About Real Estate Skills

Hi, I'm Alex Martinez,

Real Estate Entrepreneur and creator of Real Estate Skills.

When I was 19 years old, I was making sandwiches for $10 bucks an hour.  I found Real Estate at age 20.  That year, my team & I completed 50+ wholesale & flip deals and it changed my life forever. 

Today, I continue to wholesale, flip, & invest into rental properties while helping others to develop the necessary real estate skills for accomplishing their own financial & life goals.

Welcome to Real Estate Skills.

Some people call it luck.  It's easy to look past the hours upon hours of research, studying, and action it took to get here.

Here’s the truth...

I developed my real estate skills through mentors, books, programs, and, most importantly, through DOING THE WORK.  I didn’t have any family members in the real estate industry.  Heck, I even thought “commercial" real estate had something to do with television ads.

You see, early in my real estate journey, I would work from morning till night, and when I was done with my work, I would then go to the nearest coffee shop and read real estate books until I got kicked out of the coffee shop.  Then, I would repeat this process each and every day.

Throughout my progression as a real estate professional and entrepreneur, I have found that there are multiple avenues to achieve our financial goals through real estate.

This is one of the reasons why real estate is so exciting!

Whether it’s real estate investing, being a real estate agent, broker, a lender, developer, landlord, contractor, Air BnBer; the list really goes on and on.  The reality is that there is no right or wrong path in real estate to get where you want to go.

We’re here to help you on whatever path you choose.

Hi, I'm Ryan Zomorodi,

Co-Founder of Real Estate Skills and Multi-Million Dollar Real Estate Investor.

Over the past decade, I've had an amazing chance to become financially independent through real estate investing and I've also been able to help hundreds of individuals accelerate their journey to financial freedom. But, it wasn't always that way.

In fact, a few short years ago I was a broke student doing whatever it took to make ends meet. I went down the traditional path of working my way through school, earning my college degree, and landing a high-paying sales job at a Fortune 50 company selling sugar water.

I quickly learned that the skills needed to master that role would only help me climb the corporate ladder, a 30-40 year endeavor that would require a relentless dedication to that company. The truth was, my employer actually didn't want me to become wealthy and independent. This crushed my soul. I had butterflies in my stomach every Sunday night, apprehending the week ahead.

I spent all of my nights and weekends searching for a way out. I read every self-improvement book, listened to every podcast on entrepreneurship, and spoke with anyone who was more successful than me in my network.

Then one day, the lightbulb went off. I realized the only way to become the best version of myself and achieve my goals was through owning my own businesses and investing in real estate.

Since then, I quit my corporate job and have played almost every role in the industry, including investor in real estate across a dozen states, wholesaler, real estate agent, property manager, leasing agent, private money lender, capital partner, and most recently, real estate developer building new construction homes.

As COO of Real Estate Skills and Managing Editor of our educational blog, I'm passionate about helping anyone who wants to go all-in on real estate and change their life, just like I did.

We are committed to your results. We are committed to your success.

You just don't know where to start or how to do it. And most "experts" have horrible advice:
  • "You need to spend years practicing to do your first real estate deal" (who has that kind of time?!)
  • "Just spend '$XXX,XXX' amount on marketing" (who has that kind of money?!)
  • "Just try these 100 tactics and see what works"
  • "It'll take years to hone your craft"

Follow conventional wisdom and you might still be dreaming about becoming a real estate professional years from now.

Now, here's the truth: Most people don't even want to build a real estate investing business because it takes a tremendous amount of effort (and, let's be honest, some luck, and sleepless nights).

But just about anyone can do their first deal.

What's the "secret?" You don't need more information - you need a system

Whether you've dreamed of doing your first flip, leaving a legacy, or using your real estate business to amplify your life...

You don't need:
  • Tons of free time
  • Inspirational speeches
  • More tactics
  • Years of patience and frustration

You just need a proven system and strategies to beat overwhelm and guide you from knowing nothing about real estate to doing your first deal.

And that's exactly what you'll learn in the Real Estate Skills Free Workshop.
