FAR 204 BuildZoom

Expected Air Date: 11/03/18


Hello everyone! If you are listening to this on our broadcast date of November 3rd, I am right now teaching the FlipStarter Course in Atlanta, GA to 40 future real estate millionaires. We are already planning our next events and are considering opening up to a larger group - perhaps up to 100, but we are trying to be careful that we are still able to give every person in attendance individual attention and personalized strategies.

Today we have some really interesting guests coming up Issi Romem and Jiyan Wei from BuildZoom will be joining us in a few minutes to talk about the BuildZoom platform. If you are on the hunt for a quality, previously vetted contractor, you want to stay tuned and listen to this interview with one of the top providers of contractor referrals online. Plus it’s been a few minutes since I’ve answered your questions on the air and we have some piling up.

  • Jessica, Boulder, CO, “I’m having a hard time getting my contractor to listen to me. I think it’s because I’m young and female. I can’t do anything about that. But what can I do to make him do things the way I want?”
  • Janet, Atlanta, GA, “I have a rental property that has just gone vacant. I’m strapped for cash and it needs a couple thousand in work before I can rent it out again. Without the rent I can’t make the payment and without fixing it I can’t rent it. Do you have any suggestions?”
  • Eduardo, Phoenix, AZ, “I gave a contractor $9,000 to start a job. He came out and did some work but now wants $20,000 to continue. We got into an argument about it and he pulled his crew and refuses to come back until I pay him. He claims he has plenty of other clients and doesn’t need to put up with me. The total project is $35,000. He’s completed about $5,000 in work. What would you do?”
