Northern California Real Estate Investor
Phil Pustejovsky is a first class real estate mentor and has completely changed my life. Prior to joining the Freedom Mentor Apprentice Program, I had tried to invest in real estate on my own. But I just bumbled around for a very long time. I would go to the free seminars, attend the webinars, even purchase a course here and there, but no matter what I tried, I always seemed to come up a day late and a dollar short. Either other investors would bid me out and get to the deal before me or the ones I could actually get to were already too over priced.
I decided to join Phil's program because I knew that I needed a true blue mentor. Someone who could guide me step by step through this jungle of a business and help me achieve the results I knew I was capable of. To be clear, I was no idiot. In my corporate career, I had spent several years towards the end in training the next generation. I had a ton of different skills that should have translated into immediate success with real estate investing but it didn't. What I discovered was that flipping houses was not easy like it shows on TV and their is enormous amounts of competition, especially in my area of Northern California.
When I first got started, I was very nervous because even though I got through the interviews and was accepted, there was a substantial upfront investment and I was agreeing to share in the profits. But from watching Phil's videos, reading his book and checking out reviews from others who had been a part of the program (not to mention his own life bio going from rags to riches and a huge net worth starting from being homeless), I knew that I was making the right move.
Once I got started, I hit the ground running and every road block I was presented with, Phil (and his team) helped me overcome them. Honestly, I have no idea how any newbie stands a chance in this business without someone like Phil's program to be there for them. The way we closed my first deal I had never read about before, never learned from a local investor at a local club, nor was there a video about it. Phil literally invented it. But it allowed me to earn a little more than $18,000 without using any cash or credit or anything. It was remarkable. The other people in the deal (agents, title company, etc) couldn't believe it either. They were all still scratching their heads at what had been accomplished too. That's when I realized that Phil was a real estate genius. He was operating on an entirely new level and allowing to come along for the ride.
Some personal tragedies struck and I had to take a brief hiatus. When I returned to action, Phil was right there to help get me back in the swing of things and boy had the business changed. But Phil had a kinds of new approaches and sure enough, they worked like gangbusters.
I don't know if Phil will ever read this but I am just so appreciative of what he has taught me and I hope this review shows my thanks for a job well done. For those of you looking to truly become a successful real estate investor, the Freedom Mentor Apprentice Program is as good as it gets out there. I've seen a lot of other programs and nothing comes close to comparing with it. Phil is absolutely wonderful to work with and is far more knowledgable than anyone else you will deal with in real estate; it's amazing how much more him and his team knows that agents, title companies, mortgage brokers, etc. Like I said before, they are on a whole different level. Phil Pustejovsky, keep up the good work!
