I'm pumped about this podcast today. One thing that I love to do and also I hear this feedback from guys all the time in iTunes reviews and the reviews everywhere else and emails and Facebook messages I get from everybody, that they love case studies. You guys love case studies. You love to hear someone else's journey, their successes, their failures, the things that they went through, the trials, the tribulations and what got them to where they are.
So I'm bringing on another one of our amazing clients, R.J. Bates with Titanium Investments, today. And R.J. is one of the top investors in Dallas, Texas, but also he's branched out into multiple markets. He's in the Hawaii market, he's in the Anchorage, Alaska market now, and one back Midwest. And we discuss his journey here and his journey, it's one that was really interesting. I found it fascinating because he's a guy who kind of found himself falling into house flipping and wholesaling.
He didn't set out to do that. He actually was a roofing contractor, hustling, selling roofs. And then one of his clients said, "Hey, can you also fix this rehab house?" And he's like, "Man, I think that's a good business opportunity." Before you know it, he's running a $2 million plus a year wholesaling and house flipping company based in Dallas, Texas, but in four different markets. You're going to hear his journey, you're going to hear his trials. You're going to hear the things that he failed on early on. You're going to hear why he has a business partner and how they work together.
And you're also going to hear what works best for him for his marketing mix. He uses online a lot. He uses Facebook a lot. He's going to talk about that, but he also breaks down the other things that are working insanely well in this cluttered market for him, even when he enters into new markets. Last, how does he enter into new markets? Because he's just one guy with a business partner in Dallas there. How is that he's entering into these new markets? Well, he talks about how he's finding his boots on the ground people, business partners in those markets and how he structures it.
Without further adieu, welcome in R.J. Bates from Titanium Investments into this podcast.
