Want to partner with Peter & Julie?
Or you can schedule a call
Speaker 1 (00:01):
Hey, when you say guys Peter Vekselman from the here, I got Russell Mitchell on the other side, Russell How are you?
Speaker 2 (00:06):
What’s up. What’s up? I’m good. How are you all?
Speaker 1 (00:09):
Super-duper. Hey again. Thank you. Thank you for being here. Um, well this is clear, just a couple of questions. First of all, tell everybody about yourself. I mean, not, you know, we know you here at Partner Driven. Some people may not tell us about yourself, what’d you do before us?
Speaker 2 (00:24):
Um, well, what I’m doing, I’m still doing, um, I work two jobs. Um, I work for a nursing nursing home as a dietary aid, and I also work as basically a glorified kitchen manager at Outback steakhouse. So, um, that’s pretty much what I do well, what I was doing.
Speaker 1 (00:44):
And, and, and I think the next question is obvious. So why real estate?
Speaker 2 (00:50):
Um, well, like I’ve been, I’ve been in my, uh, the Outback for about five years and, you know, I was really tired of, you know, working hard. I felt like I was just, you know, slave and myself, killing myself, you know, working two full time jobs, sometimes working 13, 14 hours a day. And I just, I got tired of it. So, um, I just started researching and, um, real estate sounded like something that could be beneficial for myself and my family.
Speaker 1 (01:18):
Cool. So tell me, um, when you found partner-driven right. I mean, obviously we’re not the only option out there in this world. Right. What was it about partner-driven that attracted to you and why you became one of our partners?
Speaker 2 (01:32):
Um, to be honestly, I I’ve dealt with a couple other gurus in a game, um, Cody Sperber, um, and Joel, um, which they both do, like, but he does Joel, those more like a lease options and stuff. So then I came across partner-driven I think just in a group that somebody has spoke on it and like, um, just looking at the different opportunities and, um, you know, seeing that, you know, yeah. Basically was going to do, you know, be the, basically be the funds, you know what I mean? Um, for everything that, that really intrigued me, cause I’m like, okay, I’m new at this. I don’t have any money to put up, you know what I mean, to do any type of fix and flips. So I’m like, you know, let me try it out and see if maybe this could be something that could work work for me.
Speaker 1 (02:18):
You know, it’s interesting Russell, when I ask people that question, right, like eight or nine times out of 10, I hear it exact same answer. It’s the financial side that attracted people now that you’ve been with partner-driven what else is there? I mean, what, what other benefits are you seeing to being one of our partners aside, obviously from the financial side, which, which I know is kind of the entry point for so many people.
Speaker 2 (02:40):
Yeah. Um, for me right now, I, the support, you know what I mean? Like, especially, um, especially, especially the support side. Um, if I shoot an email out to, um, to support they get right back with me, um, just kinda like the guidance, um, advice. I know we’ve spoken on the phone quite a few times, you know what I mean about, um, about what I was doing in my deals and you know, what I needed to do. So, um, for me, it’s, you know, it’s the support, you know, um, the, the groups, you know what I mean? There’s always information in there then of course, you’ve got the zooms, you know, in the morning and at night, which also is going to help anybody that, you know, doesn’t know anything about the business. You know what I mean? So like, um, like just guided me through my, through my, uh, the, the deal I got now, you know what I mean? Just the coaching. So for me, it’s, it’s been like, there’s been the coaching. Um, can’t really say the financial side, cause we haven’t done any fix and flips right now. We really have been doing them. So, um, but other than that,
Speaker 1 (03:44):
I talk about what you just said. Tell us about the current deal we’re working on. How’d you find it first of all?
Speaker 2 (03:50):
Um, it’s kind of funny cause actually I found this, I had found the deal, um, through, through the CRM, but, um, I had talked to somebody, uh, another wholesaler that had actually had this property under contract. Okay. And so, um, you know, I was going to see if maybe we could do some type of JB, but she was trying to, like, she was trying to, it was three other houses that she was trying to do all of this, you know, all of them in one package and you know, I wasn’t really feeling it so we couldn’t come to an agreement. Well, she couldn’t, she couldn’t do anything with it. So like I actually hit him up. I hit the guy up the owner and um, he, um, he was like, well, we already, you know, we have somebody. So then he calls me back and was like, Hey, it didn’t fall through. Are you still interested? And I’m like, yeah, of course. So, um, I talked to mark, uh, went out there myself, um, to, you know, to check out the, uh, the property rather. And then, um, had my agent and myself actually I’ve had to go out there and then myself just to go, you know, inspect for repairs. Um, I have a friend that’s a contract manager, so he knows a lot about, uh, repairs and that stuff. So they worked
Speaker 1 (05:05):
Out, what do we have it under contract for? Uh,
Speaker 2 (05:08):
We got it on a contract for 55,000.
Speaker 1 (05:11):
Any idea what we’re going to, um, try to sell it for,
Speaker 2 (05:17):
Um, a hundred thousand, some of 400,000. It does need some repairs, but we’re selling as is. Um, uh, when I talked to Mary, I think it was married. She said we’re just selling as is. So just a quick, just,
Speaker 1 (05:30):
Just a quick little, what are we selling it for? And as this condition,
Speaker 2 (05:33):
Um, as his condition was, well, wait, I take that back. We’ve got the contract for 40,000. I’m sorry, 40,000 selling it for 55.
Speaker 1 (05:42):
It’s not bad. Right. For not touching something. Yeah. That’s awesome. Well, first of all, congratulations, congratulations. And you know, I always kind of, a lot of times I’ll look at what somebody does before this like sensitive. Some people will ask, well, how good do you think I’ll do? And always ask him, what do you tell me what you’re doing right now? I mean, anyone like you, who’s good doing two jobs. Obviously you’re not scared of work. If you’re not scared of hustling, you’re just looking for the right opportunity. And, and any day I’ll tell people any, any date Russell. I always tell people any day, I’ll take somebody willing to hustle than some kind of super duper genius guy, but you know what I mean? So I want to commend you on that. Congratulations with that. Um, so finally, you know, you, you, you obviously have your personal experience with us at partner-driven there’s people that are going to be looking at this that are going to be like wondering, should they become part of the partner driven, uh, way of doing business? What’s your, what’s your, what’s your personal feedback? Um,
Speaker 2 (06:39):
Um, I would say go for it and, you know, take the chance, like I said, like the support is there. Um, you know, they’re there to guide you through it. You know what I mean? Whatever you need to know. Um, it’s, it’s always a good back and to have somebody that, you know, like, you know, just on the financial side of you’re somebody that doesn’t have the financial, you know, ability to, to lock in deals for whatever reason, I’d say definitely, you know what I mean? This will be the way to go. I mean, there’s, there’s a lot of benefits to, to, to dealing with, you know, partner driven, you know, you just gotta, you gotta take that step and don’t be scared, basically.
Speaker 1 (07:14):
Awesome. Well, listen, I appreciate it. I know we’re in the middle of the day. I appreciate taking the time I look forward to doing many, many deals together and uh, over now I appreciate it, Russell. Thank you, buddy. Let’s get it. Let’s go.
