Today we’d like to introduce you to Sabrina Franco.
Sabrina, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
LA Property Partners was born out of the desire to create more of what cannot be bought, TIME. Time to spend with our daughter. We knew that being part of the corporate world was not going to give us the chance to spend the time we wanted, doing the things we wanted with our daughter and with the people we love.
Carlos Franco, my husband has over 15 years of construction knowledge. I started in the banking and real estate industry since 2000. We saw everything that happened in the real estate industry. We decided to put our knowledge in those fields to work. That is how our company was born back in 2016, by making a decision.
We specialize in the acquisition of below market value properties in emerging markets. We have built many relationships with banks, realtors, lenders and other investors. Those relationships give us access to the great deals first. Our philosophy is simple. If the property is not significantly below market value, we simply don’t buy it.
Our goal is as transparent and simple as possible. First we aspire to be of service to people. We create passive income for our investors. Their money is secured by real estate. Second, we love to beautify our communities by fixing and flipping houses. We love converting those houses to homes so that the families who buy them, build lasting memories with the ones they love most. Lastly, we work on our own time. That gives us the flexibility to spend more time with our precious daughter doing whatever it is that we love.
Has it been a smooth road?
There is zero glamour when choosing the entrepreneurship road. At least, not at the beginning. The forming years come with a lot of sacrifices, early mornings, late nights, many adversities, more hard days than good days but if you are whiling to go out of your comfort zone, to persevere, be patient and work very hard and smart, then the advantages are awesome. Some of the struggles we faced where the ones that 99% of the people out there are not willing to make.
We decided to live under our means. We gave up our own space and moved in with family members. We left our comfort zone and moved 3000 miles away to grow our business. The point is, we have done not whatever has been possible for us. We have done whatever it takes to make it happen.
Having mentors is absolutely necessary. Walking the path of success next to the ones who have done it before is an easier way to walk. When you stop learning you stop growing. We give credit to our mentors. JT Foxx serial entrepreneur is key to our success. He introduced us to his mentors. Mr. Hugh Hilton From the Hilton family, Mr. George Ross Ex Senior Counsel of the Trump organization, Mr. Nido Qubein Business man and motivational speaker, among other awesome people. Every day there is something new to learn. If you go through life expecting to learn something, you will.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with LA Property Partners – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
At LA Property Partners we take pride in the work we do. What sets us apart is the relationships we have. We understand that people don’t invest in deals nor on ideas. People invest in people. Having said that, our relationships have been key to our success. Our investors trust us with their hard earn money. As a result, we make sure their money is allocated to great investment properties that we buy due to having awesome realtors, investors, and acquaintances. Those properties get fixed and put back on the market to sell or rent, depending on the strategy used for that house. We enjoy bringing the houses to the best possible look and enjoy beautifying them so that the family who will live in it will enjoy for decades. It is always important to go the extra mile in anything you do. Not just in business but anything in life. People are very smart. I believe we all have a 6th sense. If people sense that their best interest is in your mind, then doors open for you. Our goal is to be of service to people, that is what living a life of significance means to us.
Because of our relationships, we have been able to share stages with A-list celebrities with over 2000 entrepreneurs. We want to motivate, inspire and help in any possible way. Joint ventures, partnerships or opportunities come up when you are willing to put your heart in what you do.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
We love LA. We like everything about the cities we invest in. As of now, we invest in 4 states. There are opportunities everywhere. If you don’t see those opportunities, then you have to get up and go create them. #lapropertypartners.
