I felt it appropriate to dive a little deeper into who I am, what I have done, and how it can help you in your business. With so many so-called “gurus” out there, it can be a bit overwhelming, as well as cliche. Most of these gurus in real estate investing are in it solely for themselves, and the mainstream of their business is probably seminars, book selling, CD and DVD sales than it is real experience in the field.
Now, don’t get me wrong here. Some of the guys out there do have a solid background in real estate, and may know what they are talking about. But you have to pay large sums of money to get their training courses and help, whereas if you stick with me, the Real Estate Geek, you are going to get solid tips and personal experiences of myself, in the field, working to build a business. So why would I give the information to you for free?
The Value Exchange Between You and the Real Estate Geek
It’s simple. I want to build business relationships. I also want to make money. So, with realestategeek.net, I wanted to create an invaluable resource to help you learn and gather experience and training to help you get your business off the ground. So, I am willing to give the information away, in exchange for gaining relationships in the field, and then I will offer a series of software systems in order to save you time and build efficiency in your business. I will charge for these unique software systems.
This is a great opportunity for you to build up a business you can be proud of, but as you are building profits, you will start to notice, as I did, that your time becomes very limited. And as you time becomes limited, you will begin to seek systems and automation that will save you time and further your business. This is where my software systems will come in to play.
My Real Estate Experience
OK, so that was a long winded explanation of my plans for realestategeek.net. Now to my experience; I started in real estate back in 2003, and have been an investor and property manager in the Belton / Temple / Killeen area of Texas. At the time of this article, I own a few houses myself, and manage about a dozen units / properties (including my own). So I know a thing or two about investing and dealing with tenants, etc.
I had planned to be further along by now, but my incessant drive to get out of a job an on my own in business prompted an exit of my job back in late 2007. This left me with little available cash to get into new properties. However, through strategic planning and alignment, I have been able to get stakes in other properties since that time.
So just sit back, relax, and stay tuned to realestategeek.net for a fantastic education in real estate investing and property management, and superior online tools you can use to further your real estate business.
