Changes are coming in 2014

January 9, 2014 — 3 Comments

Real Estate Investing can be tricky.  It involves a lot of moving pieces, and you must have a great team, or you can lose a lot of money.  First, please congratulate Jason Riney on becoming my partner within my house buying business. This real estate investing business buys more than 100 houses a year on average.  Jason has worked with me for six years, and has been a part of over 700 transactions. Jason will be taking over the day-to-day operations of our HomeVestors Franchise. This will allow me to focus on B2R Finance, and growing the industry. Jason can be reached via email here. Our new company will be H&R Acquisitions, LLC. Nothing changes with way we do business, just who is in charge every day!

I have been very fortunate to have learned how to build and lead a team many years ago.  These lessons have prepared me to pursue additional opportunities, and grow my businesses.  I highly recommend you understand your capabilities, and the abilities of those around you.  Luck is nothing more than preparation meeting opportunity.

If you are in the DFW area tonight, please join me at the Roddy Round Up tonight at 6:30 PM in Addison. George Roddy and I will be teaching about property evaluation in a changing market, how to build a rental portfolio, and the REI Expo.

Free Veterans WorkshopVeterans Workshop
January 25 & 26 – As you may know, I am a former Marine. I have a deep love and respect for all veterans. A month ago, I was watching the news and saw another story of a vet committing suicide. PTSD is real, and is largely aggravated by veterans having difficulty assimilating back into society. I decided we would host a veterans entrepreneurial workshop in order to try to help. Saturday and Sunday at the REI Expo in a couple of weeks, we will provide a free workshop. If you are a veteran, or know a veteran, that could benefit from learning more about being an entrepreneur, please use this link to register. It is free, and there are limited spaces, so please only register if you plan to attend.

Multifamily Bus Trip
from Brad Sumrok – Brad has been a great friend of the Expo over the past couple of years, and wanted to offer a multifamily property tour while you are in town for the expo. On Monday, January 27, Brad will let up to 50 people go tour his apartment buildings with him. Get the details here.

Kids workshops
January 25 & 26 – While I was busy creating new challenges, I decided to help kids too. We are hosting a two-day kids workshop at the REI Expo in a couple of weeks. If you would like to register a child for free, please use this form. Registration is open to ages 12 – 18. We will provide security, and meals so you can enjoy the expo. The track will run from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Saturday and Sunday.

That’s it. If you have questions, please call my office at 972.755.1880 or contact us.

I started at the bottom, worked hard and am now one of the top Real Estate Investors in the business. I learned from some of the best, excelling early as an acquisitions manager and then moved on to partner with other skilled investors to create my own portfolio of productive rental properties and later to mentor others to do the same. I am still actively involved in Real Estate, giving a current awareness to the training I share. My wife, Jennifer, and I live in Rockwall with our sons, Alex and Will.

  1. FYI – there’s no such thing as a “former Marine.” We are “Marines.” Once you earn the title…you never lose it. You should know that.
    However, defining yourself as a “former” Marine typically exposes you as a desk jockey.
    Real Marines joined the Infantry…the backbone of the Corps. Paper pushers are wanna-be hardchargers who didnt have the spine to kick down doors and engage the enemy with an M-4.
    Stop using the fact that you were in the Marines to make people respect you and think you’re a tough guy. You were a paper-pushing intel specialist who didnt have the “stones” to take a real challenge and be part of the infantry.
    Real warriors don’t have to tell everyone that they were in the Marines….or were “former Marines” as you so often like to say publicly.
    When people think of Marines….they dont think of a POG who pushed paper and analyzed intel. Great – you served your country. But you will always be a notch or two below the real Marine Corps….the infantry.
    Semper weak-sauce!

    • Great feedback. We used the M-4 in 2000 when I was attached to the DAP. Know what that is? I was open contract when I enlisted, so “stones” have no issue with regards to the needs of the Corps.

  2. Dear “TheGrunt” – this man has more tact and integrity then you could possibly know. Your commentary shows the contrary of you. I am proud of all men and women in the military who have held a position as an administrator or otherwise. It takes every one to build a successful military. Keep in mind that the administrators are the ones that write and enforce rules. Plus, we all need someone who knows how to lead. Tim Herriage is one of those people. Amen.
