Armed with only $3,000, gut-wrenching fear, and absolutely no real estate experience… Mark bought his first few parcels of raw land in 2001.
Today Mark is the owner of Frontier Properties, a very reputable and successful land investing company, and has been buying and selling land full time since 2001. By focusing on working smart, not hard, he has completed over 5,000 land deals with an average ROI of over 300% on cash flips, and over 1,000% on the deals he sells with financing terms.
Prior to his land investing success, Mark had a high-stress, soulless corporate job, and felt trapped in a state of solo-economic-dependency (i.e. his income stopped as soon as he stopped working).
Escaping solo-economic dependency changed Mark’s life in so many positive ways that he decided to teach, coach and mentor others to help them achieve their financial goals.
Even though Mark invests a lot of his time helping others, he stays actively involved in running his land investing business, and is dedicated to teaching the most current and relevant “real world” land investing methods to his students.
After 10 years of working in the financial industry managing the accounting for high-risk/high-return investment funds, Brian discovered Mark Podolsky in 2013.
He found Mark’s low-risk/high-return land investing business model and sincere teaching style so compelling that in 2014 he left the corporate world behind and aligned with Mark to support the Land Geek mission full time.
Brian is "the guy behind the guy" working in the background to drive growth of the Land Geek Community and continuously improve the student experience. His primary geeky super powers are copywriting and automated marketing systems.
Danielle is the friendly voice you’ll hear on the phone, and she’s always excited to help students as they begin their land investing adventures.
She started working with the Land Geek Team part-time in early 2015, and after speaking with many successful students, she quickly realized that Mark is the real deal.
Danielle jumped at the opportunity to become more involved with the Land Geek mission, and now she handles many of the media and PR functions as well as following up with students to make sure they’re on track. Most importantly, she helps Mark juggle his crazy schedule!
Danielle also recently started following Mark’s methods to invest in land herself.
