Hello DG Family; I haven't posted a topic on here in a while, I've been busy with real estate and the rest of the time with my family.
I have seen some forum topics on here related to the academy with a lot of questions like where to start, what to do, it seems like there is a little doubt in some people who are thinking of joining the academy but don't get the answers they are looking for. I am going to give you all everyting I ve done scence day one. I also want to mention I understand "hesitation" when it comes to joining the academy, I'll be 150% honest, I would of paid three times as much to join the academy. The bottom line is that it is an investment to better your financial future, and if I can do it anyone can! You have to want a better life so bad that you can taste it and believe me, it's so worth it.
To start off, I have never bought anything from a tv infomercial in my life time until I saw Dean's show one morning and honestly, he seemed sincere and I know people not personally, who have made millions in real estate so I figured I would call the 800# and buy the books, and I also saw that there was a 30 day money back, so if I didn't like the books, or thought it was **** I could send it back and get my money back. simple as that. I got books and they blew my mind, I actually had to read both books 3 time to retain all information.
Then I joined the academy. Now I don't care if I get my money refunded, that's not why I joined. I joined the academy because it is and was an investment towards my financial future and I have no regrets what so ever. The information is priceless. If you have a question you call the coaches and they answer your questions to the "T", what that does is eliminates learning from trial and error.
I followed everything I learned from the books and the academy this is what I did:
1. Buyers. you have to find the buyers and know what they want to the T. I suggest knowing their shoe size. I got up one morning at 3:30 am to drive over an hour to meet a cash buyer who wanted to meet me in person to give me his buying criteria. The meeting only took 20 minutes, but it was worth it, I found a property that fit his criteria and assigned it to him. done deal!! actually it was a banked owned property that the bank accepted the assgnment clause and I assigned it to him with no money down. It was truely a no money down deal! Where do you find buyers? Everywhere!! Craigs list, put an ad in the paper, REI clubs, I would drive 3 hours to go to my rei club's monthly meeting that is how good it is to meet buyers and network! It all comes down to how bad you want it!
2. Have a good RE agent!! I don't care if you have to call ever re agent in the state you will find one who will work with you! I did, my re agent is the most valuble player on my team. He's investor friendly, not afraid to put in offers less than half the listing price, I am submitting minimum 7 offers per week and we are making money , remember it's not easy money, not even close,
I hate to cut this sort but I just noticed the time, and have to run....I'll finish up hopefully later today..If anyone has any question, please don't hesitate to ask me!!
What doesn't kill me,,makes me stronger!
