Your first real estate investment, it really is that easy.


Nicole asked Rylan Pyciak for his advice for the first time investor. He says, 
"Learn, get educated, attend the seminars, find a trusted advisor, then jump and make the move!"

He's putting this in practice while fulfilling the requirements by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae before adding his next property. His goal is to own five or six properties. 

A New Investor Story | It Really Is That Easy
Anyone can become a real estate investment owner. There I said it. This is an opportunity that is open to anyone. And the best part is that it can provide so much for not only your current monthly income but it can help you build wealth exponentially over time. I had the chance to sit down with Rylan Pyciak, who has done a phenomenal job over the last 13 months EASILY kicking off his investment portfolio and securing his financial future, even during times such as these. As a business owner, he knew he needed to add to his portfolio to create financial stability. He knew that just owning his company wasn't enough. I'm grateful that he took the time to share what the most important steps were to him in the process. In turn, I hope this can help you know how to start the process of becoming not only a homeowner but own multiple investment properties. Because when you build wealth through real estate you open up a multitude of possibilities.

I think a lot of us do this, we pretend that we don't have families. We pretend that we don't have loss. We pretend that everything is okay. I stopped pretending and showing up and being real about it.

Real Estate is Essential, Realtors are Not



Sometimes as real estate industry professionals we get caught up in the success, in the transaction, counting units and production. Those are real and tangible and feel good. But when we celebrate the client's success, remembering who the real estate industry is really about, then we stop making it about us and are able to make a dramatic difference in people's lives for today and all of their tomorrows... it's multigenerational.

Nicole asked Bret, "What would you say is the one thing that you've learned during this time, right during COVID19? We've all had to rethink everything. What was the one thing that you've learned that really stands out?"
