Hustling 101 The Altman Brothers
“I’m all about having mentors in your life. Successful people who push you and are positive to be around. Because there’s a lot of haters out there.” – Matt Altman
Real estate is the ultimate meritocracy.
The agent who sees the most properties and talks to the most people is likely to be the one making the most money. Most of the industries we work in share this undeniable truth, but technology has redefined this up-and-close hustle to be more about SEO and social media marketing.
On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by The Altman Brothers. In 2008, after the market collapsed, they moved out of their multi-million dollar mansion into two-bedroom apartment. Now, in the past 5 years, they’ve sold over $2 billion in property. How they achieved their success was through a unique type of hustling that involved walking the hills of Hollywood and talking to the people standing in line at Starbucks. Tune in to learn their tricks and take your hustling mindset to the next level!

“I love cold-calling because people hang up on me and I move onto the next one. It fuels the fire inside because you want to make that sale.” – Josh Altman
