


Alex suggests that newcomers should ask themselves what they like about the real estate business and focus on that aspect. Then find a mentor, and spend a little money so that it will be a more serious investment. Don’t be complacent and keep marketing and networking. Focus more on personal development and become the person you want to be.

Cory talks with a father/son team Greg and Matt Sneyd of the Muve Group. The Muve Group is based out of Salt Lake City and is part of MG Property Solutions. They flip homes, new construction, rehabs, and even land deals in real estate. Greg and Matt are also part of the Collective Genius Mastermind.

Matt and Greg have been in the business for 9 years. The whole family is included in the business and it has grown to a successful venture. It all began with a real estate seminar from Ron Legrand. Then they invested in education every quarter to keep on top of the industry. Many things have been learned in this education experience, and it has helped the company diversify. MG Property Solutions is a very well developed brand. Matt created a polished presentation for customers that makes them stand out from the competition. Greg give these tips for a successful real estate business:

  • Implement what needs to be done.
  • Don’t give up.

Matt adds that if they were to do it over, they would have used their own money for flips or shopped around for the best lending deal. Lending partners should never be permanent parts of a business model. Recommended reading this episode: No Excuses by: Brian Tracy Matt says that most of their business comes from social media. So apps that make photos and sale content easier are extremely useful to their business. One of the biggest lessons the two have learned is work with people who are smarter than you. Matt adds that don’t believe everything you hear in seminars. Laws vary state to state and check into the ethics of it. To reach Matt and Greg visit or

Welcome back to another episode of the Profit Masters Podcast Series. Today Cory welcomes Mike Zlotnik, a private lender for real estate investments, to the show. He joins Cory today to discuss the ups and downs of “marrying money with opportunity.”

Mike offers private loans for real estate projects that allow project managers to buy and repair homes. These improvements ultimately improve communities. Borrowers of this “hard money” have two options to pay back the loan, such as:

  1. Sell the house.
  2. Rent the house out.

Mike got started in real estate by buying his first apartment in 2000. He joined Tempo in 2008 and began his career in real estate. It hasn’t all been smooth sailing, Mike learned about fraud and the pain of huge money loss. But he has learned how to be more aggressive in his lending and how to choose the right borrower.

Mike stresses the importance of patience in business. Weigh out business decisions in pros and cons and exercise patience in your choices.

When it comes to house flipping Justin Williams is a master.  Or, as he calls it a house flipping machinist.  Justin joins me to talk about how he got in the house flipping business and shares some of the lessons he’s learned along the way.  Justin is the operator of House Flipping HQ, where he shares his expertise with others interested in learning the art of the flip.


After Justin sold 4 houses, he said he realized that he could make a lot more money by flipping houses than by renting them.  This year he expects to use the house flipping program he created to flip around 175 homes.  His breaking point came when he was 120-thousand dollars in debt and sharing a small house with a number of people in Bakersfield.  He started going door to door in the satellite dish business and worked hard.  After just six months he was able to pay off his debts, move out and get into real estate.  


That’s not to say there weren't mistakes along the way and Justin talks about those and the lessons he learned.  He also explains how his business buys from wholesale and flips houses.  

His advice about success is leverage.  The leverage of money, people, expertise, technology.  He discusses what systematizing has done for his business.  


Justin runs his business around the idea of - think less,  do more.  He suggests the best way to approach it is to have the education you need, take action and surround yourself with like-minded people.         


A few of the other questions answered by Justin include:

  • Favorite books

  • Mobile apps in use - he is big on using digital calendars

  • His morning routine

  • When to hire a mentor or coach - he believes in doing it quickly if you want to advance to the next level

  • Why he does what he does

Today on Real Estate Investing Profits, Profit Masters Podcast, my guest is Eddie Speed.  Eddie is the founder of Note School. Since 1980, Eddie has been buying notes.  His Note School is a highly recognized training company that specializes in the teaching of buying performing and non-performing mortgage notes.  Eddie is also the owner and president of Colonial Funding Group LLC, which acquires broker discounted real estate secured notes.  Eddie is a leader and innovator in the note business.  As Eddie puts it, he’s a note guy. He has owned several thousand properties.  He teaches people to buy notes, he buys notes in bulk and resells them in all increments.


Eddie explains that he buys existing discounted seller financed notes and defaulted notes that are being held by banks.  With the defaulted notes, he will then attempt to modify and get the customer to pay again, and if that isn’t possible he will try to get them to deed it to him or he  has the right to foreclose.  With over 40 thousand seller financed notes purchased by Eddie’s company he feels it’s an incredible opportunity.  


Here’s a few of the questions I pose to Eddie:

  • Biggest influence - his father-in-law and he explains why

  • Any big mistake made - he has been defrauded

  • Advice in running a successful business - don’t give up and don’t get so hung up on price you don’t understand how to be a deal architect

  • If you started all over again what would you have done differently - Eddie explains why he would have been part of a mastermind group early on

  • Greatest lesson learned - trust but verify

  • Why do you do what you do - Eddie has a passion for it


Profit Master Investment Strategy:

Eddie says in two-thirds of the United States real estate is too cheap for what it rents for in the working class price band.  He will find houses below a hundred grand that aren’t getting conventionally financed so the owner has to pay cash.  He then will owner finance the property by selling it to the owner for half and will then use it as a rental property for 5 years.  While there is a time that the owner doesn’t live in the property, Eddie has sold it to them for half the price and the renter has paid the other half.  Eddie says it’s a wealth builder and a win-win situation for him and the owner.

Jason believes in the buy and hold strategy involving properties and it really is his speciality.  One of his commandments of successful investing is:

Thou Shall Maintain Control - when you relinquish direct control of your money you leave

yourself susceptible to the fact that you may be investing with a crook, investing with an

idiot, investing with someone who will take a management fee for managing the deal.

Jason also discusses his term: inflation-induced debt destruction and gives us a history lesson of the term in action.

He offers three pieces of advice to run a successful business and explains these in detail:

  • Develop a brand
  • Develop systems
  • Develop a unique business model

I asked Jason some questions, like,  if you had to start over what would you change?  Jason would have purchased more property.  His favorite quote he tells us is a zen saying.  Jason lists some of his top books that had an impact on his life in one way or another.  He fills us in on his favorite app, his morning routine, his single greatest lesson learned, the things he is most grateful for, whether to hire a mentor or coach and why he does the things he does.

Jason has some interesting bits of wisdom to share throughout this interview.  He leaves us with the thought that it’s amazing how quickly investments will pay off and wishes everybody happy investing!
