James Gage has undoubtedly become one of America's premiere authorities on Creative Real Estate Investing and Negotiating. Gage originally began working in a variety of career fields from a paramedic to a Federal and State Arbitrator for over 15 years. In addition to his real estate and legal expertise, Gage holds a vast amount of credentials including an accounting degree, financial & estate planning background, and IRS Arbitrator. Gage has also appeared on hundreds of radio programs across the nation.
Gage, like many "rags to riches" stories begin, started out with no money, a desire to succeed, and a great amount of common sense. With these ingredients he was ready to pursue his dream. Within a very short time, he mastered the real estate market and began creating concepts and techniques that are the backbone of the Gage Success Formula.
In the early stages of his real estate investing career he obtained his real estate license and began to sell properties. He soon came to realize that the properties could be controlled easily without ownership through a Lease Purchasing and a Negotiating System. He controlled duplexes and 3 deckers/multi-families, condos, town homes, mobile homes, pre-foreclosures and probate assets with this method, along with investing in short sales and related strategies.
Through his experiences Mr. Gage realized the need for an overall consistent cash flow formula which would bring a consistent 6-7 figure income. He attributes his real estate wealth and success to the following creative strategies: Rent to Own, AKA Lease Purchase, Short Sales and Probates. These strategies also work hand in hand with his Short Term Investing Strategies.
Gage believes that when investing in real estate or pursuing any other endeavor to remember that "negotiating is truly the "Million Dollar Skill," we negotiate everything from the time we are in the cradle to the grave so it is vital that everyone master this process."
Once Gage had actualized his dream of financial security and independence he began his mentoring and teaching programs. Unlike many educators and mentors, Gage continues to actively pursue real estate investing. Gage has even been quoted by CNBC's Maria Bartiromo on the condition of the real estate market.
Gage's Lease Purchase, Short Sale and Probate Investing courses have been a wild success across the nation. To date, thousand have taken his One-On-One training programs/seminars and thousands of James' students use his formula everyday to become financially independent.
