The Nick Vertucci Academy’s additional three-day field training was one of the best decisions Gary and I had ever made. This program allowed us to learn and process any new knowledge at our speed, have all our questions personally addressed, and everything was one-on-one hands on.
We left the Nick Vertucci Academy’s bus tour believing we knew all the steps we needed to become successful real estate investors, but before leaving the tour we soon realized we lacked the courage to make the “big jump.” How lucky we were that we made the decision to sign up for the three-day field training, and how lucky we were to have Garrett Shatzel as our field mentor.
Gary and I can’t say enough kind words about him. He had unlimited patience, was very supportive, and made believers out of us that we were going to be successful in our new chosen career.
From the beginning of day one through late in the evening day three, Garrett continued to spend time reviewing all the things we learned during our bus tour, but in much greater depth. We now feel very confident in choosing the right type of properties, determining the rehab budget, and analyzing the right comps to get the correct ARV. Calling up strangers on the phone can be very frightening for many of us, but we did it. With Garrett’s support Gary and I made cold calls to not one, but many different lenders, realtors, contractors, etc. It was hard, but with his encouragement we discovered that we were really good at it!
Everyone hates contracts! Legal contracts always seem to be wordy or written in a foreign language that only an alien could understand, but not for us. With Garrett’s help we got the “lawyer” language down!
During the bus tour, Nick was always emphasizing the importance of building your Power Team. We had the opportunity to meet various members of Garrett’s Power Team. Gary and I observe the respect and trust he has built with each one of them. Each member of his Power Team shared invaluable advice that we will definitely follow. One of our favorite times during the training was having the opportunity to visit some of Garret’s properties that were in the rehab process, as well as, properties going to closing. “Amazing” isn’t a strong enough word to describe the changes in these properties!
Over the three days we had an invaluable experience in the training, and in regards to Garrett, he has the talent in teaching, good conversation, and finds the best places to eat!
From the start to finish in our training, our money was well spent. We left Pennsylvania with so much knowledge, and made a new friend for life.
Garrett, you would be so proud of your students. Since coming home to Colorado Gary and I made the “big jump” in making offers, and are now closing on our first property at the end of this month. Roar Tiger Pride! Once we finished the mentorship with Garrett, Susan Bridgante was assigned as an additional support system. She has been indispensable. At any time we can call the academy if needed.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about the NV Academy. In my heart I believe they want each one of their students to succeed.
So, take that step, because a year from now you will wish you had started today! We did!
Our thanks to the Nick, Garrett, and the Nick Vertucci Academy! You have changed our lives forever!
With Warmest Regards,
Cindy and Gary Wyman
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
