Welcome to episode of the Crushing it in Real Estate Podcast! This week we have Kevin Cruz the founder and realtor at Kinetic Real Estate located in the San Francisco Bay Area! A little more about Kevin: Real estate agent Kevin Cruz’s intense drive is apparent in every aspect of his career. Licensed since 2016, Kevin was in the business for just one week when he helped a family find their dream home. Within only two years, he became a prestigious award winner—which included the coveted “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2017—and sold more than 100 homes. Born in the Philippines, Kevin came to the United States at the age of 14 in search of the American Dream and found it in the Bay Area. Blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit, he later quit college to pursue various business ventures. Along the way, he built a solid skill set that would help him deftly handle just about anything he encountered. Always searching for bigger and better challenges, Kevin eventually set his sights on real estate. Since then, he has been cultivating a team of equally talented professionals to help him be the best agent—and have the best agency—in the Bay Area. Not surprisingly, Kevin’s real estate specialties are diverse. They include single-family homes, condos, and multi-unit properties, as well as relocation, property management, and 1031 exchanges. And with clients ranging from first-time buyers to Silicon Valley techies, Kevin initiates every interaction with exceptional customer service and dedication to complete client satisfaction. He further complements his career as the owner of a home-staging and moving company. Deeply proud to be a Filipino entrepreneur, Kevin hopes it will inspire others within his community. As much as Kevin loves building businesses from scratch, he makes sure to carve out time for other things in life. His family and friends, networking, and exploring new travel destinations are just some of the things he enjoys devoting time to. IG: thebayarearealtor Email: kevin@kineticrealestate.com

111 Flips in the First Year of Investing in Real Estate with Jason Roberts and Rachel Schneider
Welcome to episode of the Crushing it in Real Estate Podcast! This week we have Jason Roberts and Rachel Schneider of REI Real Estate Investing Blueprint. In 2001, while still in their early 20’s, Jason and Rachel decided that instead of working for someone else, they would rather be in charge of their own destiny and opened a mortgage company. They eventually built that business into a multi-million dollar company, where they closed over 3000 real estate transactions. Then the market crashed and they had to find a new way to use their real estate talents. That is when they went into real estate investing and started down a new path. Implementing the real estate strategies they have honed over time they have since closed well north of 300+ real estate transactions (pre-foreclosures/short sales, wholesales, probates, etc.) Having seen pretty much everything, they decided to funnel that expertise into their true passion; sharing their knowledge with other investors. They now run a top coaching program with the nation’s leading investors, own a profitable hard money lending company, with over 2 million dollars in loans out to their coaching students at any given time, share their wealth of knowledge as co-owners of their local REIA all the while continuing to flip houses.
