Real Estate Cash Flow for Agency Owners

Investing your money is crucial for growing your wealth and creating real monthly cash flow, and real estate can potentially serve as a powerful vehicle for growing your portfolio. However, it’s crucial to learn from someone who has truly thrived through every challenge. Chris Prefontaine is a master real estate investor and coach who teaches people how to use “terms” real estate investing to create generational wealth for themselves and their families. In this episode of the Progressive Agency podcast, Chris shares how his “terms” niche works, how it creates three separate “paydays” per deal, and how his methods have been designed to be safe and reliable…no matter how chaotic the real estate market becomes.

Learning from Someone Who Has Been There

No matter what sort of investing you’re interested in doing or what new skills you want to learn, Chris says it is crucial to learn from someone who has been through tough times and weathered them. Chris himself got started in real estate investing in 1991, and the real estate market collapse and Great Recession of 2008 hit his business hard.

Rather than give up, Chris took what he learned from these challenges and modified his systems and processes to become much more resilient, no matter what the larger real estate market was doing. In going through the challenges of the Great Recession, Chris was able to learn and grow and become an even stronger business leader and coach. That’s why Chris believes that learning from someone who has survived their own challenges is much more beneficial than learning from someone who has never had to navigate hard times.
