How to Scale a Virtual Wholesaling Business to 50+ Deals In Your First Year!

Episode:  127

Frank Scappaticci and John Plumstead of Greyline Investments

Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guests Frank Scappaticci and John Plumstead as they share their unexpected success in the field of real estate. They'll talk about how they went from trying out property acquisition, deciding on wholesaling, attracting a handful of leads, and to what they now call their accidental company: Gray Line Investments.

 

John and Frank played as linebackers during their years of studying and eventually became active duty armies together. The two continued the ties even outside of duty when they got into real estate; while Frank was involved with single-family homes – John was into multifamily.

 

In this episode, listen as John and Frank show us the manner and tips that helped them scale their team and close fifty deals in the year 2020 – all despite the year's uncertainties and setbacks. 

 

About Gray Line Investments:

 

A veteran-led and operated organization that places high importance on integrity and hiring top talent. Gray Line Investment’s team has a wide array of professional experiences outside of the Army, varying from finance to performance psychology.

 

Real estate investing is what binds them and what has brought them together. Gray Line Investments is simultaneously conservative and aggressive; they always underwrite deals conservatively but act with conviction once they make a decision.

My name is David Pere, I am an active duty Marine, and have realized that service members and the working class use the phrase "I don't get paid enough" entirely too often. The reality is that most often our financial situation is self-inflicted. After having success with real estate investing, I started From Military to Millionaire to teach personal finance and real estate investing to service members and the working class. As a result, I have helped many of my readers increase their savings gap, and increase their chances of achieving financial freedom! - Click here to SUBSCRIBE: https://bit.ly/2Q3EvfE to the channel for more awesome videos!
