Tim Bratz is the Owner and President of CLE Turnkey Real Estate, a real estate business that buys, renovates and holds apartment buildings and short-term vacation rentals in Ohio, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia. Tim founded the company when he realized the long-term benefits of holding a solid real estate investment versus being on the sales side as a commercial real estate agent

As a former real estate agent, Tim already had valuable knowledge as to how the real estate industry works. You locate a property, look for a buyer, and receive a commission when the papers are all signed. Tim quickly identified that being the owner of the property was the path to establishing true wealth. He set his sights on the multifamily industry when he learned that apartment owners earn thousands of dollars a month passively.

His quest for success as a full time real estate investor started with the cheapest property he could find and a maxed out credit card. Tim sought out mentors, developed a plan and now owns 1,175 rental units with a portfolio values estimate at $85,000,000.

In this episode, Tim talks about his career before he became a full-time investor, who inspired him to become an apartment investor, the challenges he faced along the way and how the first deal changed his life forever.

Thank you Tim for taking the time to share your success story and expert advice on apartment investing.

Tom Cafarella is a real estate investor, speaker, and the owner of Ocean City Development, a real estate firm that puts the needs of their clients first. Before becoming a real estate investor, Tom was on track to becoming a doctor, a profession he chose because it was the most lucrative at the time.

 

Tom was focused on completing his medical degree when he picked up Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” audio book. He realized that his career path in medicine wasn’t the right fit for him. Tom quickly pivoted, changed degrees and turned his attention to business and accounting. His post college accounting career path was short lived when he was fired for daydreaming (researching real estate). Tom jumped into the real estate game and began taking massive action to make ends meet.

 

In this episode, Tom shares the story about his entrepreneur’s journey into the real estate industry and the many obstacles that he had to overcome along the way. He drills into why it’s important to do what you love and why you shouldn’t lie to yourself when it comes to choosing a career. Tom reveals his tricks to finding qualified sellers as well as provides examples of how to always stay one step ahead of the competition.

 

Five Key Points:

  1. The harder the task, the less competition you will have.
  2. The first step in a new venture is always the hardest.
  3. Our number one job as investors is to find opportunities and take advantage of them.
  4. There's no direct career path to real estate investing and that is why guidance from a mentor is necessary.
  5. Most new investors make the mistake of having a preconceived notion of what it should take to get a good deal

 

Pro tip:

  • Prioritize your time and complete the hardest task for the day first.

Mark Podolsky is known as the Land Geek, a title he’s earned for focusing his business on raw land investing. He’s been in the business for over 16 years and has completed over 5,000 land deals with an amazing average ROI of 300% on cash flips, and more than 1000% on deals sold with financing terms. This is quite the achievement if you consider the first deal he made in 2001 was worth only $3000.

Mark says his reason for getting into investing was to simply escape the rat race. Prior to his current business, he was trapped in a state of “no work, no pay” status. Top that with high amounts of stress and not having enough “me” time, Mark knew he had to find a way out fast. Now Mark barely works 5 hours a week, and has created his business in such a way that not only is it mostly automated, but also manned by a great team with the same vision he possesses.

Thank you Mark for taking the time to share your expertise on raw land investing with us.

Jay Conner has been in the real estate industry for over 14 years and is known as an expert in private lending. He has over $52 million worth of real estate transactions under his belt and runs a fully automated business, allowing him to manage his company working not more than ten hours a week, earning no less than a seven figure income.

Jay’s road to becoming a private lending expert started when the bank cut him off during the crash of 2008. Desperate to salvage deals, he was forced to learn how to raise private funds less than two weeks after being cut off. He did his research and was able to create a system that combined the best aspects of all that he learned. His ordeal became a blessing in disguise in the end, as his system was able to raise over $2 million in less than 90 days in private funds, stating the first person he approached handed over $250,000 in private money. It blew him away to realize that his system worked the way it did and raising private money wasn’t entirely complicated as he imagined.

Needless to say, his private funding accomplishment has only helped his career reach new heights and to this day, Jay credits the banker who cut him off.

Five Key Points:

  1. The number one thing that keeps real estate investors from moving forward is not having the funding for the deals.
  2. Private money puts you in control.
  3. The most dangerous number in any business is one: having eggs only in one basket.
  4. Only 13% of for sale by owners will sell in some creative way, the other 87% just want all the money.
  5. The great thing about private money is you can use it for commercial investments too.

Thank you Jay for taking the time to share your expertise on private money with us.

Aloha from Honolulu! Lane Kawaoka is a city project engineer and professional engineer by trade. Since he possesses that engineer’s mindset, Lane decided to apply it to a career in real estate.

Lane's passion project is called Simple Passive Cash Flow. He's a mentor who helps his clients get started in and navigate the tricky world of real estate investing. Lane partners with investors who are busy professionals like engineers, lawyers and doctors who want to get into the real estate game but don't lack the time and expertise to understand all of the intricacies of the real estate investing world.

Real estate is like an intense cross fit workout – you have to “chip away at it” and you will be successful.

 Cash flow markets versus Appreciation markets:

  • Appreciation markets are defined by Rental Value Ratio, which is the monthly rent divided by the cost of the home. The appreciation areas or primary markets are places where everybody wants to live. When demand is high what happens is the rental value ratios get pushed down.
  • Cash flow markets like Birmingham, AL, Atlanta, GA Indianapolis, IN, Kansas City, MO and Memphis, TN don't experience explosive appreciation. However these markets guarantee enough cash flow to replace your working income, giving you the freedom to do what you want.

Pro Tip: Building an effective network – your net worth is your network. Always be adding value to others.

The 3-Question approach towards achieving financial freedom:

  • What do you want? What do you want in life with your health? What do you want with your money and your investing? What do you want from the relationships in your family?
  • Why do you want it/why does it matter? For clarity, you have to know the reason why do you want it and what do you want.
  • Who do you need to become in order to get what you want? Customize and design processes and systems get you to where you want to go.

Pro Tip: Set a target and be crystal clear about what you want in the next quarter, the next six months, or the next year.

Over the last 15 years Ike has spent time as co-founder, president and CTO in a variety of startups and turnaround companies. He’s originally from India where he attended the University of Bombay, India and earned his BE degree. Ike also has a MS degree in Engineering from the University of Cincinnati.

Ike is an active commercial real estate investor and multifamily syndicator. In his downtime you will find Ike pursuing his newfound passion for mountain climbing, having recently started training for technical climbs on rock cliffs.

The 3X advantages of syndication versus single-family investment:

1) Risk diversification is much better in a ten-unit apartment building versus three single-family houses.

2) Economies of scale is better in terms of net income. The more net income allows you to hire property managers, allowing you to focus your time and energy on further investments.

3) Value appreciation - you have the ability to force appreciation with creative strategies to increase rent and overall income and push the value of your properties.

Favorite quote: “When you want something really, really bad and you take the action to achieve it, the universe comes together to help you achieve it.” The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho.
