"All my life my family and friends had an opinion and usually it was negative because they thought they were protecting me..." Even after being very successful as an investor for more than 10 years, they still asserted that I should be careful and their advice was in my best interest even though they had never invested in anything. Now I only take advice from people that started with nothing and don't have to worry about money. If I want to pursue financial freedom through real estate, I don't contact a local real estate agent. I call someone who is a full time investor and acheived their dream.
Los Angeles Investment Club is part of a group of 250 people who come together to do something much bigger than they could do on their own. We appraise the properties, make the offers, estimate the repairs, assign our own workers to do the repairs and have our own in house property managers find and screen the tenants, collect the rents and handle the evictions. Currently, we're buying about 2-10 houses and thousands of notes every week.
Our Club Manager, Daniel Nase, MBA, is a Real Estate Appraiser, and has 16 years of experience investing in real estate, notes and the market. He is financially retired and enjoys helping people acheive financial freedom. Daniel has worked for other people buying and selling companies, raising venture capital and preparing companies to become publically traded. He has experience with auctions, repos, flips and short sales and using statistics to value real estate and pick the best notes.
