In fact, wholesaling is a best-kept-secret among seasoned real estate investors, and that’s where Anish Dave comes in. As the co-founder of BREIA, the Broward County Real Estate Investors Association in south Florida, Anish is an accomplished investor who’s turned his focus to mentoring others.
With a close affiliation to the National Real Estate Investors Association (NREIA), Anish delivers a unique mentoring and coaching model to neophyte investors. Instead of just educating their mentees and releasing them into the wild to fend for themselves, BREIA actually partners with their students, pounding the pavement, walking through homes, and even putting up 100% of the funds their students need to make these purchases.
Anish is one of the savviest investors in the country when it comes to wholesaling, which means you buy low and sell a little less low, making potentially tens of thousands of dollars within a few hours of the purchase and at no risk.
I’ve done a lot of work with Anish, his partner Ryan Kuhlman, and their organizations, and I can tell you that these guys are the real deal and really care. They make plenty of money, but that’s not all it’s about for them.
And in this podcast, Anish also gives us some really apt analysis on where our current real estate market will turn, including a tsunami of distressed properties again, which has true investors licking their chops.
I actually met Anish years back in a crazy social situation – a bachelor party week in Nicaragua (yes, you read that correctly!) where we barely got out unscathed, minus the bachelor, who left after the first night!
Hence, that’s why I’m wearing my Nicaragua baseball jersey in this video interview with Anish.
Enjoy this podcast interview with one of the best real estate investors you’ll ever meet - and enjoy one of the funniest stories you’ll hear at the very end about a Columbian condo, a new couch, and Pornhub! (NSF).

He has been a realtor since 2004 working with large investment groups and developing initiatives with non-profit organizations in the South Florida market.

He has earned a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Finance from the University of South Florida.
Anish has traveled extensively in Central and South America since living in Miami for the last eleven years.

Anish is always educating himself to keep ahead of a very dynamic market in South Florida. Anish has a vast knowledge of real estate and a specialty in short sales. He joined the Broward Real Estate Investors Association team to direct the new BREIA/MD-REIA Mentoring Program with Ryan Kuhlman.

What is BREIA?
The Broward Real Estate Investors Association is an organization and networking platform for real estate investors, real estate professionals and homeowners. It is our intention to educate and connect our community and to motivate people interested in real estate to achieve the success they desire. The ongoing education is endless, and as a result, hopefully your goals will continue to evolve and your success in the real estate business will increase from being involved with BREIA.
In addition, BREIA provides a friendly atmosphere which promotes networking and allows all in attendance to grow by learning from other’s experiences. The founders of BREIA firmly believe that some of the best lessons have been learned from others who have chosen to share their experiences and save others from the school of hard knocks. As we are always expanding our network, BREIA has now expanded to Miami Dade with the newly formed Miami Dade Real Estate Investors Association. We have always been involved in real estate in Miami Dade county, but now we are building our corporate structure to have more of a foundation here in South Florida.
Both BREIA and the MD-REIA are the only chapters of the National Real Estate Investors Association. This gives our members even more benefits leveraged by our connection with NREIA.
But she chose the best for last, becoming a managing partner at Empire Home Loans Inc., a people-centric mortgage firm in Sacramento, CA. Julie took that leap and was tasked with the most pivotal component of the whole operation: PEOPLE!
“My strengths are found with people,” says Julie. “Coaching people, hiring people, and leading people – not just managing. So, my mandate with Empire Home Loans was always simple: to recruit the right talent, develop them, and put them in positions to succeed.”
For instance, one of Julie’s goals with Empire is to use her platform as an owner to empower other women in business, helping them shatter the glass ceiling in the real estate and mortgage fields.
That's no small feat, but if anyone can do it, it's Julie, who's graduated from some of the finest leadership, communication, and management courses in the world like the National Speakers Association NSA. She's also served as the PR Chairperson of the Sacramento CAMP Board for six years, co-chaired the Women's Round Table – a business mastermind group, and graduated with distinction from Future Leaders, CMBA through Pepperdine University.
Not only will she serve as an ambassador to loan officers who want to join the Empire Home Loans team and learn how to thoroughly outpace the competition but use her vast experience to create the best user experience in the entire mortgage industry. Anywhere. Period.
“It’s my job to establish our marketing and branding, but, most importantly, to drive a winning culture. The main reason why the three of us are such great partners is that our talents are all so different. I say culture eats strategy for breakfast … and Anthony says a great strategy should include culture. Of course, we’re both right – as long as the client benefits!”
