Albert Preciado. Why Humans Hold the Most Value Over ANYTHING. Episode 510 with The Real Brad Lea (TRBL)
Albert Preciado is the Founder and CEO of The Mortgage Guys, Ambiance Realty, and Driven Enterprises. Albert is also a Real Estate Investor. In 2013 Albert bought a 3-unit property, and like everything else Albert does, he went all in and acquired as many multi-units as possible. This would end up being a Life Changer. Albert’s original company was The Mortgage Guy, and after mentorship sessions, the company’s name changed to The Mortgage Guys. This was another Life Changer. Albert has been in the mortgage industry since 2005; he is a licensed Broker and Mortgage Originator. Albert went through the toughest times of his life in 2008 when we had a market recession and Mortgage Meltdown but decided to weather the storm and not quit the industry he believed in. The reason why Albert started a mortgage company was because of the pain endured by his parents and himself when they got turned down for a mortgage time after time in the early 90s. Albert committed to starting a Mortgage Company from scratch and creating a company that will help humble families make their American Dream a reality. Albert’s life wasn’t always perfect, and his mid-20s were full of costly mistakes that could have cost him his life.
In this episode, Brad and Albert discuss his humble beginnings with his wife, Syl. From there, they get into their story deeper and how their business is becoming an empire. They also discuss real ways to improve your business and life.
