Accredited Income Property Investment Specialist (AIPIS) (general)

Russ O'Hare has been experiencing problems with Results Property Management in Kansas City, Missouri. He is one of the home owners at Creekside Village and has a number of complaints and allegations over the way the firm has been managing the properties. He shares his story to Jason Hartman. 

 

Key Takeaways:

[3:50] Russ was first told that it was Curry Real Estate managing the properties, not Results. 

[8:15] Metrowide Building invoices has the same address as Results. Are they owned by the same people? 

[10:25] $2,500 was charged to the HOA for trimming trees and bushes for less than 8 hours of work. 

[16:18] Russ's wife made copies of invoices when they requested to see the books. 

[20:05] It seems the investor Isaac Bencuya and Results have some kind of arrangement with each other. 

[25:20] The club house, pool, and one of Isaac's apartment buildings run on one electric meter and that bill goes to the HOA. 

[27:15] Isaac setup a proposal for the home owners to basically give him the pool and club house. 

[30:15] Dave Zeller, Isaac Bencuyz, and Quentin Kearney said they had no affiliation with Nick Porto when Nick was representing the HOA. 

[40:05] During this proposal, Dave Zeller's attorney fees were charged to the HOA and not out of Isaac's pocket.

[37:35] All of the invoices Bobbie received looked wrong. 

[40:40] Bobbie can't talk to her own management company anymore, because they know she's building a case against them. 

[47:00] Results has been known to intimate other management companies so that they stay away. 

[50:55] Bobbie is trying to combine a number of cases against Results to make the case even stronger.

In today’s AIPIS show, Jason Hartman talks to the founder of the Wealth Revolution Group, Marco Robinson. Together, they discuss topics from how realistic financial freedom really is to the importance of considering both the demographics of an area, as well as the potential of a property itself. Budding investors or entrepreneurs should be sure to listen out for this top-class industry advice.

 

Takeaways

02.30 – In order to achieve financial freedom, you have to really understand exactly what it is.

04.30 – For those researching demographics, the best place to start is census statistics and local databases.

07.00 – You need to look at the situation and at plans for future construction – you don’t want to invest in a property and have an identical building put up six months later.

10.00 – Economic rent is a principle which focuses on what makes a particular building special enough to warrant that higher price.

14.00 – A particular country can seem great for investing, but you have to study its dips and cycles in order to really understand what you’re committing to and when the best time to invest is.

18.00 – You can’t learn anything from mainstream education about financial freedom or investing in real estate so the only way to really learn is to be mentored by someone who’s got to where you want to be.
