Key Takeaways:

“I kept finding out over and over that all millionaires had real estate and that was the way they built wealth. That’s how I dove into it.” – Gualter Amarelo  

“You really got to evaluate yourself as a human being. What is your problem? Every person has one of two problems – either you have too much time or you have too much money. If you have too much time in your hands, then it’s time to learn how to lead generate, and lead generation really comes from knowing where the person is, knowing who has what you’re looking for.” – Gualter Amarelo  

“As you’re building your team, focusing your team on cold calling is going to be the most effective form of marketing; not cold calling a nobody, but cold calling on the right people.” – Gualter Amarelo  

“Agents, they don’t like to actually work. They want free leads. 9 out of 10 agents won’t actually do the work. If you hand a list to an agent, you really got to follow up, really got to check in on them. But 1 of those agents, 1 out of 10, will actually be a killer, and those are the people you’d want to nurture and really build relationships with and encourage because agents are the partier of the world.” – Gualter Amarelo  

“A lot of times, it’s realizing that this person’s probably not ever gonna do anything and just being okay with it and reducing the amount of time you’re spending with them.” – Gualter Amarelo  

“People who show up to training do well. People who don’t, don’t. Results will vary.” – Gualter Amarelo
