Hi, I’m Rick Otton. Back when I was younger, I’ve held various odd jobs such as candy store clerk, investment advisor, jingle writer, musician, roofer, Contiki tour bus driver, singing waiter, movie critic, and stand up comedian among others
But my other passion has always been property investing. While in Dallas, I noticed that a lot of property for sale were at bargain level prices because of the Savings and Loans Crisis. I saw an opportunity and thought about investing in property.
The problem was, I didn’t have a lot of cash or the ability to get bank loans. As a foreigner, I didn’t have a credit history in the U.S. so banks would not grant me home loans. The lessons I learnt from my experience in Dallas became the foundation of my We Buy Houses companies.
Zig Ziglar best sums up my motto: “You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”
I’ve learned that what people truly want is a solution to their problems. Buying and selling houses are simply means to solve their problems.
So while others are focused on just the transaction, I’ve learned to look past the deal and seek the underlying motivator of buyers and sellers. And in doing so, I’ve become the authority on solving seemingly “unsolvable” property problems in Australia and the United Kingdom.
In essence, I do not view myself in the property investing business. Rather, I am in the problem solving business because I help people solve their property problems.
In time, I’ve come across fellow investors who expressed their interest in doing what I do. As a result, I’ve been able to organise my approach and make my strategies replicable in any market condition.
Today I speak, invest and consult one-on-one and train groups how to invest in property in Australia and the UK.
