More About This Show
Robert didn’t grow up with aspirations of being a successful investor. In fact, it was quite the opposite. He had no money or credit, and zero interest in real estate investing. He was raised with the mentality that “it takes money to make money,” so investing never crossed his mind.
His perspective changed when he met a client through his financial planning job. His role only allowed him to work with individuals that were worth more than 10 million dollars.
Robert was confused when he approached this client’s office. He was certain that he had come to the wrong location. The place was in shambles—it had chipped paint, and the sign was falling off.
He knocked on the door and was greeted by an elderly man, who Robert thought looked like a plumber. He asked for the business owner, and was baffled when the man claimed that he was the owner. Robert couldn’t see any signs of wealth or satisfaction.
During their conversation, Robert learned that this client had been taking over mortgage loans for the past 20 years, fixing up homes, and renting them to tenants. He had 120 properties paid for, one million dollars coming in, and took 6 months of vacation every year.
At the time, Robert couldn’t even pay his rent. His entire concept of money changed that day. The investing client became Robert’s mentor, and showed him how to accumulate properties without money. Within 15 months, Robert acquired 14 duplexes through working with money partners.
Robert’s message is that if his mentor can do it, he can too. And if Robert can do it, anyone can. Today, Robert has grown his real estate portfolio to include properties all over the world. He travels the country sharing this message with others about how they can attain financial freedom through real estate investing.
On today’s show, Robert is sharing his real estate secrets, including how to approach potential investors, and how to find properties below market value. We’re also talking about generating cash flow, and building true wealth!
