Interview with Justin Colby of the Science of Flipping Podcast
Recently I was able to catch up with a special guest Justin Colby, Co-Founder and President of The Science of Flipping, Omni Investment Group and Phoenix Wealth Builders on my latest episode of Strategic Real Estate Investing Radio. Omni and Phoenix Wealth Builders are both professional real estate investment companies specializing in purchase, rehab, and flipping of distressed property in the Metro Phoenix Area.
Justin has been in real estate investing since 2007, which is right around the same time that I started hosting live events. It was also about the same time the markets were changing and all the conventional rules of real estate investing were being thrown out of the window. Last year, Justin and his partner flipped 96 homes and as a whole and they have flipped and wholesaled over 300 properties to date.
We discussed the current market situation and what Justin’s top strategies are for finding the best wholesale deals.
- Direct Mail – Justin is currently using his business partner and our friend, Kent Clothier’s system Find Motivated Sellers Now to find lists to send letters to.
- Referral Leads – Justin knows a lot of realtors, other investors and students who will reach out to him when they have leads.
- Facebook Ads/Google PPC/YouTube Videos
