Who Is Prince…?

 

Who is Prince…?

You know if you would have told me two years ago that I would be flipping homes in the Dallas TX area with none of my own cash or credit…I might have called you crazy…but little did I know how far my career in real estate would advance…

To answer the headline above, my name is Prince Patridge and I can proudly call myself a real estate investor who has actually done more then one deal! It all started back in 2012, when I graduated high school, I knew a few things…

  • I didn’t want to go to college (which I did…for like 1 month…)
  • I wanted to make a lot of money….
  • I wanted to make a difference for my families legacy…

Enter the Car Business

So what did I do…? I started selling cars and have been in the industry for about 5 years now. I will be up front with you…I work my day job selling cars and flip real estate part time. Doing so has enabled me to not only live stress free, but to excel faster in real estate as well…(more on that later).

So anyways…there I was sitting on the bench outside on the car lot waiting for a customer…and I was looking over to the right and I could see one of my co-workers who was an elderly man…say 55 or so…argue with one of the managers about not being promoted…

You see he had been at my dealership for 10 years now and he STILL had not been offered a management position…so that day he gave the sales manager and ultimatum..

Promote me or I’m quitting…

And it just dawned on me…see at this point I was already 1.5 years into the car business and I just couldn’t imagine being being 55 ish…or older sitting outside in the heat of the day waiting for hours on end…not knowing if a customer was going to come in or not for the rest of my life…

 

Real Estate Or Die

So I quickly went inside and starting googling around on my computer…I HAD to do something…I looked up everything on making money or starting a business and for some reason I ended up choosing between stocks or real estate..

And I thought to myself…”This is it, I am going to pick one of these and fully commit”…it had been about a week or so and most of the courses I saw online were pretty expensive…I mean people were charging out the ass for this information.

Well…I sat there bummed for a little bit because I didn’t want to spend that much on these courses…so anyways one day I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw this real estate book being sold on amazon for like $15….

It was a no brainer for me….that day…I said what the hell and bought the book…the book came in about 1 week later…and I read it in one day. After that…I decided and made a pact with myself about the following:

I am committing myself FULLY into real estate…I don’t know anything about the business, have no connects, credibility or success…yet…

 

But No matter what I AM going to do this business and become very successful at it! And I WILL NOT give up NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS.

 

At the time little did I know what I would be getting myself into.

 

6 Months later…comes the first deal…

Now I am not going to lie…from the time I started my journey to the time I closed my first deal…took me a whole 6 MONTHS! 

Even though I wanted to give up so many times…by this time I had invested so much time, energy, effort and money into this gig…

And for me at the time just didn’t make sense to quit! I learned so much during that time and looking back reflecting on it all now…has been awesome. Its been a grand journey and its my pleasure to share with people and aspiring entrepreneurs the principals of success!

 

 

What’s today looking like…?

Well…20 + flip transactions later, lets just say the bank account is looking great and I am having more success in the business of real estate then I ever thought possible…

  • I made a networking group of which gets 30 or more people who attend every time!
  • I have successfully done multiple no cash or credit deals in real estate!
  • I have been interviewed by accredited authors and radio show host on my success!
  • I have done quite a few rehab where I go into the house fix it up and sell it for retail!
  • I’ve met some serious connects and have grown a bunch in the industry!

 

Purpose of this website…?

Good question…at first I thought the purpose of this site was going to be like a personal journal of sorts…where I would document my business and reflect on what’s working or whats not working currently…

Although with due time as of late..I have been attracting quite a bit of an audience of aspiring real estate entrepreneurs who have taken an interest in my journey and have been looking to me for: guidance, advice and consulting…

Now my business is always evolving and I am constantly learning new things as I go. So for now my purpose is to help others achieve success in real estate and to get they’re first deal. I remember after putting down the book feeling so overwhelmed…because I did not know what to do afterwards…

If your looking to get started in real estate…please feel free to reach out to me to see how I could possibly help you out!

Thank You for reading my story!

Sincerely
Prince
