Hi my name is Elmer Pariona. I live in Biloxi Mississippi and I am the owner of a Mexican Restaurant that I own with two partners in Biloxi.
Prior to meeting Lex my income was about $50,000 a year from the restaurant. I attended the Distressed Real Estate Boot Camp and I decided to sign up for Lex’s coaching program. I spent three days with Lex in Florida learning about real estate estate before driving back to Biloxi.
When I returned I did exactly what Lex showed me how to do when I was with him. I made an offer on a duplex which was accepted and using borrowed funds I purchased fixed and rented the duplex out. I then refinanced it and bought another duplex.
Now a little over two years later I own 18 duplexes, 3 single family homes and a four plex and I have 44 tenants that pay me rent every month. I am still a partner in the restaurant and I manage my rental properties myself.
Since meeting Lex I have increased my networth by $1.7 million dollars. I have $232,000 of positive cash flow from my rental properties and my income and networth have substantially changed since attending the boot camp and meeting Lex.
I arrived in South Florida in 2011 with no savings, no car, no job, a family to support, and had to live with family for a while. After reading about investing in Real Estate, I attended one of Lex’s monthly meetings and I was hooked. After getting a job to pay the bills, I saved just enough to attend Lex’s Wholesaling Distressed Real Estate Boot camp. Despite the naysayers, it took me less than an hour to realize that it was money well spent.
The information was more thorough than anything I had seen before. Lex guided us through even the tiniest details and provided hands-on education including trips to Home Depot (to calculate material costs), and Distressed Real Estate Bus Trips to various neighborhoods and properties to evaluate deals. Within a few months I had flipped my first two houses and used some of the profits to invest in Lex’s Inner Circle Mentoring Program where the focus is not just on learning, but on actually doing deals.
I’ve not only benefited from having Lex as my mentor, but also as my partner. He has not only walked me through a ton of deals (and the legal, tangible, and mental obstacles associated with them), but has also split deals with me, found buyers for my deals, acted as a listing agent for one of my buyers, provided transactional funding, and given me invaluable access to the partners, buyers and network that he’s been cultivating for over a decade (including for example, my relationship with my preferred Title company – Independence Title).
In just two years I was able to completely quit my full time job (which I hated) and I’m now a full-time Wholesaler. And while wholesaling is still my love, I’ve also purchased a rental property, completed a lease option, and now I’m working towards my first fix and flip rehab project.
I paid over six-figures for my formal education from a prestigious University that has yielded me some bragging rights and a framed diploma that I assume is in my parent’s house somewhere. Every dime I’ve invested into Lex however, has paid me back at least ten times. I have a lucrative career that I love, I control my time, and most importantly, my five-year old daughter gets to reap the benefits. This has easily been the best investment of my life.
Lex is the real deal. He is not only a teacher but an active investor who has been a dominant force in the market for over a decade. He’s changed my life and I’ve also witnessed him change the lives of local students as well as students that live in different countries and on different continents. If you’re even halfway serious about investing in Real Estate, you simply can’t go wrong with Lex.
