Mentor Program

Nice to meet you!

How can we do business?

I enjoy working with investors, new and experienced.  As a real estate mentor, I am proud to offer help and guidance to real estate investors.  I offer several home study courses, and live events.  For those wanting to be directly mentored by me, I only work with HomeVestors Franchisees.  This is because you have to be willing to commit in this business.  My franchisees attend a week of training in Dallas, and are personally mentored by me.  I give complete access to me (my personal cell phone) and eleven years of forms, checklists, and contacts.  I manage offices from coast to coast.  I partner with other HomeVestors Development Agents in your local market, and guide them through the support you need.  If you would like to talk to me about joining my team, please click here to contact me.  Otherwise, if you would like access to my other training and events, please join my email list to your right, or register for an event.


HomeVestors offers two types of real estate franchise opportunities for people interested in building a business based on our real estate business franchise model. Our independently owned real estate franchise opportunities give our franchisees the power to independently operate their very own business.

Our unique real estate business franchise includes a revolutionary software system that our franchisees use to assess homes for purchase and renovation. It also includes mass advertising through attention-getting billboard campaigns that achieve universal market awareness for our real estate business franchise owners quickly. We also have a direct selling program that enhances our real estate franchise opportunities by helping franchisees identify home buyers and investors who already have an interest in specific neighborhoods.

With tireless support from HomeVestors and our local development agent mentors, our HomeVestors real estate business franchise owners build house portfolios by purchasing investment grade properties at discount cash prices. Our franchisees focus on creating positive equity and cash flow within their home portfolios by either selling rehabbed properties or holding them as rental homes.

HomeVestors is one of the rare real estate franchise opportunities out there with a business model and support system that really works. Check out our HomeVestors franchisees testimonials to get the proof for yourself.

  1. Full Franchise – Our Full real estate business franchise is for the person interested in developing a complete real estate business. The franchise fee of $50,000 earns the Full franchise owner lower ongoing fees. Full franchisees typically open an actual office location and have a staff that supports and grows their business.
  2. Associate Franchise – Our Associate real estate business franchise is for the person interested in developing a part-time real estate business. The franchise fee of $15,000 earns the Associate franchise owner marketing rights in their territory. Associate Franchisees typically work the business part-time out of their home, until it grows to become a full-time job where they will then move into a Full Franchise.

We are just happy you are here to learn more and that you want to get into the real estate franchise business because it is an excellent way to build wealth and enjoy a life helping people and doing something you love.

HomeVestors Real Estate Business Franchise


There are so many great deals out there that it’s common for our franchisees to buy more ugly houses than they have the ability to renovate and sell. This creates an outstanding opportunity for real estate investors looking to purchase excess properties from HomeVestors franchisees. Our real estate business franchisees work with investors in a number of ways.

Some investors just want to build a portfolio of rental homes. By letting HomeVestors franchisees know the types of properties you are looking for, we can help you locate properties that suit your needs, such as “full rehab homes” or just simple “paint and flooring replacement homes.” Even if you are looking for a finished property (with or without a tenant), HomeVestors franchisees can help.
