It, however, was NOT easy. Understanding many of these rules involved countless hours of research, back and forth calls, emails, and (I hate to say it) arguments with planning officials.
Not only that, it took even longer to vet projects because now I had figure out all the different opportunities, that were potentially available, and how they could be applied to the properties our clients were interested in.
However, after further refinement using the system, I was able to quickly evaluate properties in under an hour and help our brokerage become more competitive when submitting offers on behalf of clients.
That same year we helped a client buy a property for around than $470,000 (around the list price - which people thought was crazy), and now he has plans to build a $1.5 million+ development on that same property.
As time passed, the system expanded to include the key ingredients that were enabling our clients to stay competitive when submitting offers and start getting projects pushing up into higher and higher sales price tags.
Flash forward to today, using the pillars within the system, we were able to transform ALL of our developers from conventional 'flippers' to developers with MILLION DOLLAR PROJECTS.
Which is why, I call it the Million Dollar Developer's System...
Because even though I haven't become that million dollar developer (just yet), it has been amazing to see how well the system has and continues to work for our clients. It has enabled them to be more strategic in the properties that they consider. It has freed us from a lot of the grind that comes with bargain hunting, and allowed both them and our team to enjoy more time with friends, family and doing the things we love.
And, at the end of the day, I feel even more grateful because I know exactly what to do when that next once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes up. 😉
That is why, today, I'm excited to be....
