Zach Betters started investing in real estate in 2015 with his wife Stephanie. After taking 4 months to get their first deal, they jumped into it and did 11 deals that first year. Since then, they have been on an upward trajectory, 27 deals in 2017. So far in 2018 they have done 49 deals and with a recent merger are now on pace to explode even further. Along the way they have branched off into a Social Media Marketing company (Social Media REI) and have a few more secret businesses in planning. All of this while both working, up until recently, full time in healthcare as a PA and NP and raising three little ones.
Zach shares with Danny how he was able to achieve such growth by “developing a team around [his] weaknesses,” and a constant update to the processes and systems that his business is using. He mentions that every business has problems, you’re problems just change. By recognizing this, Zach and his team are able to actively stay on top of their business and its growth.
When discussing how he got started in the industry, Zach and wife were working 12-14 hour shifts, then they would come home and eat, workout, and take care of their three little ones. This makes it no surprise that their first hire was a virtual assistant from the Philippines to help him sift through leads and answer any calls. They’ve since built an entire team that works in combination with their established systems to really get the most of everyone in the business. *Humble Brag* Zach also shares a story about a time in which his LeadPropeller website helped him find his first private money lender JUST by having a credible site- even though he hadn’t done a single deal yet at this point (total humble brag)!! Zach also shares with Danny his excitement for the upcoming release of FlipPilot (December 5th, sign up now!) and says that he is very much looking forward to saying goodbye to programs like Google Drive and Excel for tracking KPI’s. “If it were up to me, it wouldn’t get done,” he says in regards to sifting through data. Luckily, FlipPilot is already ahead of him on that one with everything in one place so you can start working ON your business instead of IN it.
