Steve & I Discuss

  • Commodities Trader turned Real Estate Guy
  • Perspective from Operating in 9 Major U.S. Markets
  • Mitigating Risk When Flipping in Challenging Areas
  • Stepping Up Volume as a Fix & Flip Investor


From Commodities to Real Estate

Steve Werner originally started out as a Commodities Trader then Hard Money Lender before landing with DAWGS.  In this episode, Steve and talk about how to find profitable fix & flip opportunities in a tight real estate market where much of the inventory needing repairs is being snapped up by owner occupants willing to do the work and live there.  There is still TONS of inventory available in many cities, especially where I’m currently flipping houses:  Atlanta, Philadelphia, & Chicago.  That huge inventory, just like any investment, does present some risk.  Steve and I discuss exactly how to deal with many of those risks to ensure the house comes out retail ready in the end.

I Discuss

  • How to Access Deals with ZERO Competition
  • Developing VIP Buyer Relationships with Agents & Wholesalers
  • How to Buy Deals & Build the “Inside Track”
  • Deal Killing & Relationship Killing Mistakes to Avoid (for Buyers)


Thousands of Off Market Deals

I’ve been buying off market deals since 2006 and have since closed well over 1,000 myself.  During that time, I’ve been on both sides of the deal:  the wholesaler (similar to the agent’s position) and the buyer (the one fixing & flipping).  Here’s the back story: I always dreamed of fixing & flipping houses-ever since I was a little kid on my dad’s job sites.  I used to be his helper-first he was the electrician on other investors’ flips & new builds, then he was the investor on the flips.  In a similar way, when I got into the real estate business, I first began by wholesaling deals to investors with the money to close, then eventually I became the buyer myself. 


When I was wholesaling, I saw how many deals were sold to buyers a single time-then never again would we cross paths.  And then there were a few buyers who became repeat buyers, getting a phone call or text on deals before anyone else in the world knew it existed-before the email or any craigslist ads were posted.  Those repeat buyers had a specific strategy for developing that relationship with me.


So when I became the buyer myself, I looked back over my experiences as a wholesaler and made sure I behaved the way the repeat buyers behaved with me.  Why?  Well I was interested in created relationships with the agents and wholesalers who still bring me deals to this day.  So I created this extra special REI Diamonds Show episode to give you, the wholesaler, the agent, or the buyer interested in repeat business spanning years, the roadmap to create these VIP relationships to do repeat deals in your market.   Ready to check it out?

Analyzing the Data from More than 4 Million Properties

Real estate has been a passion of mine for about 20 years now and it’s allowed me to do things and live a life I never thought was possible. I’ve also come to realize that it can give ANYONE the leverage to BE anyone they wanted to be, DO anything they ever wanted to do and HAVE anything they want by using real estate as their vehicle, regardless of their level of passion. I’m about helping other unlock that potential that they’ve yet to realize they have and break their believes that you have to have money to make money, be educated/smart, or have a license to make money in real estate.”
