VestorPRO provides the systems, tools, and coaching to get new investors started, and help existing real estate investor businesses grow. However, there are many systems, how-to books, information, and tools that are readily available on how to invest. Why don’t they work for most people? Why hire a coaching company? We are often told that what holds most people back is fear, lack or money, and lack of knowledge. One of the things that sets VestorPRO apart, is that we also coach on the kind of mindset a successful real estate investor has. The mindset is a large part of what takes a want-to-be investor to a successful real estate investor! In addition to the systems, tools, and coaching, we will help you work through the fear, and arm you with the education, tools, and resources you need in order to feel confident in taking the steps to becoming a real estate investor. Seldom does a flip go off without a hitch. How will you handle the problems that will arise? Would it be helpful to have a coach that can hold your hand through those hiccups? We’ll teach you the good, the bad, and the ugly, and how to flip houses, without flipping out!
VestorPRO offers a comprehensive real estate investing education. Our Signature Coaching Program arms our students with what they need, combined with one-on-one coaching to catapult a successful real estate investing business.

“80% of Success in Life is Psychology and 20% is Mechanics.” – Anthony Robbins
What is the 80% that will get you through the challenges, obstacles, and difficult times? Once you manage your psychology, what strategies must you adopt to follow through? What does this mean? What goes on in your mind is more important than the mechanics of your business. Why? Even if you know the mechanics that make your business profitable and you know how to do them, you will not produce successful results if you have inner conflicts. Have you had past experiences in which you missed the mark? If these continue to resonate and influence your thinking, no amount of work or expertise will make you a success. Likewise, suppose negative and limiting ideas about success and money you learned in the past continue to hold sway in your thoughts. If this is the case, you will short-circuit yourself, and success will be elusive. This means that your attitudes about success and money are really more important than knowing how to achieve success and acquire wealth. You can have lots of know-how, and still be frustrated and broke!
Here’s the good news. You can create new reference experiences. You can meet successful people and see that many of them are helpful and generous. You can get coaching that promotes a successful mindset. You can read the Success Stories of successful people, many of whom failed before they achieved greatness. The more you let your mind of success reference these ideas and experiences, the more you will head straight for your goal with increasing confidence.
Success leaves clues. The people who produce outstanding results do specific things to create those results. If I precisely duplicated the actions of others, I can reproduce the same quality of results that they had.” – Anthony Robbins
It is in your moments of decision that your future is shaped. Decision is the ultimate power. Decisions shape your future.
People always ask how we got started in this business. I wish I could say we were visionaries and had a grand plan, but the truth is we started out of pure desperation! Remember 2008 when the stock market was crashing and the financial stability of the entire country was in serious trouble? If you recall, it was all of the “sub-prime” real estate lending that caused the crash. Great time to start a Real Estate business, right? Ha! Not exactly.
Amber and I were both going through divorces, running out of money quickly, sleeping on an air mattress (with a slow leak), and had to buy a couch off craigslist from the bad area of town just to have a place to sit in our 2 bedroom condo we shared with my 2 small kids. I was over $80,000 in credit card debt just to add to the pressure! Getting the picture? Not a great time of life for us, on top of the country being in one of the worst financial times in our history. Timing was certainly not ideal, and we did not have a grand plan. We needed to make money … and fast! We decided to go to a local seminar about flipping houses, and then traveled to CT the next weekend to hear a professional investor speak. We bought a course and some forms to get started, and we took off.
We bought our first house in Rotterdam, NY to flip in late 2007. We really had no idea what we were doing, but we did all of the work ourselves, and I am not that handy! We fought, laughed, cried, and wanted to kill each other some days. We were almost out of money and credit of all kinds, and absolutely needed the house we just renovated to sell quickly to get our money back and hopefully make a little profit. After many months, we did sell the house and made a small profit. In 2008, we decided to tackle another house in the same neighborhood in Rotterdam. This time we did all of the work ourselves in 33 days. We worked 18 hour days, 7 days a week. Neighbors brought us meals because they were so happy we were improving their neighborhood. Amber had to sell her car so we had enough money to finish the renovation! She’s a team player for sure! We sold that house in a bidding war, in a time when everyone said Real Estate was the worst place to invest. We sold that home for $2000 over our asking price. We watched a young couple move in with their family and we literally fell in love with making our neighborhood a better place, one house at a time.
As the years passed, we made a lot of mistakes … I mean a lot!! But we learned and grew from all of them. We have flipped hundreds of houses since 2008. We still remember the days of dreaming about buying that one house for the year.
We have hand picked an amazing team to work with. They inspire us everyday to be better in every way. We work hard and play hard. They help take our dream and vision and make them a reality. Without them, we would not be where we are today. We thank them and want them to know how blessed we are to have each of them.
After the first few flips, we started to make a name for ourselves. We quickly realized that “flipping” was sort of a derogatory term at that time. We decided to prove to the masses that you can flip houses and do it with Honesty, Integrity, Character, and Class. We are a family owned business, leading and teaching with those same core values. We love to help people. No matter who comes in contact with us, we want them to have the “Signature Experience” and be able to tell everyone they know about us.
As we grew, we saw the need to do business from somewhere a little more professional than our kitchen table! So in 2014, we decided to practice what we preach, and we purchased the ugliest building on Altamont Avenue in Rotterdam, NY. We renovated it into one of the most beautiful offices in the area. It’s been great to hear the feedback from the town and community about what an incredible transformation it was! One of the best quotes we’ve heard is, “You guys didn’t just renovate a building here, you showed us first hand what Signature Home Buyers is all about!”
Our future is very bright. We are adding additional companies to help everyone who contacts us have the Signature Experience.
Our sister company is a full service Real Estate Brokerage, Signature Premier Realty, for those who have a house to sell that may not meet our buying criteria. We’re also proud to own and run the largest Real Estate Investment group in the Capital Region www.ActionInvestorsNetwork.com
We support many local charities, not only with donations, but by helping them raise money. They are almost all children charities, as helping kids really speaks to our hearts.
We are very excited about the future of our company as we lead the way for real estate investors. Thank you for being here on our site and getting to know us a little better. We hope you enjoyed our story.
