They can tell y ... "

" Once I was opened up to FortuneBuilders and all their systems I realized the mistakes that I was making so I was able to grow at a quick pace. You’re basically getting a Yale MBA of real estate investing in six months. "

" If you have a goal or passion to do anything in real estate, the education you’ll get at FortuneBuilders, there is nothing better than what you can accomplish with this education as well as saving yourself money and time. "

" When we first joined the program, I was skeptical. They got me out of my comfort zone and it was difficult at first, but as I started implementing the systems and saw they worked then I got excited. Now I’m gung ho. It’s exciting, especially when the phone rings. "

" To me FortuneBuilders is like real estate crossfit, you do the work, you show up they give you everything, you can transform yourself. "

" Never in my life have I ever envisioned myself as successful as I am now, in real estate. Because I never felt I had the capacity, but FortuneBuilders sees the potential in people and basically they rehab people. It’s the development of them and I’m happy that they saw what a gem I had inside of me, in order to succeed in my real estate career. "
