My story and what I learned a few years after starting my business
My parents got divorced when I was 10 years old. I can remember it, like it was yesterday, when my mom broke the news to me. I was actually very relieved and happy because they fought quite a bit and my father could be very mean at times. When he moved out he didn’t support my mom, me or my two sisters. My mom was left trying to make ends meet with herself and three kids. At the time she had $3.39 in her checking account – an amount she remembers to this day.
At that time, she wasn’t making much on a nurse’s salary and had a hard time paying the bills. As a nurse, she had to visit patients in public housing. As a young boy, I would accompany her on these visits as she didn’t have the money for child care. In the grand scheme of public housing, this was certainly on the upper end, being located in Charlottesville, Virginia. But nonetheless, they still had shootings and it was a scary place for me as a child.
When money got really tight, I remember my mom saying we may not be able to keep our house and might have to move into the public housing I visited with her. The thought of that was terrifying. I said to myself, “when I get older I must figure out how to make money so I am never in this position again.” As a 7th grader I bought bags of blow pops from the local drug store and sold them individually at school for 25 cents. To keep my expenses low, I would buy one bag and then rip out the coupon inside to buy the next bag. I amassed $80 at one point and thought I was rich! My blow pop business was soon shut down by the school, but I knew it wouldn’t be my last venture. Throughout the years my mom worked two jobs and was able to maintain the mortgage payment. Today she owns that very same house and her mortgage is paid off!
Some 25 years later, while in a mastermind with other CEO’s, I was asked why did I get into buying houses and not cars, pianos or something else. It was at that moment that I speculated my subconscious lead me to houses because I never wanted to be without a house. I certainly made sure of that – there were times in the last few years when I owned as many as 200 homes!
I made it through high school with very average grades and an SAT score so low that I’m too embarrassed to ever share it. I wasn’t a big fan of studying or reading. Now fast forward to 2002. My first child was born in July. I had finished graduate school two years prior and had a negative $80,000 net worth. In October, an investor bought my neighbors house – renovated it and sold it. I talked with him and he told me he bought houses from distressed sellers at a discount, fixed them up and resold them. I had no clue you could do that. Apparently, the book didn’t tell me that or perhaps I forgot after all those years. I had always thought you got rich in real estate by buying a home, putting down 20%, getting a mortgage and then holding the house until the mortgage was paid off and the home hopefully appreciated. Upon hearing that it was possible to buy, fix and sell homes, I decided that it was time for me to start a business doing just that.
At the time I had a full-time job. I would get home at 6pm and spend time with my infant son. I would put him to bed at 8pm and begin working on the real estate investing business until midnight. I would also work on Saturdays and Sundays. What was I doing? I was networking, attending local REIA’s (Meetups didn’t exist at the time), putting up bandit signs at 11pm (while dodging the infamous DC sniper), hand addressing hundreds of letters, driving for dollars, and putting out door hangers.
Each month that went by I got more persistent as I would show up to the REIA’s and hear about others having success. I said to myself, “if they can do it, so can I!” Month after month went by with no deals.
Finally, in July of 2003, I got a call from a realtor about a foreclosure in Manassas. I had made an offer on this very house through this same agent in March of that year. By the way – like many new investors – I had offered the seller way too much. Anyway, the agent called me and said “my client is going to foreclosure in 7 days. Since you are a foreclosure expert I thought you could help.” Not sure where she got that I was a foreclosure expert, but okay. I responded, “sure I can help.” I ended up buying the home for $25,000 less than I had originally offered. The seller had been taking her husband’s paycheck and not paying the mortgage. She had 5 kids and she told me she would have been homeless had I not come along. The bank would have foreclosed and kicked her and her family out. With the money I gave her, she was able to rent a very nice home, for her and her family, a little further out.
I went on to buy six houses in July and August of that year. In October, I quit my full-time job and started Express Homebuyers. Today we have bought over 2,100 houses. Express Homebuyers operates as a 7th level business – meaning it runs without my involvement.
Last year, I started a free wholesaling Meetup to serve and help people. You can find more info by clicking here. The Meetup group now has over 1,500 members and growing. One member said that attending my Meetups has helped her run her business more than spending $25,000 with a national guru!
What I Learned
I’ve learned the hard way many, many lessons. The top few are keep things simple and be fanatical about marketing and follow up.
- Create a follow up system to handle and process incoming leads.
- Using proven sales tactics screen the leads and set appointments with the qualified ones.
- Build rapport, estimate repairs and sign the contract at the seller’s home.
- Sell the contract to an investor and get paid. Its really that simple.
I will walk you through each and every step and give you the secrets to crush it!
