95: Developing Unstoppable Partnerships with Elliot Smith and Tucker Merrihew

BiggerPockets Business Podcast

Building businesses from the ground up isn’t easy. It requires patience, hard work, and most importantly, a solid team. Without trust in that team, the product, the company, and the vision can completely disintegrate. When a team flourishes, you can create a massive success, where everybody wins. Tucker Merrihew and Elliot Smith have been working throughout the past year on Call Magic, a service that helps uncover leads for real estate agents, wholesalers, flippers, and other real estate professionals. Elliot originally teamed up with Cole Ruud-Johnson (who you’ll hear on our Real Estate Podcast, very soon), and everything was running well, but they realized they needed a leader. After Elliot talked to Tucker about the project, Tucker was in. There was just one contingency: the product and the company had to be the best of the best. The three partners agreed to put their all into it, and respect each other’s work. Cole already had experience running an outsourced cold calling team, Elliot had years and years worth of real estate experience under his belt, and Tucker had the Real Dealz Podcast audience at his disposal. Elliot and Tucker walk through setting up your business and your team for success, what to worry about and what to hold off on, hiring team members from overseas, and growing a business to scale, not fail.In This Episode We Cover:What to look for in a business partner/what to look for in an existing partnershipHow to “dummy proof” your businessManaging, paying, and hiring workers that are overseas How to have better cold call conversations that secure leadsSetting out to become the best of the best in your industry Trusting your partners and letting them show their strengths when working togetherAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets Real Estate ShowBiggerPockets Podcast 381: 5 Rules for Investing in a Down Market with Tucker MerrihewMarketing Machines, Spec Houses, Flipping & Wholesaling | PodcastBiggerPockets Podcast 255: Six-Figure Real Estate Investing in Just 20 Hours a Week with Elliot SmithBiggerPockets Podcast 394: Making a 25 Deal/Year Business (and Marriage) Work… Together! with Elliot and Chrissy SmithAppleTeslaCheck the full show notes here: https://www.biggerpockets.com/bizshow95See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Tucker Merrihew, from rehabbing to Multi-Million dollar New Builds!

The Fearless Pursuit Of Freedom Podcast

Tucker has been in the real estate world in some form since he was 22 yrs old. He started out just as a good portion of us investors do, by wholesaling and rehabbing single family houses. But as the years progressed and his name, brand and capital raising skills improved, so did his companies projects. 2011 marked the year it all changed for him when he bought a house that had blue clay underneath, which in turn caused some serious foundation issues. Unfortunately, this is more of an issue for buyers in the Portland area, so they decided it was best to tear down and build new. This home eventually sold for over $600k, and since then, the builds have progressively gotten into the higher price brackets to today, where he currently has a $3.2MM home under construction. Their design ultimately led to them bringing home the 2014 Best Designed House over 5,000sqft. We speak briefly on his marketing structure and what he does. D4D(driving for dollars) became a core source of leads for the company as it provided a way for them to dial in the neighborhoods they wanted. From there they would mail, text, RVM(ringless voice mail) and target them online. To make things easier on the D4D side, he, along with his team design an app, rightfully named, Driving For Dollars. The app allows you to “pin” a distressed house on a map while driving around. After your list is built it will export the owners name, mailing address, phone number and much more! Check out his podcast “The Real Dealz Podcast” as well as his mastermind, DFA(Deal Finders Academy). Tucker can be found on FB here: https://www.facebook.com/tucker.merrihew
