DealMaker’s Guide goes beyond the headlines.
One of Ray’s credos is, “You neither make nor lose serious money by the outcome of a story on Page One. You make or lose serious money from the outcome of a story that’s now on Page 16 but is headed for Page One.” His ongoing research takes him far beyond media headlines and trade journal puff pieces to the subtle clues buried in the back pages and footnotes of financial reports of the top players in the industry. He draws on a wide variety of sources, including world-renowned economists and analysts, in an unrelenting search for business trends. He analyzes news, data, and commentary from around the country, applying it to what matters to direct investors.
Opportunity, without the capacity to capture it, is an illusion.
Other real estate teachers may be wed to a particular property type, deal strategy, or financing technique, but this narrow focus will leave the investor unprepared for the majority of opportunities at any given moment. Ray considers the entire spectrum of property types, finance and deal structures as tools to be utilized in the process of building lasting wealth. He understands that in our fast-changing world, specialized knowledge is vital to seizing opportunities wherever they may be found. His dedication to the truth has earned him a strong track record predicting market trends, taking advantage of shifting opportunities, and guiding investors in tumultuous times.
