Steven Butala is a professional real estate investor. He has bought and sold over 15,000 properties. Since 1999, he has generated more than $20,000,000 without incurring leverage or debt from an original $8,000 investment. Steven currently holds properties all over the country with his partner Jill.
Steven’s key to success: “I buy property cheap enough so that when I wholesale it out, the buyers always make more money than I do on the asset. They come back for more, for life. When you start the deal with the buyer, finding a seller is simple and you don’t own the asset for long, if at all. Most investors have this backwards.”
Steven is the cofounder of LandAcademy where he and Jill complete real estate transactions with invited members and the members create long term equity for themselves.
Steven’s current focus is the acquisition of undervalued land and single family residences for immediate resale and sharing the decades of online self-created investments tools with members of Land Academy.
Steven loves data. He believes it’s at the core of purchasing real property and creating equity in its immediate re-sale. “We are a data company that happens to buy/sell real estate.”
Steven and Jill produce a daily podcast/radio syndication. They are planning a weekly video show on the topic of purchasing undervalued property by using data to submit offers to owners.
Jill DeWit is a professional real estate investor. She is the managing partner of LandStay.com and pivotal contributor to properly priced acquisitions. Jill has over 8,000 acquisitions and sales to her name.
Jill’s key to success: “I quickly build trust and create relationships through transparency and treating others with respect. I strive to communicate with people in their terms and have often been told by individuals that they only want to work with me.”
Jill is the cofounder of LandAcademy, where she and Steven have helped hundreds of new and seasoned real estate professionals. LandAcademy was created from an overwhelming request from land buying customers wanting to learn and perfect buying and selling undervalued property.
Jill loves inspiring and working with people. Jill believes that most obstacles are merely “speed bumps” and with focus and determination, anything is possible. “Members have told me stories such as how something I said changed their viewpoint and now they are on track to building small empires.”
Jill’s newest venture centers around women business owners and building an engaging, supportive community. As its Founder, Jill aligns these like-minded individuals, hosts speaking engagements, and produces print and online content.
