Vicky SchettiniFour years ago, I was homeless. Now, I’m building homes for other people.

In 2012, I found myself working from paycheck-to-paycheck with ONLY $25 a month to spare. As a single mom, I wanted financial security for my child and I. I set out to make the right connections. I learned how flip homes in California. Although I had early success, legal expenses from the divorce were extracting all the profits. Undeterred, I was determined to build wealth and my legacy for my family. In 2074, my daughter graduated high school and started her new chapter going to LSUA. I was now one of the many women who have the empty-nest syndrome. I took a leap of faith and relocated to Jackson, MS to be closer to my only daughter. After several setbacks that left me homeless, I was finally able to close my first home with only $500 left to my name.

In 2018, I founded WIT (Whatever It Takes) Property Finders. I was already on track to accomplish my financial freedom building my wealth and legacy. From those humble beginnings, I stayed focused
and driven. I own and owned several multi-family complexes, over 700 SFRs (Single Family Residences), retail and commercial buildings. In the last four years, I have executed over 7,000 traditional and non-traditional transactions ranging from flips, buy and holds, notes, wraps, partials, and wholesales of single-family residences, multi-family, storage units, mobile home parks, retail and commercial buildings all combine totaling over $72 million in real estate.

Currently, I am the author of “Investing Real Estate Secrets,” set to launch in August of 2019. My most recent accomplishment, I have completed my offer, “Wealth and Empowerment – Real Estate for Financial Freedom” product. My goal is to use my product and all of the knowledge I’ve gained over the last few years to help at least one million people. Once again, I am in full speed, determined to make a difference in other peoples lives.

Randy Hughes

Posted on February 1, 2019 by

Randy HughesRandy Hughes, aka Mr. Land Trust, started life out on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. His father was an alcoholic and his mother was left to raise four children on a clerk’s wages. None of his relatives owned their own business … everyone worked for wages.

His father charged the weekly groceries so that the family would have food on the table. There was no stable income for any future education much less the current needs of the family.

No intellectual or financial direction was taught in his schools or church.  No blood relative had anything to offer other than “working for the man” at an hourly wage. Bank savings and financial security was what only the rich had. He was doomed for financial failure and unhappiness for the rest of his life.

Randy knew that there MUST be a better way to live. He decided to break the cycle of poverty in his family genes. Education came first. Randy graduated from Eastern Illinois University and began buying single family homes for rental while in college. After college, the Randy tried many different types of businesses, but always came back to the Single Family Home as the IDEAL investment. Since purchasing his first rental house in 1969, Randy hasn’t looked back!  Read More→

Scott Sekulow

Posted on August 5, 2018 by

Scott SekulowI grew up in retail and by the age of 12 was a partner in my first business.  If you are a long term resident of Atlanta, you might remember the pretzel booth at the Atlanta Flea Market. Well that was me. At age 18, I was a licensed real estate agent, but gave it up years later to do other work. I have a BA in Management from Mercer University. I have owned several businesses over the years. 

After receiving Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah, I went back to school and received a BS in Biblical Education graduating Summa Cum Laude. As a hobby, I got into flipping houses after rehabbing a rental property for my mother-in-law. I oversee and manage her rental properties. 3 years ago, I started buying and fixing houses.  I have bought and sold over 50 houses (worth over $6,000,000). I specialize in cosmetic fix and flips. I also wholesale deals to private investors. I am an all cash investor which gives me an edge over the hard money investor. 

Many know me as Rabbi Scott Sekulow and others as “The Flipping Rabbi”. I believe I have been so successful so quickly because I follow a biblical approach to all the work that I do and I give a  10% tithe of the profits to God’s work first.
