Your Probate Expert with Bill Gross Episode #167

Real Estate Experiment

GUEST SUMMARY Bill Gross has been in sales, management, ownership and was at one point a lender that ended up carving out a niche as the go to probate expert in LA, building his book of business, and now taking on bigger initiatives in helping his team do the same within the space. Bill reminds us of the importance of building a network whether you’re in business or not to be able to leverage your network which eventually turns into your net worth — if done properly and strategically. Bill practices what he preaches as someone who's leveraged his network before and after he was in business to bring it all full circle. When the mortgage crisis hit, Bill had been in 12 companies in 13 years due to the instability within the marketplace, so Bill was then driven to control his destiny and build his own business within a very unique niche — today known as the go to probate expert in LA, which pays more than dividends when it comes to being a thought leader in the marketplace that everyone gravitates towards and keep in mind first. More notably, his strategic partnerships play a huge factor in his ability to serve those who need it the most. Lots of notable gems in the lab for this one, tune in.
