Defying Our Industry… Our Story

Posted by Kevin Clayson Tuesday, 23 June, 2020


Welcome to the very first episode of our brand new Replace Your Income podcast. My name is Kevin Clayson, and today, my partner, Steve Earl, and I will share how we started our industry-defying business, Done For You Real Estate.


Today’s real estate industry is riddled with misconceptions, with new investors being overwhelmingly encouraged to swing for the fences. 


It may sound exciting to some, but it’s a poor “strategy.” And definitely not something you’d want to stake your retirement on. 


The reality is most Americans simply can’t afford to swing for the fences – the consequences of striking out can be devastating. You could lose everything you’ve worked so hard for.


When Steve and I met a long time ago, we both were both drawn to a more conservative approach, revolved around replacing your income one property at a time. 


Our investment model was inspired by Moneyball, a sporting phenomenon that redefined baseball and showed that there’s a way of being competitive despite operating with a low budget. 


Using a safe strategy of investing in single-family residential real estate, we founded Done-For-You Real Estate. With over 13 years of experience and 4000 transactions, we proved that a “get rich slow” model, focused on hitting singles works time and time again.


We were never in it for the flash – our goal was to secure long term success.
