My guest on today’s podcast is Jeff Kowalczuk. Jeff is a full time real estate investor from Columbus, Ohio that has done several hundred deals since he opened his company in 2007. The really amazing thing is that he has managed to do all of this and he's not yet 30.
In the past couple of years Jeff has taken some giant leaps when it comes to growing his business, and that’s what I want to talk about today. How you can can implement some of these same tips for scaling a business in your own real estate investing business.
I want everyone to see first hand how taking consistent focused action year after year put him in exactly the right spot when opportunity showed up on his doorstep. When Jeff crossed paths with hedge funds on two separate occasions his life changed forever. These two events helped to skyrocket his business growth and his success.
Here's just a sample of what we cover in this show:
- How Jeff always knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur
- The books he started reading as a teenager that put him on this path in real estate investing
- How he got started (it wasn’t a bed or roses)
- His struggles in the early years in his business
- How he went from having a small business doing a few deals a year, to building a business that wholesaled 100+ houses a couple of years
- Tips for scaling a business
- The one thing he did that changed the course of his business and his life
- How partners can help you grow your business fast
- Buying already rehabbed properties from a hedge fund for pennies on the dollar
- Selling turkey properties to a start-up hedge fund a few years later that changed everything and secured his future
This is a great podcast that really solidifies what I have already said; if you do the work consistently, you will be ready when opportunity comes along.
Luck happens when hard work meets opportunity

Sharon & Jeff,
Thank you so much for this. It is very encouraging in it’s realism. I am at the point of a rock and a hard place—barely a life and working constantly, but not enough money yet to hire someone. I love what I do but feel close to burn out sometimes.
I appreciate you both!
Thanks so much for listening. We could use an iTunes review if you would do that. We have a lot of listeners but they are all listening here.
Jeff is 28 years old and he is in my mastermind group. I am in awe of him.
The best thing you can do is get even a little help. Head over to Odesk and get someone to do little tasks for you. They charge $3-$4 an hour. Get someone for just a few hours a week. I did a search there just this week for a real estate specific person and there are tons of them. I have a VA from there that does some things for me, but she is not a real estate person. You will be so happy that you did.
As always, I appreciate your support. Bill and I are having another free Q&A next week if you are interested.
Thank you Sharon. I did find some real estate va’s there but they were $12-17hr. I might just hire a local Uni person or a senior that needs just a few hours work each week.
I will definitely be at that next Q & A.
Best to you
Melodee – I just looked on Odesk and found some that looked really good for $4 or less. I used the search term “real estate” then looked at their experience. It depends on what you want or need, but I have had good luck both times I used them.
