How To Build A Team For Flipping Houses and Investing In Real Estate With Darren Smith

Episode: 135

Darren Smith

Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with their guest Darren Smith as they talk about flipping houses, building the team, private lending, and so much more. Eliminate, automate, and delegate are the three key points to one of Darren’s most important focuses of work. In this episode, he’ll talk us through some of the processes he takes when making sure he gets everyone going in the right direction and places the right people behind particular goals.

 

Most success, for Darren, isn’t always all about the shiny and grand plans to achieving wealth, fame, and financial freedom. Rather, it is often about the most mundane and practical takes towards reaching targets and objectives. He believes focus and consistency, if not two of the many factors, are the most staple when trying to succeed in just about anything.

 

As someone who has already had the experience, Darren acknowledges two things when it comes to private lending. For him, it is an option that carries a lot of promise; at the same time, a tool that every real estate investor should be cautious and smart about.

 

About Darren Smith:

 

After serving for over five years in the Army, Darren has spent the last seventeen years buying and selling real estate around the country. His true passion is helping people with their homes no matter their situation and then helping the neighborhood by fixing up the homes he is able to buy.

 

His dedication to the credence that “Every Seller Must Benefit!” is the guiding force that has allowed “Sell My House to Smith” to grow into the premier home buyer in El Paso and Pueblo counties. Darren’s greatest achievement has been to surround himself with an incredible team of industry and military veterans who are every bit as passionate about helping people as he is.

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!
