Meet Cory Boatright

Thanks for offering the opportunity to share my story with you.

My name is Cory Boatright. I am 37 years old. I have started, run, or been directly involved with almost forty different companies ever since my early twenties. Many of them required good selling skills. That wasn’t a challenge for me. I have sold everything from Ginsu knives on eBay and Kirby vacuum cleaners door-to-door all the way to $50,000 high-end electronics online. Out of the forty-something companies, only two of them ever proved to be worthwhile endeavors. The other thirty-eight I decided to call “business therapy”.

Interestingly enough, both of the successful companies harnessed the power of the Internet to make their profits. After bringing in almost 4 million dollars in sales from the first company, I sold it and directed my passion to the world of real estate investing.

Why real estate? Well, most of my affluent customers in my first business owned real estate so I knew there was something to be learned in that industry. I was a complete novice to it. Oh by the way, did I mention that I didn’t even graduate from high school? Apparently my drive to succeed coupled with my persistence to not fail clouded my judgment of the value of formal education. So instead, I settled for a G.E.D. I’m not looking for any pity-party. I just mentioned this to demonstrate that if a high school dropout can make it, the doors are open for just about anyone else to do it too.

Now fast forward a bit into my real estate experiences. I started out being a “bird dog” which means I was out finding good deals on properties and getting paid a finders fee for it. That fee was usually $500 – $1,500. After I learned how much money the investor was making selling the houses I was bringing him, I quickly learned how to assign, wholesale and flip distressed properties. That brought in checks anywhere from $3,000 – $10,000. Not bad, but I had a hunch those properties were worth a lot more after they were fixed up. I decided to put together a skeleton rehab crew and thought I would start making $15,000 – $30,000 per deal, but was sadly mistaken. My rehab attempts ended up being more of a mirage instead of a real profit center. My $30,000 paydays actually came out to be more around $17,500 when considering all the contractor frustrations, material costs, labor, marketing, selling and other holding costs.

Needless to say I had more fun assigning contracts. It wasn’t until around 2004 that I stumbled my way through a short sale. I made over $30,000 on that first short sale deal! It was the most money that I had ever made on one single real estate transaction. I couldn’t believe the lender would accept less than what was owed to them for a payoff. I was immediately hooked. I quickly learned everything possible about the process. The more I learned about Short Sales, the more I was asked by other investors to partner on deals. I quickly became known as the local “go-to” guy for doing short sales.

Other investors continually asked me how they too could learn to do what I was doing. I knew from experience that most of the educational products available on short sales weren’t very informative. The selection was slim. After being asked by numerous fellow investors to teach and coach on the subject, I decided to dive in head first and write my first information product/home study course.       

The rest…as they say is history. I’ve been blessed to become an accomplished national speaker, real estate trainer and coach, professional writer, radio host, private consultant and even a musician. I also serves on the Board of Directors for a landlord and property investor association called ”Millionaire Possibilities” (MPREIA). I have been published in the Wall Street Journal for successful business aptitude and I continue to pursue real estate as a full-time investor and Loss Mitigation Specialist. I own several companies including a nationwide loss mitigation short sale service with a team of full-time debt negotiators and a short sale marketing brand (ShortSaleology.com) that offers high-end coaching programs, real estate partnership software and training programs. From synergetic team work my exceptional team has successfully discounted millions of dollars in debt from hundreds of banks all over the country via short sales. I have personally bought and sold single family, multi-family, commercial property and land. I continue to buy and hold properties for long term wealth planning and network with investors all over the world. At the age of 37, the biggest lesson I have learned in life is.. “Be a solutions provider by asking how you can serve one another better. The rewards of servant-hood are invaluable”- Cory Boatright     

“Cory Boatright is a flat out genius, yet he doesn’t showboat all his wisdom like other gurus. His short sale knowledge is unsurpassed and his team handles all our short sale work. Listen to him and take notes.”- Tim Mai – CEO of DoDeals.com and co-author of New York Times best-seller “The One Minute Millionaire”

    Thank you Cory for your expertise on Short Sale Negotiations. I have no doubt that the deal we just completed with you 10329 Buccaneer, would not have gone through if it were not for your knowledge on navigating through the FHA short sale process. Thanks to you we made an awesome $10,000.00 profit on the flip of our short sale. I highly recommend Cory's team at FMC SERVICES , for all of your short sale negotiations. We have more deals in the pipeline and are confident we will get successful results.
    We are also planning to use FMC Services with our Florida Division in 2009.
