Today we’re going to get hyper-local and discuss the eviction protection program here in Kent County.  No matter where you live and own rental property, there are programs like this all over the country that are helping residents who are struggling to pay their rents during the pandemic, as well as landlords who need to collect that rent in order to make sure their bills are being paid.

Gustavo Perez is the CERA Program Manager at United Way.  CERA stands for Covid Emergency Rental Assistance Program and its receiving millions from the Government that need to be deployed right away to help renters and landlords.

Gustavo is going to help us understand this program and how our residents can gain access, the criteria for receiving the money, and how many months it will cover.  We’ll also discuss some of the hesitancy that landlords have in accepting this agreement as well as the benefits from working with this program.

If you’re in Kent County, Michigan you can access this program by going to www.kentrenthelp.org

Mobile Home Park Investing has been a hot asset class over the past five years, and we’ve certainly talked about it on this show.  But what kind of opportunities are really available to investors right now, and how has the increased competition from institutional buyers and effects of the pandemic affected the opportunities in this space?

My guest today is here to give us an update on the state of Mobile Home Park Investing.  Brian Spear is a founder of Sunrise Capital Investors which specializes in acquiring deals in off-market, direct-to-owner transactions.  He’s also the co-host of the Mobile Home Park Investing podcast.

Today Brian is going to share with us the trajectory that led him to investing in real estate, and the systems and tools he’s using to not only build a world-class mobile home park portfolio, but to manage it as well.  You’ll learn the meaning of “Prep-ortunity”, and how Brian moved across the country to work with his mentor Kevin Bupp for free.  We’ll also discuss some new investments he’s making in parking lots and parking garages, and why he finds this such an exciting asset class.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Brian and benefit from the knowledge he brings today.  You can contact him through https://sunrisecapitalinvestors.com/funds/fund-iii/

One of the reasons people never pull the trigger to invest in real estate is that they believe they won’t qualify for a loan.  But what if there were a way to acquire property without ever stepping into a bank or passing a credit check?

Today’s guest bought his first 400 units using techniques that allowed him to sidestep the banks and work directly with the seller.  He now has over $100 Million in assets under management and he’s sharing his secrets with us today.

Bill Ham is the author of “Creative Cash: The Complete Guide to Master Lease Options and Seller Financing for Investing in Real Estate”.  Today, Bill is going to explain the Master Lease Option process and how he’s employed it in his investing to yield enormous profits.  Bill will share his “SPY” process, which puts the Seller first, Property second, and then takes into account how You will Profit. 

Bill also shares his outlook on the market and the looming distress he expects in certain sectors that will make Master Lease Options and Seller Financing important tools in your investor toolkit.

Today we’re also going to talk about Fix & Flipping V.S. Multi-Family and Jonathan’s investment strategy that has generated over 22 Million in profits with an average yearly return of 38%.  We’re also going to discuss the tax ramifications of both strategies, including cost segregation reports, depreciation, and the “Real Estate Professional” status.

Jonathan will also share details on the townhome development project he initiated in Los Angeles, and how it’s taken over five years to break ground.  We’ll discuss the 1031 exchange he completed by selling a Los Angeles duplex in order to buy a 14-Unit in Kansas City, and another recent 1031 exchange where he acquired a 72-Unit during the Pandemic.

We cover a lot of ground in this episode, and I know you’re going to benefit from the experiences Jonathan has had along the way.  You can contact Jonathan on twitter: JB2Investments,

My guest today has developed a program that is designed to increase rents by 3 to 5% without costing you a huge capital investment.  He accomplishes this by optimizing your rental space.

Jim Monk is the President of CLOZZITS and believes space optimization is a game-changer for existing properties as well as new construction.  Creating more space for residents is a bigger issue that most owners think, and Jim is here to tell us why.

Today we’re going to discuss the value proposition of maximizing your closet space, what potential residents look for when assessing unit storage, the types of systems that work best, the preferred lighting for your space, and the ways our “do-it-yourself” listeners can maximize space on their own.  We’ll also discuss the costs and ROI generated by installing these systems, as well as the tax benefits and strategies to pay for them.

Talking about closet space may not seem like the sexiest topic, but I guarantee you’ll find what Jim has to say eye opening and thought provoking.  You can find out more about Jim and CLOZZITS through their website:  https://clozzits.com

What I admire about today’s guest is that she is extremely strategic in her approach to real estate investing, fearless in the type of projects she takes on, and creative in the way she structures her deals and works with her clients.

Allison Koetsier is also a Top-Selling and Award-Winning Multi-Family broker with Compass Realty Services and a previous guest on this show.  Today we discuss why it's important to have a clear investment strategy & goal, the biggest mistake she sees first-time investors make, and why you need to build a great team.  We also discuss Exit Strategy and taking a holistic view of your portfolio to position it for your heirs and Legacy Wealth.

Allison also goes into detail on a 48-unit in Southern Michigan that everyone told her not to buy, and why she did it anyway and made an Infinite Return.  We’ll discuss why she was able to make such great returns in a tertiary market by spending $10,000 a door in improvements, and the factors that convinced her this was a project worth pursuing.

We’ll also talk about the conversations Allison is having with her clients in this incredibly hot market, as well as her advice to still turn a profit when pricing is so competitive.  We’ll also talk about her Father, Tom Koetsier, who passed away recently, and the impact his advice had on her future as well as his importance to the Rental Property Owners Association.

I know you’re going to love this conversation with Allison, and there’s a lot of great advice and investing wisdom packed into this episode.  You can contact Allison through her website:  https://www.teamkoetsier.com

When you look at all of the disruption, vacancies, and permanent closures in the office, hospitality, and retail space, it’s clear that we need to start thinking differently about Adaptive Reuse of these buildings.  And since one of the greatest needs we have in this country is for middle-income housing, I believe we’re going to see a lot more conversion projects designed to expand our middle-income housing inventory.

Recently I saw an article in Costar News about a permanently closed Ramada Inn located in Sheffield, Alabama that was being converted into apartments for middle income workers.  I thought this would be a great topic to discuss on the show, so I contacted the developer, Richard Rubin with Los Angeles-based firm Repvblik (pronounced “Republic”), and he agreed to a conversation.

Originally from South Africa, Richard brings a unique and creative perspective to obsolete and vacant buildings, as well as solutions for increasing inventory of workforce housing.  Today he’s going to explain the need for workforce housing, the types of adaptive reuse projects he prefers, the economics of adaptive reuse, and how the government can help facilitate this type of project. We’ll also go into detail on the Ramada Inn conversion in Alabama.

It pays to think differently from everyone else when it comes to real estate investing and development.  I know you’re going to benefit from hearing Richard’s perspective.  You can contact Richard through email: richard@therepvblik.com or on linkedin.

Joe is going to break down for us, step-by-step, how he left the time consuming and anxiety producing lifestyle that had him Fix & Flipping hundreds of properties a year while also selling real estate.  He was able to transition to a much more manageable and profitable lifestyle that allows him to control multiple teams at a higher level.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Joe, and likely will benefit from his advice to real estate investors who are looking to cross over to the next level of performance.  You can contact Joe through his website or facebook:

When you are beginning down the real estate investing path, one of the first things you have to decide is whether you’re going to go it alone or bring in a partner.  Today we’re going to talk with two talented investors who decided to combine their strengths in order to encounter the ups and downs of rental rehab together.

Mark Roys is a retired Navy Civil Engineer Corps officer who served 20 years in over a dozen locations around the world, he’s also been involved in commercial construction and software development.

Today Mark and Katie are going to share the story on how they decided to team up, the late nights and weekends spent on their first rehab, how they came close to running out of money, why they brought in investors, and the creative arrangement they struck with a next-door homeowner who wanted them to rehab his property as well.

One of the greatest pleasures I’ve had over the past 10 months while staying home to avoid Coronavirus, is watching the Broadway Hit Hamilton over & over on Disney Plus with my 11-year old daughter.  But until I met today’s guest, I didn’t realize that Hamilton and other Broadway plays are often syndicated just like apartments and other real estate investments.

That’s why I’ve really been looking forward to talking with Matt Picheny today.  Matt is the Managing Partner at MJP Property Group, has invested in over 6,000 apartment units, and is primarily focused on acquiring and repositioning multifamily communities.

Matt is also a marketing veteran whose 20-year New York City career spanned several of the world’s largest advertising agencies.  Matt and his wife are also Tony-nominated producers whose theatrical investments have included Hamilton and an international tour of Wicked.  They are currently co-Producers of the Broadway shows Moulin Rouge! And American Utopia.

Today Matt is going to share how both Lin Manuel-Miranda and Robert Kiyosaki motivated him to leave the corporate world and become a syndicator, how he asset manages his apartment investments and oversees the KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), and the type of property he invests in.

Matt also goes into fascinating detail on the fundamentals and economics of investing in Broadway productions and shares the story of how he and his wife became early investors in Hamilton.

Whether you’re a theater lover or real estate investor, you’re going to love listening to Matt’s stories and experiences.  You can find out more about Matt and the book he’ll soon be releasing by going to www.MJPinv.com

When my guest today sets out to accomplish something, he doesn’t just do it halfway.  He goes the full 110%.  In 2005 while in the Army National Guard he was deployed to Iraq…and was awarded soldier of the year.

When he started his own podcast called the Real Estate Syndication Show, he didn’t just settle on one episode a week, he decided to make it a daily podcast.

When he started his multifamily syndication company, Life Bridge Capital, he didn’t just build a portfolio of over 899 doors worth $100 Million, he also decided to give 50% of his own profits to better the lives of orphans around the world and the families who adopt them.

Today Whitney Sewell is going to share his secrets on goal setting and shifting his mindset to expand those goals.  We’ll discuss how hiring a mentor helped propel his investing forward, as well as his ‘why’ of helping to children and adoptive parents.  Whitney will also discuss investing in Colorado and Idaho and the explosive growth he’s seen in those areas.

I know you’re going to get a lot of value out of today’s conversation with Whitney.  You can contact him by email or website:

Imagine being able to control your rental property and real estate business from anywhere in the world.  My guest today has figured out how to do just that.

Jon Huber is a self-proclaimed “techie” who uses his formal training in data and analytics as his competitive edge in real estate analysis.  Jon’s rental portfolio spans from Los Angeles to South Florida, to Kansas City.  He’s recently completely systematized his operations to be 100% remote, allowing him to control his 120-unit portfolio and conduct his direct mail campaigns from anywhere in the world.

Today we’re going to discuss how Jon has accomplished systematizing his processes.  From the ‘boots-on-the-ground’ resources he has in Kansas City, to the Virtual Assistants he’s trained to handle his direct mail campaign and social media, to the apps that he’s using to streamline those processes even further, Jon has set up a system that will allow him to 10X in size.

Jon also shares the analysis he used to determine what market he wanted to invest in, as well as some tricks he uses to increase his direct mail response rate.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Jon and pick up some great tips and ideas along the way.  You can contact Jon through Instagram @ domuinvestments or www.domuinvestments.com.

My guest today has spent the last few years building and acquiring small businesses and real estate investments to create diversified income streams.  He’s invested in franchises, hair salons, laundromats, short-term rentals, car washes, and other assets with lucrative returns but not a lot of information available on how to get started.  Luckily, he’s been documenting these experimental investments along the way and will be sharing the details with us today.

Keith Leimbach has served as COO and CEO of several companies and he spent 30 years in the corporate world.  He served on a US Presidential Advisory Committee and hosts the “Diversified Income Experiment Podcast”.

Today Keith is going to open the books on his investments and take us on a deep dive into investing in Laundromats, Hair Salons, and Car Washes.  He’ll go into the compelling financial reasons these assets offer superior profit potential, the cost of build-out, expense ratios, and challenges of the different client or end user.

It’s extremely difficult to find real world information on these types of investments and you’re definitely going to appreciate how transparent Keith is in sharing his data and experience.  You’ll also discover which asset class is Keith’s clear favorite.  You can find out more about Keith by website or email:

I’m excited to be talking with a good friend and mentor of mine today about raising equity from investors.  Al Vardya successfully exited a 26-year career in the Information Technology Industry and began investing in Real Estate back in 2011.  He started with single-family homes that he still owns and manages, and then began investing in commercial real estate such as Class B Multifamily, hospitality, and office buildings.

One of Al’s many strengths is that he has created and maintains partnerships with sponsor groups syndicating private placement deals.  Al has also built a family and friends network of investors providing capital for these syndications.  He invests both as a limited partner and also co-sponsors some of these deals as a General Partner.

To date, Al has raised over $42 Million in investor equity across 37 projects, 12 of which have been exited for an average annual return of 37% to his investors.

Today we’re going to discuss what qualities Al looks for in his sponsors and the type of groups and asset classes he prefers to invest in.  He’ll also share how he built his network of over 120 passive investors and how he communicates and educates them in the opportunities he’s pursuing.  You’ll also get some incredible insight into the trends and new types of investments Al is targeting for 2021, including new apartment development in Montana and Triple-Net Leases in the Cannabis Industry.

Whether you’re raising money from investors or looking to invest passively in other people’s deals, you’re going to love listening to what Al has to say.  If you’re an accredited investor and would like to get in touch with Al, you can do so by phone or email: 248-444-7670

My guest today can best be described as someone who has overcome great odds to achieve incredible things. 

Terrica Lynn Smith is a real estate broker and investor holding over 250 properties in Louisiana.  She’s the developer of a $14Million mixed-use community and founding partner of one of the largest private real estate crowdfunding companies in her state.  She also has created her own board game that she designed to teach development concepts, and she’s been invited to the White House.

Terrica has also had to overcome enormous difficulties and challenges, including growing up in the foster system, homelessness, and Hurricane Katrina.

Today Terrica is going to share how she was able to get her real estate license after failing the test many times, how she realized that 3% commissions weren’t going to cut it, how she sought out a particular type of client, and why most of those clients left her when she made a pivotal business decision.

We’ll also discuss Terrica’s rehab projects, the board game she developed to teach development principles, and the mixed-use $14Million development she’ll be breaking ground on in 2021.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Terrica and hope you’ll be as inspired by her story as I was.  You can find out more about her and her businesses through the following websites:

According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, the delinquency rate for mortgage loans on one to four-unit residential properties has reached the highest level since 2010, when we were deep into the great recession.  As of November 2020, over 7.6% of borrowers are 90 days or more behind on paying their mortgage.  In the midst of this national crisis, what effect is this having on investors who own and service their notes.

And how are these investors working with their borrowers to provide forbearance and other options to keep people in their homes?

What does it mean to build Legacy Wealth in real estate investing?  Many of us are doing deals, making our offers, rehabbing and flipping our properties, and trying to make a profit.  But when we look beyond our day-to-day workflow, what do we see ahead of us?  Are we actually building Legacy Wealth that will allow us to retire with passive cashflow and support our families when we’re gone?

We’re going to discuss that topic today with Joe Bell. He’s an expert at helping Real Estate Professionals build legacy retirement and wealth, and he’s the author of “Asset Acquisitions & Abundance: A Guide To Building True Wealth & Legacy Through Real Estate”

Joe has been named in the “Top 40 Under 40” in Alaska, and has been featured in places such as ABC, NBC, Digital Journal, Investor Place, and more. 

Today, Joe is going to describe the challenges he faces investing in properties near Anchorage, Alaska, how he’s using the BRRRR method to build cashflow, and the benchmarks he’s set for himself to build Legacy wealth.

There’s a lot of great information packed into this episode.  You can contact Joe through his website: http://www.legacybeyondlistings.com

Real Estate Investing can present many challenges that both new and seasoned investors find difficult to overcome.  If you’re investing out-of-state, it might be difficult to get a broker price opinion, title search, or secure a property that has gone vacant.

In my own business, we quite often need someone to mow the lawn on an REO, or help us create a Dodd Frank compliant mortgage.  More often than not, we find ourselves needing to ‘cure’ a title defect on a non-performing note.

These are all complicated tasks that are either time-consuming or outside our area of expertise.  That’s why it’s so important to have a ‘guy’ who can handle it.

Dickie Baldwin is that guy, and through his company, Baldwin Advisory Group, he helps investors all over the country with many types of legal, property, title, and financing challenges.  Dickie has over 35 years of Real Estate experience as a Realtor, Loan Originator and Mortgage Professional.  He’s solved many problems for investors, and he’s here to share some of those stories with us.

Dickie will be discussing the importance of due diligence, why you need a reputable broker to create your BPO (Broker Price Opinion), why a Title Search is always a good idea, and many of the other considerations investors must make while investing across state borders.

When it comes to successful real estate investing, having access to reliable and accurate data can have a huge impact on your profit potential.  Technology has brought us to a point where there’s an abundance of data available, you just have to know where to find it and how to use it properly.  Today’s guest is levelling the playing field by helping small businesses and investors get access to the same data and public records that are coveted by larger firms.

Sean O’Toole flipped over 150 properties in Silicon Valley before he strategically exited the market in 2006 to focus on real estate technology.  He founded ForeclosureRadar in 2007, and in 2013 he pivoted away from foreclosures to general real estate with the launch of PropertyRadar.

Today, Sean is going to help us understand how data should drive our decisions, what we should look for when applying data to our due diligence, and why having access to the right data can create a consistent pipeline of opportunities and be a game changer.  We’re also going to discuss ‘Information Arbitrage’ and how understanding that concept has helped Sean profit from deals other investors have avoided.

Sean is sharing a glimpse into a world that most investors spend little time understanding or researching.  But those who do take the time can develop x-ray vision into opportunities that might scare away other investors.
