We’ve each had front seats to watching friends, colleagues and family members struggle to sell their homes or simply lose their home to a short sale or foreclosure when there were other alternatives they weren’t made aware of. Our mission is to ensure that every seller we come in contact with understands their options and has the right to choose what’s best for them. We’re here to shout from the rooftops that here is a BETTER alternative to the damage and years of consequences you’re straddled with if you get frustrated and just walk away.
Buyers don’t have to waste their money on high rents anymore. We allow qualified buyers to buy our homes and we provide the financing! No more piles of paperwork only to get denied for a home loan. We’re dedicated to helping keep the American Dream alive.
And now that you’ve learned a little bit about our company and our passion for helping others…
Here’s a little more ‘about us’ from a professional & personal viewpoint:
Lawyer, Real Estate Investor, Best-Selling Author, and Educator, Mark Torok is a principal of the Torok Law Firm P.C., a firm founded to represent real estate investors for real estate, asset protection, securities and estate planning.
Mark uses his legal expertise combined with his real estate knowledge to guide investors through the world of owner finance and subject-to transactions, and real estate investments, providing classes and training products to cover each topic. He is a best selling author of Defend and Protect, published by Celebrity Press in 2012, and he has appeared on NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox affiliates as a ‘Master of Real Estate Investing.’
He represents some of the largest investors throughout the United States. He is an active real estate investor and currently owns close to 800 units of various types of real estate in and around Texas.
Mark is an active speaker throughout the United States and has presented seminars, boot camps and talks on real estate, asset protection and federal and state laws, including subject –to, mortgage assignment, lease options, contract for deed, the S.A.F.E Act, the MARS Act, Dodd-Frank, Garn-St. Germain, and the myths and truths about other gurus’ programs.
Mark has had a varied and extensive legal career of almost 30 years, including stints as an administrative law judge in Oregon and Pennsylvania, representing a national insurance trade association for legislative and regulatory affairs for 6 states, where he was instrumental in the design and passage of major legislation, and as an officer and counsel to three major insurance companies.
He is admitted to practice law before the courts of Texas and holds now-inactive Washington State and Pennsylvania State admissions to practice law, a real estate salesperson license, an escrow agent’s license and works closely with Providence Title to provide superior title services to his clients. He and his firm are also approved to teach continuing education courses for the Texas Real Estate Commission and his course for Continuing education credit for real estate agents, “Innovative Financing- Selling “Unsellable” Houses” has been approved for continuing education credit by the state.
His next book, ‘The Book on Legal Subject-to Real Estate Investing” will be available on Amazon.com and other retailers in the summer.
When he’s not working, Mark likes to fish, hunt and spend time at his house on Oso Bay in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The first thing you need to know about us is “fun”… I mean after all, what is the point of doing anything in life if you don’t enjoy the ride?
Working in the world of real estate in order to help others successfully (and easily) buy and sell homes is just one of the ways we like to have FUN!!
We’ve been blessed to be featured on expert panels across the United States talking about real estate and the numerous options that we can provide sellers who need a solution to selling their home or to buyers having trouble obtaining a loan. We work, train and partner with investors nationwide who want to learn to do the same and in 2010, we authored our first book: The Home Buying Success Formula, No Banks Needed.
However, it was not until we met Mark Torok that we found a true friend and partner that gave our business immense value. As real estate laws constantly change, Mark has made it his mission to study and understand every new change, regulation and law that gets passed so that we remain the premier trusted authority in the industry.
It’s hard enough to try and get educated about the options you have when trying to buy or sell a home, but to have to worry about whether or not what you’re doing is legal is too much to bear. We find that partnering with an expert and attorney give us just as much peace of mind as it does you!
On a more personal note, Flip and I met while working on cruise ships where we both played in the big band. We literally saw the world while living on majestic cruise liners and meeting some of the craziest characters you can imagine.
It was great, but it couldn’t last forever. We got married and moved to Round Rock, Texas in 2004. We now have 3 wonderful kids…I mean, dogs: Sasha & Tucker (our two goldens) and our little bulldog Spartacus(aka SPARTY!). Yes, for all of you Michigan State fans – Flip named the little guy after his Alma Mater’s mascot! Go Green!
