Bio: Scott Krone is a Chicago native whose career in architecture began in 1991 by pursuing his Masters of Architecture from the Illinois Institute of Technology. While obtaining his degree, he also worked as a Project Manager for Optima, Inc. During his time at Optima, Krone’s responsibilities included such notable projects as the 400 unit Cormandel in Deerfield, IL, the 40 unit HedgeRow in Winnetka, IL, and the 51 unit Optima Center Wilmette in Wilmette, IL. In 2012, Krone founded Coda Management Group – a firm who specializes in managing real estate assets.

In addition, Krone has authored High Performance Homes – Navigating the Green Road to Your Dream Home, a book for homeowner’s seeking to incorporate green technology into their home. Show Notes: Danny is joined this week by Scott Krone, Founder of CODA Management that teams up investors to purchase undervalued warehouse space and convert it into climate controlled, self-storage facilities that are managed by a top 3 operator. In this episode, Scott shares with us what he considers to be the most valuable lessons he’s learned throughout his career. He begins by saying “develop a strong team,” and explains how he relies on a strong team of brokers, contractors, lenders, and more to be able to keep everything running smoothly. Similarly, he stresses the importance of building relationships with brokers, attorneys, and title companies because they can be a major lead source for you in the future. Scott also shares with us how to deal with upset neighbors when working on a new project, much less one as large as the properties he’s dealing with. The advice he shares can be applied to many situations, ranging from the large-scale example he gives down to your local REIA meetup. The most important thing that Scott says he hopes people take away from the interview is to really, truly know your market. He mentions that if you can’t give specifics about exactly where your market is in the cycle and why, then you could probably stand to learn a bit more. This episode is jam-packed with helpful tips and advice that applies to investors at any point in their career.
157: Finding a Partner After the Market Crash with Marty Boardman and Manny Romero
Episode of
Flipping Junkie Podcast with Danny Johnson
Marty: Marty started investing in real estate in 2001 after working as a television news cameraman at the CBS affiliate in Phoenix. He quit his job in 2002 and went on to build a $16 million real estate portfolio. But when the market crashed in 2008 he lost it all. In 2009 he started rebuilding his business by purchasing foreclosed properties at the auction. His strength is finding, analyzing and buying distressed real estate. Marty wrote Fixing and Flipping Houses: Strategies for the Post Boom Era in 2012, a book detailing his approach to rehabbing and selling single-family homes. He’s a licensed Realtor in Arizona and Wisconsin. Manny: Originally from Pasadena, California, Manny Romero moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 2001. Soon after arriving in the valley of the sun he developed an interest in real estate. Home prices in Arizona were much lower compared to his home state of California and he saw a lot of opportunity. Manny went to the real estate investing school of hard knocks. He had tremendous success from 2004-2007 but when the market crashed he learned some very hard lessons. His strength is developing relationships with investors and raising capital. He’s also an excellent project manager. In this episode, Manny and Marty of Fix and Flip Hub join Danny to talk about each of their journeys in real estate investing and how they’ve found steady success in the industry. The experienced partners now specialize in various types of fix and flips such as turnkey and value add. They touch on the pros and cons of each method and how they were able to make each work for them and their business. They also share the simple way that they’re able to save money in their projects. This is a great episode for anyone looking to possibly scale their business and explore all of the different options available to them when it comes to achieving freedom by flipping.  
156: Create Passive Income From States Away with Rita Medeiros
Episode of
Flipping Junkie Podcast with Danny Johnson
This week Danny is joined by Rita Medeiros, an investor out of Florida who focuses on out-of-state, single-family properties and has acquired over 21 residences in 11 months and 21 rehabs. In this episode Rita breaks down how she manages the properties from states away and how she’s used this model to create a long term flow of passive income, something she claims to be very serious about (as we probably all should be!). She walks us through her cash flow criteria and how she took care of estimating repairs from states away. Rita and Danny also discuss both the positives and the negatives of managing affordable housing within Section 8 areas. Rita breaks the stereotypes that a lot of us might have about certain types of tenants and explains the reward that comes with helping provide a single mother who might be struggling just to find a home for her and her family. Other topics covered in the episode include how she’s limiting her competition, funding the deals, and what she considers to be the biggest factor in her success as a real estate investor.
