He began building his fortune in 1992 when he met a man who lived a modest life. The man had no higher education or training in real estate, he didn't own a computer, yet he was earning $80,000 a month in net sales and owned 100 properties. Inspired by what he learned, his focus shifted to real estate and he moved back to his native Nashville. He personally bought more than 450 homes while documenting the techniques that made him successful.
Robert believes that there are two parts to the realization of his success. First, success is when you set goals and are able to follow them through to fruition. His first goal was to be able to quit his job and focus on real estate. He wanted to make enough money as to where he didn't have to work for someone else. That became his benchmark. And now he wants to help others be successful. Robert donates his time, energy and money directly to charity. He supports five various organizations including; help for the homeless, funds to perform thousands of eye operations overseas for the less fortunate. Finally, he started a school in Israel for teens and college age youth, who had been kicked out from everywhere else. At the school there are three steps to maintaining progress and enrollment. The first step is to study. They each are required to spend time devoting their self to education everyday. Secondly, everyone must start their own business; learn how to be self sufficient and to rely only on themselves. Lastly, they must perform good deeds for others, each and everyday.
Although he is a successful writer, teacher and public speaker, Mr. Shemin continues to be a full time investor while actively managing his own real estate. He enjoys teaching the strategies that helped him become a multi-millionaire by the age of thirty-two and loves to help his students become millionaires.
One very important piece of advice from Mr. Shemin to a novice investor is to take action and this happens in two parts. Number one, get started! Don't settle on a wrong focal point. After you make your first deal, the following transactions become easier. You learn what to do and how to do it, and how to avoid mistakes. Secondly, don't go at it alone. Find a pro to help you along the way for guidance.
Another crucial facet to remember in the commencement of your investing career is that the best way to get started is to be frugal. Don't use all your money and/or credit. Learn alternate ways like lease option, quick turn and wholesale. And the most important quality necessary to achieve success in real estate is persistence; stick with it until you achieve the goals you have set for yourself.
The aspect that Robert enjoys most about what he does is the tangibility. You can see it, touch it and feel it. As well as the potential to make enough on one deal, that is more than most people will make in a year. It is a field of employment that is always changing, where you can always learn something new. He has evolved professionally, with the changing tides of the real estate market.
