Behind every front door of a home is a story. When the property is disheveled, has high grass, appears neglected, possibly has an abandoned looking vehicle, there is a story of a person’s life.  

Investors are often concerned about three things. How to find property, how to fund property, how to fix property. This program focuses on “finding property.” For that is where it all starts.

Of the 50 ways to find properties we will focus on just two methods. Both are easy to start at almost no cost. They represent a place to begin.

Let’s start with the program Devastated Doors. What caused this to happen? Is there a prolonged crisis? One thing it did not occur overnight. Something possibly went wrong in life years ago. Our objective is possibly to be a bridge to an improved life. What we have found in some people’s story is often of being stuck and not able to move forward.

Behind the front door at 718 Mark Welsey, my front door in 2011. The diagnosis was stage 4 cancer. After cancer came deep depression. I compare that season of my life similar to the ship in 1914 called the Endurance. On the expedition, the ship with 28 men aboard got stuck in the frozen Antarctic Ice, then in the coming months, the ship was crushed, and soon thereafter was sunk to the bottom of the ocean.

Cancer takes lives, and when depression is bad enough, you often want to give up and give in. On this journey, we almost lost our house. It was unthinkable and unbearable physically and mentally. Almost everything we had built up, was lost. We had so many people who came to help us.

Our hope in the Devastated Doors program, when possible to acquire the property, to help arrange for pay off of debts, to arrange for a destination property, and walk them through this process. Many of these people we meet are similar to the ship Endurance, these are people that are stuck and often do not know the process to improve their lives.

There is no other lead program that we have discovered that has as many “motivated owners” looking to solve a financial problem. 


Grass is way overgrown


Children's toys scattered in the front or back yard


A vehicle that looks abandoned is sitting in the yard or driveway


The window blinds are bent


There is trash in the yard


In just about one weekend you can drive by, write down the addresses, and have identified 100 doors. We will provide you with a heartfelt letter asking if they would consider selling their property. In our history, when we acquire some of these properties, we have helped that owner….

  • Coordinate the payment of their credit cards to wipe out that debt
  • Identify and secure their next dwelling
  • Helped them move their furniture
  • Help set up their utilities

When you identify a property, you have discovered someone’s story. Sometimes there has been devastation in their lives. Not everyone needs our help with getting on in life, however many people are just stuck.

How We Helped Chris:
Chris owned a property in Affton, Missouri. He responded to our campaign about selling his house to resolve his financial issues. We put the address in our GPS and twice drove past it. The tree limbs were so overgrown and the grass so high you could not see the property. Chris was a hoarder. Some of the rooms had a small path to walk through. The bedrooms had huge stacks of junk and were no longer accessible. He slept on a small cot. When we opened the refrigerator the stench from an old bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken was so bad we had to throw away the refrigerator.

We helped him select a few furniture pieces. This was very hard for him to do. He could not part with anything. We hired a truck and helped him set up his furniture in his apartment. He never ate at home. He took every meal at a local restaurant. We purchased a large amount of gift certificates for his favorite place. He was delighted.

We did purchase his property. It took 5 dumpsters to empty out the house. The neighbors could not believe the outcome. A lovely young lady purchased the property and the home has a new story to tell.

You cannot always tell what is going on in a person’s life even if you see them each day. Chris was a real estate agent in our company. He looked fine. Always dressed nicely. We helped change his life from devastation to a place of delight.

The second program is called WORKING WITH FOR SALE BY OWNERS.

If you are a fit for our FSBO program, you will exclusively receive leads from us. We do not give the same FSBO lead to two agents. This will greatly increase the probability of your success. Thus we are very selective in who we prescreen leads for.


We only work with SOLO agents. Thus we do not work with agents on another agents team. 


We want agents to know that this is not an invitation to join Fox. We are presently in 8 states as members of EXP, however we are comfortable with SOLO agents assisting us in acquiring property and we assisting them in obtaining and building a listing inventory.

(The listing inventory we expect to build with agents in this program is to carry no less than 5 listings at one time)


After you have read through this we want to have one more screening interview with you. This Investor Program and Building a Listing Portfolio may not be a match for you.

This is not about “trying the program” but rather “making investing and listings” part of your career.


Do you like what you have heard so far and do you have a few questions?

Here is what I often get asked?

1. Do I have to join your Fox team?
No. We actually prefer that agents remain SOLO (on their own at eXp).
2. If I liked things, could I maybe later join your team?
Possibly. If your goals and mindset align with ours we are receptive to that conversation. 
3. Will I learn how to invest in real estate?
Yes. We created a concept called The Property Pump which teaches people how to “find, fund, and fix” property. We authored the book (not in publication yet) called “How to Invest in Real Estate – Without Getting Eaten Alive.”
4. Can I do training at my own speed?
Yes. It is online. 
5. How soon would I receive field FSBO appointments?
Possibly within the first few days. We want you in the field finding us a property to buy and or building your listing inventory. 
6. Are there any other benefits?
Yes. I have coached agents that have closed $50m to $100,000,000 in one year. Part of your kick start training I am interested in your mindset. I am wondering what your vision is and what limitations you may have placed on yourself. I provide a no cost coaching session. We do this in part to discover who is a dreamer and who is a doer. 
7. What is the monthly fee?
Zero. We are just looking for people that are hungry, likeable, coachable and their “yes means yes.” 
8. Can I do the Devastated Doors campaign and not the FSBO program?

Still interested? Email me a note about your level of interest in this program, investing at some point for yourself, and your thoughts on building a listing inventory. If you have questions, please share them in the email.
