Rank #8: EP202: WARNING - Jeff Watson Discusses Legal Issues ALL Wholesalers Need to Be Aware Of

Podcast cover
Read more

Jeff Watson is an attorney who had an active trial and hearing practice for more than 25 years. Today, Jeff is a nationally-recognized authority regarding regulatory concerns with wholesaling and offers general counsel to the National Real Estate Investors Association as well as advises four different national organizations with a combined membership of over 100,000 investors. On top of all that, he’s been a real estate investor since 1993. Today’s episode isn’t meant to scare you, but to help nudge you in the right direction so that your business does not get on the wrong side of the law!

Key Takeaways:

  • This podcast is not meant to scare you!
  • Who is Jeff and what does he do?
  • What are some of the legal issues wholesalers need to be aware of?
  • All wholesalers need to understand that you’re always acting as a principal. You’re either a buyer or a seller, and that’s it. You’re not a matchmaker.
  • Jeff loves double closes. He explains why.
  • Imagine being able to do fewer deals and make more money. That’s what double closing can do for you.
  • When was the last time you personally sat down and read your own state’s real estate license law particularly in reference to the definition of a real estate broker?
  • Unless you’re a licensed agent, you cannot be doing this activity unless you buy the property yourself and sell it yourself.
  • However, despite this, Jeff does not recommend you become a licensed real estate agent. Why?
  • What mistakes does Jeff see wholesalers make?
  • What’s the best way to market a contract?
  • Why does Jeff absolutely despise co-wholesaling?
  • Jeff remembers going to a real estate/wholesale seminar back in the 80’s and what they were teaching was illegal. The same remains true today. People just aren’t aware of the laws.
  • How many serious cases have occurred due to wholesalers not following the law?
  • How can someone who’s been doing things the wrong way recover and start doing things the right way?
  • Never blow off an investigator.
  • Remember, learn from your mistakes and make corrections to move forward legally.

EP382: Terry Royce Shares His Journey from Being Self-Employed and Overworked, to Becoming a Lifestyle Entrepreneur (whose Team Closed 100 Deals Last Year)

Podcast cover
Read more

Terry Royce got his start in real estate in 2008. He has closed over 500 deals and just last year he closed 100 deals alone with his team. It took some time to get there. He was the typical entrepreneur that worked 60-80 hours a week and just was too stubborn to learn from his mistakes. It finally took his business partner to put on the breaks and hire team members out so that they could stop wearing all the hats. That’s when it clicked for Terry and he was determined to take it one step further and be able to freely travel while making an income!

Key Takeaways:

  • What does Terry’s business look like today?
  • Over the last few years, Terry and his team have done around 90 to 110 deals. 70 to 80% of that wholesale.
  • Terry was stubborn during the first few years and felt like he had to wear all the hats at once, and that wasn’t scalable.
  • What were some of the early lessons that Terry learned? 
  • Terry would work 60 to 80 hours a week and was tired of missing all the important life events.
  • When you start to have a system in place, you start to realize what you’ve been missing out on all these years.
  • Don’t just do an 80/20 analysis on yourself, but ask your team members to do the same.
  • Don’t be so naive to think you’re the only one who can do something!
  • Your employees are never going to have the same standards as you, the business owner, but the goal is to help teach them to see what you see.
  • Can’t get your team to be accountable? Hire people that hold themselves accountable.
  • What does it really take to manage a team?
  • You can’t treat everyone the same and put everyone in the same box. What motivates your people?
  • Embrace your challenges. Don’t hide them.
  • What do you want? A lot of what you want might seem simple, but it’s important to verbalize this and actually figure out how to do it.
  • Give yourself space to really, really dig into what you really want. Don’t be influenced by outside perspectives. That’s not what you want!
  • The inner work is hard to do, but when you do it, it will help set you free
  • Remember, you cannot BS your way through the inner work!

EP378: Rob Nickell on "Hiring Battle Scars", and How To Set Yourself (& Your Team Members) Up for Success

Podcast cover
Read more

Rob Nickell is the Founder of Rocket Station, an outsourcing firm that helps you find the right VA for your business and structure. So many companies hire VAs or staff without even a job description! This is just setting a capable employee up for failure. You have to spend time creating SOPs so that everyone involved knows how to do their job and stay accountable.

Key Takeaways:

  • When Alex thinks about hiring VAs, Rob is the first person that comes to mind.
  • Rob and his team are trying over 80 people a month.
  • There are so many hats you have to wear when you’re a business owner, but some things require you to have certain skills, and those might not be your biggest strengths.
  • Everyone Rob knows who is successful in real estate uses a VA in some form to do the day-to-day tasks.
  • Every entrepreneur has had some battle scars when it comes to hiring competent people.
  • You can’t hire someone if you don’t have documented SOPs or even a detailed job description. Before you hire, get your ducks in a row first.
  • Document your process first.
  • Second, create a detailed job description.
  • You only have to create these documents one time!
  • The key to keeping sane is through outsourcing!
  • VAs can do about 80% of your day-to-day. So learn (in this episode) what you need to be focused on…
  • VAs can really do very high, high-level stuff. Rob shares some examples of what his clients are doing.
  • Interested in Rob’s services? They are ready to assist in documenting your processes…

EP375: $37K Pop on a Lead that is 4 Years Old? A Story about Persistence, and Using Empathy to Solve a Seller's Problem

Podcast cover
Read more

Alex is days away from closing a big deal but it’s taken four years to get this far. The lead was even marked ‘dead’ at one point but was revived through an automatic text campaign. The seller went MIA for weeks and when he finally resurfaced, he had a very strange objection for not going forward. Alex decided to try a different approach and use tactical empathy to really understand what’s going on with this seller and because of this, they were able to move forward with the deal.

Key Takeaways:

  • Alex is expected to make a 37K net profit on an upcoming deal. This was a lead that was in his system for over four years!
  • The lead has gone through quite a journey. They lost communication with him around Thanksgiving.
  • They couldn’t find him! He went MIA for two weeks!
  • The buyer was patiently waiting and the situation was getting stressful. However, Alex realized he was looking at this problem the wrong way.
  • Finally, in mid-December, they made contact with the seller again.
  • The seller was so determined to get the keys back from the tenants, who had already left the property. They were going to change the locks anyway, so why was he so focused on this?
  • Time to take a break and put yourself in this guy’s shoes.
  • How can I personally help you?
  • Go above and beyond. Don’t just accept the surface level objections.
  • Employ tactical empathy. Once Alex was able to do that, he was able to figure out what was really wrong.

EP374: 45 Rental Properties in 14 Months: Secrets of the BRRRR Strategy to Aggressively Grow Your Rental Portfolio (& Achieve Financial Freedom with David Dodge)

Podcast cover
Read more

David Dodge has 15 years experience in real estate but only found out about wholesaling five years ago! He wished he’d known about this niche sooner. It took him 10 years to acquire 10 properties and he did it the slow/traditional way. Over the last 14 months, he’s aggressively bought 45 houses using the BRRRR method. David breaks down this method and explains step-by-step how he was able to achieve this rapid growth.

Key Takeaways:

  • Who is David and how did he get started in real estate?
  • Wholesaling is a marketing business. Even if you’re not interested in it, you should still learn it because it will teach you the basics of getting directly to the seller!
  • If you focus on learning marketing and sales, you will never starve.
  • How has David been able to add 56 rentals to his portfolio?
  • David only keeps the best for himself.
  • David also uses the BRRRR strategy = Buy, Rehab, Renting, Refinancing, Repeat. He breaks down how he uses this strategy in real life.
  • Of the 56 rentals he’s acquired, 45 of them were acquired in the last 12-14 months.
  • Why does David not want to maximize his leverage?
  • David uses private lenders to help with the purchase and rehab of the properties.
  • Tip: Find a local bank, and develop a great relationship with your banker! Don’t deal with the big guys!
  • Make sure your loan renews, not comes due! David explains the difference.
  • David does a quick recap of his strategy. You need to be ‘all in’ on about 75% of what the house is appraised for.
  • How much on average is David cash flowing on each house?
  • You do not get taxed on creating wealth. You get taxed on income. David explains the difference.
  • David uses a property manager. His primary focus is to acquire, get them ready for rent, and hand them off.
  • What advice would David give to his younger self?

EP372: Discovering Your Purpose & Learning to Master Your Emotions, with Juan Carlos Bernal

Podcast cover
Read more

Juan Carlos Bernal is a serial entrepreneur, and has made a big impact on Alex’s life over the last 10 years. Juan Carlos is an executive coach and works with clients to overcome roadblocks (big and small), so they can experience massive breakthroughs. In today’s episode, Juan discusses how you can uncover your purpose, why we look for success in all the wrong places, and the importance of dealing with your negative emotions or fears in a healthy way.

Key Takeaways:

  • Alex has known Juan Carlos for over a decade. Juan has been coaching Alex since they met, and he's helped him in his personal life and business.
  • Juan Carlos is not an investor; he comes from the consulting world in the technology sector.
  • Why do people not do the inner work they need to do to succeed?
  • We look for success in the wrong places.
  • We are taught all the wrong things. Fake it till you make it, etc. In reality, what makes us successful is our purpose.
  • Authenticity is the new currency.
  • How can we find our purpose?
  • We don’t create our purpose; we have to find it. God sent us with a purpose already within us; we just need to uncover it. This takes time.
  • If someone had to talk at your funeral, and they couldn’t lie about you, what would they say about you?
  • We are enslaved by our needs and no matter how much you try, we will never fulfill it.
  • When we release that need, that’s when things really start flowing and start happening for you.
  • How can you let go? Where’s the fine line between focusing and letting go?
  • How can we better deal with the negative emotions in our heads?
  • Every emotion has a timeframe. When you repress it, it will be worse. When you give it what it needs, you will be set free from it.
  • What advice would Juan Carlos give to his younger self?

  • Eliminate the things that are not necessary for your business.
  • Remember, bigger isn’t always better… BETTER IS BETTER!

“Practicality is often just a disguise for fear and I didn’t want to stay in the realm I had lived in for the first 30 years of my life. I wanted to forge my own paths and take the risk.”

“We were in the subsidized housing arena, so collections were a big hassle and the expenses were hard to control. We were spending half of every dollar that we collected on operating expenses.”

“In storage, our income-to-expense ratio is 30 to 33 cents on the dollar. There’s a margin there.”

I am new to real estate investing, I have been a real estate agent for a few years now and I came across the podcast and have not stopped listening. Alex is so honest and real and provides such valuable content. It's refreshing to hear from someone who is so real about what it takes to suceed and who is not scared to reveal strategies.I am listening to every episode and every episode has valuable information that I can go and apply to my business.
