How I Get Sellers to Sell Themselves

Remember that stellar movie Clash of the Titans and the helmet that makes Perseus invisible? Well if that is too geeky and old school, then think of Harry Potter’s cloak…

Most of you are familiar with Franklin, but for those of you who aren’t, we’ve got him all sized-up for you…

Franklin Cruz: aka REI Drill Sergeant

Franklin has been in the game long enough to use this method to his advantage, which he has done numerous times.

After serving as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army in Iraq, Franklin came home to pursue his dream as a full-time real estate investor and started his REI business from scratch. He’s also an entrepreneur, specializing in property management and property rehabilitation.

Franklin has tons of experience in condo conversions and fix and flip deals as well as historic property restoration. He’s a private lender and thrives on creative financing deals, which is exactly why we pegged him for this video lesson.
