But Josh never goes it alone.

So meet his starting lineup of expert coaches…

Jerry Kayser

Specialty = Brokerage, Short Sales, Commercial, Sales Training.

Jerry is Josh’s business partner and current managing broker at Sharp Concepts Realty.

Since opening its doors in 2007, Sharp Concepts Realty has grown at the unheard of rate of over 500%, year after year. One of the main reasons for such shocking growth has been this seasoned vet’s ability to add 25 real estate agents to their roster.

Jerry’s been an active real estate investor since his first rehab deal in 1970. He has a wealth of experience with pre-foreclosures, short sales, and even commercial properties.

Jerry has both a BS and an MBA in Finance from Northwestern University, but knows that real education begins after graduation…

Jerry also found that after 2 years of investing in pre-foreclosure houses, he could add an additional revenue stream by becoming a Realtor. This has added credibility when dealing with other BPO agents, appraisers, lenders, buyers, sellers, and Realtors.

Jerry is a family man with five grown children and four grandkids. His favorite perk of this business is the freedom to spend time with his family

John Cochran

John Cochran

Specialty = The Creation And Development Of Systems, Wholesaling, Brokerages.

John is a “systems specialist” who has flipped over 150 real estate deals in his 11-year career.

He started out rehabbing properties, but after buying a HUD house for $18.47, he became hooked on the idea of wholesaling homes for huge profits.

After tweaking his HUD Buying System to where it ran on almost complete autopilot, he developed a new program called Wholesaling Mastery, which details all the tips and tricks he uses daily to wholesale over eight properties a month.

John is the founder of one of the fastest growing real estate brokerages in the country, HomeBackers Realty… which is especially impressive when you consider… they ONLY work with buyers.

John’s Buyers on Fire system allowed him to build a very responsive buyers list in his own local market of Dayton, Ohio… with 18,000+ retail, cash, rent to own and Investor buyers.

He will tell you, “When you have all the buyers in your area, you pretty much own the market and write your own paycheck.”

Between his personal investments and his brokerage, John is involved in over 30 transactions a month… which is more than most investors handle in an entire year!

John is currently in the process of developing Agentsoft, breakthrough software he believes will completely change the way real estate is sold within the next few years.

In short… with John in your corner, you’re guaranteed to stay on the cutting-edge.

“I knew of a triplex property that was across the street from my own former triplex property that appeared to stay vacant. I researched the owner and wrote him a letter to which he never responded so I drove to his home, knocked on the door and made friends to the point that he said that he'd entertain an offer. I offered $200,000 (it is worth $250,000 with no issue), he accepted and I put down $4,000 and he finances $196,000 at 6% for 30 years, due in 5 years. Property is in good to excellent condition for a 40 year old structure. First mortgage payment is due 90 days after closing. We are closing May 1st and I am preparing to hit the ground running. Best wishes.”
~Dave LaRose

“Josh, I just want to say thank you for having such a fabulous, professional and knowledgeable coach on your team. Justin Hill has been a tremendous help through my first investment property purchase. Your Program information along with the help Justin, enabled me to begin my journey of becoming a successful Real Estate Investor. I closed March 20, 2014. Thank you for such a great Program and Coach.”
~Mary Brooks

“I live about 80 miles south of you Josh. I've met you in person. I've been in your office. So, I know you are really doing this. No smoke!”
~Lyn Starcher

“Bought the property on Tewksbury for $199,300. Sold for $350,000.Put $14,315 into the property in repairs, taxes, insurance, iPads, TV’s, etc.Paid investors at 5.5% ($12,650) for the $230,000 borrowed Made $78,405 on the HUD plus the $16,000 left in my account that was not used for repairs for a TOTAL PROFIT of $94,409! “You tell me if Josh’s Coaching was worth it!”
~Kyle Garifo

“These guys really have their systems in place. When I left my meeting with Josh and John I knew exactly what to do. They gave me a very specific Step by Step action plan that virtually guarantees my success!"
Keith Allen, student Chicago Ill

“What Josh, John and these guys do best is that nothing is filtered. They are in the trenches. They are doing deals. There’s nothing that can replace that. It’s just a matter of doing what they say and following their system. Their best interest is watching out for my best interest. There is no comparison. There’s these guys and then everything else is just JUNK!!!!”
DK Kim, Attorney & Student Orlando Fla

“I must say I way a bit skeptical about your program, after signing up for so many others that omit critical pieces of information. But your course is the real deal, it covers so much, that I think I'm getting some information indigestion. However, I can live with that, and look forward to scoring some big successes with your coaching. I am also interested in buying through auctions, so any information you have on this would be very helpful.”
~Roy Leighvard

“Josh, our meeting was only 35 minutes long; but you gave more information than most do in 2 hours! Your being pumped up made us pumped up, too! Thanks for your giving spirit!”
~Danna Seale

“The other good news is that the hedge funds are beginning to sell off their house portfolios because they aren't getting the returns they were expecting from buying up house portfolios and then renting them out. There will be lots of opportunities for us real estate investors.”
~Mike Minnihan

“I am excited to report that I have my first deal under contract! The deal is kind of a 40K flips/Wholesale. Here is what happened. I listed the property For Sale by Owner at only $110,000. I patched some holes in the dry wall, had the house cleaned, had the carpet steam cleaned, and repaired the garage door. Altogether, I'm putting in about $600. I am going to make the difference of the amount paid by the guy at the auction ($69,000) to redeem the property and the list price ($110,000). That's about $40,000 in 1 week!How's that for a 40K Flip!? I am always amazed at how attentive you are to your students in the 40K flip program. You really care about their success. It shows. Thank you for all that you do."
~Scott Tatge

“Just wanted to say thanks for allowing students from your previous 40KFlips classes to join in on the next round of live classes. As if the abundance of information you provide in the classes and on the website isn't enough , now this ! To me , you are really going the extra mile to provide more than what I expected to receive when I signed up for the course.I have only been able to catch a couple of the live classes with the July group , so I have been following along with the recorded classes on the site. Your invite to allow us to join in on the next round gives me the opportunity to sit in on more of the live training.Thank You."

If I had these years ago, I bet I could have found a private investor a LOT sooner. You guys are awesome! Appreciate the help more than you can imagine. I was also just about to send you an email asking if you could please go over the private lender presentation with us, so we can see what you say during the presentations.

“As a student of one of Josh's Coaching Programs. I strongly recommend getting involved!! My Coach is Justin Hill, and I would like to publicly brag on him for a minute! Not only has he been a Coach in The Real Estate Investing Business, he has been part time Counselor as well! He has been there for all my "stupid" questions and not once has he made me feel less than because of my lack of experience. Very patient and kind. I hope that none of you think that this easy money, get rich quick kind of stuff! It takes time and work, but I know that the payoffs are going to be worth it!! I'm sure that any of Josh's Coaches are as high quality as Justin. You cannot not go wrong! Think if it as a continuing education. Some of you may have spent thousands of dollars of a college degree, I know i did, where did that get you?”
~ Scott, 40k Flips Student

“I feel it a honor to have you as my coach. Without your help these past few months, I can honestly say that I would NOT be where I am now.”
~ Christina Clark, Home Investment Solutions, Inc, Newport News, VA.

“I’m going full speed ahead with your program, learning from the ground up. I see what’s happening now.”
~ Donald Candys, Ugetpaid Real Estate LLC

“This is great stuff folks, bookmark this page, walk over hot coals, swim the ocean, do whatever it takes to get all Josh has to offer! We’re using these strategies and they flat-out-work!!”
~ Nick Cifone

“SREC’s students produce the most profitable results; have access to the most intelligent information available on the subject of short sales, and the highest quality leaders and peers in the nation.”
~ Stephany McFadzean

“I wanted to let you all know how much I appreciated SREC services. The professionalism. Attitudes, support, understanding, creativity, ingenuity, energy, and most of all… passion. I feel very fortunate to be in the Platinum Coaching. I’m a very big FAN of the best organization in real estate investing.”
~ Joe Heffley

“Before SREC I didn’t have a plan. I was just “trying” to find deals and “trying” to close them. Now each day I have a plan and a business model that helps me determine my activities. I have become more efficient and I am now making money consistently.”
~ Zach Kennedy

“With SREC there are no lies… all there is the truth. Out of all the products and coaching that’s out there, SREC is the best investment in my time and money.”
~ Roberto Olmos

“We closed our first deal!”
~ Preston Eisnaugle

“I must say I thought the event was quite frankly the best event I have attended in the 27 years since I bought my first investment property. Josh is certainly a credit to the industry and we need more men with his integrity and honesty. I felt his teaching style was direct and informative without all the pomp and circumstance.”
~ Thomas Errico

"I have taken other real estate courses from other guys who sent you books and tapes and they confuse me. Josh is the best trainer and the best coach; I feel that there is no one else in the U.S. who can compete with him!”
~ Mary Marambio

"OMG. I think I have finally heard the real deal. No hype, just straight facts. I have looked at all kinds of programs, and have spent some serious dollars, only to be overwhelmed with information, no one to ever answer a question, and too complicated for even a seasoned Realtor of 28 years to figure out. I am excited, I think I have now heard someone that really has a solid strategy and not a tease with information. With tons of research for the new year, this is by far the best option I have seen yet to really make some money. Thanks, and look forward to the rest of the information.”
~ Linda Hughes from Nashville, TN
