In this special episode of Escaping The REI Newbie Zone Chris Bruce talks about a virtual deal he closed while in Havana Cuba. It was a small deal of $3,500 but only took a few hours to get done. The profit was $7,000 but ended up splitting the deal with another wholesaler. Chris talks about how he found the deal, negotiated it got it under contract, and partnered up with another investor on the deal. Chris never physically met the seller or buyer and was able to make $3,500 while on vacation in Havana, Cuba.
In this special episode of Escaping The REI Newbie Zone Chris Bruce talks with real estate investor Scott Jelinek. Scott has been investing in real estate since the early 90’s. He’s completed every transaction under the sun, from wholesaling, rehabbing, owner financed deals, and owns a large portfolio of rentals. He’s currently closing 3-5 deals a month in the Virginia market. Whats interesting is Scott brings us back to when he was making $100,000 a month. He had a huge over head between marketing budgets as well as paying staff. He even talks about how on the first couple of deals he would take a loss just to break even on the expenses.
Many people dream of doing 20+ deals of month, but what they don’t see is the overhead and stress that comes with scaling a business that large. Since then Scott has scaled his business down, he’s still making a lot of money, and has a portfolio of 70+ rentals which produce passive income. Now he has the time and freedom to travel. He takes month long trips out the country with his wife and daughter. Scott has really built up a business around his desired lifestyle.

There’s a buyer market then a seller market, which one are you in? You’ll be able to find out by listening to this podcast episode. You’ll also know how to prepare yourself for huge opportunities that come with the shift of the market. Also when it’s time to sell everything and wait.
So by now unless you’ve been living under a rock. You should know about the #1 social media site in the world Facebook…
But what you might not know is that in the third quarter of 2016, Facebook had 1.79 billion monthly active users. In the third quarter of 2012, the number of active Facebook users had surpassed 1 billion. That’s a lot of freaking people especially when the U.S. population is only 321 million +. So the chances of you finding someone you know like a long lost relative or friend is about 8/10…
But that’s not it…
The chances of you finding your ideal seller (motivated seller) is even higher… With the new updates to Facebooks data they have on everyone of it’s users it allows for huge opportunity for YOU and me. Yeah I hate to break it to you but Facebook knows everything about us. Where we live, where we shop even the last time you was on the net surfing porn… Bad boy or gal…
Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone…
The opportunity for us is that with a click of a button we can get in front of the eyeballs of a motivated seller. Facebook allows you to run ads right into the newsfeed . Ever logged in and just happened to be scrolling and saw one of these?
Yeah well you’ve been targeted my friend. The advertiser paid to have this show up right in front of you eyes. Chances are you probably clicked on several of the ads presented to you. Am I right? You may have even wondered how the heck was I just looking at this on their website and then I come on to Facebook and see the same thing? It’s called Dynamic Retargeting it’s simple and I’ll be teaching it on my upcoming bootcamp.
So is this the end of direct mail campaigns? No, I don’t think that direct mail will be going anywhere. We’re still using it to pull in a lot of deals. However we have saw our response rate start to decrease with smaller campaigns. We’re spending twice as much now to pull in the same amount of deals. So for those of you that don’t have a huge budget you could be in trouble trying to compete with other experienced investors. Facebook advertising is considered the “NEW school wave of marketing.”
No one is teaching it because frankly majority of them just don’t know how to. The rest of them don’t want the cat to get out the bag to cause more competition. In fact the people in my Mastermind warned me not to even share this with you. I have an abundant mindset I believe whatever I give I get 10X back in return.
So the other day I recorded a Facebook Live streaming video where I walked you through how to use this new wave of marketing to get leads and deals. I even show my campaigns I’m running and how I’m only spending $10 a day to get results. Here’s the video.
So what’s next? How can you learn how to use Facebook to start finding leads and deals in your local or virtual market? Well you’re in luck my friend. You’ve asked the right questions…

In this episode of Escaping The REI Newbie Zone, Chris Bruce talks about his two experiences while traveling to Houston and Miami. Chris talks about the big mental paradigm shift that has led to him being more successful and how you can apply this to your life and business. To many times in business we think only about the benefit of ourselves. Which is normal trait of most humans, but we forget that our income is directionally proportional to the amount of value we provide to the market.
From partying with other real estate investors in Houston to speaking in front of FUBU and Shark Tanks own Daymond John in Miami was one helluva week.
