The Nick Chaconas Experience

A Journey of Wealth & Well-Being

From "aha" to "oh crap ," I'm sharing everything on my journey as an investor.

My name is Nick Chaconas. Just an ordinary guy who decided I wanted something more.

"My family deserves better. I'm capable of so much more. I'm tired of living a mediocre life as I trade time for money."

That's how it all started. I was sick and tired of the life I was living, with all the wrong dialogue playing on repeat in my head.

In early 2021 I committed to leave the life of "just being a realtor" behind and become a real estate investor .. and to document the journey from brand new real estate investor to having consistent $20,000+ months!

Beyond Deals: Lessons from ACS and PARTNER

"Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself." - Edmund Lee

Lee nails the essence of my journey with the Asset Control Specialist (ACS) and PARTNER investing groups. The path to real estate investing is not just about properties and profits; it's fundamentally about the people you align with – those who not only share your vision but also challenge and elevate you.

When I first joined ACS, we may have appeared to be a ragtag group of 15 random investors strewn around the country.

Now, 150 PARTNERS strong, we are a group of investors committed to investing, flipping, and wholesaling real estate within 30 days.

We aren’t just a collective of investors; we are a powerhouse of action-takers and visionaries. Every day, we pushed boundaries, shared insights, and supported each other’s growth. It was a living testament to Peter Drucker's words, "Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work."

The essence of our success lay in our shared belief in action over intention. We understand that the real value in our journey is not just in the transactions we do, but in the relationships we build and the knowledge we share.

This is where the PARTNER group plays a crucial role. As PARTNER grows, so do our expectations and achievements.

What started as a quest for financial gain has evolved into a journey of collective empowerment and personal development.

This journey continues to teach me valuable lessons about the power of strategic partnerships in business. In real estate investing, it's crucial to:

1. Choose Your Circle Wisely: The people you surround yourself with can elevate you to new heights or hold you back. In groups like ACS and PARTNER, I found individuals who were not just investors but mentors, friends, and catalysts for growth.

2. Embrace Collective Wisdom: Every member brings unique experiences and insights. Embracing this diversity of thought leads to better decisions and innovative solutions.

3. Action Over Intention: Real progress is measured in actions taken, not just plans made. A group that acts together achieves together. During our ACS call this afternoon:

a. Sloper told us about a “fire house” he’s finished renovating and expecting a 6-figure profit.

b. Kelly told us about a home she just purchased that involved 2 probate estate.

c. Michael told us about a property he’s going to acquire for $400,000, add 2 ADU’s to the rear of the property, convert the land into condos and sell the 3 units for $1.2M » Netting him about $400,00 in profits

d. etc, etc, etc. We share these types of deals on a daily basis. It’s like taking a 300 level graduate school class in real estate investing. There is nothing like it around.

4. Grow Beyond Business: True success is holistic. It encompasses not just financial gains but personal growth, mental fortitude, and meaningful relationships.

Your network in real estate investing is your net worth. The ACS and PARTNER groups exemplify how the right partnerships can transform not just your business but your entire approach to life. So, choose your circle wisely, and watch as they help you unlock levels of success you never thought possible.

Asset Control Specialist. ( ACS Group ) This is the building blocks (think like a 101 course in college, not exactly for beginners, but broken down into digestible content) that launched me into my investing business. It has daily content and a weekly live call on Fridays at Noon.

PARTNER .. If ASC is Investing 101 ... PARTNER is graduate level education in investing. This has all the content, daily live Zoom calls with the entire Partner team, and the software we use to manage the lead and deal flow.

If you have questions about either, I’m happy to chat.
