Nathan Amaral

Senior Education Consultant & Inner Circle Home Town Consultant

(803) 831-2858

Nathan started his Real Estate investing business like most entrepreneurs do, reading books, attending seminars and being in coaching programs. He studied relentlessly for 2 years, knew almost every Real Estate term and type of contract to close a deal… but still no deals.

It wasn’t until Nathan borrowed $25,000 and enrolled in a coaching program to have a Real Estate Coach come to his hometown. It was with this short term loan he knew he had “to do” the business. No more excuses, he had no other options, it was all-in for him.

Within 2 days his coach “forced” him to submit 11 offers, 4 got accepted and he took action on 2. The first 2 opportunities he sent to a business partner for $1000 a piece. Then with the final 2 he did a quick flip and make $18,000 on both of them. Nathan was only 20 years old.
He continued to do this quick flip strategy for 3 more years before moving into other strategies of Real Estate investing like lease options, land, apartments, rehabbing and seller financing.

10 years later Nathan has expanded on that same solid foundation of training from his coach. When he speaks around the country he still shares about the day he cashed in those 2 checks that changed his life forever. Now he shares the same financial freedom strategies with you.
