Speaker 1 (00:03):
Hey, what’d he say guys, Peter Vekselman from here got one of my partners. Jamar Sprue on the other side, Jamari. How are you?
Speaker 2 (00:09):
I’m well living the dream, Pete. Thanks for having
Speaker 1 (00:11):
Me. I love it. We’re actually in the same town and, uh, um, w I know last time you stopped by my place. I was on the BeltLine. I don’t think, I don’t know if I told you, but I’ve moved now since then. Um, we’re off of, uh, in Vinings now. So we just came in from the lake house to an in-town place and, uh, hanging back, where are you at right now? You your place?
Speaker 2 (00:34):
Not right now. I’m actually actually my mother’s house, you know, just checking on her and my Nancy and how they’re doing. I love it.
Speaker 1 (00:40):
I love it. I love it. Well, listen, I appreciate you being, uh, being on our zoom call and you know what, I just literally want to talk to you about your journey from the time you met us at Partner Driven, you know, to, to where you are now. So, first of all, before we even get into that, tell me about a little bit about, tell everybody a little bit about your background.
Speaker 2 (00:59):
Okay. Well, I met, I remember I met you and Julie. It was maybe around 20 12, 20 13. And at that time I was working in a warehouse, you know, um, and I saw the opportunity there, but then just kind of got caught in the motions of the nine to five machine, you know, uh, life kind of happened. So then years go by and then I come across your webinar, you know? So I didn’t really have a lot of real estate background. Maybe had some urban bird bog background, but that was about it. And, um, and then when I came across your webinar, a couple of years ago, I knew this was, this was, this was the one opportunity I had to jump in on.
Speaker 1 (01:35):
Now, when you initially, this is what I’m always curious about this next question, because let’s face it. I’m not the only investor. I’m not even the only investor in Atlanta. I’m probably not the only investor within five miles of where you live, but what initially attract, why did you want to align with our organization?
Speaker 2 (01:53):
Because I knew you all initially. And I remember, um, mark, Mark Evans, out of Ohio. He said very good things about you. So when I went and I always was on your email list ever since then, so when I saw you had that thing, I was like, I’m not, I don’t care about it. I know there’s other investors out there, but I know Peter and I know Julie, cause I want to see what they’ve got going on.
Speaker 1 (02:13):
I love it. It’s funny you say mark. I was just texting with mark like five minutes ago. Yeah, he’s mark. Mark’s the real deal, Tim. No question about it. Okay. So you get in and what, within two days you become a millionaire. Was that your story?
Speaker 2 (02:27):
Oh, no. I wish some people have it like that, but my story was, um, I got into it and I just hit it full throttle button, um, way more than I ever did before. So I started doing driving for dollars. You know what you said? Y’all said do driving for dollars. I did driving for dollars every day. I document my journey every day for like a year. It took me about a year to get my first deal, but I’d never stopped and I never gave up.
Speaker 1 (02:50):
Uh, what was that? That’s a very interesting point because a lot of is, you know, a lot of people do stop and a lot of people do give up. So what do you think from like, from our perspective, because I want to document a little bit from our perspective, what was it that we, I mean, obviously it’s 90%, you, you had the determination, you had the guts, but like, what did we offer to keep you going in those times when you’re like, crap, I need to get this thing done quicker.
Speaker 2 (03:17):
The webinars, the webinars and the live events was just, just, game-changing how y’all accessibility, how I could talk to you. I can get you on the phone. I could talk to Julie. And then just seeing how the partner driven machine works. As soon as I submit a contract, how everything start going into motion? Like I had a potential flip within an hour. Mary was telling me that the inspector was there to do an inspection. And then when the contractor was going to come, like, it was amazing just to see how everything would, once you, like, you always talk about plugging into your infrastructure, how that works. So I was like, man, all I gotta do is get a deal that works. And they’re just taking it from there. You know? So that’s what kept me going.
Speaker 1 (03:56):
You know, sometimes people don’t realize and I get it, cause I didn’t really realize that myself when I got started. But the important of back office support. Yes, no. When I got started to me, I was like over my head, it’s not like they don’t understand. They just don’t know what they don’t know. Talk a little bit about how important that is in terms of, you know, how we were able to help you with our back office stuff.
Speaker 2 (04:17):
I’m telling y’all listen, if you don’t, if you who have tried to do it on your own, you know how difficult it can be. So Pete having that back office support, having the office there with me to do things like just as simple as working with the closing attorney, all the things, all the hustle and bustle in the mundane tasks I would have to do on my own. Had it not had, if it wasn’t for Laura and Mary following up with me, making sure I had to do so much as, uh, you know, even get the documents from the Eve. If it wasn’t for Mary, I wouldn’t even know the documents I would need to get from the seller to close the paperwork. You know, back office support is everything. Cause I don’t, I don’t even know what I would have done if it wasn’t for Mary and Laura, you know, in the back office support y’all guys don’t understand that you won’t understand until you try to do it on your own. I’m telling you that back office support.
Speaker 1 (05:02):
That’s awesome. Now I know we’ve done and closed multiple deals together now. Um, but if you have to just like extract just one of those deals, right? W in your opinion, which one of those was the most impactful deals for you? If there was maybe they were all the same, but out of the multiple deals we’ve done together, which one would just say, yep. That one, right there was really, really, really impactful or maybe unusual.
Speaker 2 (05:32):
Gotta be, well first starting off the first one, I think for most people, the first one is always the most impactful cause it’s like, wow, it’s real. This is real. You know, I had got the check in front of me. I just met with Pete. He gave me the check. It’s real. I can really do this. It broke down so many limiting beliefs and barriers. Second one was my Forefield. Fourth deal was good because I showed the power of how I can be of service to somebody and how can change somebody’s life. I made nothing on that, but it wasn’t even about that one. It was about changing somebody’s life, stopping their home from foreclosure and doing all that stuff. So, but more than anything else, the first one, because that one showed that the dream is real.
Speaker 1 (06:11):
That’s awesome. Now you’ve gotten a reputation in our whole world, not just with us here, but with so many of our partners is driving for dollars, man. Now the, uh, uh, any of those deals that we’ve done together, not come from driving for dollars or did they all come from driving for dollars
Speaker 2 (06:28):
At this point, every single one of them came from driving for dollars.
Speaker 1 (06:32):
I haven’t forgotten, love it. Sticking with the basics right there. That is absolutely awesome. And it was cool. I remember. Was it just one time that you came to actually my place and picked up a check?
Speaker 2 (06:43):
That was the third one. That was that pro probate deal. I met you down over there in Midtown, by the crock street market. Yeah.
Speaker 1 (06:50):
Oh, that’s right. That’s right. I remember we came down. We did the live video. So, um, just give me, remind me on that deal. What did we buy? What did we get it for? Like what’d you lock it up for?
Speaker 2 (07:02):
I locked that up for
Speaker 1 (07:03):
35 35. Did we do anything to it or no?
Speaker 2 (07:07):
Nope. Nope. Cash buyer bought it as is
Speaker 1 (07:10):
Who, who moved to property? How do we, how do we sell it?
Speaker 2 (07:13):
We sold it through my main man, the south side, legend, Jason Chester through a Cosa Cole wholesaling deal. I brought the property, he brought the buyer.
Speaker 1 (07:21):
That’s awesome. And this is another thing that I promote to people. Is that with partner-driven it’s just not us here corporately, but it’s the whole infrastructure. Jason actually is another gentleman that I worked with years ago and he’s just phenomenal, Jason tests and stuff, but nominal phenomenal guy. And so we brought Jason in on the backend to sell it. So we bought it for how much again, what do we get in for 35 35? And what do we, what adjacent ended up moving before
Speaker 2 (07:49):
I believe we ended up moving it for 50. For 50.
Speaker 1 (07:52):
Yeah. Not bad. We didn’t even have to touch it. Did we? No,
Speaker 2 (07:55):
No, no work. In fact it was pre-sold before I even did anything. It was pre-sold.
Speaker 1 (07:59):
That’s awesome. That’s awesome. So look, I finish off the same way. There’s going to be people looking at this and they’re like, well, gosh, does it make sense for me to partner? Does it make sense for me to give away 50% of the profit? Does it make sense for me to partner with a partner driven organization? Talk to them a little bit from your perspective.
Speaker 2 (08:16):
Okay. How you doing guys? Uh Jamar’s for, well, uh, Mr. Driving for dollars at this point. Um, listen, y’all won’t, like I said before, y’all don’t even know how hard it is to do you’re dealing on your own until you try it plugging in with the partner-driven team. I’m going to keep doing this forever until they kicked me out. Because having plugging into this infrastructure with Mary and Laura and Julie and everybody behind you, as soon as you turn the contract, then if the numbers make sense, it’s pretty much a done deal till you get to the closing table. So having that partner driven machine behind you is priceless. You know? Um, so if, if you are willing to move forward, especially if you haven’t done your first deal, that yet I highly highly recommend this partner-driven team, because they’re going to hold your hand.
Speaker 2 (08:58):
You got to do the work up front, but once you get the phone contract, once you get the deal to them, they’re going to hold your hand throughout the whole process. So this is the best thing smoking. If it comes to getting deals done, especially if you haven’t done it yourself with a wholesale fix and flip I’m telling y’all, you know, I’m not trying to sell you. I’m just speaking from my experience has changed my life. So if, if you know, if you want to try something that I can personally recommend it, the partner driven machine. Definitely.
Speaker 1 (09:24):
That’s awesome. Jamar, listen again. I appreciate you taking the time, say hello to mom and, uh, let’s I think didn’t you just have two more contracts this last week.
Speaker 2 (09:33):
Yeah. And I, I got my third, um, yesterday that I submit it. So, uh, Mary I’m Laura.
Speaker 1 (09:38):
Awesome. Great way to end it. I man, you’re the best. Thanks to
Speaker 2 (09:41):
Mari. Thank you, Pete. Thanks buddy. Bye-bye
Speaker 1 (09:47):
Dude. Awesome. Thank you so much.
Speaker 2 (09:50):
Thank you, Pete. Anything, anything y’all need Peter? Thanks bud. Thanks. See ya. Bye.
