  • The less you know about real estate investing the better! Then you won't have to unlearn anything!

Hey if you're here that means that you've probably thought about getting into real estate investing.

I talk new to real estate investors all the time.

One of their biggest frustrations is that they don't know how to get started. There are so many "goo-roos" with so many different "programs" screaming at them that they get information overload. Which prevents them from getting started.

Does that describe your situation?

If it does, then you're in the right place!

I'm Dennis Fassett. I'm a real estate investor. A Dad. And I do some teaching on the side.

I've been teaching new real estate investors how to get started now for almost two years.

After talking to and working with literally dozens of new folks, I've developed a streamlined and straightforward educational program specifically targeted on helping new real estate investors get their first check.

In contrast to the often ridiculously complex (and EXPENSIVE) programs the goo-roos pitch, this program is simple.

I will teach you ONE path to getting your first check. That means I'm going to teach you

  • ONE source of leads.
  • ONE way to contact them.
  • ONE real estate investing strategy

And oh, by the way, this strategy doesn't require you to have any money.

Doesn't that sound a lot easier to implement than some complex strategy that requires an MBA and a ton of money?

And I'll tell you how simple this is. It's so simple that my son in High School does most of the work for me during the summers when he's off school.

The truth is, it's simple because it goes back to what I call "Old School REI". These are the exact same techniques that I used when I got started way back in 2004.

And guess what? I never STOPPED using them. And they work even better today than they did back then.

So - if you're looking to get into real estate investing, and you're tired of the goo-roo hype, then this is the course for you.

This course is a comprehensive. Everything you need to get your first check is included. In addition to the video training sessions there are checklists, action items, tools, templates, and other resources for you to use.

It also has specific action steps that you can take to get started TODAY.

And it starts from scratch, so you don't have to have an ounce of experience with real estate.

And enrollment is cheap for what you get.

So enroll NOW and get started with real estate investing TODAY.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who's looking for a step by step guide to getting their first check from real estate investing

Real Estate Investor, Dad, Published Author & Educator

Dennis is the founder of Cash Flow Mercenary LLC, a real estate education and training company focused on helping new real estate investors buy their first cash flow properties, and teaching them how to generate their first cash flow check in weeks instead of months.

He’s also the founder and owner of the Great Lakes Investment Fund, a private equity fund he formed to take advantage of the chaos and uncertainty in the economy through buying apartment buildings in the Great Lakes region of the United States.

Dennis is a published author of a book on single family rental house investing, and he has two other books in process – one on buying apartment buildings and another on his unique and successful approach of acquiring Private Investors to fund real estate deals. He also teaches seminars on the location, acquisition, and management of cash flow real estate, and he coaches and consults on an individual basis as well.

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. He got started in real estate investing in 2004 as a way to create a safety net for his family when the automotive industry in Michigan started to crash and burn.

He is also active in the community. He recently completed a three year term as Vice Chairman of the Financial Advisory Board for the Village of Beverly Hills, Michigan, and he was the chairman of the of the Financial Advisory Board at St Regis Catholic Church in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan for eight years.

On a personal note, he has been married for 21 years to his wife Marily, who he met at grad school at USC. Together they have four children - Victoria, Catherine, Dennis David, and Anika Grace. In his spare time he plays ice and roller hockey during the winter and golf during the summer.
