After doing in excess of $100 million in personal buy/sell real estate transactions and another $150 million in client transactions, I am at a point in my life where I am ready to begin sharing what I have learned with people like you! So, all new for 2014 and 2015, I am now personally teaching real estate workshops that will help investors learn the insider secrets to building a successful apartment empire!
1. I am not interested in trying to pack a room full of 500 people to provide a cursory overview of the apartment business. I instead will limit the number of students to a very small group of investors who will be taught personally by me and NOT by some inexperienced trainee. Limiting the class to such a small size will allow us to interact with each other in an informal setting and thereby improve the learning environment for each of you. There will be plenty of time along the way to make sure all of your questions are answered. Students now have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with me! That's right! You can have your own personalized 2 day or 3 day apartment workshop.
2. I am not interested in charging exorbitant fees like many of the boot camps that range anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 (and more!). The tuition for the 2 day workshop is instead a modest $4795 when you meet with me in the Houston, Texas area! That's less than half of that charged by most others. Or you can choose the 3 day option for just $6495! I want to provide personalized training to a select few individuals to provide them with the opportunity to learn first hand how the apartment business works without breaking the bank! Bring a friend, spouse, or business partner for just $500!
3. I am not interested in providing you with a bunch of useless information that only leaves you with more questions than when you started just to turn around and try to sell you another expensive program that answers those questions. I instead will teach you by examining in great detail several actual examples of real apartment deals. We’ll analyze them together so that before Day 1 is over, you will know and understand what makes a good deal and what doesn’t.
4. I am not interested in presenting you with a lot of classroom theoretical nonsense that is likely to confuse you. I instead want to teach you the practical application of analyzing apartment deals as it applies in the real world. This means that on Day 2, we will go out and personally kick the tires on several different apartment buildings. It’s like shopping for a new car. You compare and contrast all the different features of the vehicle and then determine which one represents the best overall value. There is a wealth of information to be learned by walking actual apartment properties. This will definitely increase your understanding of the multifamily business by light years!
5. I am not
interested in presenting all of this information to you only to leave you frustrated by not knowing how to use it. I instead want to provide you with the tools so that you can go out and begin buying your own apartment deals. Taking our car analogy a step further, this would be like giving you a new car without giving you the keys to it! Day 3 (for students who choose the 3 day option) will focus on how to put the financing together for an apartment purchase, the current state of capital markets and the near term liquidity outlook for financing, as well as what to look for in an effective property management team. We’ll also get into the remarkable opportunities that exist RIGHT NOW
in the multifamily foreclosure market - how to find, rehab, and flip, or hold if you choose. These are the perfect Value Play opportunities
