Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

023: How to Buy Real Estate on Your Terms with Chris Prefontaine


Don’t just get paid on a deal once. By putting the right system in place, you can actually get money on a deal now, then continue to get paid monthly, and ultimately, cash it out down the road as you’re building your wealth. That’s exactly what Chris Prefontaine has developed – a system that gives you three paydays per deal, instead of just one.


Chris is the Founder and CEO of Smart Real Estate Coach and host of the Smart Real Estate Coach Podcast. Having been in real estate for over 30 years, Chris transitioned from being a broker to a creative real estate investor. He built the 3 Paydays out of frustration, and he vowed to never get paid just once on a deal anymore. Having transitioned from being a broker to a creative real estate investor, Chris is also the best-selling author of Real Estate on Your Terms and The New Rules of Real Estate Investing.

  • The difference in today’s real estate market from when he started

  • Subject 2 vs. seller financing
