When Dan Brault found out about a 19th-century luxury house, he immediately fell in love with it. Little did he know at the time that it would turn into his worst nightmare.

About Dan Brault

Dan Brault got into real estate in 2015 while working full-time. He started acquiring some rental properties and flipping some houses on the side. After a year, he decided to leave his safe and secure 6-figure job to go full-time in real estate. 

In 2018, after one failed new business he found himself over $400,000 in debt and on the edge of bankruptcy. Consequently, he decided to focus 100% on wholesaling, and after 6 months Dan was able to generate over $500,000 in wholesale fees. It is now his drive and passion to help people avoid the mistakes he made and create massive change in their lives.

About Eric Martel

Eric purchased his first apartment building at just 18 years of age. After graduation, in his position as an actuary, he was dismayed to see hundreds of company pension plans being rolled over into 401(k)s shifting the retirement risk to employees. This made Eric reconsider traditional beliefs about retirement saving and question his role as an actuary so he joined the lucrative technology industry.

A few years later, Eric lost a fortune during the dot-com crash of 2001. Then, he came back to real estate investing and formed MartelTurnkey . After just four years of rapid success, he was able to retire from his day job. Today, Eric wants to share what he has learned through his own experience so that we don't make the same mistakes he did.
