The Power of Paper, with Bob Leonetti

Episode 90:

Bob Leonetti has shown more regular people, just like you, how to make money with real estate paper and low-money-down note and paper strategies, than almost anyone else in the United States. With more than 25 years of teaching/coaching experience, thousands of satisfied students, eight books, and countless educational seminars, video, audio, and other real estate finance products to his credit, no one knows the ins and outs of the note and paper business like Bob does.

Formerly a licensed Mortgage Banker in 12 states, he took Success Financial Services Group, a company he founded in the spare bedroom of his house in 1992, to Wall Street and the publicly traded markets in 2000. Since 1992, he and his company have funded over $250 Million in privately held and defaulted mortgages, and the principals of his current company, National Note Funding, boast over 50 years in the note business between the two of them.

Investor, speaker, author, and teacher, Bob is involved in numerous private-money raising deals and, through notes, regularly assists private lenders in obtaining returns far in excess of what they could earn in traditional bank-type investments. He currently spends his time investing, coaching, and working on his new book, Live Life with Passion – TODAY.
