    Yonah Weiss – Saving Thousands on Taxes Using Cost Segregation

    “Let’s say you had a $200,000 income and you had $100,000 of deductions, well, instead of paying taxes on $200,000, you’re now only paying taxes on $100,000. That creates a net, real cash value of how much you would have had to pay in taxes, and that's pretty significant. Again, over $500,000 is like ten x-ing your money!"  - Yonah Weiss

    I’m joined this week by Yonah Weiss, a Business Director at Madison SPECS, a national real estate cost segregation leader. While at Madison, Yonah has assisted clients in saving tens of millions of dollars on real estate taxes through cost segregation.

    Yonah started with a background in teaching and found himself looking for something new just a few years ago. In his search for a career change, he discovered a multitude of opportunities in the real estate investing industry.

    Yonah joins me on today’s show to fully break down what cost segregation means and how it could save real estate investors loads of capital.

    John Fortes - How a College Basketball Referee Invested $70 Million In Multifamily

    “You mean to tell me that if I invest in one offering, I'm diversified? And, on top of that, I'm only sitting down and looking at it one time? Alright, cool, let me see the newsletters and distributions after that because I'm pretty much sold on that aspect!"  - John Fortes

    I’m joined this week by John Fortes, Managing Director of The Fortes Company, a multifamily private equity investment firm. Looking for a passive income while refereeing high-level NCAA basketball games led John to dabbling in real estate investing. John wanted to be able to have more flexibility to referee what games he wanted, when he wanted, as well as to spend more time with his beautiful wife and children.

    Fast forward a couple of years, and the Fortes Company has helped families invest in more than $70 million in multifamily investments that’s allowed them to secure financial security, preserve and grow their wealth, as well as compound investments as they achieve their financial independence.

    John joins me on today’s show to take me on his real estate journey and speak on the differences between real estate investment funds and syndications.

    Jacob Ayers - How a First Rental Property Was Purchased at 25 Years Old

    Jacob Ayers - How a First Rental Property Was Purchased at 25 Years Old

    “I wanted to build up enough cash flow to achieve financial freedom so that I could live life on my own terms. What that meant for me was, eventually getting to a point where I could replace my 'earned' income with 'passive' income, and the key to that, for me, was through cash-flow investment properties.”   - Jacob Ayers

    I’m joined this week by multifamily real estate investor, Jacob Ayers. After earning a degree in Fire Protection and Safety Engineering at Oklahoma State University, Jacob headed to Houston, Texas, and dove into the corporate world. It didn’t take him long to realize that going to college and getting a good job was not all it was made out to be. He wanted more financial freedom, fewer KPI’s, and an escape from the nine-to-five.

    At the young age of 25, Jacob started his real estate investing journey, buying his first rental property and quickly after, transitioning into buying small multifamily properties.

    Jacob joins me on today’s show to take me on his journey of becoming a young multifamily real estate investor, all while juggling a day job.

    * NOTE - I had some microphone challenges in this episode, so please forgive the couple of instances of muffled audio - all part of the learning curve. 

    The thing is, when I talk about building "wealth," I'm talking about more than just money. I'm talking about mindset and your mental outlook; I'm talking about your spiritual health; and I'm talking about how much time you have in your life – for your family, for yourself, or to just do the things you want to do.

    Never be afraid to encounter challenges - this is where we do our most significant growing. 

    And never let perfectionism keep you from making progress and building wealth!

    Scott Maurer - How to Invest in Real Estate Tax Free with a Self-Directed IRA

    Scott Maurer - How to Invest in Real Estate Tax Free with a Self-Directed IRA

    “A self-directed IRA just means that it's a retirement account. It's a tax-deferred retirement account where you can control exactly what you want to invest in rather than being limited by a bank or a brokerage firm.”  - Scott Maurer

    We’re switching things up just a little bit this week and talking about one funding stream in particular for your real estate investments. My guest works with many of my current clients and helps them to better understand how a “self-directed IRA” can help them invest in passive real estate deals like multifamily properties.
    As a Certified IRA Services Professional and the director of business development at Advanta IRA, (and a lawyer by degree) Scott Maurer, also spends much of his time educating others on the ins-and-outs of self-directed IRAs and on what Advanta can do to help them make the right decisions when it comes to the IRS code. 
    Scott joins me today to discuss some of those rules and explains how investing with a self-directed IRA is a great tax-free investing option.

    Brian Briscoe - Marine to Multifamily

    “He literally put his hand on my shoulder, and he's like, 'Brian, you don't need to be doing that...just find a partner and go big.' I'll use the seventh grade dance analogy, you now, your first dance in the seventh grade. There's a couple people in the middle dancing and everybody else is standing on the wall. That conversation basically took me from the wall to the dance floor.”  - Brian Briscoe

    I’m joined this week by a dedicated Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel-turned-real estate investor, Brian Briscoe. Brian has served our country for nearly twenty years in the Marine’s, is co-founder of the multifamily investment firm Four Oaks Capital, and also has his own podcast, Diary of an Apartment Investor, which brings an experienced and an aspiring investor together on each episode.
