Financial Independence Seekers

Real Estate Start School is for those who want to use real estate to achieve financial independence but don't know the steps to get started (or restarted) with their next property.

You understand the power of real estate investing. You like the control it gives you to build wealth, generate income, and eventually make working for money optional. But real estate investing also has a lot of moving parts. Making progress can sometimes feel overwhelming (even if you bought real estate in the past).

Real Estate Start School is both the guide AND the supportive community you need to get unstuck, become confident, and move forward. It's designed for aspiring landlords, house hackers, flippers, or wholesalers. And it can help whether you're brand new or just getting back into the game.


Below are testimonials about Real Estate Start School and Chad's ability to help investors get started with real estate investing.

"Joining Real Estate Start School is one of the best decisions. Coach Carson made the classes simple and doable; so I was able to complete a chapter a week. Action items and goals were individually tailored.

Coach Carson is knowledgeable, a great listener and passionate about helping each student to be successful. Hands down, whether new at real estate or you want to step up your business, you'll want in on his coaching.

After my first year, I flipped one house, added a rental to my portfolio and closed a wholesale deal.

"This is a no-brainer just to buy the course ... because I don’t think I would’ve gotten started and done the action items without getting involved in Real Estate Start School. I would’ve just still been reading and wondering."

"I was like 'ok, yeah - this is a no brainer just to buy the course.' I really like the way Chad teaches, really down to earth. He makes real estate investing really approachable and possible. Because I don’t think I would’ve gotten started and done the action items without getting involved in Real Estate Start School. I would’ve just still been reading and wondering.

First, from like a psychological perspective, I liked how right from the start Chad was like ‘don’t worry about being perfect, just pick a number, pick a day, and just do it. That really set the tone for the entire course. A lot of what’s stopping me - and I’m sure a lot of people - is the need to be perfect. It cripples you and paralyzes you.

And then I really liked figuring out my why - I want to have income flowing while I’m traveling and just enjoying myself. It’s my big why.

And I also liked picking my financial independence goal … Chad said to just pick a number, it could change. That gave me a huge sigh of relief. I thought I had to be perfect and figure it out with a ton of unnecessary math. So, I just picked a number - $60,000/year - and most of it would be passive income.

And just looking at properties and evaluating them and seeing if they were a deal was huge for me. I don’t think I would’ve done that myself. I liked the simple math - the cash on cash return, net income after financing. It’s cool … when I first started doing it, it took me forever because I wanted to be good at it and I wanted to be right. But at this point not even 2 weeks after doing it a little bit every day, I’m really fast at it. It’s just gotten a lot faster and a little more intuitive. So, that’s cool. It’s really rewarding to see that.

If you’re like me and you were just wondering about real estate investing and if there was a perfect time, there is no perfect time, really. Just do it now.

The way Chad coaches you, he takes you step-by-step. You have an action item after each lesson. And that’s why I’ve been taking it really slowly - I really want to take the time to do the action item, because every time I do it I feel like I’m taking a huge leap forward and building a foundation that’s going to be great for years to come.

"He is the ONLY person Sean and I would recommend to someone if they are just getting started in real estate"

"My husband and I decided in 2010 that we wanted to be real estate investors. We quickly realized that there were a lot of different directions to go and we needed a lot of help to begin this journey. My husband, Sean, knew Chad through one of the investment groups and trusted him immediately so we sought him out to be our mentor. It was the best decision that we could have possibly made.

The great thing about working with Chad is that he helps you understand your strengths and weaknesses so that you can come up with a plan that makes sense for your personal goals. Unfortunately, we have seen a lot of friends jump from strategy to strategy but Chad gave us clarity to understand what we wanted so that we could reverse engineer the process.

Chad has been everything you could ask for in a mentor and it has grown into a terrific friendship as well. You can't ask for anything more than for someone to educate you on the mechanics of investing and to also help you cultivate a plan that makes sense for your life. We have far exceeded our goals to this point and it is largely due to having fantastic resources like Chad. He is the ONLY person Sean and I would recommend to someone if they are just getting started in real estate or if they are looking to take their business to the next level.


- Heather and Sean Mckay, Charlotte, NC

"He is truly an expert on real estate investing."

"I've known Chad for several years. He is truly an expert on real estate investing. Chad has always been willing to share his knowledge and advice on any question I had, or to help me evaluate a potential deal.

- John and Margaret Atwood, Greenville, SC

"To sum up Chad in 4 words- Character, Knowledge, Accomplished, and Intelligent."

"I have known Chad Carson as a fellow Investor and in my capacity as Director of Education for the Metrolina Real Estate Investor's Association in Charlottte, NC since 2008.

I cannot fail to stand in awe of Chad's accomplishments and consistency as a real estate investor. Our organization has had him in to teach on various subjects, and he has invariably covered the subject thoroughly, entertainingly, and at a level incredibly appropriate to the subject audience.

As a coach and mentor, that is where Chad really shines- he can take an Investor making $75K per year and help him get his business to the next level of well over $6 figures, but can just as easily adapt his level of instruction to help a brand new Investor do his or her very first deal without overawing, overloading, or burdening them with information that is at that level superfluous. You will find this quality well-nigh nonexistent among those who coach other investors. To sum up Chad in 4 words- Character, Knowledge, Accomplished, and Intelligent.

- Lou Gimbutis, Charlotte, NC


Don't get stuck in analysis paralysis or being a perennial student. Instead, start moving forward towards your next real estate deal. Taking action is your best teacher, and that's exactly what Real Estate Start School will help you do.

Frequently Asked Questions

All calls are recorded for later listening. The calls are usually on Thursday, and we rotate back and forth between early evening Eastern Time and Pacific Time. The call usually starts with a topic for 10-15 minutes, and the rest of the time (up to 1.5 hours) is 100% your questions and discussions.
Do I need a lot of cash to get started in real estate investing?
It depends. But your start will certainly be easier if you've saved up cash for down payments and other upfront expenses. With that said, Chad began real estate investing with $1,000. This course will teach you strategies if you have a lot of funds or if you don't.
Will this real estate information work in high-priced markets? What about outside of the U.S.?
High-priced markets have their challenges and benefits. A key lesson in the course will address evaluating whether your market is good for investing or whether you should invest out of town. The general investing and business principles will work in any location. But real estate laws are very local, so you'll certainly need to have local expert advice before moving forward.
