I have been fortunate enough to talk so many smart, interesting people in this business.  I have done interviews with industry experts from all across the real estate spectrum, as well as experts that support real estate investors in their businesses. There are a wide variety of topics with a one common thread; these shows are all designed to help you grow a successful real estate investing business.

One thing all of theses folks have in common is that they were all newbies at one time.  So if that is where you happen to be at this moment; stuck in the “Newbie Zone”, I want you to know that we have all been there.  We were all newbies at one time.  So hang in there, listen and learn.  Have an idea for a show?

  11. […] Let’s Talk Real Estate Investing is an educational overview of the topic. The host is Sharon Vornholt. […]

  12. Jake D says:

    This is great information (and I LOVE that you have a breakdown of all the episodes included). Even though I’ve been working in the real estate investment industry for about something like a year, there’s always a lot more to learn. Personally, I’ve found that SEO seems to be the best route… not sure if it’s a laziness or just a mental block when it comes to traditional marketing. Although expensive, once I found a good SEO consultant, I can rely on the internet outreach for as long as it works.

    • Hi Jake – no doubt that SEO is important. The think about traditional marketing is that it’s the main way and in some cases the only way to get off market deals. I’m having a 2 day seminar on Marketing in Nashville May 19th and 20th. You should come. Investors need 3-5 lead channels or marketing strategies for their businesses. Websites is just one way to get deals (one marketing strategy). You can check it out here: http://reimarketingmastery.com.
      You really are limiting yourself with just one strategy.

  13. Hi Sharon,

    I’m a newbie in real estate. I think these are very useful with me.

  14. Chris says:

    Hi Sharon,

    I have recently begun marketing for probate cases in my area and I’m coming across cases that appear to have a surviving spouse, who still lives in the subject property, as the executor of the estate. In your experience, is it better to not send marketing to a spouse? From all the blogs, etc. that I’ve read, this doesn’t seem to be addressed frequently. Thanks!

    • Chris – I don’t market to surviving spouses as part of my probate letter campaigns. What you can do is put them in a generic postcard program that says “I’m looking for property in your area if you know anyone that wants to sell” or something like that. Wait 6-9 months to start sending those. It won’t seem like you are contacting them due to the death of their spouse.

  15. When it comes to everyday practices that make you a better real estate investor, there are actually a few things you can do that can sharpen your skills as a real estate investor. The best real estate investing practices are practices which are not just used by real estate investors but mostly used by successful people in every different field of business.

  16. […] Let’s Talk Real Estate Investing is the podcast series created by Louisville Gal’s Real Estate Blog author Sharon Vornholt. Every episode is focused on a different aspect of real estate investing but the underlying theme is always the same—improving and growing your business so you can fulfill your maximum potential as a real estate investor. […]

  17. Build Your Team and Marketing Plan - Flipnerd says:

    […] Sharon’s “Let’s Talk Real Estate Investing” Podcast […]

  18. Thanks for the great blog on real estate investing. I’m sure some of your readers in NC would find our services useful in selling their home fast.

  19. William "HouseMan Willie" Metts says:

    Hey Sharon, I’m highly interested in any probate course material you may have… Really need a good marketing letter, thanks… Also need criteria to use when ordering a direct mail list…

  20. TJ says:

    Sharon, I am new to real estate and am currently looking for a motivated sellers list in Louisville, KY. are there any sites that you recommend. I am finding many paid sites that don’t deliver any potential properties.

  21. Phillipa Getty says:

    Hi Sharon, my wife and I had listed our home on prelist.org and now have officially decided we’re serious about selling our home. We’re now just trying to choose the right Real Estate Agent who would be willing to help us. The real question is what are your recommended questions that we could ask the potential agents to make sure we don’t get an inexperienced one? There have been a lot of incidents of mishandling by inexperienced agents.

  22. Candice says:

    Hi Sharon,
    Which podcast would you recommend to listen to on probates? I’m going to focus on this niche. I really like listening to your post casts I learn so much and I respect your opinion. I’m very new to this REI thing.


    • Candice – there is a bonus episode I did between 30 and 31 that is just about probates. Really you should listen to the ones about marketing and making offers too. I will be doing more of the instructional posts myself going forward. I will be sure to include some on probates. Additionally I have written about probate a lot. You can search by topic on the blog homepage.

    Hi Sharon-Will you be offering a probate course? I’d be very interested. Thanks!

  28. Michael Del Prete says:

    I was wondering if you host real estate investors? If so what information do you need from me? I am Michael Del Prete and would love to be part of your show.

  29. Sharon-My wife and I are new to REI and have really enjoyed your podcast. Thank you for the work you to do help newbies like us learn the ropes of real estate investing. We are having a small issue with the podcast that we wanted to make sure you were aware of. For some reason the link to subscribe in iTunes isn’t working. When we click the subscribe link it gives us an error message that says that the link is not valid. Just thought we’d pass it along. Thanks again for all that you do!

    • I will check that out Jeremy. When you click the link, it takes you to a podcast page. Then you have to choose a podcast and “listen in iTunes”. Once you are actually in iTunes you can leave a review. I have no idea why it is so difficult to leave a review.

  30. real estate investing says:

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every
    day. It will always be useful to read articles from other authors
    and use a little something from their sites.
