Real Estate Investing Profit Masters by Cory Boatright
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!

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!

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.

On today’s episode, I’m digging deep into his unique profit master strategy which relies on estate sales, SEOs, and a little of what Jim calls “ninja psychology.” Jim is the creator and founder of the Real Estate Investor Academy, his own personal brand that seeks out like-minded entrepreneurs to work together and offer consultation and advice amid our ever-changing real estate environment. He is one investor who understands the importance of an education, and he is teaching everything he knows to anyone willing and interested in pursuing a career like ours.
