Welcome To The Real Estate Underground Show #52!


Erik Oliver holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Accounting from Westminster College. Before joining Cost Segregation Authority, Erik was an Operations Manager for a multi-million dollar landscaping and design firm in Long Island, NY.

Why did passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017/2018, bonus appreciation make cost segregation more favorable to all investors regardless of size or value - even single-family rental properties? Why do building owners need to hire someone knowledgeable about construction and tax law for better results? Why does the cost segregation study for their 2022 taxes begins with an initial benefit analysis and then require a site visit (either in person or virtually)? At what point does it make sense to engage you on new construction projects? Is it while the walls are still open, or do you need to look at a finished product?

The Advantages of Terms Business, with Ron LeGrand

The Advantages of Terms Business, with Ron LeGrand

Welcome To The Real Estate Underground Show #40!


Ron LeGrand first got involved with real estate; he was a dead-broke auto mechanic trying to make enough money to make ends meet. There was no such thing as disposable income around his house, and it was all disposed of before he got it. Thirty-five years old, bankrupt, and didn't know what he wanted when growing up, he knew it wasn't fixing cars in the hot Florida sun.


The year was 1982. Ron saw an ad that said, "Come learn how to buy real estate with no money or credit." That appealed to him because he had no money or credit and liked the rich idea. So, he attended the free seminar.


After more years, Ron bought and sold nearly 2,000 houses and still does.


Over the years, Ron created a mountain of home study products, written millions of words in print, and shared the platform with past presidents, movie stars, actors, politicians, sports heroes, business leaders, super wealthy from all professions, and some of the best speakers in the world. He has spoken to audiences as small as 20 and as large as 20,000 in hotel meeting rooms and coliseums across North America.


Ron's legacy has spread like a swarm of locusts, and his positive impact will affect thousands (maybe millions now). New generations will profit directly or indirectly because they attended one of his seminars, then used the information and passed it on. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.


Ron spends much of his time in front of good people who are serious about getting rich and will do what it takes to become one of the 3% who can say and prove they have achieved true wealth.

Exploring the Alternative Investments in Real Estate, with Heather Dreves

Exploring the Alternative Investments in Real Estate, with Heather Dreves

Welcome To The Real Estate Underground Show #38!


Heather Dreves is the Director of Funding Secured Investment Corp and a fund manager that oversees the management of the Secured Investment High Yield Fund II LLC and the Circle of Wealth Fund III LLC. Secured Investment Corp is one of the US's fastest-growing real estate lenders and fund managers.


Secured Investment Corp has created two private equity funds to fill the void left by uncooperative traditional funding sources. Investors have the potential to earn double-digit returns based on past performance by connecting real estate investors who needed non-traditional funding with passive ib=nvestors who were ready to make higher returns on their investments. Secured Investment Corp created an opportunity to benefit both sides.


Passive investors get higher returns, and real estate investors get quick, competitive loans to purchase and rehab those properties that traditional lenders will not touch.


Heather enjoys lending money to self-employed entrepreneurs and their families. Watching people succeed in their business motivates her, and that's why she and her lending team focus on transparency, mentorship, and making sure their people make their money back. She learned early on that focusing on the bottom line was not enough to sustain a business, and after foreclosures and property taxes caught up with many of her clients, she decided to change her approach. Now, seminars, classes, and success and accountability programs are all ways Heather and Secured Investment Corp are ensuring their clients earn all their money back (and then some).

Buying Foreclosures, with John Souza

Buying Foreclosures, with John Souza

Welcome To The Real Estate Underground Show #34!


John is a long-time Hartford area landlord/investor. Real estate investing is in his blood as some of his earliest memories are working with family around properties fifty years ago. He bought his first property in 1990 and has worked with his brother for the last 30-plus years, building and managing the portfolio and running the day-to-day operations in Hartford’s historic west end.


He has served on multiple real estate related boards over the years, most recently volunteering as President of the CT Coalition of Property Owners (CCOPO). CCOPO tirelessly works to educate and inform State legislators, small investors, and the public about landlord/ tenant issues. We retain a lobbyist to keep abreast of pending legislation enabling us to alert local landlord groups and guide them in grass root efforts to communicate with elected officials on critical issues. (Recent issues CCOPO has worked on: Hiding of Summary process records, energy star ratings for apartments, elimination of lapse of time evictions, fair rent commissions, eliminating criminal records) We guide members through the art of preparing testimony for public hearings, provide a forum to network with other investors, and offer opportunities for members to expand their real estate investing knowledge.   


In his free time, he coaches youth wrestling, curses at golf courses and skis with his family, and enjoys collecting vintage cameras and uranium glassware.

The Beauty of Creative Financing, with Lou Brown

The Beauty of Creative Financing, with Lou Brown

Welcome To The Real Estate Underground Show #33!


Lou Brown has students in all fifty states, across Canada, and ten foreign countries that have long regarded the training systems and forms created by Lou Brown as the best in the industry. Quoted as an expert by many publications and authors, "Lou" draws from a wide and varied background as a real estate investor, having been buying property since 1977.


He invested in Single-family homes, apartments, hotels, and developed subdivisions. These experiences have given him a proving ground for today's most cutting-edge concepts in the real estate investment industry. He's widely known as a creative financing genius with his deal structuring concepts.


Lou Brown's passion for Real Estate began as a teenager. His mother had a friend from work (who he affectionately called Aunt Mabel). Mabel and her husband "Uncle George," lived in a duplex and were able to buy it. They rented out the other side and were able to live for free. The next year, they purchased another duplex on the same street. Then they bought another and another. Pretty soon, they moved out of that duplex into a lovely, big house on a corner lot with a large yard and a Cadillac in the driveway.


Lou saw that the secret to their lavish lifestyle came from accumulating property. Mabel showed him how to buy his first home in 1976 when he barely scraped by in a dead-end job. Once Lou learned how to buy property without borrowing money from a bank, he was unstoppable. Today, countless investors in all fifty states, across Canada, and fifteen foreign countries as far away as Australia and New Zealand, regard the training, systems, and forms created by Louis Brown as the best in the industry.


What started as a desperate attempt to drag himself and his single mom out of poverty has become one of the real estate's most incredible success stories. "Lou" draws from a wide and varied background as a real estate investor and continues to be quoted as an expert by many publications and authors for decades. He's invested in single-family homes, apartments, hotels, and notes, and Lou has developed subdivisions and built and renovated homes and apartments. These experiences have given him a proving ground for learning and teaching the most cutting-edge concepts in real estate today.
