Show Notes

Are you ready to start or grow your real estate investing business, but working with a low budget? Veteran real estate investor, Jonathan Greene, is on the show today to share his simple but powerful acquisition tactics that have proved successful over decades.

Jonathan’s micromarketing methods are perfect for people who can’t spend on pricey direct mail or cold calling services. His three example letters (called The Concerned Citizen, I Wanna Be Just Like You, and The Caretaker) are guaranteed to deliver results, whether you’re looking at the off or on market. And he’s not trying to sell you on a get-rich-quick formula, but rather give you a long-term strategy to build your business.

In this episode, Jonathan also describes his childhood and career as a lawyer, and how these experiences helped him succeed in the world of real estate. He goes over important skills that some new investors are missing, the best acquisition method for foreclosures, how the pandemic changes his investment strategy, and MORE.

This episode is full of tips and strategies that will take you from a naive to promising investor. Tune in now to hear ‘em all!
