So who is John Schaub?

John Schaub has been investing in Real Estate for well over 35 years and has gone through many up and down cycles during that time. He has prospered during three recessions, four tax law changes and interest rates ranging from 6-16%. His content-rich, real world education has become the standard of excellence by which others are often judged. His 2005 best-selling book, Building Wealth One House at a Time has helped more than 100,000 real estate enthusiasts on their way to successful investing.

Some of the key topics John teaches include:

  • Recognizing opportunities
  • Constructing good deals
  • Creating cash flow today and growth for tomorrow 
  • Strategies to survive and prosper in an ever-changing Real Estate world
  • Finding, constructing and keeping safe affordable financing
  • Balance leverage and risk
  • Increasing your cash flow today by creating spreads


BUT HE DOESN’T JUST TEACH. John is in the trenches every day generating tremendous profits because he has adapted his negotiating, buying and selling strategies to this evolving market. Real time strategies and techniques. He understands how to solve problems associated with a property or a seller’s situation and work the angles…. Don’t Miss this opportunity to learn from his expertise, wisdom, and insight.



John Schaub has prospered during three recessions, four tax law changes and interest rates ranging from 6-16% in his 35+ years as a real estate investor. His 2005 best-selling book, Building Wealth One House at a Time, assisted more than 100,000 real estate enthusiasts on their way to successful invest­ing. His 2007 book, Building Wealth in a Changing Real Estate Market, is available online and in bookstores.

John recommends buying better, well-located houses rather than cheaper houses and other management-intensive properties. Better houses are more profitable and far less trouble. He advocates paying off debt, owning properties free and clear, and renting only to long term, high quality tenants.

John buys, sells and manages his own properties, and enjoys providing quality housing at fair prices for working families in his community. He teaches one Building Wealth One House at a Time seminar each year where students learn how to identify the best investment property in their town, how to buy it at below-market prices, and how to negotiate terms that guarantee a profit.

John also invests his time helping those who cannot afford to buy a home through conventional sources through his work with Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller Center for Housing. John has served for more than 20 years on the board of Sarasota Habitat, 7 years on Habitat’s International Board and currently serves as the chair of the  board of the Fuller Center for Housing.

John, a Florida native, is a proud graduate of the University of Florida, where he earned his B.A. from the College of Business Administration in 1970. He is an accomplished boat captain (power and sail), fisherman, skier (snow and water) and an instrument-rated pilot. John loves to travel, especially with his wife Valerie and their children.

“Targeted Local Marketing Made Easy”


****** Please join us 5:30 – 6:30 Networking Hour Bonus: ******

Bring your laptop and we’ll walk you through…

  • Identifying your geo-target market
  • Creating your first criteria based list
  • Setting up a direct mail campaign

Marketing and advertising today is complex, confusing, and often tilted against the very small local business.

But you have access to a “secret weapon”: Public records.

Mix some good marketing habits with a little technology and a lot of data, and you can grow amidst a flat and increasingly competitive real estate market.

FARMing Public Records to Grow in a Flat Real Estate Market Public data has become a critical advantage for big business when it comes to learning about customers. With it, they can better develop, market, and sell everything from shoelaces to allergy medications, as well as rapidly out-compete local business in the process.

But big business doesn’t own public data. Organizations at every level, including Real Estate Investors – agents, are just as capable of unlocking the boundless market intelligence it provides.
When deftly wielded, public data becomes a powerful catalyst of market wisdom, able to turn mid-level investors – agents into top producers. With the right data and proper tools, you can own your market. Let us show you how to do it.

Join PropertyRadar CMO David LaPlante and Director of Customer Success Kim Bennett for insights, perspective, and a practical how-to guide to leverage public records data to identify and find deals within your market.
