Creative Ways To Thrive In Real Estate After This Pandemic With Laurie Patterson
Today, Martine is joined by Laurie Patterson, who started out as a realtor and then she ventured into entrepreneurship. She thinks what’s coming is going to be worse than the recession in 2008 if we continue with this lockdown. Laurie reminds us that depending on how you've positioned yourself well determined whether this recession will be a liability or an opportunity for you.
Laurie encourages everyone to dive into your market and find out what’s going on and be willing to pivot. Your willingness to change your strategy to match what you need is the only way to survive. She stresses to each of us to not spend your time worrying about what you lost.
Laurie stresses some things we must know during this time:
1.) You can’t predict when the market will crash. You better have those cash reserves so you’re not sweating it, at least 6 months.
2.) Since the unemployment rate has jumped to an all-time high there will be opportunities in "subject to, owner finance, and lease options" coming soon.
3.) Do not just have the purchase agreement, you have to have power of attorney, you should have a financial statement pulled out by the homeowner and ask them about the house and their financials. You do not want to take a sub to when there’s a potential of them filing a bankruptcy in the next 3-5 years.
4.) Start marketing to those people under forbearance. You can possibly take their property over Sub To or lease option them.
5.) Be economically smart during this time. It’s better to put money into a house than a car right now. In 10 years the car’s going to be worth nothing while a house you can sell it for more.
22 yr old Filipino-American Bridges the gap between Virtual Assistants and Investors
Today Martine is joined by Andrea Stakes. Andrea is a young successful wholesaler who dropped out of dental school to pursue a real estate business.
Andrea worked with and organized Martine’s staff and brought another virtual assistant to generate more leads to her team.
Andrea got into virtual assistant training because of her past mistakes when starting her own real estate business and hiring her own virtual assistants. She realized you can’t buy your way to success. She failed her business and felt sorry for her virtual assistant so she passed her on to her friend. She continued training her virtual assistant and then more people came to her for the training and she realized it’s what she does best.
The process of hiring:
Requirements (stable internet connections, valid IDs). Interview with her virtual assistants. Final interview with Andrea. Interview with Andrea’s clients. The process of training:
American culture. Cold call mindset. Understanding their role in the business. Accent training. If you give your virtual assistants respect and consistent training your efforts will be reciprocated.
Support groups – Having someone they can talk to when there’s an issue.
Keeping virtual assistants engaged – Make them feel empowered.
Highlights and opportunities – Make their failure an opportunity to grow.
If you’re an investor or a business owner and you want to grow, you need to have good people.
Not everyone needs a virtual assistant. As a business owner you have to make sure you are ready. If you look up and find yourself working too hard in the business and feeling like you don't have any more hustle left to finish projects, it might be time for a virtual assistant.
Pivoting With Your Short Term Rentals With Nakiya Pitts
Nakiya Pitts- short term rentals
People aren't traveling, booking are going away
Today, Martine is joined by Nakiya Pitts, an investor who primary focuses on a portfolio of short term rentals. This lucrative market got tough as the pandemic begin because travel was banned and staying anywhere other than your home was frowned upon.
Many entrepreneurs understand you are not a true entrepreneur until you've had to shift, pivot, or transition your business a few times just to survive. Instead of allowing the deficit to hit hard, Nakiya moved the company quickly to provide the same solution, just to a more ideal market. To fit the times and maintain their properties they began opening their doors to college students who were put out because of the pandemic but couldn't get flights home and needed to stay in town for the long term.
In this episode, Nakiya opens up about how she knew when to shift, how they decide how to price the rent during this time, and who she's learned from when it comes to creating cash flow off of short rentals.
This episode is eye opening and proofs that you can still make money in a down turn as long as you are able to shift your product or services to provide a solution to current problems many face.

The Power Of Staying Around The Camp Fire With Sheveir Ross
"It's so important to stay close to the campfire, stay close to people on fire. "
In todays remarkable episode Martine is joined by real estate Investor, Sheveir Ross. Sheveir opens up about making a ton of money in real estate after watching HGTV shows and getting to a point where she really thought she made it. She was 26 yrs old and had never seen this amount of money before.
Come 2017, she lost everything she made. She had to go back to a full time job, she even started to convince herself real estate and full time entrepreneurship wasn't for her. She suffered from imposted syndrome after making money in the industry and loosing it all, she felt like the ultimate failure.
Sheveir mentions on her journey the first time, she'd always heard about peoples successes but not people failing. While in her job, she stopped listening to personal development, stopped praying, and stopped hanging around people who were successful and wealthy. After a year she started to realize something was missing.
Sheveir felt called to rebuild what she once created so she went back to the basics. She started listening to podcasts and audiobooks again and one step after another led her to building her network and attending industry events again.
She was relieved to hear that most millionaires all hit the low of lows, this really helped her realize she was in good company. These low moments are part of who you are, they are here for your breakthrough. Sheveir realized the second time around that your excuses can either be your excuse or your reason.
