Operating in a crowded market has its challenges. In 2017, the return on Max’s adspend was growing smaller and smaller, and Max started looking for alternative ways of attracting clients in Dallas. Having a ton of competitors and the same list of clients as everyone else made him feel like he was worth a dime a dozen. That’s why he started niching down to the senior market and creating additional value for the deals with the help of a referral list and senior housing information. After a while, he wrote a book for his ideal client that helped him get exclusive deals and expanded his customer base.

Anthony got started in real estate straight out of school. His parents were in business for over 40 years, so it was a natural progression.

Anthony got his license in June 2007. First several months of his career were great. But once the market crashed, he didn’t have a single listing for 6 months. He took that time to build relationships and rapport with people who could help him with his work. The first property he sold gave him a chance to look at the investor side of the real estate world, and Anthony was hooked.

Matthew started his real estate journey at 16 when he purchased a two-family home with his grandmother’s money. Four years later, he bought another property that was a challenge to manage. That experience taught him a lot of lessons that he applied later in his career.

With two other partners, he acquired a two-family house that he managed and renovated. After buying several more units, getting a construction license, and founding a property management agency, they were still looking for new opportunities. That’s when Matthew met a new investor and future partner who helped them take the business to a new level.

In today's episode, Theo Hicks introduces a new host of the Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever podcast show, Ash Patel. His background is in IT, and he stumbled upon the world of real estate because of the tax advantages.

In 2011, he purchased his first property, a mixed-use building. Pretty quickly he noticed that the commercial part of the building required way less involvement on his side, while the residential apartments always needed additional investment of time and money. From then on, his biggest focus was on acquiring more commercial properties.

Ash has a wide span of qualifications. He does his own property management, chases his deals, and invests in bigger projects with Joe. He is a great addition to the podcast, so be sure to check the interviews he’ll be doing!

Twelve years ago, Ashley and her husband started looking for investment strategies other than the stock market. They started with a few short-term and long-term rentals, eventually expanding to single-family units with historical background and multifamily units.

Before she formed a company of her own, she was a partner with another investor on a 225-unit multifamily property. Despite having a solid business plan, the company lost 120 people within the first ninety days through evictions and skipping. Ashley tells how she managed to turn around the sticky situation and raise the occupancy to 90% even with Covid-19 as a backdrop.

Bruce started his real estate journey by buying and repositioning single-family units and worked his way into the multi-family market. His company, Bakerson, now focuses on legacy ownership, making sure that his clients have a solid investment to pass on to their future generations. 

Bruce’s dad owned a bakery and employed his family members. It’s no wonder that his own company now centers around family values too. Legacy ownership doesn’t have to be about status and social rank. Instead, one could build something of value to pass on to their children while also teaching them how to make a living.

Today Theo and Travis are talking about three things that allow people to succeed in the real estate business. While many people focus on the markets, demographics, projections, and other specifics of the business plan, some fundamental things should be right about the deal for it to work. Occasionally, real estate investors get lucky and make a decent return even when some of these laws are bypassed. However, those are exceptions, not the rule.

David partnered with his father, and they started a real estate business together. By the time he went back to the United States, his company has already had an impressive portfolio. To acquire these properties, they followed a simple recipe that worked: save, pay the 20% down payment, rinse and repeat.

Chad quit engineering because it pigeonholed him into a very narrow career path. Real estate, however, offered him plenty of opportunities without limits. His family had a real estate business, and he followed in their footsteps.

He started by acquiring a 35-unit multifamily property. It was an off-market opportunity, and the business took off from there. Since then, Chad has taught several classes on how to approach real estate brokers and leverage your perceptual position into getting off-market deals even if you’re a first-time investor.
