EP 6: How To Talk To A Motivated House Seller + Getting Your First Deal Closed w/ Brian Evans

In this CarrotCast episode, Trevor is joined by Brian Evans, investor, and owner of The First Deal. The First Deal focuses on helping new investors close their first deal or their first 100 deals.

Brian's real estate journey started from a spot where not many other real estate investors find themselves, working on Wall Street in the Trump building.

One day he came home to find a book from his Father waiting for him. There was a post-it note on it that read "Son, read this, take notes, let's talk. Dad". That book changed his life, his way of thinking, and drove him into the excitement of real estate.

From there, he practically forced two real estate investing brothers to hire him as an apprentice. WITHOUT PAY. He learned the industry and closed his first deal with them in 2004 for $42,000. He hasn't looked back since.


In this CarrotCast episode, Trevor is joined by Alex Pardo, wholesaler, and entrepreneur in Miami, Florida. He originally wanted to be a corporate CEO and was accepted into GE’s Financial Management Program, but found that 70-80 hour work weeks wasn’t going to be his future.

He chose to backpack around Europe for a period of time until he had that “ah-ha” moment…to venture into real estate wholesaling.

He found that by getting away from the corporate “structure” he was able to drive a personal mindset shift, create the lifestyle he wants and continue to make the lives of others around him better.

Since that mindset shift in 2005, his real estate business has gone through many phases. He now has a team of employees that allows him the freedom to work on other real estate and entrepreneur projects that fuel his passions.

Daniel started wholesaling houses and became one of the most successful flippers by closing more than 100 deals in his first 18 months of business.

He’s built a very successful wholesaling company in Baltimore Maryland. In 2015 they closed 117 deals and through the first quarter of 2016, they’ve closed 40 deals.

To generate deals, he uses a marketing mix of around 50% from direct mail, 40% from the web and 10% from text message marketing. That is one of the main conversations in this CarrotCast podcast. Daniel discusses how he utilizes text message marketing and what potential pitfalls to avoid.

Also, for business owners, there can be a “trust” mental block when allowing employees have the freedom to do their jobs. Daniel dives into how he struggled with trust and how he has been able to change his mindset when he hires and delegates employees.

But what do the experts, the people who do PPC marketing every single day… for active investors around the country… do to get the highest ROI out of their campaigns?

What tips and tricks have they learned as they’ve driven hundreds of thousands (or millions) of clicks and hundreds of thousands of leads to squeeze more return on investment out of their PPC?

Well, that’s what our guest today, Dan Barrett, and I chat about.

Not only is Dan a superhero fan, as his office shows, but he’s a huge fan of data (like I am). Data is pretty nerdy, but it’s what pays the bills here at Carrot for our high achieving investor clients because when you have the data you have the advantage over those who don’t.

So enjoy this conversation I have with Dan, CEO of AdwordsNerds, and get a glimpse into his world as an entrepreneur, what he’s passionate about, his story, but also his tips to ramp up the effectiveness of your Google PPC marketing for motivated house sellers.

Enjoy :-)
