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.”

Matt is the host of the Alt Investments Podcast which features experts in Real Estate, Crypto Currency, Gold & Silver, Start Ups, and Technology. He is also an expert speaker on topics concerning apartment building investing, sales and sales motivation, and identifying undervalued properties.

Chris Prefontaine is a bestselling author and real estate investor with over
26 years of experience in the field, including 18 years as a builder, realtor,
broker/owner and investor.. He’s always been an entrepreneur even when
he didn’t know it. When he used to drag his wagon up to the street corner
and sell junk from his closet or when he used to purchase gum by the pack
and sell by the slice in middle school.
In 1991, Chris began building homes and built 100 homes before starting
his own brokerage. He then become a broker/owner and was selling 100
homes a year with his small team. Since the 2008 debacle he realized he
needed to reinvent his business so that he no longer had to use his own
money or credit.
Aer years of coaching independently, Chris founded Smart Real Estate

their business throughout the US and Canada- all without using their cash
or credit. Chris and his team, which includes his kids, have done over $80
million in real estate transactions. They mentor, coach, consult and have
Associates around the country doing exactly what they do. On top of that,
they run their own buying and selling business so they’re in the trenches
every single week. Between their existing Associates around the Country
and their own deals, they’re still doing 5-10 properties every month and
control as of now between $20 million -$25 million of real estate with little
to no money down
“I learned much about home design from my dad who was an architect, which helped me develop a passion for the business. I began my career as a Senior Project Manager at Ahmanson Developments in the 1980s and provided financing to major developers, locally and nationally. I evaluated business practices, observed winners and losers, and achieved an insider’s perspective regarding real estate management. I served as Vice President of Cambridge Homes where I helped develop new products, managed marketing and sales, and increased profits and grew annual sales making Cambridge the largest builder in Chicago. My experience also includes serving as President of Westfield Homes, quickly turning the company’s operating losses into profits. I joined with Buz Hoffman in the late 1990s as Executive Vice President of Lakewood Homes. Benefiting from a career involving experience within all aspects of the industry, I participated in Lakewood’s growth as it became a top Chicago-area builder with annual closings beyond 1,700 units and profits higher than industry averages.”
