About Gabriel Contreras

Corporate Partner

What is an "Entrepreneur"?

My research says…

“A person who organizes and manages a business undertaking, assuming the risk for the sake of a profit.”

“A person who takes possession of a new enterprise, venture or idea and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and the outcome.”

Author, successful entrepreneur and one whom I consider my mentor Michael Gerber wrote, “The entrepreneur is our visionary, the creator in each of us. We’re born with that quality and it defines our lives as we respond to what we see, hear, feel, and experience. It is developed, nurtured, and given space to flourish or is squelched, thwarted, without air or stimulation, and dies.”

My name is Gabriel Contreras.

I’ve been involved in upwards of a few hundred real estate transactions. In my early years (1996-1998) as a Real Estate Agent (Realtor) and thereafter as an Investor with over 100 personal investment purchases under my belt plus many more through Joint Ventures in addition to others as their Coaching Partner. 
 
I state the above from a humble position simply to give credit and value to my opinions and believes in regards to the field of Real Estate Investing.
 
I began studying Creative Real Estate Investing and quickly discovered that there is so much more opportunity outside the traditional and conventional methods of buying and selling real estate commonly used by real estate agents and brokers.

 

Over the years I’ve invested heavily in learning the ins and outs of this business of buying and selling houses through both ongoing education and as mentioned above “hands on experience.”


Success and Triumph Carries with It Evidence!

When it comes to getting access to the best of the best knowledge and specialized business tactics my belief is… get it from the proven professionals in the business, from those who have walked the walk and continue to be involved in the business. 
​ 
Access to these experts is available to all and I’m proud to disclose that I’ve received my training and education from some of the best trainers in the country.
 
During the past 20 plus years I’ve hired several mentors and coaches and I continue to learn, mastermind and even had the opportunity to teach and mentor. 
 
If you’ve been remotely searching or have been involved anywhere in the field of Real Estate Investing, even to the smallest degree, you would have for sure heard mention of at least one or more of my list of amazing mentors both in the Real Estate world as well as Business and Personal Development.

I am proud to call the following my coaches, teachers and mentors:

In the Real Estate Arena

  • Ron LeGrand
  • Robert G Allen
  • Zig Ziglar
  • Robert Kiyosaki
  • Richard Roop
  • Floyd Wickman
  • Mike Ferry
  • Greg Minner (My RE Broker)

Personal & Business Development Arena

  • Earl Nightingale
  • Brain Tracy
  • Napoleon Hill
  • Tony Robbins
  • Marshall Sylver
  • Armand Morin
  • Michael E Gerber
I’ve attended a multitude of courses, classes, training seminars, boot camps, and real estate presentations. My bookshelves are jam packed with books and audio/video courses as well as my walls proudly displaying certificates, licenses and recognitions of attendance to some the best educational events over the past one and one half decades. I continue to be open-minded to new information and I’m committed to keep abreast of new, up to date techniques and investment practices in both real estate and business rules, laws and regulations.

 

The focus of my Real Estate Investment business experience is primarily buying and selling houses with long term creative financing. Although at the time of acquisition we go in prepared to be involved for the long term (Keepers), we will gladly sell just as soon as it makes financial sense to do so (Flippers).

 

Working with existing loans, seller participation and private funding is our biggest strength. This is what enables us to create flexible opportunities for our buyer clients since the number one method of selling for us is through seller financing, followed by our well known lease option program.

 

Given that we’ve had the exposure, experience and opportunity to be involved in some of the most dramatic changing markets with the passing of the years, we now know that the best approach to running a long term Real Estate Business is having an arsenal of possible solutions to both ‘the buying’ and ‘the selling’ of our product (houses). As one of my favorite trainers says “We must learn to become ‘Transaction Engineers’.” – Ron LeGrand.


It is crystal clear to me after several millions of dollars of direct involvement in this exciting, honorable and respectable field of Residential Real Estate Investing that in this and any business…

Financial success can only be accessed through service to others, the greater the fortune is that we desire, the greater our service must be or the more people we must provide our services to!

In The Spirit of Service!


I Will Make the Best Use of my God Given Abilities by Putting them to Work on Constructive, Productive and Righteous Dealings. This Provides my Family and Me with the Material Luxuries this World has to Offer and Still Realize the Ideal Mission of Creating Sufficient Wealth so that I may Share Unselfishly and Motivate Others with Less Fortune!
