Real estate investor and author Jim Toner know how rough it can be to be profitable in real estate consistently. In a piece entitled, “How I Survived the Real Estate Game,” he writes about how despite his history of success, he ended up leaving real estate investing in 2010.
According to Toner, he had started 25 years before, wholesaling properties with little money. However, he decided to exit the field after a devastating experience with a real estate broker, who swindled him and his clients. After deciding that all of the government interference and scamming in the industry was ruining real estate for him, Jim Toner began working with business owners, teaching them to increase their business using celebrity positioning. He also penned a #1 Amazon bestseller and appeared in national media.
A friend pointed out to him that his credentials were too good to be sitting the market out. He decided to go back to investing, but set some very specific ground rules. The first thing he decided was that he would only operate in particular markets that he found to be profitable. The second was that he would recruit the top investor in each market to launch his program.
According to Affiliate Dork, after narrowing down his choices to five markets, Jim Toner rolled out his program in Akron, Ohio, a market where he had a great deal of expertise, having done hundreds of deals there. By relying on full-time investors instead of gurus, Toner hopes to build the best real estate investment training program in the world. In addition, he is planning a new podcast called “Band of Rebels,” which he hopes will help regular people make money in the real estate market.
Despite the setbacks he has endured, Jim Toner realized that backing down would mean letting the scammers win. He wants to set the example for teaching how real estate investing can be profitable instead of hawking worthless tapes and books. Know more about Jim by checking his crunchbase profile.
