Brad Woodall’s real estate investing journey began all the way back in 2005, when he was only 21. The market crash led him to a job in corporate America where he worked in fraud prevention and investigation for about 10 years. When his first son was born in 2015, he knew he wanted to be able to be around and involved in his children’s daily lives and knew that going from part-time to full-time real estate investing would provide him with the lifestyle he wanted.
Along with a new baby came a new mindset, and Brad dove back into investing while still working full-time. Like many of us, he binged on every podcast and book on real estate investing he could find. That same year, he set up his LeadPropeller website and now uses LeadPropeller Fuel to handle his site’s SEO (Brad mentions that he once got a lead from a blog post, and one even from a YouTube video thanks to his site ranking). In May of 2016, he sent out roughly 300 pieces of direct mail and in October of the same year he landed his first deal.
Fast forward to January of 2018, Brad was able to quit his job and go from part-time to full-time real estate investing. He goes on to discuss his typical walk-through method and what he’s found has worked for him in the past. With an offer already in his head, he tours the house with the seller and gets to know them and try to learn their motive for selling. Brad and Danny emphasize the importance of building rapport with your sellers. “Just be conversational, just be a real person. They just want a real person there to talk to,” says Brad, who prefers to take the time to sit and get to know the sellers and establishing a relationship beyond just the numbers.
