5 secrets to SUCCEED with investors

DON’T do this if you want 7 figures

DON’T do this if you want 7 figures

🚀 2021 was the first year I hit 7 figures from a single business entity - AGENTS INVEST. Prior to Agents Invest, I was close, earning $700k - $800k a year in just one of my businesses. But 7-figs was a big milestone for me.  It's taken a lot of "figuring things out" on my own. So I wanted to share some mistakes I've learned from over the past 13 years:     1️⃣ Spend 24/7 working Most people think that the only way to make extra income is to work MORE. This is absolutely false! You'll only run yourself ragged and become unmotivated to keep working.    2️⃣ Do everything yourself Every agent should at MINIMUM have a transaction coordinator and eventually bring on a full-time admin. Each additional team…

[JULY NEWS] What’s trending in real estate?

[JULY NEWS] What’s trending in real estate?

Finally, we're starting to see a cooldown on the housing market.  And agents are getting some breathing room. Now that the era of 25+ offers on one property is over, the next question is … what should you be doing?  🤔 Even though the housing market is cooling down on offers, there's still PLENTY of work to do. ⏰ Now is the time to follow up with sellers who had previously unrealistic prices and see if they're willing to sell.  It's also the time to check in with your investor clients and update them on any current market conditions and deals. Remind them the benefits of buying NOW. I believe we'll have a 6-12 month window before the market takes off again.  Have a client in mind?  Reach out to…

Do you own investment properties?

Do you own investment properties?

Did you know that 5% of agents ACTUALLY own investment properties? 🧐 Odd when you think about it.   Agents KNOW the value of real estate and sell it for a living. So why aren't more of them investing? 🤔 Here's what I'm thinking:  They prefer the larger, one-time commission checks. Not the smaller, monthly recurring revenues.  They plan short-term, not long-term.  They're too busy working in their business, they don't work ON their business. The list goes on.  Some don't see the benefits of it, others are not educated enough on it.  But check out the power of investing with ONE deal alone. 👇🏼 6-unit in Tennessee Purchased for $415,000 Private lender funded $385,000 Total out of pocket $30,000 down payment + $30,000 renovations Refinance new value $530,000 New loan…

Tax benefits of hiring your children

Tax benefits of hiring your children

Do you have a child that you'd like to set up for financial success?  Financial intelligence is crucial to learn. Unfortunately, it's hardly taught in traditional education. And, with the way our economy fluctuates, it can be a scary thing to think about as a parent.  It's why I took it upon myself to teach my 7-year-old daughter and set her up for financial success at a young age. Here are 4 ways I've helped her understand finances, while also getting tax benefits, and you can too:    1️⃣ Paying her $12k through MY real estate business.  That's right- if you've got a business and a child, you can pay them a salary of up to $12,550 per year for LEGITIMATE WORK.

Real Estate 10 Years From Now…

Real Estate 10 Years From Now…

Think today's real estate prices are high? Imagine what they will look like in 10 years. 😧 Since inflation is at a 40-year high and interest rates are increasing, a lot of newer investors are pulling back because of uncertainty.  But seasoned investors know there's no better time than today, right now, to purchase real estate. 📈 It's inflation 101: The value of the dollar isn't what it used to be and will continue to change. Because over time, you can't DO as much with it.  So even with today's "high" interest rates and "high" real estate prices, in 20 years, these numbers will look like a bargain.  This also means that real estate will almost always turn over a profit (if kept under decent conditions) since it will appreciate…
