From Kevin: “After a 30-year military and government career, where I spent time in over 80 countries, including some less than friendly places, I wanted a new beginning and new challenges in a completely different field. Real estate and property management seemed like the thing to do. I figured there were fewer guns involved and most people, while not always happy, rarely want to actually kill you.”

“I laugh when agents and managers talk about the ‘stress’ in the real estate field. My specialized background gives me a unique perspective and shaped my attitude, character, and convictions. I’m I universally loved for my charm? Maybe not. But people who know and trust me understand that I follow my own advice. Only one investor has surpassed me in all these years, using huge amounts of risk-debt. Yes… it worked for him. Especially in the last 5 years.”

“I started Blue Olive Properties in 1999 to manage my investments. As my portfolio grew, I studied successful models and learned what was needed to buy and manage investment real estate. We incorporated in 2001, and I became a licensed real estate broker in 2004. I found that I enjoyed helping investors, and it was rewarding to watch their investments flourish over time. As a result, the business continued to grow as the investors I worked with added new properties to their portfolios.”

“I have created and guided 15 millionaires over the years. I teach investing classes and have had well over 2000 students attend. So do the math on that scenario. Anybody can invest and build wealth…but most won’t. It takes discipline, sacrifice, and commitment to the process. But over time the rewards are immense.”

“After a recent class, a man walked up and said he had taken my class in 2006. I said ‘Oh, did you do what I told you to do back then?’ His reply was a dejected “NO!” I quietly said: ‘Bet you wish you would have, huh?’”

Wow. What a difference the last 18 months have made since you came into the picture! We dumped a disastrous 13-unit portfolio into your lap that was bleeding money, and that was managed by a clown. You helped us identify which properties to sell and when, organized the (extensive) repair and remodel projects, showed us a proven investment model and helped us identify and purchase a solid 9 property newer construction portfolio that is running smoothly and spinning off considerable cash flow. We now have a clear financial picture and will be looking for house number 10 soon! Thanks to you and the Blue Olive team for everything you did and continue to do for us. We are grateful beyond words.

We cannot express how much your intense work and skill have meant to our family. You helped us put a ton of dead money to work and the returns have been astounding over the past 12 years, especially when looking at tax implications. Now that we are fully retired, we are enjoying the fruits of our labors immensely, and your expert advice is a huge part of our total financial picture. Thank you so much for your friendship and all the expert advice and timely actions you have so generously given over the years.

Wanted to send you a thank you for the great work in selling my rental properties in Aurora and Highlands Ranch. I really appreciate that you were able to get above the top market price. I especially want to thank you for helping me find the new rentals in Highlands Ranch. I was nervous doing the 1031 Exchanges and was watching the clock tick as I needed to get the replacement properties under contract to meet the time requirements of the exchange. It all worked out great, and really appreciate the new tenants you put in right after the closings. By the way, we cannot believe the value of our (paid off early using your methods) personal home you helped us buy back in 2010. Talk about the greatest buy at the market bottom purchase! We were apprehensive buying in that terrible market, but your research showed we were bouncing along the bottom... and you were right! The house is almost triple what we paid for it back then. Wow. Thanks! Looking forward to many profitable years to come. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the awesome work over the last 14 years. Your ability to find profitable investments in every market is amazing. Just when we think we are topped out and can't possibly buy another house, you find a way to access cash, structure deals, and help us continue to grow our portfolio. Our kids no longer want you to adopt them now that they see where we are today with our portfolio.

Thank you for listing and selling eight of my rental properties in Aurora. You were able to get them all sold quickly and at full asking price or above. Greatly appreciate your expertise and guidance in setting up 1031 Exchanges on these sales, and in taking a portfolio view in lining up the replacement properties. Pulling out some tax-free cash was a huge bonus too. You were able to find the perfect luxury condo near Coors Field, get it under contract for a great price, and get the deal closed quickly. As I near retirement, your help in transitioning my investments into a very low maintenance model was invaluable. I really appreciate having a friend and caring professional like you to partner with to ensure my long years of real estate investing pay off with a very comfortable retirement.
