“For 30 years I have known Paul Kelley as one of the most creative real estate deal makers in the business. Paul is one of the few people that truly understands that much more important than the real estate is the circumstance of ownership I remember many years ago that Paul told me that he never made a deal with a piece of real estate; it was always, and always will be, the ownership that creates opportunity.”
“Paul closes ‘real estate deals’ by carefully listening to the seller, understanding what their true motivation is, and finding creative ways to help them solve their problems. Paul is a professional problem solver first, a real estate practitioner second, and a true credit to the creative real estaet industry.”
- William Lykken,

“I have known Paul Kelley since 1978 and this book is one
every real estate professional or investor should read. Paul is
one of the most creative people in the business. I have learned
many ideas that help my clients or me in investing in real estate.
Paul thinks outside the box when need be and he
believes in win-win deals. His ability to figure a way to meet
the needs of both the other party and himself is incredible. His
vast knowledge of how money works and the aspects of real
estate is amazing.
There are tons of agents and investors who can sell a property
using the buyer’s down payment and the balance with a new mortgage.
How many can put a deal together when you can’t use a bank, when
you only have equity and no cash, when one party needs cash?
Paul can figure a path to cash for the party needing it. Paul
is the guy who says ‘Why not?’ when everyone is throwing up their
hands saying, ‘It can’t be done.’ As you read these experiences
he has had you will say, ‘Oh, if I had read this book before I saw
this or that deal, I would have been able to make money then.’
There are many agents and brokers who are no longer in the
business because they never saw nor thought of some of these ideas
Paul presents in this book. I own THE REAL ESTATE SCHOOL and
teach courses that incorporate many of Paul’s ideas and experiences.
In this book, Paul lets you know what works because he has done
it. These are not just stories. They are facts. Paul has done what
he says. These are methods you can use because they work. I
want to thank Paul for finally sharing these experiences with us.”

“After 44 years and a half billion dollars of transactions through my real estate business, Paul is one of the most creative real estate operatives I have worked with”

Paul Kelley has one of the most creative and innovative real estate
minds in the country. If knowledge is power, Paul is suppercharged
with power from knowledge that can only come from experience.
Many people “talk” about doing real estate deals but
Paul is a “doer” of real estate deals. He has done many of them.
Paul is a master of putting transactions together that
most people would simply walk away from. He sees problems
and then thinks of solutions to solve them. You will often
hear him say, “there is more than one way to skin a cat.”
Listening to Paul will help you benefit from his
experience and profit while others stand by and scratch
their heads wondering how you build your fortune!
