The Four Trusts, with Lou Brown

Episode 107:

Real Estate investors in all fifty states across Canada and fifteen foreign countries including as far away as Australia and New Zealand have long regarded the training, systems and forms created by Louis Brown as the best in the industry.

Quoted as an expert by many publications and authors, Lou draws from a wide and varied background as a real estate investor, having been buying property since 1976. He has invested in single-family homes, apartments, hotels, developed subdivisions, and built and renovated homes and apartments. Each of these experiences has given him a solid understanding of the most cutting edge concepts in real estate today.

He’s widely known as a creative financing genius with his deal structuring concepts. Being a teacher at heart, he enjoys sharing his discoveries with others.

He has served the industry in many volunteer positions such as past President and designated lifetime member of the Georgia Real Estate Investors Association, the world’s largest real estate investor group. He is also founding President of the National Real Estate Investors Association, which serves as the umbrella association of local investor groups.

  • How buying a trust differs from buying real estate directly, and why it is important to consult an attorney about your specific situation

  • Why many people haven’t heard of an “elite trust”, and how it offers key benefits that even a land trust doesn’t offer

  • Why anyone who pays $16,000 or more in taxes per year can benefit from working with Lou Brown to set up an elite trust, and how to get a private consultation with Lou
