JC 105: Learning From Our Experiences with Dave Holman

January 21st, 2021 | no comments

Eventually, You’ll Get Your Home Run.

When it comes to the world of real estate investing, there doesn’t have to be a distinction between doing well and doing good. Enter Dave Holman, a man on a mission to use real estate to solve problems and improve communities. Having nearly a decade of experience as a real estate investor, Dave is passionate about teaching others how to achieve doing well by doing good.

Dave’s story did not start in real estate. His first major investment took place right out of college when he co-founded a multi-lingual retail chain in Bolivia, The Spitting Llama Bookstore and Outfitter, with the hope of improving the country’s social environment and ecology. It wasn’t until five years later that he entered the world of real estate investing and brokering with a similar mission: to help benefit residents, investors, and the planet.

Dave now co-owners 94 rental units in Southern Maine, enjoying his time working with investors, owners, residents, and contractors to help with energy efficiency, syndications, and property management. In addition to investing and brokering, Dave expresses his passions through writing and is the author of three books: Youth Renewing the Countryside, Coffee Smuggler, and Cyber Fire.

Dave Holman joins John Carney today in The Real Estate Locker Room to talk about the deals that work and the ones that don’t, and how we learn from the setbacks.

Key Points:

  1. Don’t try to hit a home run on your first time out.
  2. The economics of owning is better than the economics of renting.
  3. Sometimes the deals you don’t do turn out to be the best deals.
  4. Coordinate your team to make it work.
  5. Use your brain instead of your heart.

Favorite Sport:

  • Distance Running

Favorite Books:

Pro tip:

  • Investigate energy efficiency in your buildings. It will be one of your biggest expenses.
  • Search for focus.

To celebrate Episode 100 I’m giving away 100 copies of my book 10,000 Miles to The American Dream. Learn how to receive your copy of the book in the show notes below!

John Williams was my 1stguest on the Real Estate Locker Room Podcast and I’m stoked to welcome him back to celebrate the 100thEpisode!

John doesn’t believe that you have to be the most talented person to be successful as a real estate investor. You have to leverage the talent that you do have and work hard.

Investing in real estate is cumulative and John’s advice is to learn from doing. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and learn the business of fixing property by doing it.

John started his career with one single family home in 2001 and has scaled to managing over 1200 tenants and multiple mobile home parks.

Johnny Williams joins John Carney today in The Real Estate Locker Room to catch up on his successes during the past three years.

Key Points:

  1. Being able to control real estate will benefit you.
  2. Show up, be consistent and have the desire to be successful.
  3. Continue to build your portfolio so that you can expand.
  4. Buy little things, stack them together, sell them off for a big profit, then buy bigger stuff.
  5. Real estate is not a get rich quick business. Show up and put in the work every day. The harder you work, the more opportunities you get.

Pro tip:

  • Go deeper into how you are trying to find your properties.
