Buying a house while on a flight to Bali!

3 Replies

Systems work! On our way from the Philippines to Bali our company and our partner inked up a nice rehab! Our assistant answered the call early this week (I had no idea about the lead) the seller was motivated and so she set the appointment for our partner, he went to the appointment today and locked it up. We landed to a text saying we just bought x house for $150k close on the 30th! 

Since we have been gone starting November 28th we have bought 3 houses, sold 2, and put 2 more on the market. We have also had over 40 seller calls answered, 7 appointments, 4 offers made, and multiple seller follow ups. 

Now we don't plan on doing this all the time but this was our first test to see if this was a business or a job! Ready to get back and hit it hard for 2018! We have some big goals and couldn't do it with out our great partner and our assistant! 

I know the feeling. While in Australia visiting family (2012) I received a couple of 2am (Australia) phone calls from my agent & we did 3 deals. Paid for the entire trip.

We still 'hold' them, although they were eventually sold we still hold the notes!!!
