Foreclosure King in Arkansas V1-E36 Jeff Scherrey Podcast.

Foreclosure King in Arkansas V1-E36 Jeff Scherrey. Building success in real estate is about focus and caring. Jeff developed his discipline serving our country during the Dessert Storm days. He spent time daily building his relationship with the banks well ahead of them trusting him with a property to sell. Today Jeff is considering retirement at the age of 40. Listen to him share how you, too, can be at the top of your game.

Jeff was in the Army and served our country in Dessert Storm. He spent time in Afghanistan. When he returned to his home area in Little Rock, Arkansas he started work in the real estate industry. As we remember the housing crisis in 2008-2010 was forcing hundreds of thousands of Americans out of their homes through foreclosure. The banks, through their greed and the loosing of regulations, were giving unqualified people a chance to own their own homes without the ability to pay. Jeff saw this as an opportunity to help those in need in his area, then his state. I met Jeff in 2010, my first year in real estate. He came to the Dallas Fort Worth area to the office I started in and offered to feed our office Texas foreclosures.

Jeff built that business and sells more than 100 houses a year. His plans are to retire before he is 40 and he is on target for that achievement. Along the way Jeff built a Keller Williams office into one of the most successful in the country. Today he says that time as a Team Leader in KW took him away from the work he does. He opened his own brokerage Aspire Realty Group a couple of years ago and brought with him the top producers from that KW office. Today Jeff is ready to retire, take 30 minutes and listen to his story on today’s Broker-Talk.com podcast.  Foreclosure King in Arkansas V1-E36 Jeff Scherrey Podcast.

EntryOnly Owner Jason Saphire talks about listing 1000 a year. One of the first questions

EntryOnly Home Page

we were interested in was how do other agents react to him and his business model.  Yes, he did have a death threat or two, but the agents reached out to him through MLS which also delivered their name and numbers to him. He called them up and correctly explained that these Sellers come to him, he is not taking others potential listings.  60% of these houses that he lists close which means 40% don’t and the Seller goes back into the market looking for another solution.

EntryOnly.com is in all of the New England states as well as California although in CA the

system operates differently at that state. The facts and reality of the real estate market right now is that there is so many ways for professionals and consumers to determine if a price is a value or not. From this perspective EntryOnly customers think they can do a better job, or save more money.  The proof of that does not bear out this as a truth. The truth is a professional who understands the market and knows how to market a property statistically gets as much as 20% more than the for sale by owner.

Jason is successful with this program not only because he provides the consumer with an

alternative to traditional real estate sales and he has built out a platform that provides those consumers with what they need and are looking for. Personally I applaud this fellow Broker for his ingenuity in figuring out early in his career how he can be successful. Providing the Sellers with what they want and you are consistent with that message and follow up in a constant matter makes all the difference.

Rent America The Show Michael Thomas Broker-Talk v 1 E 33

 

Michael-Thomas-RentAmericaTheShow

Rent America The Show Michael Thomas Broker-Talk v 1 E 33, was just published this morning on our Broker-talk.com real estate podcast.  Michael Thomas is an innovative, seasoned loan professional working across America creating affordable rental home projects. Rent America The Show is where you can view one of the completed projects.

Finding affordable rental housing has grown more difficult. Rent costs have gone up over the last 10 years while most wages have been stagnant or grown at a much slower rate than rental costs. It used to be a renter/owner would spend a third of the income on rent/mortgage and now that percentage is pushing up to fifty percent. With gas, food, insurance and all other costs going up the average American is struggling in this economy no matter what you are hearing from Washington. American families are struggling to make ends meet.

Michael Thomas, a VA-HUD certified lender through Gershmann Mortgage, has started actively looking for development partners across the US and particularly in the West and Southwest to finance projects. Taking existing rental units or starting over from the beginning the process is longer than traditional lending because of the HUD process, but  the projects get done and the communities are better served because of this opportunity to have a lending partner on your project.

Broker-talk is a weekly show discussing all matters of real estate. The rising costs of housing is staggering for many people and this is particularly true in places like San Francisco, Boston and New York. New York is trying to get rid of the rental commission fee which will take out agents wanting to spend time with renters. Boston is also considering this measure as well as rent control in Somerville and a transfer tax paid by both the buyer and seller of a property in the Boston area.
