With These Tools You Can Really Do Anything That’s Possible In Real Estate
Daniel Riegel – Galatia, Illinois
I believe the best way to learn the business of real estate investing is to hear how others have done it.
When these interviews were recorded, I asked Tom, the interviewer, to ask questions that would help the viewer see how these folks got started.
I wanted to hear the struggles, the successes and a clear path and explanation of what they had to do to make these deals happen.
I did NOT want them to be a bunch of people telling you how wonderful Joe Crump was. I wanted content, examples and real life experiences.
I hope we succeeded.
My 6 month mentor program:
A few Case Study Video Interviews with my Students:
“With These Tools You Can Really Do Anything That’s Possible In Real Estate “
Daniel: My name is Daniel Riegel. I’m from Galatia, Illinois. I heard about Joe’s program when I was researching about lease options. I bought and sold properties at the time. I was renovating a house and trying to figure out how to sell it whenever the market wasn’t so good. I’ve been a real estate investor for almost nineteen years now. I joined Joe’s program about a year ago.
Daniel: My first deal I did in about a month and it was a $5,000 payoff. You know, that deal probably took about ten hours, to be honest with you.
Daniel: I’d say probably, you know, a few hours with the buyers, a few hours with the listing, maybe thirty minutes with the sellers. The best deal I’ve done so far is, it’s really hard to narrow it down because I’ve helped so many people. So, the best deals to me are not necessarily the ones that made me the most money, but that helped the most people.
Daniel: Using Joe’s tools to do this, it’s helped me not only improve and enhance my own life, but to add value to other people’s lives, to get them what they need in order to move forward in their life.
Daniel: You know, I’ve been a real estate investor for almost nineteen years. The first part of real estate investing I was more concerned about myself, the money I was making, putting the deal together. Since I met Joe he’s showed me how I can add value to other people’s lives and to really enhance their lives which makes me more money in the long run, but it’s more beneficial to help people. So, my business is set up now that the more people I help the more money I make.
Daniel: The way I help people the most now is I am able to get them path to home ownership so they can start straightening out their lives and working towards a goal. I find that most people’s credit is a little bit low because of silly things. Medical bills, cell phone, direct TV, something, it’s just really hurting their credit which hurts every part of their life because everybody pulls credit these days. Even though credit is not who you are, that’s what people look at for insurance, for everything. So, the better your credit score is the lower your bills are, usually.
Daniel: I help people, I give them suggestions for how they can improve their credit, how they can enhance it, better their lives, so, you know, I’ve studied a lot about credit and I’ve done a lot with credit. So, most people don’t understand credit, how it works, how to get things off of their credit that’s not supposed to be on there, that’s maybe not even theirs. So I help them to do that.
Daniel: The average income for the deals that I do, it varies so much because I use every aspect and every tool possible. Mostly between $3,000 and $10,000. As of this year, I sell at least one house a week and I buy one house for myself every two weeks. My goals have evolved since I’ve met Joe and I’ve joined his program. I’m more interested in helping people now and as a byproduct I make quite a bit more money.
Daniel: This has completely changed my life. Night and day. Black and white. Now I’m focused on helping other people instead of just helping myself. At the end of the day it’s more beneficial to help people. I do sleep better knowing that I’m improving other people’s lives and adding value. That is a big difference.
Daniel: I am getting back into automation. Tomorrow one of the focuses of being up here is to learn how to automate my business. So Joe’s going to personally show me how to outsource and automate every aspect of my business. Automating my business will help me be organized. It will save me a lot of time. So I might make more money, but the most important thing is that I’ll be able to recoup most of my time.
Daniel: When you automate the business it handles a lot of the aspects, the time wasting things, that you might normally do. It brings more leads in, they fill out a lot of the information online, they can educate themselves with a lot of the information that’s already there, so you don’t have to spend as much time going through every part of it because it’s there. They can read it and they can figure it out themselves.
Daniel: Well, you don’t need much money using Joe’s techniques, if any. I’ve done zero down deals, some of the best deals that I’ve ever done have involved no money of my own. No money whatsoever, actually. So, if I was talking to someone that wanted to do this I would explain to them how it’s changed my life and how it’s improved my life and how they can have the tools to improve other people’s lives. With these tools you can really do everything that’s possible in real estate.
Daniel: I’m thankful that I met Joe. It really, literally, changed my life. I’ve, I’m a better person for meeting Joe and for him showing me how to help other people.
