What’s your experience with other real estate education programs?
“The bad thing about Real Estate Education is the amount of miseducation. There are a lot of gurus’ that go out and tell everybody how to invest in real estate. But some of them should be charged with criminal negligence. They are telling people how to do things that haven’t been done since the 80’s. And they are talking about it still being alive today.” ….. “I was at a seminar….they were talking about to do a certain transaction in a fix and flip that by FBI definition and US Treasury definition today is illegal.”
What does it take to be a Successful Real Estate Investor?
“The unique thing about real estate is it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to be a real estate agent. It takes one of two things. You spend 30 years going through the school of hard knocks like I did, or you take a little bit of time and get some quality real estate education that explains the fundamentals which have not changed at all and then touch on the realities of today’s world to you and you quickly get brought up to speed and then you just go out and replicate the process. To many services are selling you from boot camp to boot camp or some over priced products to another over priced product and their not really concerned with educating you in real estate”
Why do you teach for Renatus?
“#1 they teach the students to do real estate right. #2 they provide a real environment that gives the students a reality based education and #3 by in large its a no BS program, their not trying to sell you on anything extra, their trying to tell you what it takes to be successful and give you support and tools you need to go do it.”
What’s your history with Renatus CEO, Bob Snyder?
…. “Bob came across as a pretty straight up guy, he’s always come across as an upfront guy. When Bob tells he he’ll do something, Bob lives up to his word.” … “I feel like Bob is a good guy to work with. I am not worried about tarnishing my reputation working with Bob like I am with some other people.”
