Having worked in the real estate industry for over two decades, Jim Toner thought he had seen it all. During this time, Jim had transitioned from an ordinary broker dealing in wholesale deals to a national figure giving away debt-free homes to veterans on national TV. However, the reality of the industry would come down on him hard after a celebrated real estate “Guru” swindled him, and his client’s savings, in 2010. This left him financially broken and also tattered his reputation. It even forced him to consider quitting the real estate business altogether.

Picking himself up

Entrepreneur Jim Toner was already giving up on the idea of investing in real estate and started exploring other business ventures when a friend challenged this form of thinking. He argued that by walking away, Jim Toner was only making it easy for the industry cons to thrive, at his expense. His challenge particularly pointed to the fact that most of the self-proclaimed gurus didn’t have a backing to their rags to riches stories and only relied on tabloids they paid to popularize a make-believe narrative.

On the other hand, according to thriftbooks.com, Jim Toner didn’t just have a rags to riches story in the real estate industry but could also prove it. He had only appeared on the news and had some of the most reputable business journals hosted him due to his proven real estate strategies and not out of his deep pockets. After much consideration, he decided to look at his good and bad experiences in the industry as life lessons that ought to be shared with other aspiring real estate entrepreneurs.

Forming the band of rebels

However, his re-entry into the trade would take a more thorough and safer approach to caution him and his team as well as their clients from suffering the same fate. For instance, he would be more market specific to ensure that he only operates in real estate markets with little fake “Guru” and unnecessary government interference. Most importantly, he would only recruit the best local investors in these markets to help advance his programs.

These would be arrived at after thorough vetting to ensure that he only builds a ground team that’s ready to walk the mile with his clients. Jim Toner and his team have since started operations and refer to themselves as “The Band of Rebels” bent on setting positive trends for others to follow in this murky industry.
