Hey, I’m Nick Ruiz & I’m a twice self-made Real Estate Entrepreneur, which I’ll get to in just a second…
I say twice because well… I went bankrupt during the big housing crash in 2008. I was completely depressed and broke in every sense of the word.
Emotionally, Spiritually & of course… Financially. But it wasn’t always this way.
You see, I bought my first property in 1999 – I was 19 years old at the time and I’d never made a cent in any business.
I was as “green” as they get. I always knew I was an entrepreneur at heart though, and I was eager to get started.
After falling in love with the idea of buying and selling property, I bought a course on real estate investment and sunk my teeth into it. A few weeks later when browsing through my local newspaper – I came across an ad that read like:
Immediately I was excited – the words “motivated seller” had the word BARGAIN ringing in my ears.
I called the seller and met him at the property. I was an incredibly nervous fresh faced kid who had no idea what he was doing.
Maybe you can relate…
The next day I rang him, closed the deal, and after a few months I fixed the property, brought in 2 tenants and was making $500/month profit.
Almost immediately, I borrowed against this property and bought another duplex. Making the same amount on that property, I was a 21 year old kid with a $1,000/month passive investment.
12 months on, I sold the first property for a $22,000 profit, and 6 months later, the second duplex was sold for a $35,000 CASH windfall.
I really LOVED this. I thought to myself, “Why would anyone work?”… This is a no brainer.
Over the next few years, and into my mid-20s, I built a multi-million dollar net worth buying
rental properties. I borrowed millions of dollars from banks. I had almost 70 properties and was flying high.
It was during this time I learned the concept of ‘wholesaling’.
Wholesaling undoubtedly is the secret to my success. It changed my life and this single strategy literally EXPLODED my income. But it was missing one key ingredient – I just didn’t know it at the time.
I’ll get back to that in just a second…
At this point, I thought I was bulletproof. Completely indestructible.
I was flying high, running a large business with full time employees, multiple construction crews and almost 100 tenants. I was rehabbing and selling houses on top of the rental business and was also aggressively wholesaling.
And then… everything came CRASHING down.
In the blink of an eye my entire empire collapsed. It didn’t hit the ground though…. it plummeted right through the floor.
It was 2008 and the mortgage crisis emerged. The largest crash since the great depression.
My property values collapsed and lost 75-90% of their value.
I reached a point where my mortgages were 5-7x the value of each property, and I was completely upside down on millions of dollars’ of real estate.
The tables had completely turned and I was freaking out. This disaster forced me into bankruptcy.
I hate to admit it but my life was an absolute mess. I couldn’t believe this was happening. I was Nick, the young successful entrepreneur, and now I was belly up?
How could I show my face to everyone I knew? How was I going to support my family?
If you’ve been in this place… let me just say I KNOW you. I KNOW how it feels. I have experienced all ends of the success/failure ladder.
I know what it’s like to live so tight that you even have to question one or two dollar purchases. If you are going through financial struggles and aren’t quite where you want to be, I know the feeling. The knot that forms in the pit of your stomach, the agony you feel in your chest as you battle to take one step at a time…
I’ve been there.
The depth of this trial was so severe nothing could have fully prepared me for it. NOTHING!
So how did I bounce back and get out of this deep hole?
I exhausted all of my existing resources and contacts. Anywhere I thought that there was an
ounce of opportunity for a deal, I went at it full force. I pushed and pushed and pushed.
One day, I was “hounding” one of my attorney contacts, he had a client trying to get rid of a property that was exactly what I was looking for. I bought it, rehabbed it and sold it for a nice profit. I was BACK.
After that, I had the confidence I needed. Slowly & cautiously, but surely, I would ‘wholesale’ property, one after the other… using a secret system I developed called the “Single Family Triad™”.
It completely “economy proofed” my business – so I knew I could win in any scenario.
You might be wondering why I’m telling you all this?
Well, I’m often asked the secrets to my success, and while there are many – its this unique system I’ve developed that truly makes what I teach unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
And I’ve decided to break it down in step by step detail for you on my brand new, FREE training:
“How to Flip Houses You Don’t Even Own without using any Cash or Credit!”
You can literally discover everything I’ve learned over the past 20 years almost, and apply it so you can get the same incredible results my clients have achieved.
And listen, I came up from scratch with this business TWICE. Once from complete financial ruin.
There is no one I know who can say that other than me. The reason I spent so much time telling you this story is I want you to know it doesn’t matter where you are in life – I’ve been there.
You can get out while there’s still time.
Oh and there’s only one catch – you must register now as seats are truly limited.
