Chad Lower has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. He started a Cash for Gold business at the age of 23, which he successfully expanded into 16 retail stores in a short amount of time. He knew that he wasn’t meant to live a life of an employee and has since endeavored to achieve success in business – something he has been doing for over 15 years.

Chad ventured into real estate investing after realizing that he needed an alternate source to invest the profits of his original business. He knew that he needed to develop new financial skills to really grow as a business owner and decided to try out real estate investing. He closed his first deal in 2012 for $4,000.00 and considered this as a proof of concept of what he could achieve in the real estate investing industry.

In today’s episode, Chad tells us about the marketing strategies and tools that he uses to drive success in his real estate investing company, House Buyers KC. He offers very insightful tips that will help you improve the quality of your leads and how to deal with pushbacks at the first call.

“Success can be achieved if you take a full-time approach towards your business. Make it your career, profession and passion.”
