  • Customer Name: Thom G.
  • Customer ID: 3KSBW
  • Location: Poway, CA

Thom Gilbert growing up in Santa Cruz, California was a dominant competitive athlete who gained most of his confidence through his physical abilities. On December 24, 2001 at 23 years old he was in a catastrophic snowboarding accident, his L1 vertebrae was pulverized and pushed into his spinal cord leaving him instantly paralyzed from the waist down, a paraplegic. In the hospital he had his L1 vertebrae and rib removed, ground up and placed inside a titanium cage creating a spinal fusion between his T12 and L2 vertebrae. After surgery the Doctor said he would never walk again or be able to have kids and to start adjusting to living life in a wheelchair. Today, Thom can walk with a cane, lives in San Diego California with his wife, Lisa and their two sons, Jackson and Dylan who are 12 and 7 years old. He has defied all odds mentally and physically because he did not listen to someone else’s opinion about himself. What is in our hearts and minds are stronger than anything else that someone can tell us about ourselves. Thom and Lisa are self-employed and started their own real estate investing company TLC Investment Properties Inc. He has handcycled in marathons and triathlons through the Challenged Athletes Foundation. He enjoys coaching his sons’ sport teams and puts family first because he learned that at you lowest point all you have is the people around you and the memories you make with them, all the material stuff does not matter and can be replaced. Through his accident he has learned to stay positive, create his own happiness, focus on being grateful for what you do have, and to bring love into everyday like there’s no tomorrow.

On July 3, 2018 my business partner and I bought a new primary residence for $160,000. We then used the lease with the option to purchase strategy on our previous house for $1600/month. This created a positive cash flow of $750/month because the net cost of our previous house was only $850/month. Not only do we get the amazing level of cash flow, but we may also make a profit of $23,000 if they exercise their option to purchase. Without the training from Response we would have never known about this strategy. Thank you for all the help you have provided us to complete this deal.

  • Customer Name: Drew U.
  • Customer ID: 346SV
  • Location: Murrieta, CA

I am a retired Program Manager from Aerospace IT and started investing in 2013 because I wanted to reinvest retirement funds, increase rate of return, have cash flow, time, and financial freedom. When finding great deals I try to investigate all aspects of the property so I can determine repairs, etc. that are needed. Then I construct a bid that is reflective of the repairs and the disposition strategy for that particular property. Technology is a big help when determining the AVM. The tools and processes embedded in the SW are invaluable. Photos and other sources of info are important in constructing the bid.

  • Customer Name: Sheldon D.
  • Customer ID: P9Z4K
  • Location: New Market, MD

Taking the training in 2010 and doing their first deal in 2011, Sheldon Davis and his wife are investing in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. When starting out, their greatest fear was in not knowing what they didn’t know. Their goals were to fund their retirement and to travel. They now take their extended family on trips.Taking an education-centric approach to their investing, the couple “burned up the phone lines” to support in their first deals. Their cautious approach to deal selection relied heavily on due diligence, and the numbers had to work or they moved on to another opportunity.Their investing includes retail flips, mortgage notes, tax liens, private lending, and rental properties. Their rental cash flow provides income security to allow other strategies. Knowing that the profit is made on the front-end purchase of a property, their due diligence is extensive, including worst case analysis and planned exit strategies.They have made mistakes, never the same one twice though. Using technology for research in their due diligence process, they can evaluate many deals, compare best and worst case scenarios, and plan exit strategies. All of this preparation leads to profitable results, even when the ideal result doesn’t come to be.

  • Customer ID: RJHL5
  • Location: Dayton, OR

My real estate focus is "buy, fix and flip". One of my strengths is project management and I choose to combine that strength with my passion for design in support of building on my retirement income. My husband and I have put our life's work into rehabbing a 1860's farm house and the 5 acres that surround it, it is my/our hobby. Our home is our sanctuary and we love spending time sharing what we have built and enjoying the peace of it all. Family, friends, and the simple joys of life are my primary interests, and I love making something out of nothing (my mother's gift) and of course paying it forward when possible.
