Level Jumping: How I Grew My Business to Over $1 Million in Profits in 12 Months




I am thrilled to welcome my friend and colleague, Bill Allen, to the show today to talk about his new book! I point out that Bill is by far my most frequent guest and how he has shared his background story in other podcasts. He went from one flip in his first year to sixty-seven in his next year by joining the 7 Figure Flipping Mastermind, blowing up his real estate investing business in a manner very similar to my own path. Bill ended up buying the 7 Figure Flipping company in July of 2019 and has been super busy the past couple of years, but was convinced it was now or never for getting his thoughts and experiences down on paper. We deep dive into his first book, 7 Figure Flipping Underground, in the rest of the interview.

 

Both of us get the same business-related questions all the time, and Bill expressed the need to have something to hand someone to say, “here is the answer.” The desire to leave something behind for his kids and others to reference was also a strong motivator for Bill to take on this project. We talked about how being part of the 7 Figure Flipping Mastermind group has a large pricetag and he was hoping to be able to share a lot of that type of mentoring with the masses very inexpensively. Bill also talked about writing the book and then feeling it wasn’t quite what he wanted to deliver, so he ended up rewriting the entire manuscript! Because Bill had been inspired to write this book by his dad who is also a published author, I asked how his dad responded when he found out about Bill’s book. Bill said he felt so gratified when his dad told him how proud he was of him.

 

I was incredibly honored when Bill asked me to read the manuscript for the audio version of this book, so if you haven’t had enough of my voice, you will have to check it out! We did something very cool with the audio version too - I had some questions after reading the book and basically interviewed Bill for some bonus content at the end of each chapter. Bill is basically giving the book away free on his website so check out the link below to get your copy by just paying for postage. Bill also adds that he heard some advice about reading a book while listening to it at the same time, so he has made it easy to get both versions on his website.

 

I pointed out that Bill has built his company very recently, over the past several years, so that the information in the book is very current and timeless. He has also made some dramatic changes in his business structurally and I wanted him to describe the modifications he chose to make. Bill gave us some background of hiring his team and eventually a COO to basically take over for him of running the day-to-day operations. Then the pandemic changed everything. Bill is incredibly open and honest with the struggles he experienced and how it changed his outlook and goals.

Make sure you don’t miss this fantastic episode of the Just Start Real Estate Podcast with Bill Allen and get all of the inside scoop on not only his new book, but also his recent business challenges and changes! Bill is such a great guy and we just have a blast in this interview… join us!

My guest today is Byron Enriquez. Byron has over 15 years of real estate finance experience, handling complex financial transactions, always keeping in mind risk mitigation as well as a profitable outcome for all parties. He is a proven sales and leadership coach who has focused his career on developing salespeople and sales leaders. Byron lends over $15M a month for private real estate investors to invest in buy and holds, flips, and commercial real estate. His accolades include being featured in Yahoo Finance, many popular podcasts, and having completed over 1500 real estate transactions. 

 

We begin the episode with Byron sharing his background story and how he ended up in real estate. He shares that he has been in the business for almost 20 years and in that time, he has done pretty much every aspect of real estate; lending, property management, flipping.  Prior to getting into mortgage, Byron’s passion was finance. He was a foreign exchange trader in securities trading for a few years. He caught the “banking bug” at 18 years old and worked his way through college. He shares that he got his passion for real estate from his dad who owned properties and used to ask Byron for help translating loan documents when he was 12-13 years old. Looking back, he now realizes that actually triggered something in him and made him make a career out of it.

 

We then talk about Byron’s transition from the corporate world into entrepreneurship and the lessons he learned along the way. He shares that there are a lot of similarities between being a leader in the corporate world, managing a team, and being an entrepreneur. Back when he was managing hundreds of people in the banking sector, there was never a roadmap on how to achieve what they needed from him. His job was to come in and analyze the situation, and create the path. For Byron, it’s the same when it comes to entrepreneurship which is why he believes that self-motivation and self-drive are crucial in building your own path as an entrepreneur. 

 

Next, we talk about Byron’s company, JSS Financials. Byron and his partner started JSS Financials five years ago. Their goal was to help self-employed individuals and freelancers in California to get financed for properties. They started carving out a niche for themselves to be able to help these individuals. In the beginning, it was more conventional financing, but it soon evolved into what they call private mortgage lending. The funds that they lend out don't come from banks instead, they have private relationships with private family offices, hedge funds, and different investors. Byron brought that corporate mentality of doing things and disclosing everything properly. Their money is coming from private sources, but you can still mortgage it; there's a website where you can make mortgage payments and you get all the reporting that you need to get. Byron also shares that since the beginning of the pandemic, they took some calculated risks and were able to double down and expand into all fifty states. 

 

We then talk about how to be better when it comes to sales. According to Byron, the number one thing you need to look at, if you are trying to be a better salesperson, is your conversion rate. Because in sales it's not all about the activity; it's but it's doing the activity the right amount of times. Once you know your conversation rate, you will be able to determine the number of times you need to do a certain activity to get the desired result. It's all about putting yourself in opportunities to do it and letting your expertise shine when you get there. But you need to do it the right amount of times, to get in front of the right amount of people to be able to get that conversion.

 

Lastly, we talk about what to expect from the real estate market going forward in this mid to post COVID era. Byron believes that there are still a lot of opportunities in the market. We might not see the huge increases that we saw in the last 18 months, but he believes that the values will continue to increase. As for the lending side of the business, Byron shares that pre-Covid there were some more flexible programs for the qualified mortgage base, but after Covid they completely shrunk down. But, they have been opening up again in the last 6-9 months providing some opportunities for more creative financing. Byron also shares that his company is launching their own fund where investors can invest money into the fund and then JSS creates programs to go out and deploy those e funds into the real estate community.

“I reported to the CEO, I was at that level. And then I realized: I'm sitting here building something for somebody else.”

  • Byron Enriquez 

 

“It's a lot about self-motivation and self-drive, charting your own path, and being able to set those goals in front of you on your own.”

  • Byron Enriquez

 

“In this super-rush world of Instagram and social media, everyone thinks that stuff happens overnight and with no effort. But the formula hasn't changed a lot - people who work their butts off tend to find a lot of success.”

  • Mike Simmons 

 

“On a calculated gamble, we doubled down and decided to increase our marketing and expand into other markets.“

  • Byron Enriquez

 

“We are not the most expensive guys out there, quite the opposite. We usually try to work with people's framework and budget to make the deal work. We know that building that relationship with these investors is gonna be long-term.”

  • Byron Enriquez

 

“Everyone is a salesperson. If you own your own business, you're a salesperson. It doesn't matter if you're out shaking hands or making phone calls or whatever it is you're doing - you're selling yourself, you're selling your business, you're selling your services.”

My guest today is Hans Struzyna. Hans works on the #1 team for luxury real estate in the East Bay of the San Francisco Area. He has personally closed over $100 million in volume in the last 4 years. Hans is also a former member of the Olympic Rowing Team and has been featured on Fox, ABC, NBC, and CBS.

 

We begin the episode with Hans sharing his background story and how he ended up in real estate. Hans is originally from the Pacific Northwest. He grew up in Seattle and he went to the University of Washington. As a sophomore in high school, he discovered rowing, a very popular sport in the Seattle area, and he made the Olympic team while attending the University of Washington. He then moved to California to train with a high-performance team in the Bay Area and long story short, he made his way to Rio in 2016 where he competed with his team, placing fourth overall. Hans refers to that experience as his first (unpaid) career. After his rowing career was over, he jumped straight into real estate. He got his license and eventually joined the team where he’s at right now, dealing in the luxury home market. 

 

We then talk about the effect of being in sports at some point in your life and how that can manifest itself later in life, especially career-wise. As a former Olympic athlete, Hans shares that being in sports is a great place to start learning about teamwork, dedication and being intentional and consistent. He believes all of these things have tremendous value in business. Another positive consequence of being in sports is developing an ability to be coachable and understanding that coaching is necessary to get you better. But, Hans also points out that, when you're picking a coach or you're taking advice, you have to be very careful of whose advice you take and why you're taking it. This will help you avoid the shiny object syndrome and being all over the place with little to no results. 

 

Next, we talk about how and why Hans settled on the luxury market. Hans shares that when he first got into real estate, he was in short sales and foreclosures, cold calling two hours a day. In his first year, he got nine deals and felt like he wasn’t being valued enough because all that people cared about was not getting foreclosed on. Also, he realized that the middle tier and the low tier price points were being taken over by technology, so he decided to go where technology isn’t, which is the luxury home market. According to Hans, the luxury market is all about high-touch, high-value transactions, where you have to build relationships, build skill sets, and build a reputation that you are someone who can get it done and do it at an incredibly high level, which was exactly what he wanted. 

 

Lastly, we talk about Hans’ Luxury Market Workshop and some of the key components that people can take away from it. He explains that he first starts off with more practical things, like how to identify the luxury market and your brand and then he dives into how you can mold that in a way that speaks to your client, to the person who is seeking that representation and that clarity in the market. Hans’ workshop comes with seven live group coaching sessions that are held once per week, a step-by-step guide of how to identify your high-end market and your unique place in it, resources to help you plan, prepare and present your brand at all points of your career, a private Facebook group to connect and network with like-minded individuals, and a weekly live Q&A session to address all of your specific questions directly with Hans. 

 

Make sure you don’t miss this incredible episode of the Just Start Real Estate Podcast with the amazing Hans Struzyna and learn how to grow your business in the luxury home market!




Notable Quotes:

 

“It's all about the teamwork, the soft skills as well as the actual physical skills of showing up to practice or rehearsals or whatever. And I think all of that has tremendous value in business and definitely in real estate as well.”

  • Hans Struzyna  

 

“Probably the single biggest benefit of having been in sports at some point is your ability to take coaching and understand that coaching is necessary to get you better.”

  • Mike Simmons 

 

“When you're picking a coach, or you're taking advice, you have to be very careful of whose advice you take and why you're taking it.”

  • Hans Struzyna

 

“I was thinking  - well, if technology is going to try and take that middle and that lower tier, I need to go where the technology isn't.”

  • Hans Struzyna

 

“I have a process that if you go the extra mile with me and educate yourself and let me guide you, I will spare you a lot of the insanity.”

  • Hans Struzyna

 

“If you can build the base, the foundation of your offering, articulate it and then deliver upon it, that is how you build longevity in a marketplace and you build relationships. ”

  • Hans Struzyna

 

“If you get clear on what you're actually trying to do, and then identify a couple of people who can help you get there or you can model off of, you will tee yourself up for success. Nothing in this industry is complicated or rocket science, but it's all about consistency and execution. If you can nail those things and be a sponge and learn, you will have tremendous success in the long run.”

I am happy to welcome Jorge Fajardo to the show today! Jorge started his career in the mortgage and finance industry in 2002 and in order to pursue this interest on a larger scale, he built his own mortgage company. In the midst of the foreclosure crisis during the years of 2008-2015, Jorge used his vast knowledge and talents to help homeowners experiencing distress due to financial hardships. Jorge established Keystone Property Investments in 2015 and has since bought and sold over 100 properties in both the SFR and multi-family space. Keystone has lucrative joint ventures in place which allow the company to scale and take on several projects simultaneously throughout different parts of the State of Florida.

 

We begin the episode with Jorge sharing his background story and how he ended up in real estate. He has been in real estate his entire career. He started fresh out of college, in the mortgage industry as a loan officer, and eventually from there went on to open his own brokerage shop on the mortgage lending side. Everything was going great until 2008 when the mortgage meltdown and the housing crisis hit. So overnight, Jorge found himself having to close down shop, because lending had essentially dried up. Eventually, he ended up taking his lending and banking experience and knowledge and pivoting into consumer protection, going to work for a law firm that specializes in foreclosure defense and loss mitigation. With his knowledge and experience at the time, he ended up heading up the loss mitigation department. While working there, one of the things he noticed was that a lot of the same investors kept coming back and he was very intrigued by that. Little by little, he started familiarizing himself with the whole investing side. He started learning about wholesaling, creative financing, and other strategies and techniques and in 2015 he decided to leave the law firm and go into business for himself. His first deal was a wholesale and that first check was about three months' worth of his salary at the firm and he didn't look back after that.

 

We then talk about how long it took Jorge to really decide that real estate investing was what he wanted to do. He shares that once he did that first deal, and made a ton of money on it, he knew that he was going all in. He started his company in late 2015 when the market started to improve and his primary focus was marketing. He was sending out mailers, getting deals off the MLS and Zillow, and from driving-for-dollars. When it came to raising capital, he started with friends and family. He would ask them to invest their money with him and after his deal is closed, he would give them back an additional 20%. Pretty soon, as his business grew, friends and family kept coming back wanting to invest again. This allowed him to go from strictly wholesaling to doing rehabs. 

 

Next, we talk about how Jorge is handling the change in the market and how he is positioning his company for that. Jorge feels like we're currently at or reaching the top of the market. When looking at prices in areas that he is familiar with, he notices that they have significantly gone up in the last two to three years. His advice for investors is to be disciplined, have a clear understanding of what you want, and look at the numbers. 

 

Lastly, we talk about a new technology that Jorge is working on - Isum 360: Lead gen automation. Jorge explains that Isum 360 is a real estate super tool that is a mix of AI, Marketing Automation, and Real Estate Experience. With the help of one of his clients who is a software developer, Jorge and his team have built a platform that they wanted to use – and most importantly – that produces outstanding results. Isum 360 allows brokers and agents to acquire high-quality seller and buyer leads and automate the process. Also, it allows you to:

 

  • Integrate your daily tools to optimize your results
  • Automate repetitive tasks to focus on building relationships & closing deals
  • Have all of your platforms integrated into one place 
  • Higher focus, better results

 

Make sure you don’t miss this amazing episode of the Just Start Real Estate Podcast with Jorge Fajardo and learn how you can use this new technology to generate leads!



Notable Quotes:

 

“As an investor, whether you're a wholesaler or a rehabber, at the end of the day, we're looking at the same numbers. It's just about being disciplined and having a clear understanding of what your buying criteria is and what your numbers are.”

  • Jorge Fajardo 

 

“Leads are the oxygen of your company, you have to have leads. If you don't have leads coming in, you're dying.”

  • Mike Simmons 

 

“We're getting warm leads that are actually responding and we're able to then retarget a lookalike audience. Now, we can go out and retarget as many of those customers as possible to increase our returns. It's been working great.”

  • Jorge Fajardo

Notable Quotes:

 

“A hard money lender may not loan you 100% of the purchase price and renovation amount of a property, but will likely load 80-90% of those costs.”

 

“If you buy a property right, once you renovate it, it is worth more than the money you have into it, and you can refi out of it.”

 

“I always suggest finding a CPA right away, especially if you are buying rentals, because there are some significant tax advantages to having rentals.”

 

“I don’t recommend finding a CPA and having a hundred conversations with them before you start looking for investment properties.”

 

“Start looking for properties immediately!”

 

“The best CRM is the one that you will diligently use every single day in your business.”

 

“Sometimes people stress out about the tools they are going to use in their business and they make them more important than the business itself.”

 

“When approaching a property owner, you want to find out if and why they want to sell. It is really pretty simple.”
