“The reason I got into real estate or any other business, was so I could completely operation the whole thing in my bathrobe from the kitchen table” Daniel DiGiacomo – CEO of one of the most active real estate investment firms in Baltimore and an InvestorCarrot customer for the past 2 years.
From Zero To 100+ Deals In 2016. How Is He Doing It?
Daniel started wholesaling houses and became one of the most successful flippers by closing more than 100 deals in his first 18 months of business.
He’s built a very successful wholesaling company in Baltimore Maryland. In 2015 they closed 117 deals and through the first quarter of 2016, they’ve closed 40 deals.
To generate deals, he uses a marketing mix of around 50% from direct mail, 40% from the web and 10% from text message marketing. That is one of the main conversations in this CarrotCast podcast. Daniel discusses how he utilizes text message marketing and what potential pitfalls to avoid.
Also, for business owners, there can be a “trust” mental block when allowing employees have the freedom to do their jobs. Daniel dives into how he struggled with trust and how he has been able to change his mindset when he hires and delegates employees.
