Neither Andy Heller nor his real estate partner Scott Frank, ever intended to become full-time real estate investors. However, in their approximately 40 years of combined real estate investing, they have developed a long term real estate investing strategy that has allowed them to make loads of money while minimizing their time, effort and headaches.

On a part-time basis, while involved in successful non-real estate careers and putting their families first, Scott and Andy have bought, rented and sold approximately 100 homes. Additionally, in many years, they have made more money in their 2-5 hour a week “side real estate investing job” than in their 40+ hour per weekday job.

Over the years, Andy and Scott learned a lot. They eventually developed the “Buy Low, Rent Smart, Sell High” program, which is a grounded and realistic wealth generating method. You can use it to buy one home or dozens. Andy and Scott are living proof that it can be done, and it does not take a lot of money or a lot of time….just the desire to make it happen.

In 2005, FORTUNE MAGAZINE recognized the “Buy Low, Rent Smart, Sell High” program among the top five real estate wealth building strategies. After the Fortune recognition, requests came in for Andy and Scott to speak and teach others what they have learned during their real estate investing career. Shortly thereafter Andy and Scott formed their educational company called “Regular Riches”. Andy and Scott selected the name “Regular Riches” to show that “regular guys” and “regular gals” just like them can achieve real estate riches.

Andy was born in Canada, raised in Florida, has lived for many years in Georgia and California, and has studied real estate markets throughout North America. He has helped countless people in their efforts to realize their dreams, and he is ready to share his knowledge to simply and easily put you on the road to financial freedom.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • Why Andy calls himself an “accidental investor”, and how he has structured his business model
  • Why they key to Andy’s REO (real estate owned) model lies in timing and in tracking pre-foreclosures as early as possible
  • Why Andy sticks exclusively to post-foreclosure, and why he prefers to deal with the banks directly
  • What Andy does with the REO properties once he has successfully purchased them, and why he likes lease options
  • Which circumstances cause Andy to wholesale a property rather than deciding to lease it
  • Why buying foreclosure properties from banks can help you develop a working relationship with them
  • Why buying from banks should be considered an integral part of any wholesaling business
  • How to get an exceptional deal on Andy’s three-part course, normally selling for almost $2000
  • Why there is certain to be another recession in the future, and why preparation will help you survive it
  • Why you need to have a business model ready now, so that when the market inevitably softens you’re in a good position

Josh Elledge is an adult man with a child-like, irrational fear of umbrellas. You could ask him to explain–but if he could–it wouldn’t be an irrational fear, now would it? A nice midwestern boy from Michigan, Josh also used to be fat. Not just chubby, or the owner of a now-trendy “dad bod,” but seriously overweight (ask to see his old drivers’ license photo). Ever the problem solver, he lost 55 lbs through ‘the couponing diet’ and now he enjoys going to restaurants that serve chicken waffles and biscuits, and ordering the salad. Just to test his mental toughness.

Josh is a serial entrepreneur who builds the companies he needs most in the world. In 2014, He launched UpMyInfluence (previously upendPR) to help entrepreneurs like himself attract the perfect audiences and grow their brands without the crazy costs and contracts associated with traditional PR companies. Since then, UpMyInfluence (UMI) has evolved into a purpose-driven platform bent on totally DEMOCRATIZING access to influence. Josh wholeheartedly believes UMI has a moral imperative to help entrepreneurs own their expertise, share their wisdom, and serve the world with their collective messages. Oh, and to help our members grow revenue too!
UMI was the natural outgrowth of his first startup, SavingsAngel.com. Josh founded the consumer savings platform in 2007 to bring in what he most needed at the time (namely, more money). Armed with a background in information technology and Internet development, Josh’s technologic tinkering cut his family-of-five’s monthly grocery bill by half and created the most comprehensive coupon and sale-matching service available. SavingsAngel.com soon become a major operation employing up to 50 employees and grossing more than $6 million in sales with less than $500 in advertising spent.

When other entrepreneurs began knocking on his door desperate for the magic formula that would bring similar success, his new mission in life was born! Today, Josh is known as one of the foremost experts in online influence and authority. He’s personally worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs – working to turn them into media celebrities.

Never shy in front of an audience, Josh is a frequent speaker at business and startup conferences including Social Media Marketing World and a Tony Robbins event for his Business Mastery grads. He’s appeared as an electrifying podcast guest more than 100 times. He’s a weekly consumer expert on Fox 35 Orlando and News 13, writes a syndicated column for nine newspapers (with total readership above 1.1 million readers), and regularly appears on more than 75 TV stations across the country. All told, Josh has appeared in the media more than 2000 times.

Passionate about his family, physical fitness (an avid fitness geek and 5K to marathon runner), and breaking out of Escape Rooms, Josh now lives in Orlando with his wife and three children.
The Michigan native’s exuberance and natural curiosity have fueled his life’s work as a journalist, technology specialist, entrepreneur and service-oriented family man. Josh served in the US Navy and earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in family science/therapy from Brigham Young University.

  • Why it’s critical to keep your website professional-looking and up-to-date, and to refresh it every three years
  • Why you should look to take your LinkedIn profile to the next level to ensure its visibility

Mitch Stephen has been a self-employed RE investor for 20+ years. His real estate investing career started at the age of 23 when he read “Nothing Down” by Robert Allen.

REAL ESTATE INVESTOR: Mitch, together with his wife, Tommi, and his daughter, Shannon purchased their fair share of local houses.
