My Victories... I had always had a passion for real estate, construction/rehab and a huge desire and love of Marketing which I had been surrounded with in the corporate world for over 17 years....so I wrapped all of my "loves" together and I started my own business in June of 2012. This came together for me after attending a FortuneBuilders Seminar and becoming part of the Mastery Program and later the InnerCircle Program. This was victory #1....stepping out of my box and doing what I love! Victory #2....finding an outstanding educational Family to lead me down the right path in accomplishing my goals....FORTUNEBUILDERS! Victory #3 came about in an interesting twist of fate. My first deal came to me by having the courage to jump right out there and get things going. I picked up a property that was first being pushed for $15k, but after negotiating and talking with the Owner I was able to get the price down to $7k....but this gets better...because as I was learning the proper techniques and in's and out's of negotiating with FortuneBuilders I decided to go with my gut, continued networking with the Owner and the Owner told me to wait and I could possibly pick it up cheaper at an Auction she was planning on having. I did so and low and behold after some negotiating and sticking firm I picked the property up for $1500.00 + closing costs. Yes, I did not forget a zero here! Unbelievable! The building, which I will be demoing, and then either leasing the land or building upon it sits on a 60' x 200' commercial lot in a great corner spot. I couldn't ask for anything better. Victory #4 The Auctioneer from my Victory #3 purchase lead me to an old building just down the street that needed loads of work but it had great potential. He connected me with the Owner and the price was set at $55k. I negotiated down to $50k, but felt it was definitely work even $75k at the time. Owner was a little pushy and as I was trying to pull my monies together for the purchase and rehab I felt extremely rushed and just not right so I decided to walk from the opportunity. If it was meant to be then it would come back. Roughly six(6) months pass and I get a call back from the Owner. He had tried to sell the property on his own and was going to do an Auction, which I do not believe he ever did. In either case, he wanted to see if I was still interested. Negotiated the price down to $20k! It was absolutely crazy! I joint ventured with some Partners and a Lender and we accomplished a beautiful rehab that is now on the market. This is my Victory #5! My first rehab on a 2-story above grade commercial building featuring 4221 SF with 9 offices, 2 lobbies/waiting rooms, 2 restrooms, 2 kitchenettes on the first and second floor with an additional 1583 SF in the basement which has been completely gutted and ready to be customized for the new Owner. Victory #6 is a small country home that I am currently renovating! It is a lovely little home with peaceful surroundings. My goal is to utilize this property as my first buy and hold rental. It is definitely coming together. There have been many more Victories along the way but the above are just some of my major milestones. I have learned a great deal overall and I owe much thanks to FortuneBuilders for teaching me to get out there and get started. The tools that we are given to work with and learn from are priceless with FortuneBuilders. I encourage everyone to stick with it, stay strong and keep working at it! Build yourself a knockout awesome Team and keep educating yourself. Success with come! "Go forth a conqueror and win great victories." ~Virgil
