You don't know who David Greene is?? Why should you care what David Greene says??

Check this out:

David Greene is a real estate investor/agent/author/entrepreneur/police officer right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and KILLIN' IT!!!!

Greene started off working as a police officer in 2007 as a Deputy Sheriff in Contra Costa County, and transferred to the BART Police in 2010.

For the last 6 years, he's worked 90-100 hours a week as a police officer and saved up all the money. He started using the money to buy investment property and flip the occasional house. In 2009-2012 he bought rentals in the Manteca area. When those became too expensive, he started buying out of state rental property in Arizona. In Arizona, Greene learned to manage rehab projects and put teams together to do the work that was needed to buy, rehab, and manage the properties.

Last year, he started ramping up this process in Florida. he bought, rehabbed, financed, and rented out 10 properties and flipped a few as well.
Last year Greene was also featured on the BiggerPockets podcast!! His episode was so well received, that he was asked to write articles for their online blog. Greene was also given a book deal by the BiggerPockets publishing arm, and we are eagerly waiting for it's launch!!

Although Greene continues his service as an Officer, Real Estate Investing has taken the front seat. He is now so busy that he has a full time assistant, and working on growing his team. As a Realtor, Greene is also at the top in his office.

He now makes enough money from his rentals income to pay all his bills, and therefore able to save 100% of his income, making him a “Hundred Percenter!!” Isn't that what we are all striving for??

Although Greene was already a millionaire by the age of 30, he still continues to work, invest, and perfect the craft of wealth building through real estate. He is definitely someone we could all learn a thing or two from.

Oh, and you should check out his cool blog!! (

Learn How You Can Profit from Promissory Notes (It’s Easier Than You Think)

I've just set up a “Note School” class for July 22. In it, you'll learn all about real estate, or promissory, notes.

You can read all about the class here.

About the class:

I've recently learned a lot about real estate notes, aka promissory notes, or just notes for short.

And in my research, I found a great class that I want to share with you.

July 22, 2017 (a Saturday), I'm holding a class in Concord, run by the guys at Note School.

It's an all-day event starting at 9am. From 9 to noon, Joe Varnadore will teach how we can benefit from getting in the notes business. At noon, we'll break for lunch (I'm providing lunch, so don't worry).

Then at 1pm, we'll reconvene with Joe and he'll share his infinite notes wisdom until 5pm.

First 20 tickets sold will be $20 (that is a steal of a deal), thereafter tickets will be $50.

Obviously, it's best to get your tickets now. And definitely, mark the date!


5 Rental Market Predictions for 2017

Rental market predictions for 2017

Will the rental market go up…or down?

The post below has been curated from Zillow. Read the entire article here.

The rental market has been growing at an accelerated pace for several years — with rental appreciation outpacing home value appreciation in many regions — but as the rate of growth has started to slow, what can we expect in 2017?

Zillow’s senior economist, Dr. Skylar Olsen, predicts that rent growth, which peaked in July 2015 and has since slowed in some areas, will continue at a steady but more moderate pace across the U.S., with notable exceptions in hot markets.

Here are five top predictions for the rental market this year.

1. Rental affordability will improve as incomes rise and rent growth slows

2. The homeownership rate will go up as millennials age

3. New development will prioritize smaller homes close to public transit, but many renters will still be pushed to the suburbs

4. New homes will cost more as construction becomes more expensive

5. Interest rates will increase (no, really!)

What are your thoughts about these rental marketing predictions? Spot on, way off, or well…?
