The Six Rules of Success

At LEAN estates, we live and breathe by these six principles. The founder of LEAN estates has been living by these same rules for over a decade now with noted SUCCESS. During his real estate journey, engineering career, and number of roles, he has applied these same rules to become number one and a respected leader.

trust yourself

LEAN estates started from humble beginnings without handouts or having capital available. We knew we wanted to change our lives for the better and asked ourselves, how can we? We believed in ourselves that real estate was the answer. 


Something burned inside me. I wanted to be different; I was determined to be unique. I was driven to think big and to dream big.
— arnold schwarzenegger

ignore the naysayers

On our quest to building our team and acquiring funds, we always ran into other investors and realtors that did not believe in LEAN estates. We were judged by our empty portfolio and again, "you need to graduate from single-family first." That did not stop us! We ignored the "haters" and kept moving forward towards success with our team who believed in a common dream. 


How many times have you heard that you can’t do this and you can’t do that and it’s never been done before? I love it when someone says that no one has ever done this before, because then when I do it that means that I’m the first one that has done it.
— Arnold Schwarzenegger

break some rules

As LEAN estates started to be known by local investors, we were constantly told that we had to graduate from single-family homes before moving on to multi-family properties. We never owned real estate and had no desire to start with single-family homes, and once we landed our first deal, we broke the rules by not starting with single-family and went straight to multi-family with success.  

Break the rules, not the law, but break the rules. It is impossible to be a maverick or a true original if you’re too well behaved and don’t want to break the rules. You have to think outside the box.
— arnold schwarzenegger

work like hell

At the beginning of our long journey, the founder of LEAN estates had a full-time engineering career as a Manufacturing Engineer leading a whole department to bring the C-Series multi-billion dollar program afloat from a 1-year delayed schedule. He averaged a 10 hour work day with a typical 14 hour day every 2 - 3 weeks. While at the same time pursuing a LEAN Six Sigma Green and Yellow Belt certification, building his real estate knowledge and ultimately creating LEAN estates from scratch. He knew he was in competition with full-time investors and while many other competitors had fun late nights, not the founder of LEAN estates who was determined to win!


But when you’re out there partying, horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is getting smarter and someone is winning. Just remember, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.
— arnold schwarzenegger

don't be afraid to fail

Although real estate at the time was a brand new subject, LEAN estates was determined, was hungry to succeed at all cost. For a whole year, the father of LEAN estates averaged 5 - 7 hours of sleep per night to acquire as much knowledge, to network with other key players in the industry and worked on developing systems used to meet our goal of success.  We knew there were significant risks, but LEAN estates was not afraid to fail and put it all on the line to win. 

So you can’t always win, but don’t be afraid of making decisions. You can’t be paralyzed by fear of failure or you will never push yourself. You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision and you know that it is the right thing to do, and success will come.
— arnold schwarzenegger

give something back

We never fail to remember where our roots originated and recollect our humble beginnings. Although the exciting rush and sensation of closing another deal is exhilarating, the sheer experience of helping others in finding a new home, providing the basic necessities or giving a free consultation to our investors is far more exciting then another closing. For this reason and many others, we have volunteered with many non-profit organizations to advocate education, support against cancer, entrepreneurship and have donated to a number of charities.


And let me tell you something, reaching out and helping people will bring you more satisfaction than anything else you have ever done.
