Episode: 151 Octavio Mota - *Sponsor: Investor Carrot* https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/carrot - Join your host David Pere with his guest Octavio Mota, as they talk about how Octavio went from homeless after college to now owning 20+ units in real estate and investing in startups. Listening to Octavio's story, it's clear that the man didn't start out with a silver spoon in his mouth. But by learning from his experience, the story's takeaway is that grit surely can take anyone a long, long, long way.    As a reflection from one of his two favorite books, The 4-Hour Workweek, Octavio believes that having the employee mentality shouldn't always be a bad thing. Although, that doesn't also mean that you shouldn't take risks outside of your job. Outside of your W-2, you too can be an employer.   In this episode, Octavio explains how he got started with mobile home parks and bought out the same company he was doing an internship for. He also shares how he plans to scale his portfolio as a real estate investor and in multiple startup businesses plus other business models far from real estate.   About Octavio Mota:   Octavio Mota is a highly qualified and well-developed Signal Officer with extensive institutional knowledge and project lead experience that excels at leading the Signal Corps through the entire systems of communication for the Army.   Octavio's a solutions-oriented Signal Officer with notable success in maintaining the Army's voice, data, and information systems while participating in planning and implementation of tactical operations at all levels of command.   When outside of the military, he is a successful real estate investor and invests in different fields of business from dropshipping, trucking service, and more.   Outline of the episode:   [02:54] Octavio Mota – the road to leaving the military [05:39] David Pere – on (figuratively) jumping off the marine boat [10:03] From one mobile home park to another [15:08] BRRRR-ing out of the country [21:39] Octavio Mota – on getting into coffee and trucking services [28:18] It's all GRIT!

Episode: 150 Robert Kiyosaki Join your host David Pere and Alex Felice in this golden episode with the one-and-only Robert Kiyosaki as he talks about Rich Dad, Poor Dad's core message on freedom, together with what can be expected from his newly released book Capitalist Manifesto: How Entrepreneurs Can Save Capitalism. Twenty-five years later, here, Robert explains to us the logic behind "Cashflow 101," the board game he released in 1996, and how it explains the concept of life on the fast track. Of course, when you're in school, all that you're made to focus on are income and expenses. But in reality, the eyes' of the wealthy aren't set on those. In this episode, Robert talks about his life growing up as a punky surfer kid in Hawaii, his opinions on pessimism and optimism, what he learned during his years as a helicopter pilot, why he just can't trust the dollar, and the reason why he came up with the book Capitalist Manifesto. Real freedom is freedom from job security! About Robert Kiyosaki: Robert has been heralded as a visionary who has a gift for simplifying complex concepts—ideas related to money, investing, finance, and economics—and has shared his personal journey to financial freedom in ways that resonate with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. His point of view is that the "old advice"—go to school, get a job, save money, get out of debt, invest for the long term, and diversify—has become obsolete advice in today's fast-paced, ever-changing world. His Rich Dad philosophies and messages challenge the status quo, and his teachings encourage people to take the initiative to become financially educated and financially free. Robert is the author of 27 books, including two books with Donald Trump, prior to him becoming President of the United States. Robert has been a featured guest with media outlets in every corner of the world. He is the host of the Rich Dad Radio Show podcast, a world-renowned speaker, and a life-long student. *Episode Sponsor* The No B.S. Guide to Military Life https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/book/ Outline of the episode: [08:12] The problem is when you're all talk and no action [09:45] Why Robert Kiyosaki wrote Capitalist Manifesto [12:50] Robert Kiyosaki – our freedom has been taken away [17:35] The Logic Behind Robert's Board Game [24:25] The most important thing about real estate is debt [26:16] I just don't trust the dollar, the govt., the FED, and I don't trust Wall Street.

Episode: 148 Sean Pan        Join your host David Pere with guest Sean Pan as they talk about how Sean created a path before leaving his W-2 job for real estate investing. Before, Sean was an engineer. After his first job, he realized despite the safety full-time careers offer, the growth potential is limited. When he reflected on his father's satisfaction in terms of career, Sean was compelled to make risk-taking more seriously. For him, the younger you are, the more you should be taking risks.   Aside from touching on his introduction to investing, Sean also shares how he got into doing podcasts. As a real estate investor, he acknowledges the challenges common to real estate and podcasting and briefs about why podcasters shouldn't just stay within the mainstream platforms for podcasting.   In this episode, Sean and David tackle limiting beliefs, hard money loans, entry-level investments that gained big, and the indisputable relevance of networking to every beginner in investing. They also discuss deep what seems to be the answer to every investor's problem in general. The two agree that doing your first deal will always be more important than making sure your first deal is perfect.   About Sean Pan:   Sean is a real estate investor and hard money lender based in the San Francisco Bay Area and invests in single-family renovations as well as out-of-state investments in Jacksonville, Florida.   He is the host of "The Everything Real Estate Investing Show," where he interviews top investors and professionals (agents, architects, contractors, and inspectors) to shed light on what they do and how to help investors succeed in the industry.   Sean hosts local meetups in the South Bay, produces real estate-related videos, and consistently reports on local real estate news.   Sean focuses his time on providing value and guidance to newer investors to give them a boost in their real estate investing journeys.   Outline of the episode:   [03:23] Sean Pan: An engineer who needed to find a way out. [06:02] How did Sean exit full-time work? [09:49] You can start REI with networking. [12:50] What's one way to crash your imposter syndrome? [14:57] The story behind how Sean scaled to multifamily and ended up with a hefty profit. [19:36] A podcast's power in working a broader reach. [22:55] Graham Stephan told me something… [26:28] What is a hard money loan? [34:07] What kind of due diligence do you look for in a hard money loan?

Episode: 147 Ali Garced Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Ali Garced, as they speak about turnkey investing, property management, storage, and Ali's many experiences as a real estate investor and an Active Duty Air Force Captain. As an investor, Ali has already done a little bit of everything. Because of her progressive experience, Ali has become a model investor that is easy to learn from for every individual who is just getting into real estate investing.   If there's one thing Ali wished she could've done differently, it's about how she viewed having roommates. As a bit of advice, Ali would tell anyone to embrace having roommates for as long as they can. When she entered the military, she thought it was time to let go of having roommates. Looking back at it now, Ali wishes her 1st purchase wasn't a condo but multifamily. With multifamily, she could've gone for a house hack.   In this episode, Ali shares with us the story behind her 1st, 2nd, and 3rd investment, as well as her different experiences with single-family, multifamily, and the challenges of managing Airbnb's and properties from distant locations. Together with David and Alex, Ali also briefs through why she believes storage is an industry that will never go out of colour.   About Ali Garced:   Ali is an Active Duty Air Force Captain with the goal of helping others achieve financial independence. She helps investors get started with house-hacking and acquire properties for their own personal portfolio, both residential and commercial. Having been through several real estate transactions and being an investor herself, with five units, Ali knows how to help any client find a good deal.   Outline of the episode:   [04:00] Ali Garced – on entering college in 2008 [07:23] Coach Carson's 'Buy 3 - Hold 2 - Sell 1' Strategy [09:21] The story behind Ali's 1st property [14:09] Using the VA Loan for the 2nd time… [18:06] The 3rd purchase in the height of the pandemic [25:40] About Ali's first multifamily investment [28:01] Managing Properties: It's a different business model from property to property [32:39] The 'little things' about your property aren't always little [36:09] Storage is the way to go, but why?

Episode: 146 Donald Appleberry - Todays sponsor is Rentometer: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/rentometer - In today's episode, tune in to your host David Pere as he's joined with guest Donald Appleberry. With experience and stories, listen to Donald as he talks about the standards you need to look into when working with a real estate agent, his experience as a real estate investor with wholesale, and what he's got to say about VA Loans that people need to hear about. In a deal, the hesitation towards VA Loans is primarily because of the requirements and limitations that come with it. Donald has come to find this the biggest and most common misunderstanding regarding VA Loans, aside from the notion that VA Loans are complex and not quick to close. In this exchange, Donald argues these connotations. For Donald, getting hold of a real estate agent license isn't enough and doesn't apply anything when choosing agents to rely on in a deal. An agent needs to be active full-time and have skin in the game. David also adds, trusting an agent just because their licensed is almost comparable to trusting your 10-year old child with the keys to your Ferrari. Donald believes – just because someone is licensed – doesn't mean they're a professional. About Donald Appleberry: Donald enlisted as an 0321 Reconnaissance Man in 2014 and spent over 2 years in Bravo Company on the Free Fall Team as the team medic. After deploying, Donald moved into Force Reconnaissance Company and filled the Billet of a Team Leader for almost 18 months. During this time, he was furthering his investing knowledge and understanding and has started his Real Estate licensing process, investing in single-family homes. Donald is currently looking into starting a non-profit company as well. Donald is a part of the Discher real estate group in San Diego, CA. Specializing in VA home loans and listing service members' properties. They make sure to squeeze every benefit out of the VA loan and ensure the service member is set up for success and happiness in their new home. He has helped multiple members in the military buy investment properties and walked them through how to manage them correctly, both in state and out of state.

Episode: 144 Jin Lym Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guest Jin Lym as they talk about mentors, leveraging other people's expertise, and how Jin pivoted from flipping houses to doing rentals as a real estate investor. When Jin thought about the possibility of catering to a whole family and his parents in the future, he knew he needed to start gearing towards building generational wealth through real estate. Jin knew he needed to enter a specific niche of real estate investing to reach generational wealth and financial freedom. Thus, he got into rentals. From previously flipping houses in Hawaii, Jin moved to rentals to bring in residual income. In light of the topic, David, Alex, and Jin also discuss how this dilemma explains most people's fault when planning out a way of generating income. In this episode, listen as they talk deeper about networking, the BRRRR strategy, why turnkey assets suck and why they're good, and how investors can capitalize on their superpowers in order to jumpstart and gain an edge in the real estate business.

With a bachelor's in Information Systems and Operations Management from George Mason University, he has over seven years of professional information-technology experience, working with companies such as Rolls-Royce North America and Rackspace.

Episode: 142 Michael Barnhart and Suzie Sevier Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guests Michael and Suzie as they talk about overseas investing and the importance of aligning with the right people and team. Tune in as Michael and Suzie explain the systems and processes they've built that allow them to manage multifamily investments even when they're stationed abroad. When everybody was sent home during the lockdown, Michael and Suzie started questioning what they were going to do with the time and restrictions they're in. The two stumbled across the book, Multiple Streams of Income from a mini book club they started. Then and there, Michael and Suzie knew that they could do it too! In this episode, Michael and Suzie reiterate the magic of having the right team and education. They believe that while for some multifamily syndication can get tricky, having different creative minds that know other things you don't prove one thing: you don't have to do everything yourself. About Michael and Suzie: Suzy and Michael are the Founders of Adventurous Real Estate Investors. They specialize in Return on Impact. Through real estate investing, they create immeasurable impacts; in their family, with their friends, in their community, with the families (residents) they serve, in the spaces where they want to be generous – everywhere and anywhere! Their adventure began at a TEDx event — the theme was Reset — and it changed their lives. Their "why" is to achieve financial freedom through real estate investing so they can serve others all over the world. They want to be able to explore this beautiful world and experience all that it has to offer. They want to create an impact where it is needed most. They want to share this journey with others by offering investment opportunities to their partners, and to give back by mentoring others along the way to help them check off their bucket list items now, not after retirement. - Sponsor: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/rentometer-sponsor - Outline of the episode:   [03:23] Starting from the book, Multiple Streams of Income.

Episode: 140 Ben Killoy - Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Ben Killoy, as they speak about where opportunities lie in life, the essence of creating relationships, and the struggle of men to find significance at work and at home. 'A machine of ideas,' is what Alex calls Ben in this whole talk. For one, to gain clarity, Ben believes that it is crucial to heed curiosity, for they're the breadcrumbs to where one's desire intends to be in life.     As someone who helps family men find back the joy and life in being a part of the household and family after service, Ben breaks down the factors that make it hard for men to do so. He explains how the media, the culture within the military, and the taboo-like treatment of talking about struggles in the military contribute to the stigma of life after service that the majority of military men experience. To supplement the subject, he also gives tips on how men can position themselves back in the family, after service, in a way that takes everyone's pace into account.   In this episode, Ben also talks about fatherhood, marriage, and children. When it comes to parenting, he believes it's more about the parents than about the kind of kids and children involved - a thesis he finds in common on the topic of marriage. Marriage depends so much on each individual's level of maturity in life, he explains. From experience, Ben saw that most of the problems in these areas in union lie in the person's inability to grow up and calm down.   About Ben Killoy:   Ben helps high-performing men with thriving business lives, and out of balance family lives get excited about pulling into their driveaway at home again.   Outline of the episode:   [02:13] Different actions for different results. [07:58] On preference – people or things? [13:26] The elements that go against men coming home from deployment. [18:00] Where are you headed? [22:48] The resources to rewire you on parenting and marriage. [26:57] A mind's game that has been going on for ages; One hand up and one hand down.

Episode: 139 Ryan Phu - Sponsor: Real Estate Investing Course: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/teachable-rei - Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Ryan Phu, as they speak about how he got into dropshipping, social media marketing, and real estate, all before reaching the age of 18 years old. Despite the hesitation, lack of support, and all the challenges he and his family faced in life, Ryan shares how he perseveres in bringing himself towards financial freedom.   Ryan is tenacious above anything. All the more going into his first real estate deal at the age of 17 – a feat kids his age aren't on the same level with. But because he was a newcomer, the inevitable happened to Ryan. His lack of experience was taken advantage of. With that big spank on the butt, Ryan learned the importance of giving more time to every deal, having yourself a buyer's list, and being confident in yourself.   In this episode, the three discuss the values that last longer with real estate and what they recommend for every single first-deals. They also go down on the mindset that can help any player in real estate come out of a deal more successfully the next time they, like Ryan, create $200k of value out of thin air.   About Ryan Phu:   Ryan Phu is an eighteen-year-old entrepreneur from San Diego. He's involved with real estate and other ventures and has had his first ever real estate deal at the age of seventeen.   Outline of the episode:   [02:24] Having to balance time and money at a young age. [05:05] Hustling early with dropshipping and social media marketing. [12:54] The everyday life of a student in dropshipping business. [16:03] It's not just Lamborghinis and Gucci trash bags. [20:06] On getting scammed: I didn't care if I was just 18. [28:32] Why look into the midwest? [31:40] What memorandum of affidavits allow you to do. [36:25] A big spank on the ass for a lesson learned. [39:00] On great thinkers and the first principle thinking. [41:48] When time is on your side, take risks and move along.

Episode: 138 Bill Militello Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Bill Militello as they talk about syndication as a process, raising capital, Bill's thoughts on multifamily investing today, and his company that links military veteran entrepreneurs and general real estate operators to quick and inexpensive capital raising –Local Vest. For Bill, finding the deal, getting the money, and closing the deal can sometimes work against people. In this episode, he talks about reversing the steps. If one can close a deal with their own money or the capital they can raise from friends, moving on with the transaction is more quickly achievable. Your personal network lets you walk in with confidence. He believes an entrepreneurs' success is their ability to raise capital, and that ability lies in the size of their personal network. Having good counsel and surrounding yourself with people whose unique abilities are different from your own is also an essential component of building partnerships for Bill. If one can surround himself with people who have the experience and integrity, chasing and closing the right deals can become a less risky nature when investing and operating around the world of real estate –an industry that teaches you nothing if not through the actual on-the-job experience. About Bill Militello: Founder and CEO of Militello Capital. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis in 1992 and later served as a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps as a Signals Intelligence Officer. In 2001, Bill moved to Wall Street, where he was an equity trader for Knight Capital Markets. Mr. Militello subsequently served as a consultant for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In 2003, he founded Piedmont Investment Advisors and set out to create not just another investment firm but rather to redefine the traditional investment model. His view was that the financial services industry was ripe for innovation. Therefore, he founded Militello Capital in 2011 to guide the wave of registered investment advisors "RIAs" to think beyond Wall Street and challenge the conventional allocation model, The hedonic treadmill. He knows firsthand the challenges of being an entrepreneur and RIA and built private equity products that create jobs, enhance communities, and fund the development of technologies that help mankind. - Advice to an 18-20-year old: Fear Nothing, and enjoy the ride.

Episode: 137 Hugh Carnahan Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Hugh Carnahan as they talk about his crazy first deal, the 2-second lean method, experience increasing a hotel's cap rate, and the overall mentality that has lead him to his many incredible successes with investing.   From Hugh's first experience, he has gotten himself into fascinating situations with the properties he's acquired. One of those is becoming his own competitor in a neighborhood wherein he owns multiple houses in a single street. This advantage gives him something that any investor looking to scale would want for themselves, the ability to reinvent your location's value.   In this episode, we will hear Hugh's whole experience on that and on how he leverages other people's abilities. For anyone who is starting in real estate, Hugh emphasizes the importance of creating connections. As an investor who's been there, for him, there is courage in knowing that you're not alone in this community and that whatever you try, you have people who will have your back.   About Hugh Carnahan:   After serving for over five years in the Army, Darren has spent the last seventeen years buying and selling real estate around the country. His true passion is helping people with their homes no matter their situation and then helping the neighborhood by fixing up the homes he can buy.   His dedication to the credence that "Every Seller Must Benefit!" is the guiding force that has allowed "Sell My House to Smith" to grow into the premier home buyer in El Paso and Pueblo counties. Darren's most significant achievement has been to surround himself with an incredible team of industry and military veterans who are every bit as passionate about helping people as he is, not doing it yourself, leverage other people's experiences,   Outline of the episode:   [01:55] 26 houses for the 1st [06:35] Rediscovering a stock investment placed in a company. [09:33] The lessons of acquiring 26 houses. [12:12] Scale and lock-in on every corner of the neighborhood. [18:08] The 2-Second Lean Process.

Episode: 135 Darren Smith Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Darren Smith as they talk about flipping houses, building the team, private lending, and so much more. Eliminate, automate, and delegate are the three key points to one of Darren’s most important focuses of work. In this episode, he’ll talk us through some of the processes he takes when making sure he gets everyone going in the right direction and places the right people behind particular goals.   Most success, for Darren, isn’t always all about the shiny and grand plans to achieving wealth, fame, and financial freedom. Rather, it is often about the most mundane and practical takes towards reaching targets and objectives. He believes focus and consistency, if not two of the many factors, are the most staple when trying to succeed in just about anything.   As someone who has already had the experience, Darren acknowledges two things when it comes to private lending. For him, it is an option that carries a lot of promise; at the same time, a tool that every real estate investor should be cautious and smart about.   About Darren Smith:   After serving for over five years in the Army, Darren has spent the last seventeen years buying and selling real estate around the country. His true passion is helping people with their homes no matter their situation and then helping the neighborhood by fixing up the homes he is able to buy.   His dedication to the credence that “Every Seller Must Benefit!” is the guiding force that has allowed “Sell My House to Smith” to grow into the premier home buyer in El Paso and Pueblo counties. Darren’s greatest achievement has been to surround himself with an incredible team of industry and military veterans who are every bit as passionate about helping people as he is.   Outline of the episode:   [03:24] For anyone planning to invest outside their local area.

From himself, we’ll get to hear how Gabriel, at such a young age, became financially free pretty young and fast.   In this episode, Gabriel talks from experience and wit about why it is essential to know when to be frugal, when to give, and when to throw in whatever it is that you’ve got when it comes to real estate and investing.

As Eric and the hosts exchange plans and experiences, we'll get to hear about what they think essentially equips a young go-getter to be ahead of his years and his goals.

Of course –with a balanced risk-tolerance. Let's catch more of what they have to say by tuning in to the episode.

Episode: 131 Rich Carey and Doug Nordman Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guests Doug Nordman and Rich Cary as they talk about investing and asset allocations during the pandemic. While in the military, Rich paid off $230k for a mortgage. Now, he's acquired a fourplex and six-plex during the pandemic as an addition to his properties. Later, Doug shares a story on getting a 529 account for a granddaughter and explains what it teaches about picking an asset allocation that one can live with personally. For Doug, everything flows, first and foremost, out of figuring out what one can tolerate in an asset allocation. In this episode, listen as they also throw in their two cents on scaling and managing properties and what they hold as personal opinions on what 'sure money' truly is, especially for service members. About Doug Nordman and Rich Cary: Retired at age 41 after 20 years with the U.S. Navy's submarine force, today Doug Nordman is an enthusiastic surfer, an omnivorous reader, a martial arts student, and a veteran of many chaotic home-improvement projects. With his retired Navy Reserve spouse, they raised their daughter in Hawaii. Rich believes that conservative investing is superior to aggressive tactics. He's been successful with conservative index fund real estate investing. Rich currently owns 30 units, with 20 single-family homes paid off. He has served 20 years as a Special Agent in the Air Force (similar to NCIS). After retiring from the United States Air Force, he is now living in Montgomery, Alabama, where all of his properties are located. - Sponsor: The War Room Real Estate Mastermind Group: Email wrmastermind@gmail.com to apply!

Episode: 130 Paul Farmer Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guest Paul Farmer, as he shares about how passive investing is changing the course of his career and speeding up his journey to financial freedom at his early age.   From his experience, Paul tells us what any youth needs to equip themselves with, in knowledge and the environment, in order to succeed in real estate or in whatever goal they set in general; a piece of advice he has tested and proven to be influential – even without a college degree.   About Paul Farmer:   Three weeks after graduating from high school, Paul Farmer decided to join the army at an early age. While in deployment, Paul started reading a book that his brother suggested. After reading Robert Kiyosaki's famous book 'Rich Dad Poor Dad,' Paul lit a desire inside him to achieve financial freedom with what he's getting from the military.   After his deployment in Iraq in November 2019, Paul came home with twenty grand and didn't know what to do with it initially. With help from a friend, Paul quickly entered real estate. At present, Paul is now a real estate and stock investor.   Outline of the episode:   [01:15] Deciding college is not for me after high school. [02:16] Coming home with over twenty large in savings. [08:31] The possibility of getting a VA loan without… [14:19] On Paul's pre-deployment game plan. [17:41] A common problem that beginners make. [23:38] The goals you set that lowball your potential.

He likes to watch HGTV. When Marty got out of active duty seven years later, he built a garage where he added an apartment to be for rent.   Ever since that project, Marty has been buying stuff, doing a couple of flips, and decided that buy and hold was the area that he liked and excelled in the most. From there until now, he has been doing that pretty hot and heavy over the last couple of years.   Outline of the episode:   [07:22] What is a tax lien?

Episode: 128 Matt Deboth Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guest Matt DeBoth as they talk about what cross collateral deals are and how Matt acquires multi-million dollar real estate or multifamily buildings without putting money down.   With deals, Matt works on everything in-house. He's got a management team that handles cleaning the property, raising its rent, occupancy, and conducting the needed tenant relations. Even when he bumps into significant damages, he knows he's got a team lined up waiting.   In this episode, tune in as Matt shares the method he used that helped him achieve nothing else but growth from his first-ever investment of hacking a 20-unit apartment alone – with no partner.   About Matt DeBoth:   Matt DeBoth is a Marine Corps veteran who served from 2003-2011 as Force Recon Marine, deploying to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Africa. Matt purchased a 20-unit apartment complex during his last combat deployment and hacked it upon his exit from the service.   Matt currently invests in the Midwest and owns a portfolio of 142 rental units. Since 2011, he has flipped 25-plus rental units and BRRRRed multi-million dollar apartment buildings, all while using traditional funding from banks.   Recently, Matt has started a full rehab on a 48-unit apartment building located in Des Moines, Iowa. Additionally, he sold his laundromat and began repositioning his portfolio to hold mid-to-large-sized apartment buildings. Working as the general contractor and asset manager for his portfolio, Matt has found his value-add appreciation and creative financing expertise.   Matt currently hosts a local real estate meetup and uses his free time to educate others on real estate investing. Being a part of multiple mastermind groups, reading investment books, and being a podcast buff, Matt views himself as a lifelong student.   Outline of the episode:   [02:40] What is cross-collateralization? [05:40] Introducing yourself to the tenants of your acquired property. [12:31] A significant factor people don't realize about multi and single-family acquisitions.

Episode:  127 Frank Scappaticci and John Plumstead of Greyline Investments Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guests Frank Scappaticci and John Plumstead as they share their unexpected success in the field of real estate. They'll talk about how they went from trying out property acquisition, deciding on wholesaling, attracting a handful of leads, and to what they now call their accidental company: Gray Line Investments.   John and Frank played as linebackers during their years of studying and eventually became active duty armies together. The two continued the ties even outside of duty when they got into real estate; while Frank was involved with single-family homes – John was into multifamily.   In this episode, listen as John and Frank show us the manner and tips that helped them scale their team and close fifty deals in the year 2020 – all despite the year's uncertainties and setbacks.    About Gray Line Investments:   A veteran-led and operated organization that places high importance on integrity and hiring top talent.

Episode: 126 Nelson Tressler Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Nelson Tressler, as they speak about how a man can succeed, on his own terms, despite struggles on top of struggles. Nelson's story gives testament to how we don't always have to end up the way we started, a lesson that many people may take through multiple different ways.   Getting held back in school with dyslexia was one challenge Nelson had to face; finishing college was another thing and a rather hard one for him to do. But after finishing college, Nelson grew the desire to overcome more of whatever life throws at him in his journey of emotional recovery and development; later on, he continued to become a broker, businessman, and author.   In this episode, Nelson imparts a handful of lessons on perception, the mindset your goals need, and what he thinks people can learn from if they want to move on to a better place in their lives – be it physical or mental. Nelson believes that our life is not our circumstances; it is what we do in those circumstances that make our lives.   About Nelson Tressler:   Nelson was born to a teenage mother in rural central Pennsylvania and has never known his biological father. He was the oldest of five children and grew up in poverty under an alcoholic and abusive stepfather.   Nelson lost track of the number of times that he went to bed hungry. Far from an idyllic childhood, Nelson worked on his uncle's garbage truck during the summer and holidays to help provide for his family. Once Nelson got his driver's license, a local construction company hired him to work until he graduated from high school.   In high school, Nelson was a three-sport athlete. He still holds several school records and was voted the most athletic member of his senior class. Once he graduated, he went on to play college football at St. Francis University.   After his freshman year of college, it was very evident that he could not afford to continue. He then joined the United States Air Force on the G.I. bill. He trained as an electronic and navigation technician on the E.F.–111 aircraft. Nelson served in Saudi Arabia and Turkey during his four years of military service.   He attended multiple universities during his service and received his associate's degree. After being honorably discharged from the Air Force, he attended the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. He started a window cleaning business to pay for school and support his young family.   After graduating with a Finance degree from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Nelson went to work for Grubb &; Ellis Commercial real estate. Nelson and his team were the top producing team in the nation on several occasions while working at Grubb & Ellis commercial real estate.   Newmark Grubb Knight Frank later purchased the company. Nelson has consistently been one of the nation's top-producing brokers, and his team has been the top-producing retail team in the Las Vegas market for an impressive 19 straight years. In 2008, Nelson was named to Las Vegas' prestigious "40 under 40" list.   He has personally developed commercial projects over $25 million. Additionally, during his 20+ year career, Nelson has brokered deals on behalf of his clients over $750 million.   Nelson has founded several successful businesses, including one of the largest chains of children's daycare centers in Las Vegas, which he sold for a profit. He is also the founder of one of the nation's largest privately held pet resorts he recently sold.   Nelson is currently acting as a partner in multiple business ventures ranging from tanning salons and family fun centers to a landscaping rock supplier. He is also involved in numerous real estate ventures, including apartment buildings and commercial real estate developments.   His team continues to be the top retail producing team for Newmark Grubb Knight Frank in Las Vegas, Nevada.   Outline of the episode:   [01:11] The backstory that inspired his book: The Unlucky Sperm Club. [06:58] Getting obsessed with achievements and chasing goals. [09:49] Your bane is someone else's luxury. [11:57] Nelson on his eye-opening experiences in the Air Force. [14:27] A philosophy worthy of hearing. [15:59] Nelson's professional career after college life. [19:04] Starting a business during the early stages of the pet care service industry. [25:11] Expose yourself to the things you want to get into – how to penetrate markets. [28:36] The type of deals that your broker would throw money in to. [29:59] I Got Smarter: The reason why I was born into these circumstances. [31:49] Where most of the problem lies when we are achieving goals. [35:33] It's a self-help book – The Unlucky Sperm Club. [37:35] Reflection is such a powerful thing. [39:30] An I Got Smarter App feature: Know what you want to accomplish! [45:59] On Addition by Subtraction: Do we always need to gain? [49:11] What is the greatest equalizer?   Advice to an 18-20-year old: Dream big, and realize that time is your most valuable resource!   Website:              https://nelsontressler.com/ https://igotsmarter.com/ Linkedin:              https://www.linkedin.com/in/nelson-tressler-75876590 Facebook:           https://www.facebook.com/nelson.tressler.5 Twitter: https://twitter.com/NelsonTressler   The Unlucky Sperm Club by Nelson L.

Episode: 124 Diya Liu Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest, Diya Liu, as they talk about how investing in short-term rentals got her from $0 - $100,000 of revenue in 13 months. Diya earned that from the units she owns, all while working as an attorney full-time.   In the household she grew up in, being an achiever was the goal. A good education in a prestigious school, finishing with flying colors, and getting into big-name companies were always believed to be the pathway to success. Instead of just following, she taught herself to take risks.   Diya now travels to different places, teaching people how to achieve financial freedom through her proven and tested methods. In this episode, we'll hear Diya's experience and approach to managing her vacation rentals, as well as the results of her redefinition of what success could be.   About Diya Liu:   Diya Liu helps real estate investing newbies and seasoned investors maximize their rental cash flow with vacation rentals. Diya came to the United States when she was eight years old. Her family of three lived in their mom's measly $1,000/month graduate student stipend.   Her journey to investing was not a straight path. Her parents raised her to believe that the equation to success equaled getting straight A's, going to a renowned college & grad school, and getting an excellent W2 job. Diya did just that, and she wasn't happy.   Diya double-majored in chemical engineering and biochemistry in college; she got a full-ride scholarship to law school, and she got a job at a prestigious white-shoe law firm in NYC upon graduating from law school.   Then she realized that she didn't want to work 9 AM to midnight for the rest of her career. After research, Diya found the financial independence movement and decided she wanted to be location independent too, not just financially independent!   She started investing in vacation rentals and got her first booking within 15 minutes of hitting publish. She had over 90% occupancy for the first month on Airbnb.   Since then, Diya quickly purchased more vacation rentals and achieved financial and location independence, giving her the freedom to travel the world.   Outline of the episode:   [02:20] The concept of success growing up. [03:28] On the golden handcuff syndrome and redefining her concept of success. [07:07] Contingency plans in the hospitality industry. [08:04] The yes and no's of people who have never done it. [10:31] Choosing places suitable for short-term rental investments. [19:28] Will your long-term rental property work well in the short-term? [21:48] Bad experiences with Airbnb and how to facilitate occupancies for guests. [26:46] Helpful technologies that support your property management. [30:00] What long-term rental is if up against short-term rentals. [30:44] The factors that contribute to an Airbnbs viability. [37:26] Understanding your competitors and your target's needs when choosing a property to convert into STRs (Short-term Rentals). [43:45] Owning a vacation home and making it earn for your future vacations.   Resources: - Advice to an 18-20-year old: Take more risk, and don’t just blindly follow your parents advice/plan - Recommended resource(s): Diya’s 1-hr short term rental (STR) course!   Website:              https://diyaliu.com/ Facebook:           https://www.facebook.com/DiyaESQ Twitter: https://twitter.com/diyaesq Instagram:          https://www.instagram.com/diyaesq/ Email:                    diyaliu@gmail.com   Follow our journey:   Blog:                      https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/ YouTube:             https://www.youtube.com/c/Frommilitarytomillionaire/ Facebook:           https://www.facebook.com/groups/1735593999901619/ Instagram:          https://www.instagram.com/frommilitarytomillionaire/ - Sponsor: Invest with us! https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/investors/ - Real Estate Investing Course: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/teachable-rei Recommended books and tools: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/kit/ Become an investor: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/investor/ - SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE - Website: https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/start-here/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/frommilitarytomillionaire/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/militarymillionaire/ - My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often.

From purchasing a townhouse to impress a girl, to becoming an expert in real estate investing and technology; he has definitely come a long way! He founded and built a landlord education business, Landlordology.com, which was acquired by Cozy in 2014 and by CoStar Group (Nasdaq: CSGP) in November 2018.

The moral of the story is that if diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then real estate is a close second!   Now, I have dozens of tenants, properties in three states, and a profitable portfolio. I counsel thousands of property managers every year, teaching them how to successfully manage their rentals, build wealth, and keep their tenants happy.   I spend only a few hours a month self-managing my properties with Cozy, which saves me $34,000 a year in property management fees.     Outline of the Episode: [01:54] House-hacking a six-bedroom townhouse to impress a girl.
