“I walked away from a great paying job.

#8: Transforming Real Estate Market Analysis with Kevin Kalkwarf, USMA ‘06
“I probably got about 10 years' worth of learning out of the six-month course, but the network is unbelievable. I found my CPAs and my tax team all through the course. The power of the network will enable me to scale and grow. I would have one property by myself quietly if I tried to do this for multiple years on my own, but now I know where I want to be in 20 years and I know exactly how to get there. It’s insane…and it’s continually helped me to balance everything.” - Kevin Kalkwarf (USMA ‘06)Kevin Kalkwarf (USMA ‘06) is a U.S. Army veteran, husband, and father who works as a Cloud Solutions Director at Microsoft. To say he is busy would be an understatement. Nonetheless, Kevin dove into real estate with little experience and a hunger to learn and take action. He dominated the Real Estate Accelerator course and totally transformed how we teach and understand market analysis in the process. Kevin’s three investment properties have already appreciated by 10% and he’s looking forward to acquiring three additional properties each year in order to reach his financial freedom goals. With his foresight and fortitude, we have no doubt he’ll achieve this and more! In this episode, we discuss:Why Kevin decided to invest in real estate during a very busy season in his lifeHow the military veteran network helped Kevin overcome his fear of real estate investingWhat motivated Kevin to create time-saving market analysis strategiesWhy Kevin’s investments are generating passive income and massive tax savings We also discuss how Kevin’s three unique properties diversified his portfolio and why the money you save by walking away from bad deals is just as valuable as the money you earn from great deals. Kevin also shares how being connected to a strong network has made it possible for him to invest in real estate while managing the balance between his busy personal and professional lives. Our lives are much improved for knowing Kevin and we hope his awesome story empowers you to achieve the financial freedom that you deserveConnect with Kevin:LinkedInIf you found this episode valuable, please share it with a friend or colleague.

#5: Using House Hacks to Tackle Financial Freedom with Brett Hadley, USAFA ‘05
“It's awesome that in the course itself, we talk a bit about house hacking and ask, how do we accelerate our financial freedom goals? This absolutely makes sense with where we're going, and where we want to be in our career. So it wasn't even a second thought and it’s a blessing to be a part of such a high volume of folks that are out there just making things happen. It's unbelievable how many people are doing things so drastically differently than when they started the course. It’s been a blessing.” - Brett Hadley (USAFA ‘05)When it comes to real estate success, Brett Hadley shot out of the gate when he began the Real Estate Accelerator and he’s been unstoppable ever since. As a former Hospital Administration & Operations Officer in the U.S. Air Force, Brett understands that people and processes, relationships and communication are essential to success. In less than a year, and in addition to his day job, Brett created an S Corp and has invested in several multi-family properties.In this episode, we discuss:Why Brett decided to join the Real Estate AcceleratorHow Brett managed to escape a bad deal at the last minute What quadplex properties are and how the BURRRR method worksHow Brett is using creative financing to fund his dealsWe also discuss why talking with property tenants before closing a deal is important and why creative financing can be a lot easier than bank financing. We also talk about three strategies that can help you fund your deals if you’re short on cash flow. Brett also shares how his father went from real estate skeptic to real estate investor as a result of Brett’s success. We love witnessing Brett’s accomplishments and it’s only the beginning of his journey. We can’t wait to see his story continue to unfold and hope his experiences motivate you on your journey to financial freedom. Connect with Brett:LinkedInEmailIf you found this episode valuable, please share it with a friend or colleague.

#4: Overcoming Adversity and Empowering Others through Real Estate with Christian Gann, USAFA ‘15
“It’s been, unlike anything I would have predicted. I thought I was going to learn some strategies and figure out how to buy land and make it pay for itself. And now I run three businesses and I'm actively doing stuff every day; it took off. And honestly, the videos on the course are not the most valuable thing in the class at all. It's the people that you're working with and talking with. It’s not by any means anything I would have found on my own.” - Christian Gann (USAFA ‘15)We’re so excited to share Air Force veteran, Christian Gann’s real estate success story with you. In just two months, we watched Christian go from being a real estate amateur to a real estate professional taking down million dollar deals. Prior to joining the Real Estate Accelerator, Christian had little cash, little experience, and few contacts in the world of real estate. Now, he not only has three successful businesses, but he is also empowering those around him and inviting others, including his family members, to join him on the road to financial freedom while teaching us new things in the process. Christian’s creative and innovative investment strategies are not only creating cash flow, they are changing lives for the better.In this episode, we discuss:How Christian turned childhood adversity into opportunity Why mindset is key to successWhat empowered Christian to start three profitable real estate businesses How Christian helped his mother achieve financial freedom and live her dreamWe also discuss how the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated Christian’s interest in real estate and talk about the innovative strategies he’s developed that are now accessible to everyone. We also reflect on why it’s important to learn about real estate “hacks” sooner rather than later because of the positive impacts it can have not only on your own life, but on the lives of those you care about. Getting to know Christian has been both inspiring and educational and we hope his story inspires you to take action and be bold in chasing after your interests.Connect with Christian:LinkedInIf you found this episode valuable, please share it with a friend or colleague.

#3: Finding Creative Ways to Fund Your Deal with Taylor Wing, USMA ‘18
“There’s a Kiyosaki quote that I like a lot. He says, I never say that I can't afford it. He says, I'm going to figure out how I can afford it. And that inspired how I financed a lot of these deals, because I don't have that much to work with.”   -Taylor WingTaylor Wing (USMA ‘18) is one of the youngest members to ever go through the Real Estate Investing Accelerator. In less than one year, Taylor went from owning zero properties with no access to capital and little knowledge about real estate to investing in six real estate deals using a variety of creative funding methods and acquisition strategies. If that’s not impressive enough, Taylor is also a full-time Operations Officer in the U.S. Army.In this episode, we discuss:What compelled Taylor to get involved in real estate at such a young ageHow Taylor used a VA loan to fund his first real estate deal What the BURRR method is and how Taylor will get 80% ROI on his first BURRR dealWhy owning real estate is a triple-hedge threat against increasing inflation ratesWe also discuss how to overcome any doubts you have about being an entrepreneur, why you can invest in real estate while keeping your day job, and why driving for dollars is sometimes the best way to find your next real estate deal. I also provide some insights into today’s markets and Taylor shares upcoming deals on the horizon and why you don’t need a lot of money to start investing in real estate. If you’re young and interested in real estate investing, we hope Taylor’s story inspires you to take the plunge and invest in your first property sooner rather than later!Would you like to join the upcoming course?Schedule a call: the website:

“The power of two, three, four or five is way better than one, right? My dad will say, two heads are better than one, right? Yeah. I've got capital. I've got some experience.
