About Me: 

I have been investing in real estate since 2009. The first year I completely failed and never even closed my first deal until after I got training from deans Programs. I have an amazing partner Dominic and together in 2010 we started our company.

This has been an amazing journey and I love being a part of Dean's family. As of today we have close over 20 deals and counting!! I look forward to that number being in the hundred for 2014. I have attended 3 edge events and this year will be my 4th!!! Woo HOO!!

My Market is in Kansas City but we have connected with many people across the country. I will go where ever my buyers take me and where I can provide OUTSTANDING service for them and there investment portfolio's.

I look forward to meeting with you all and have an AMAZING 2014

Thank you :)

investorinmissouri's picture

Hi there and thank you. I just saw this today. I never knew about this part of the site LOL.

what i have done so far

investorinmissouri's picture

Currently this is what I have done.

I have submitted a total of 52 offers. one accepted by a seller waiting on the bank to approve. Another accepted due to close soon. This one I am planing to wholesale to another investor.

I am not funding any properties just funding my marketing which is ink, paper, sharpies, poster boards, my computer, my car, and my awesome go getter attitude Smiling

I have done alot of work so far. Writing ads, putting up signs, flyers, handing out business cards, attending meetings, posting on forums, researching properties,viewing properties, searching for properties, backgrounds, talking with buyers and sellers, going through ads, reading books, doing my training, along with so many other elements.

Action all the way Smiling what kind of partnership are you looking for? What have you done so far? I currently have an amazing partner as well. But I am always looking to partner on any deal that can be worked.

Live in Independence, MO too!

What made it click for you guys? Help...

sroberts9's picture

Hi my name is Susan Roberts and I was reading your post about how you and your husband made this happen. I've been reading, searching, on how to make this happen I read stories about folks who were just like me - confused on exactly what to do - broke, bad credit or no credit. I just wondered what clicked for you guys? How did you do your 1st assignment? Do you have completed forms that maybe you can share with me? I've been told to do it creatively - without going to closing? I have no money, no experience in repairs, I don't even own a home of my own. My husband and I used my retirement to pay off our debts so we are "thank God" debt free and I want to do assignments but, I am not sure exactly how to do them without going to closing and I don't want to turn down a deal because I don't know how to do it. Can you please help? You've done so well with all your ribbons here it shows you finally got it and its working for you guys. Any help would be appreciated. I've searched these forums and still have not found a solid answer and I know everyone is busy making money and don't really have time to help out even if they wanted too. But, any help is appreciated. Thank you

With out going to closing

investorinmissouri's picture

The only assignment I have done with out going to closing was very unusual.

My buyers had cash. It was a probate. It was done with a lawyer who I sent the contracts to and my buyers paid my assignment fee directly. I got half up front and the other half we got the day they received their warranty deed. They had to go record it at the recorder of deeds office at the court house.

I do not recommend this. I was my first assignment. After it was all said and done when I talked to my coach about it we should have gone to a title company or had the attourney provide the title insurance. There was no insurance on the title which means that if there is a lien or any encumbrances on the property it passes to my buyer. Thankfully there was nothing more than back taxes owed which we knew ahead of time because I did my own search prior to making the deal. But you should always close with title insurance so you are covered.

submitting offers

When you submitted your offers, Were you asked for an EMD? Were those offers dealing with a real estate agent for the seller? I have located several good deals, but unable to submit an offer because I do not have any funds or credit for EMD. Most buyers want you to have it under contract and they take it from there, but if you don't have EMD you can't get it under contract and you are back to square one.

Any suggestions would be helpful.


investorinmissouri's picture

I have a partner that helps me with the EM. But we also line up our buyer and according to the state issued contracts here in MO we have 10 days to get the EM to them unless otherwise stated in the contract. This is when I have my end buyer give us a NON refundable deposit in the amount of the EM. That deposit is given to the title company but make sure you put that it goes to you in your contract with them. Otherwise the title company will hold it for the second transaction.

Another way to get EM is if you partner up with one of your buyers and search for homes for them but you let them know that once you find a home the contract is accepted they will be the one putting up the funds for the EM. This is only if you have had a relationship with your buyer and they know the kind of deals you do and trust you.

Hello Makeba & Donna,

I also stay within the greater Kansas City area, and I thought I would make a connection with you both. Furthermore, I purchased Dean's book about two years ago, but the after result ended in ignoring the book due to college demands. Recently, I purchased his last two books, and I plan on reading them to get stated; however, I wanted to make my first connection in our local area. Maybe we could do business sometimes, learn from each other, and/or share different perspectives (hopefully, real soon). Eye-wink

I saw your website the other day. It looks great. It caught my eye because I used to live in Overland Park, KS and I've been looking at properties in the Johnson county area. I am flying into KC in the beginning of April before heading to AZ for the EDGE conference. It'd be nice to talk with another DGer.
