Successful Michigan investment firm is teaching agents how to flip this market rightside up
After nearly 4 years and just under 200 real estate transactions, Erik Stark and Steve Mills had a lengthy conversation with well known con ed teacher Jack Waller who agreed that all real estate agents should be learning how to invest, especially in these times. “We see agents who are selling 50+ properties to investors all year long, but none of them ever seem to do their own deals” says Erik Stark, janitor/vice president of Michigan Property Superstore.
“It creates a level of respect when you show an agent how to analyze a deal, find funding, put a contractor to work, help clean up the community, get a tax paying homeowner in there and begin doing the flip side of the traditional listing for commissions type sale” adds Erik.
Since joining forces in 2008 Erik and Steve have created a powerhouse for investing by building a team of professionals that help companies grow in times like these. From a board of advisors to attorneys to title companies and contractors, Erik and Steve believe in an abundant mentality for business growth and the more people you can begin introducing yourself to and see the level of expertise you bring to the market place, the more people who want in and it just keeps growing.
Whats more, is that Erik and Steve are firm believers in education. “We have a doctorates in entrepreneurial eduction. Most of it was taught by our business coaches but surely there is no replacement for “nose to the grindstone, in the trenches experience” says Erik. Having learned from Than Merrill who stars on the hit TV show A&E’s Flip This House and a handful of other well know real estate educators, Erik and Steve truly believe they have cut their learning curve by nearly a decade and did the level of volume in a few years that takes some people nearly ten years to complete.
Now its time to give back says the dynamic duo. “We meet so many agents, new investors, struggling employee’s who just want a glimpse of something real. Something that actually works. And real estate is what we are passionate about”.
The team over at Michigan Property Superstore has began documenting everything they do in there business that they accredit to their success. From marketing for properties to using the Multiple Listing Service to find hot deals to meeting with private lenders and just how exactly you buy a property on Monday and sell it Friday with a happy seller and buyer on each end of the transaction.
“This is basically an in depth, real life peek into our business. We are exposing everything we do in our business that helps us help others. Thats where the real capital of real estate is…in the people”
