Scott is the principal in 16 facilities totaling over 5,000 units and approximately 1 Million square feet of storage. His company was started in 2006 for the purpose of acquiring, developing and operating self-storage facilities, and has raised over $30 million in syndicates and private equity partnerships to fuel their growth.

Scott is also the founder and president of SelfStorageInvesting.com, a leading self-storage education company that offers courses, live events, mentoring, and coaching.

Basic Training Real Estate Boot Camp

"Everything you ever needed to know about
real estate investing…but were afraid to ask”

Everyone dreams of becoming a real estate investor, but very few actually do it. Why is that? Investing is fun and challenging, and the profits are fantastic. Plus, compared to other investments, you receive your profits in days (wholesaling), months (fix & flip), or years (rentals). So why don’t more people do it? The answer is simple; people don’t know how to get started. They don’t know what to do, where to turn, or who to trust. Well, if this is your predicament, our upcoming LIVE (and virtual) Basic Training Real Estate Boot Camp is for you! At the Boot Camp you will learn everything you need to know to get started as a real estate investor.

Our Boot Camp is scheduled for Saturday, June 26, 2021, 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. If you've been dreaming of becoming a real estate investor, but didn't know how to get started, this Basic Training Boot Camp is for you! This Boot Camp is hosted by the Los Angeles Real Estate Investors Club and will be taught by the worst military drill sergeant in the Western Hemisphere, Lloyd Segal.

Good News! This Boot Camp will both live and virtual. If you're ready to attend in person (with appropriate safety protocols in place) the Boot Camp will be LIVE in West LA. And for those that still prefer online in the comforts of your home, you will be able to attend through the miracle of Zoom.

In this intensive 8-hour Boot Camp, you will learn how to find deals, how to evaluate the market value of the property, how to submit offers, find the financing, and how to deal with escrow, title insurance, due diligence, and inspections, as well as the following:.

* How to find deals
* Foreclosure
* How to wholesale (Assignments)
