Nick Vertucci is the founder of Nick Vertucci’s Real Estate Academy — NVREA. If you wanted a couple of lines from a song to describe Nick Vertucci’s life, you’d be hard pressed to do better than these two lines from Frank Sinatra’s rendition of That’s Life.
Each time I find myself flat on my face I pick myself up and get back in the race.
Nick’s childhood was anything but wealthy, but that wasn’t a problem — kids are tough. Then he lost his father at only ten years old. That was a problem. But soon after turning 18, Nick seized the bit and took control of his destiny. He founded a thriving business selling computer accessories. But then came the dot-com economic crash of the early 2000’s. Nick nearly lost everything. But like the lyric above, Nick Vertucci did indeed pick himself back up, and he did get back in the race.
By 2004 Nick had taken a real estate training course and was divesting himself of his struggling, debt-laden retail technology business, and embracing life as a real estate investor. In the beginning, he literally knocked on doors as he sought out suitable residential properties to flip. He soon began offering others the chance to invest in the properties he was buying, rehabbing, and ultimately flipping. Many of these investors found Nick through his radio show “The Real Estate Investing Hour.”
Things were booming, and Nick wanted to share his knowledge and investment opportunities with others. That was the impetus that drove him to create the Nick Vertucci Real Estate School (NVREA).
Nick Vertucci teaches four simple steps to successful real estate investing.
- See the opportunity.
- Believe it. Many people never acknowledge that they don’t sincerely believe in their proposed course of action.
- Map it. You’ve got to have a plan
- Execute it. Yeah, this is the hard one. You can stand on the diving board and dream about the beautiful swan dive you see in your mind’s eye, but ultimately… you going to have to jump.
