Course Description

Estate executors are some of the most motivated sellers that you'll run in to.

They're usually REQUIRED to sell a house as part of the estate. And they ALWAYS want the cash yesterday.

That's where YOU come in!

I'm Dennis Fassett. I've been chasing probate deals since the day I started real estate investing way back in 2004. It has been a TREMENDOUS source of deals for me - no matter what the real estate market was doing.

How great has this source been for me?

  1. 50%%%% of the rental houses in my portfolio came from probate leads

He earned an MBA with a concentration in finance from the University of Southern California in 1992 and has 25 years of broad-based experience in Investment Banking, Corporate Finance, Business Operations, and Information Technology.
