He is most well known for the development of his Mentoring Program that has been called, “The Best Mentoring Program in the Country” which he continues today.

In addition to his Mentoring Program, he started a full-service transactional funding Program so that new investors had the ability to do deals with no money of their own. He challenged the funding industry by making borrowing money very simple with his “One Point Funding Program” which has revolutionized the transactional funding industry and made millions of dollars available to investors who otherwise could not have afforded it. Currently his transactional funding is only available in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas, but keep checking for updates.
