Why Real Estate?
Throughout my life I keep going back to real estate because I love it. Selling mortgages and real estate is where I started right out of college, over 20 years ago. Throughout my career I have found that I can have the most positive impact on my clients by focusing on “wealth building” through real estate. Combining my business and real estate knowledge to focus on wealth building, allows me to utilize state-of-the-art marketing, business structure, finance and tax strategies to help my clients reach their goals. Whether it is by investing in a home, in business real estate, or income producing properties, I firmly believe that to maximize your wealth, real estate needs to be in your portfolio.
Here are three real examples from my clients:
- A business client used the equity that he had amassed in his home to expand his business, just before the real estate market started the downturn. His business is now more successful and he is diversifying his income by investing in income producing real estate. He truly stabilized his wealth and was able to take advantage of both the high and low ends of the real estate market.
- A business owner teamed with an investor to develop a new commercial facility, in a prime location for his business. The business owner is a 50% owner in the real estate project. Now, as he pays rent (which would have been a lost expense), he is building wealth through appreciation of the property and through the personal tax advantages of real estate ownership. As an added bonus, he now has the best possible location for his business.
- A highly paid engineer had amassed significant wealth in his 401k, stocks and bonds; he had never invested in real estate with the exception of his home. He realized that the one real estate investment he had made returned substantially more than his other investments. He also realized that the real estate investment was much less volatile than his stocks and bonds, even with the market downturn. He has gone on to purchase two investment properties that both return positive cash flow, while they appreciate. He is reaping the rewards of proper ownership structure and personal tax savings; he is now truly maximizing his wealth.
These real examples of success include real estate investment strategies that I can help you employ. My real estate and business experience has provided me a unique wealth of knowledge that I honestly love to share. Whether you are buying your first home, moving up, want business real estate, or need to structure a real estate investment strategy or deal, I have the “experience you can bank on”.
