It's refreshing that he cares enough to work with you and is actually doing deals still himself.



The fear I felt when I hit my first challenge in Cody's mentoring program was quickly erased when his team of coaches surrounded me with 24/7 support and encouragement.

How this Soldier Did Deals While on Active Duty in Afghanistan

Hi! My name is Ben Sherman and I am a Clever Investor. I have been on Active Duty with the Air Force for 12+ years. My wife and I decided to get into real estate investing back in March of 2014, when the Air Force as well as the Department of Defense in general was going through a manning reduction. My career in the AF was not certain and my wife and I were looking for another income option should I get handed my walking papers. I was not given a pink slip, however I was deployed to Afghanistan for a year. This was also after my wife and I had invested mega money into a different real estate education group (never knew clever investor existed). We had 4 months from the day we signed up with them until I left for Afghanistan to try and get a deal done. We failed miserably. We were trying to do remote investing, and our “mentor” was telling us to do some shady and illegal things involving the VA and HUD. We tried to get the business going, but we were not successful before I deployed.

If you are not aware of flat fee listing services, there are flat fee services in almost every real estate market. Why I like ‘em…A flat fee listing service is one where a broker will take a flat...
