If you are anything like me, when I start something new what I want is just a little guidance. From someone who has ‘been there and done that’…
Thanks for visiting the Urban Rehabber Program web site. I am Philip Elmes. You and I both know we are now in the most amazing real estate market in years. Fortunes are being made. The problem is: Where to find honest, hands-on coaching and real estate courses we all need to succeed – right now! – as a Real Estate Investor?
Coming up in the real estate business I never found anyone who would “show me the ropes”. Especially when it comes to today’s real estate investing. Selling? Sure, but what about buying, fixing (rehab.) and selling? That’s where the money is, not in being merely the broker or salesman on the deal.
I had to do it the Hard Way. Deal at a time. And sometimes it got expensive. And, no, there weren’t any real estate courses for what I wanted to do–Investing and rehab. It took awhile but, in time, I “got it”.
It does not have to be that way for you! You will find a great deal of Insider Information on this website and by joining in our monthly meetings in Hyde Park, on the south side of Chicago.
We work at providing real estate training and support that goes far beyond most real estate education programs available today. Our students get results early on and stay in the business, building their real estate portfolios year after year.
It’s no secret. There are amazing investment opportunities today in real estate – Right now, in Chicago and across the country, it’s possible to own 2 or even 3 houses for what two years ago we paid for one. It is the Entrepreneur’s Opportunity of a Lifetime! But you know– We have to be prepared, “know the ropes.” That’s what our program is all about.
Having the Right Tools– Unlike most real estate investing programs, the Tools and Strategies we teach require more smarts than capital. These methods took me many years to master but, just as I’ve helped many others fast-track their way to financial success in real estate, I can help you.
My wife and I are both graduate engineers. That doesn’t mean we knew anything about real estate and rehab. A little over two years ago, we took the Investor/Rehabber Seminar. The seminar prepared us to handle the rehab the correct way.
We saved money on potential mistakes and we were able to keep our ‘holding time’ to a minimum. We learned about everything from budgeting, to construction techniques, dealing with lenders, and more.
The knowledge we gained from Phil and the seminar he teaches enabled us to fast track our business and do more deals per year. In our first deal, immediately following the seminar, we bought a property for $52K, put in $36K, and within 4 months of our purchase, sold for a $22K profit.
We learned real estate rehabbing and wholesaling from Phil and his Urban Rehabber Program. And, we are pleased to report, our net worth has increased significantly due to these activities.
I tell people all the time that the Investor/Rehabber Seminar is the greatest thing since sliced bread. What Phil teaches about dealing with contractors is a real eye opener, the same thing with appraisers, the courts and Code violations. Most importantly, we could always call Phil with our questions. We now try to help others in the same way. My advice to those thinking about getting into the business is to prepare, read, attend the Seminar and stay close to the Round Table meetings. Quit talking about it and just do it!– Dwayne Pierre-Antoine
I just want you to know how grateful I am for all I have learned from the classes I have taken through the Urban Rehabber Program. As a 12 year mortgage loan officer in the business of financing investment property, I can honestly say the Urban Rehabber Program has the BEST practical method for learning, understanding, and succeeding as a Real Estate Investor.
[Phil’s] reputation is reflected in the more than forty successful students and participants who have come to me for mortgage financing of their projects. These participants were successful in their real estate transactions because of your well designed courses and exciting roundtable discussions. They are the fruits of your 40-plus years of labor.Your Investor/Rehabber Seminar teaches how to effectively manage (budget) our projects and contractors, the need and importance of a carefully prepared business plan; how to prepare our properties for sale or rental; and have alerted us to investor pitfalls before they happen.. On my own account, after taking the Seminar I was able to successfully complete a project, from purchase, to rehab, to refinance and rental, in 3 1/2 weeks.
