Max joins me today to share his journey from math teacher extraordinaire to real estate rockstar. He explains how he flipped close to 100 properties in just over two years and how a market dip in 2017 saw him pivot to find his niche in the industry. He describes how he discovered his senior market and how he approached this demographic to make money and help seniors who might not have the support or know-how to invest. Max discusses how he became a respected and lucrative speaker on the real estate circuit by talking for free to 25 people at his local church. He also shares his tips and advice for anyone about to embark on their own real estate investing business.
"What was important to me was I want to do
profitable deals. I want to do deals where, when I was working with
the seller, there wasn't a lot of resistance to my offer." – Max
"I wish I had gone niche sooner, and I wish I had stopped using hard money sooner and started using more private money." – Max Keller
"When I started understanding how to pour into other people, and I got that opportunity- teaching -, and I saw the returns were exponential? It just changed the way that I thought about business and personal interactions." – Max Keller
"Folks that are in there and are making it happen and they're looking for how to build your own business just don't ever give up." – Max Keller
