Mastering Airbnb: Effective Communication and Property Management with Noah Hoffman
Noah Hoffman is a dynamic entrepreneur who ventured into the real estate industry at a young age. Initially working for a mentor in property management, Noah quickly identified the potential of short-term rentals through Airbnb. He began managing properties for his mentor and gradually expanded his portfolio, renting additional properties to put on Airbnb. Noah's experience as a carpet cleaner also proved beneficial as he pitched the idea of short-term rentals to property owners, successfully securing management contracts.After five years of working in property management, Noah made his first property purchase - a duplex with an FHA loan, occupying one unit himself. Empowered by his remote management skills, acquired through overseeing properties out of town, Noah took a leap and started investing in Fresno, California, as the San Francisco Bay area lacked favorable cash flow opportunities. To further increase his income, Noah also ventured into building accessory dwelling units (ADUs), capitalizing on favorable legislation that made the process more affordable and accessible.Noah now successfully manages multiple properties remotely and has expanded his ADU projects to include five units. With his entrepreneurial spirit and ability to seize innovative opportunities, Noah Hoffman continues to flourish in the real estate industry.Connect with Noah Hoffman: Topics:Communication with Guests on AirbnbImportance of providing key informationBedroom/bathroom detailsLocationPriceOffering discounts to guestsBased on requests or short notice check-insManaging Airbnb PropertiesCoordinating with service providersHouse cleanersHandymenDelegating property management tasks to staffKeeping detailed property information Appliance model numbersWarranty informationOffering Additional Services to GuestsWhite glove servicesPre-arrival groceries through partnerships with services like InstacartStarting with free or low-cost options, gradually incorporating income-generating servicesMaximizing Rental IncomeSplitting a house into multiple unitsEspecially in expensive areas like the Bay AreaMeeting the demand for furnished rentals for traveling workersWilling to pay around $2000 a monthReal Estate Investing Strategies and FinancingCreative financing and wholesaling for finding off-market dealsPurchasing properties without getting loans in their namePersonal branding and networking for attracting investorsSpeaker's Journey in Real EstateStarting as an entrepreneur at a young ageGaining mentorship and work experience in property managementGradually expanding from managing properties to buying their ownFundraising and Crowd FundingUsing a platform like Air Me for a large fundraising callTransitioning from a 506b investment to a crowd funding campaignHiring a SEC attorney and finding a SEC approved platformImportance of having a website for investor announcements and updatesChallenges and Lessons LearnedChallenges with managing properties with pools Experiences with buying and selling deals from wholesalersStruggles with effectively managing a cold callerBalancing personal involvement and delegation as a business ownerGrowth and Future...

Enhancing Rental Investments: A Unique Model of ROI and Resident Incentives with Daniel Dorfman
Daniel Dorfman is the visionary behind Roots, a real estate fund designed to provide affordable access to great return properties. He recognized the need for a win-win situation where residents could feel invested in the homes they live in, while also ensuring cash flow for investors. Dorfman observed that traditional security deposits often discouraged tenants from caring for the property, leading to a decline in quality. To address this issue, he created a unique model where tenants become partners in the investment from day one, acquiring a percentage ownership stake in the building and portfolio. Additionally, through the Living in Lake Yona program, tenants have the opportunity to earn rental rebates by responsibly maintaining the property and being good neighbors. Dorfman's innovative approach has not only transformed the tenant-landlord relationship but also yielded impressive results, with higher rent payment rates and improved asset quality. While challenges and resistance are expected, the Roots model is designed to incentivize participation and foster a partnership mentality among residents.Connect with Daniel Dorfman: • SHARE • JOIN • REVIEWWebsiteJoin the REI Mastermind Network on Locals!Apple PodcastsGoogle PodcastsYouTubeSpotifyStitcherDeezerFacebookTwitterInstagramSUPPORT THE SHOW!Self Managing Your Rental Properties?

Mastering Multifamily: The Art of Raising Money and Building Relationships with Abbas Mohammed
Abbas Mohammed is a successful real estate investor who made a name for himself in the multifamily sector. His journey began at the age of eighteen when he entered the real estate industry as a residential agent. Though he initially struggled, Abbas soon found his footing and rapidly rose in the ranks. Within just four and a half years, he earned a spot as one of the top 15 agents in the country, working under REMAX and managing a team of 25 virtual assistants. With his residential business flourishing, Abbas faced a new challenge – how to effectively invest the surplus cash generated from his sales. Initially, he considered building a single-family portfolio. However, upon closer examination, he realized that he would have limited control over the value of these homes, which largely depended on external factors such as interest rates and affordability. Sensing potential pitfalls, Abbas decided to explore other investment options. After thoroughly researching various avenues, Abbas stumbled upon the world of multifamily real estate. Intrigued by the numerous advantages it offered, he quickly made the bold decision to skip single-family investments altogether and dive straight into multifamily. His first venture involved a 64-unit property, a leap of faith that would prove to be one of the best decisions he ever made. Since then, Abbas Mohammed has continued his successful journey in multifamily real estate, leveraging his expertise and experience to further expand his portfolio. His story serves as an inspiration to aspiring investors, showcasing the rewards that come from strategic decision-making, calculated risk-taking, and an unwavering pursuit of success in the real estate industry.Connect with Abbas Mohammed: Topics & Bullets:Challenges in Raising Money for Real Estate DealsDifficulty encountered by the speaker in raising money for real estate dealsConcerns about using other people's money and the associated risksHesitation in accepting a $50,000 investment due to lack of guarantee on returnsPositive outcome of a deal with a 29% increase in NOIRealization of the seriousness of using other people's money in investmentsEmphasis on the importance of being careful and responsible when dealing with other people's moneyBuilding Relationships with Brokers in Multifamily Real EstateStrategy of targeting newer brokers on teams rather than top brokersEasier communication and relationship-building with junior brokersImportance of treating brokers like friends and being known and trusted by themBeing omnipresent, active on social media, and diligent in the deal process to establish trustQuick response to deals, being communicative and honest to build trustFollowing through on promises and avoiding unnecessary changes or renegotiationsEstablishing deep relationships with brokers through diligence and keeping promisesAppreciation from brokers for the effort put into deals, even if they don't closeScaling and Growing the Business through HiringHiring the first virtual assistant in 2019 and subsequent hires before COVIDInstruction to the hiring manager to continue hiring nonstop during COVIDSignificant growth of the team from three people to twelve and then from 12 to 25Tripling business income in 2020 and again in the following yearRealization that delegation and hiring people with different skills are essential for growthHiring someone to focus on raising equity from high net worth individuals and family officesPrioritizing hiring people who can do what the speaker is trying to...

Navigating Risks and Success in Real Estate: Lessons Learned from a Lawsuit with Joe DiSanto
Joe DeSanto is a fractional CFO who specializes in providing part-time CFO services to businesses. He has a background in owning larger businesses in the production and post-production space in Los Angeles. Joe and his wife decided to make a change in their lives after having a child, and they moved to Florida. With their savings from real estate investing and other market investments, Joe was able to work part-time and supplement their passive income. His financial independence and early retirement mindset led him to consider himself semi-retired. However, his expertise in finance and managing businesses led to his former partners asking him to continue handling their finances as a consultant. This led to other business owners reaching out to Joe, realizing the need for a part-time CFO who could provide the same level of expertise at a more affordable cost. Joe enjoys working with his clients and helping them understand the importance of running their personal finances like a business. He started a blog to communicate his knowledge to individuals who may not be able to afford a CFO but still want guidance in managing their finances.

Location, Leases, and Analysis: The Key Factors for Buying and Operating Laundromats w/ Jordan Berry
Jordan Berry is a former pastor who made a bold decision to step away from his vocation after 15 years to seek a different path. Unsure of what to do next, Jordan and his family had the idea to rent out their house in Southern California and use the money to buy a condo in Hawaii. However, Jordan's wife had a different proposition – buying a laundromat instead. Intrigued by the concept of generating income that wasn't tied to their time, Jordan and his wife took the plunge and became laundromat owners. Although not entirely passive, the business offered a level of flexibility and potential returns that intrigued them. This unexpected leap into the laundromat business would mark a significant turning point in Jordan's professional journey.Connect with Jordan Berry: Topics and Bullets:Financing options for laundromatsManufacturers and independent lenders offer financing optionsEquipment financing may offer 100% financing with down payment requirementsTraditional financing for real estate requires higher down paymentsSBA options available, but qualifying can be challengingSeller financing is common due to difficulty in securing traditional financingLimited or inaccurate financial records can affect securing financingDifferent business models for laundromatsSelf-serve, service-side, and pickup and delivery modelsPickup and delivery services gaining popularity during COVIDLocation important for self-serve laundromatsSelf-serve targets renters with below median incomeService-side caters to customers with above median incomeDebate on replacing machines in the industrySome see keeping old machines as a badge of honorOthers believe in replacing for efficiency and customer satisfactionSpeaker suggests replacing around the 15-year markBenefits of replacing include decreased repair costs, lower utility costs, and increased efficiencyShiny new machines attract more customers and allow for higher pricesRehabbing and marketing a rundown laundromatSpeaker chose not to sell but invested in new machines and rehabbed spaceRehabbing reputation proved more challenging than renovating the physical spaceMarketing strategies used include flyers, Google ads, and Facebook adsSuggestion of organizing a wow event or grand opening to draw attentionImportance of location, lease, and deal analysisLocation crucial and difficult to move once establishedGood lease necessary to avoid business failureAnalyzing the deal and knowing what you're buying is keyTracking income and expenses in cash-based businessLaundromats mainly cash-based, making tracking challengingKnowledge of tips and tricks necessary for accurate assessmentLA's competitive laundromat marketLaundromat industry historically lacked advertisingMore owners realizing the importance of customer care and promotionNegative industry image due to frequent breakdowns and poor experiencesFocusing on customer satisfaction and profitabilityConvenience crucial for customers, but potential for expansion in competitive areasOpportunities for profitability by filling gaps and providing better experiencesBasics of cleanliness, working machines, friendly attendants, and full coin changers importantLoyalty incentives, promotions, and positive atmosphere enhance the experienceThe misconception of laundromats as passive businessesDisagreement with belief that laundromats require little...

Leveraging Social Media and Networking: How to Grow Your REI Team and Portfolio with CJ Calio
CJ Calio's story begins with him working as a well-paid, labor-intensive UPS driver. However, a particularly busy Christmas season where he couldn't see his family for months made him realize that he couldn't continue doing this job for the rest of his life. After discussing his frustration with his wife, she suggested looking into real estate as a potential income replacement. Although initially hesitant due to his lack of knowledge and pride, CJ eventually came around and supported his wife's idea. Together, they started attending networking events and learning about real estate strategies. CJ initially felt out of place and afraid to engage with others, but as he immersed himself in the industry, he realized that it was a legitimate opportunity for financial success. They took a leap of faith and purchased a property, eventually realizing that it was generating income. This success propelled CJ into becoming a leader in the real estate industry. He and his wife rapidly grew their portfolio, enabling them both to leave their previous jobs. As word spread about their achievements, CJ found himself mentoring others who were interested in achieving financial independence through real estate. After five years of mentoring, CJ and his wife have helped numerous individuals overcome their fears and start building their own portfolios of passive income. They are thrilled to be a part of this journey and continue to empower others to achieve financial success in real estate.Connect with CJ Calio: Topics and Bullets:Leveraging social media and joining REI meetup groups and mastermind groupsBuilding a list of team members including agents, lenders, property management, and loan officersPresenting oneself seriously and being genuine on social mediaEstablishing credibility by getting on the phone with people quickly and introducing oneself as a real investorOrganic growth of team building efforts and being authentic about current status and goalsSome people taking time to believe in the speaker, but maintaining communication with themFocusing on cash flow and buy and hold strategy from the beginningSeeking a stream of income that can replace job incomeSuccess with the buy rehab rent, refinance, and repeat (BURR) strategyScaling portfolio in single-family and small multifamily propertiesSpouse becoming overwhelmed as portfolio grewApplying expertise in other areas and gaining confidence from experienceExpanding into commercial real estate investing, specifically in retail, strip malls, office space, and medical spaceApplying same strategy but on a larger scale in commercial propertiesDiscussing different types of commercial properties owned, including an office, a medical facility, a government building, and a mixed-use spaceContrasting commercial properties with residential properties in terms of evaluation and return on investmentStarting with inner circle and having conversations with people they trustReceiving honest feedback from family and friends and shifting focus to what's in it for othersOvercoming initial perception of being a salesman and emphasizing benefits for othersBelief that they needed to work long hours to deserve income, but shifting mindset to prioritize productivityMentoring from someone with experience helping change mindset and focus on productivityHaving more time to spend with family after shift in mindsetFinding dealing with businesses and commercial entities intimidating, particularly technical aspects such as leasesNeed for legal assistance due to lack of standardization in commercial leasesFocus on acquisition...
