How Part-Time Investor, Tim Ryan, Closed A 42-Unit Deal Using Other People’s Money

Hey, I was on the phone with PMBPer, Tim Ryan, and he was telling me about a 42-unit deal worth $3mm bucks he closed the other day.

It’s amazing how far Tim has come since joining forces with us back in May ’09.

A few short months after implementing the PMBP system and processes, he sent me this message…


Several months ago I was spinning my wheels trying to close a single family with a bank… earlier this month, I closed on a 16 unit deal, a 2 duplex deal, and another duplex deal REO – with private money. My net monthly cash flow is $2000!

Thanks guys because I know this is just the beginning.


Yep, it was just the beginning Tim 🙂

From spinning his wheels trying to close a single family deal through a bank… to closing multi-million dollar deals.

And get this… Tim hasn’t used one dime of his own money to acquire any of his properties. To finance the 42-unit, he put a simple ad online and got $560k in private money!

I asked Tim if he would be willing to hop on the line for this month’s Private Money Monthly Mastermind Call… and he said “YES!”


And not only did Tim  share his ad with you that you can swipe and deploy into your business, you’re going to learn:

  • How to get Realtors feeding you “pocket listings” (great deals that other people aren’t finding)
  • Tim’s secret ingredient (it starts with a “P”) to getting private money
  • How he used a pre-payment penalty to his advantage when negotiating the 42-unit deal
  • The unconventional method Tim used to find the PERFECT resident property manager
  • and much more!

He’s even going to share how he found and funded his 2 most recent flips that will conservatively net him $65k.

Take out a pen and pad… and get ready to take some notes.

Private Money Mastermind Call – Avoid These Costly Mistakes

I’ve learned some tough lessons from mistakes I’ve made investing in real estate. Mistakes that cost me big time financially, mentally, and emotionally.

It’s important to keep in mind that everyone, EVERYONE makes mistakes… doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to real estate investing or if you’re a seasoned veteran.

BUT, it’s how you respond, how you react, what you learn… that makes the difference.

In real estate investing, when things go south, it can mean broken agreements, payments falling behind, liens, judgments, foreclosure, bankruptcy.

You’re undoubtedly heard many stories of hardship over the last few years… from huge multi-million and billion dollar real estate investment companies, developers, banks, mortgage companies…

… but regardless of the adversity faced, there are KEY lessons to be learned and leveraged into your next deal, your business, your personal life.

In this month’s edition of the PMM Mastermind Call, I go in-depth explaining the BIG mistakes I’ve made, how I’ve responded, how I’ve weathered the storm…

You’re about to learn:

  • How I created a cash flow nightmare
  • How $847K in cash disappeared in only 3 months
  • The hardest and smartest thing I’ve ever done in business
  • How I successfully renegotiated millions of dollars in private money loans
  • 7 key lessons learned from the REI trenches
  • and more

You know, most people are scared to admit their mistakes. And I used to be the same way. But, I realized the huge benefits that I can provide other investors by opening up and sharing the tough times I’ve been through.

My hope is that you can experience these through me, learn from them, and avoid them in your own business and life.

This is a very personal tutorial… I hope you enjoy.

(it may take it a min for the video to load… please be patient 🙂

Take these lessons and apply them in your business, your life.

… and if you’re going through difficult times yourself, let me know. I’m here to help in any way I can.

I mean it.

Private Money Mastermind Call – How to Build Massive Credibility

Let’s say you meet with a private money prospect and you find out they’re earning a 3% return  in one of their investments. You offer them a 6% return backed by real estate, and they say “no”.


Because they don’t believe you’re gonna do what you say you’re gonna do.

… so it’s a trust issue. A lack of credibility.

You may find this hard to believe, but even if you’re brand new to real estate investing and have zero experience, you can get private money for your deals… you can secure funding BEFORE you ever make your first offer.


That’s exactly what this month’s Mastermind Call is all about…

How to look, feel, and be credible… regardless of your level of experience, regardless of your current financial picture, regardless of your credit – whether good or bad.

In this training, you’re about to learn:

  • What is Credibility? How it Relates to Getting Private Money?
  • N.A.C.K. – The Characteristics of an Investor with MASSIVE Credibility
  • The Iron Law of Credibility
  • The Ultimate Credibility “Clincher”
  • 13 Credibility Triggers that Lead to Unstoppable Confidence
  • 4 Strategies to Build Credibility from Scratch
  • And More!

Check out the training below (fyi – it’s broken up into two videos)…

And here’s the second video…

Put your questions, comments, and whatever else is on your mind in the comment area. Let us know how we can help.

Now, go get some private money!
