I'm in Training

I recently came home from an intensive 2-day training in Columbus Ohio. My husband and I attended Lou Brown’s Street Smart* Millionaire Jump Start training course. It was a full 2-day event; jam-packed with information on how to start a successful real estate investment business. If you’ve been a subscriber to my web site,, for a while, then you know that I have always been interested in real estate investing for passive income. Although I have a nice tax lien portfolio, my husband and I are looking for ways to invest in real estate for consistent income so that he can quit his job.

Of all the real estate investing seminars that I have been to, and programs that I have purchased, Lou Brown’s Street Smart* system provided me with the most useful information and tools in order to finally get in the game. I found that Lou provides his students with the best prices for state of the art technical tools for the serious real estate investor. Tools like Prop Stream, a web-based, multi-tasking software program that can find foreclosures and pre-foreclosures in any city in the US, get comparables on properties, calculate closing costs, and more. It even has a mortgage accelerator, to help you pay off your mortgage quicker. And the best part about it is that you get a 30-day guarantee to try out the system and make sure that it works in your area.

What made this training event even more valuable was the free coaching sessions with certified lifestyle and business coaches. We met privately with a business coach who helped us put together our business plan. When we left the Millionaire Jump Start training we left with our own business plan that was tailored to our needs and our goals. We already had purchased Lou Brown’s Whole Enchilada Jr. (the first 5 books and CDs in his Street Smart investing program), and now we have a road map to get from where we are now to where we want to be!

I found this program to be the best that I have purchased yet. I say that not only because the Street Smart* program takes you step-by-step through buying real estate, negotiation deals, and selling properties for the most profit. But it also contains all of the forms that you need for every step, including contracts, deeds, and affidavits. It’s like having your own lawyer in a box! But it doesn’t stop there; it also goes into asset protection and trusts, including land trusts and personal property trusts. And this program provides all of the paper work that you need to write your own trusts agreements.

Lou Brown’s Street Smart* Real Estate Investing program is not your typical real estate investor training. Lou teaches his students how to purchase property “subject to” the existing mortgage, something that many investors think is not possible in today’s market. The biggest “Ah-haa” that I took away from this training is that with the Street Smart* way of buying properties, sellers would even pay me to take their house. How would you like to find a seller willing to pay you to take their property?
