Smart Real Estate Investing w/ Chris Prefontaine

Having been through the 2008 global economic crisis, Chris decided that there had to be a better way to buy real estate instead of getting a loan and putting his own assets on the line.

Chris has been in real estate for almost 30 years.

His experience ranges from constructing new homes in the ’90s and owning a Realty Executive Franchise to running his own investments(commercial & residential) and coaching clients throughout North America.

 

Today, Chris runs his own buying and selling businesses with his family team, which purchases 2-5 properties monthly, so they’re in the trenches every single week. He is also a 3-time best-selling author of Real Estate on Your Terms, The New Rules of Real Estate Investing, and Real Estate Investing for Women and is the Founder and CEO of Smart Real Estate Coach and host of the Smart Real Estate Coach Podcast.

On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Chris and I discuss why he never gets a loan to buy real estate, why it is so important to have a mentor, and why he is so passionate about helping others succeed.
