Chris Prefontaine - Real Estate On Your Terms with The Smart Real Estate Coach

In This Episode:

Jim and Chris talk about building wealth and legacy through real estate investing. They also share what it’s like to run everything like a business. 

Chris Prefontaine is a 3-time best-selling author of Real Estate on Your Terms, The New Rules of Real Estate Investing, and Moneeka Sawyer’s Real Estate Investing for Women. He is also the Founder and CEO of and host of The Smart Real Estate Coach Podcast.

Chris has been in real estate for almost 30 years. His experience ranges from constructing new homes in the ‘90s and owning a Realty Executive Franchise, to running his investments (commercial & residential), and coaching clients throughout North America.

After many years of coaching and constantly doing deals himself independently, Chris founded Smart Real Estate Coach in 2014, bringing on his son Nick, daughter Kayla, and son-in-law Zachary as the company began to grow. They purchase 2-5 properties monthly, so they’re in the trenches every single week.

The family team coaches investors on how to properly scale and automate their businesses throughout North America, working together on another 10-15 properties every month — all without using their own cash, credit, or taking out bank loans to buy property.

Having been through several real estate cycles, Chris understands the challenges of this business and helps students navigate the constantly changing real estate waters.
