Ken & Rachael Wick: From Teachers To 225+ Units

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE ON:



Having worked as teachers for years, Ken and Rachael Wick first purchased a triplex and a duplex 20 years ago as a way to supplement their education salaries. Being educators, they understood the value of growing and educating themselves on their real estate investing journey, essentially getting their "2nd Master's Degrees". They have also focused on partnering with others further down the road to learn from them until they felt comfortable doing larger deals themselves. Fast forward to today, and Ken and Rachael own over 225 units in 3 states. They have also leveraged the power of cost segregation studies to bring additional cashflow into their properties through accelerated depreciation. What is equally important to their success is their desire to provide great quality housing to their tenants, their hearts to give back through their partnership with World Vision and their Doors2Donate Program, and spending time with their 6 children.

Why Syndications Are Great Options For Investors?

Are you looking for a way to invest in real estate much more passively without all the hassle of managing a property and executing on the strategy? A real estate syndication might be the perfect investment option for you. Let's discuss what real estate syndications are and why they're a great choice for passive investors.

 

What is a Syndication?

In simple terms, a syndication is a group investment in a real estate property. It allows a group of investors to pool their money together to invest in a property (known as limited partners), while one or more real estate professionals manage the property and execute a strategy (known as general partners). Investors who join syndication get to enjoy the benefits of investing in real estate without having to be actively involved in the management of the property.

 

Types Of Syndications

Because a syndication is a selling of a security, the IRS wants to make sure that things are set-up property. Without going too...

Conor Kelly: Plumber To Tiktok Star w/57 Closings In 1 Year

 LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE ON:



As a plumber, Conor Kelly was making over 100k/yr, but wasn't able to live the life that he wanted. He decided to get his real estate license and committed to doing 2 Tiktoks per day for 2 years and has now turned that into 30k+ followers and 57 transactions in his first year of real estate. He now manages and coaches a team of 25 agents in the Vancouver area on how to do that same and is the host of the Big Deal Real Estate Podcast.

This allows him to make great use of his time and connect with thousands of people vs cold calling people one at a time. He talks about how he's able to attract a younger audience and how he's gotten to quality on his social media posts because of the large quantity of content first.

Renting Your Home for Film Shoots: The Little Known Lucrative Real Estate Niche With Big Profit Potential & Little Competition

What if you could rent your home for $300+/hr instead of $200/day? When you think about renting out your home, most people think of short-term rentals like Airbnb or VRBO. Have you ever considered renting out your home for film shoots? Film shoot rentals are a vastly untapped reservoir of opportunity that carries several unique benefits over both long term traditional real estate investing and AirBNB short-term rentals.

Josh Lawlor, the Founder of The Film Shoot Rental Roadmap, makes thousands of *tax free* dollars per day by renting his home for shoots, without the hassles that accompany other real estate methods. In fact, he made over $50,000 in his first 6 months!

 LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE ON:



Growing up in a family that did fix & flips and buy & hold properties, Alison Alston saw the benefits of real estate investing at an early age and how it can open up opportunities for generational wealth. However, she didn't pursue that path right out of college and ended up becoming very successful working in the Northeast in education and donor relations. Not wanting to travel all the time for her job, Alison moved to Charlotte, NC, and decided to get her real estate license.

She found an amazing team that fit her well. In fact, after 2 years as an agent on the team, an opportunity opened up for her to purchase that team. She now owns and operates Lodestone Real Estate, which was recently named #15 in the 2023 RealTrends rankings for the largest real estate teams in the county. A big part of her business is working with investors through some large iBuyer programs she runs in her area - iAgent Offer and Shop Cash Offers. We discuss...

The 3 Key People You Need To Build Your Real Estate Investment Team
