If you’re on the fence about whether to attend a traditional licensing program at a real estate school, or whether you should consider this apprenticeship program, get off the fence. We always encourage Pick My Brain apprentices to do both, simply because becoming a licensed real estate agent provides you with greater access to potential deals.
If your goal is to do anything other than find a job as a real estate agent working for a real estate broker, you are going to need more training than the typical 40-hour agent licensing program delivers.
Real estate schools teach you the state laws and best practices for buying and selling properties. After all, that’s what real estate agents do.
The Pick My Brain Real Estate Apprenticeship Program wil prepare you for the myriad things you will face as a real estate entrepreneur.
Yes, you will learn the foundational principles of real estate (like the laws and best practices for buying and selling properties). You will also learn how to:

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN A SELLER IS MOTIVATED? ONE OF TOYIN'S REAL ESTATE STUDENTS LISTENS IN AS TOYIN CONDUCTS A CALL WITH A LESS-THAN-MOTIVATED SELLER
This is one of those teachable moments. Sometimes it's hard to know the characteristics of a motivated seller without having a repertoire of case studies to recall.
In this video, Toyin's student, Sylvia, has found a potential deal. Or is it? Listen to this short conversation between Toyin and the seller of an Arizona property. Then for fun, go to Zillow yourself and check the current value of the property (and maybe the comps in the area) and compare it with the seller's asking price.
A Message from Toyin Dawodu, Creator of the Pick My Brain Real Estate Apprenticeship Program
Dear Fellow Real Estate Entrepreneur,
In the last 15 years, I have bought and sold more than 450 properties with contract values totaling around $50 million. I think my results qualify as business success to most people, but that wasn't always the case.
When I started out, I was curious and motivated, but I didn't have the faintest idea where to start. In those early days, I bought thousands of dollars in real estate training, investing in "proven system" after "proven system". I attended my fair share of seminars.
At the end of it all, I had a lot of head knowledge, but no practical knowledge. No strategy and no one to answer my growing list of questions. I bumbled around in the dark trying to figure out the real estate business for almost 10 years!
It wasn't until I found someone who could take me by the hand and show me how the business works that I was finally able to succeed in this business.
Your Next 90 Days in Real Estate
It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve been involved in deals. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to this business or have a few years under your belt.
I created the Pick My Brain Real Estate Apprenticeship Program to help you mature and get to profit faster in the real estate business. I don't want you to spend two, or five, or ten years trying to figure it out on your own, like I did. So I designed this apprenticeship program to shorten your learning curve.
The biggest challenge you face as a new real estate entrepreneur is making 100% avoidable rookie mistakes that cost you time, money, and opportunities.
Not to mention the number these mistakes do on your confidence.
As one of my students, you will receive 8 weeks of structured training that will teach you everything you need to know about becoming a real estate entrepreneur. After that, it’s time for you to go out in the field for another 5 weeks with one-on-one guidance from me. I am going to help you find, structure, and close your first real estate deal.
What’s the value of having access to my experience, expertise, and input to answer your questions and walk you through the tough spots?
I’m going to save you time, money and tons of frustration. You don’t have the experience yet to see trouble ahead, or read the warning signs of a potentially costly deal. I do. And I am going to help you “see around the next corner” as they say. That’s the value of having someone like me available to answer your questions. In the real estate business, having access to experiential wisdom is better than just having information.
ACCESS IS BETTER THAN INFORMATION
This real estate apprenticeship program is intensive, interactive, and hands-on. It's not for everyone, and not everyone who applies will be accepted into the program.
I'm not selling you a 40-hour lecture based on a text book someone wrote to help you pass an exam. I am presenting you with an opportunity to learn a skill that will make you, your children and your children’s children almost impervious to market troubles.

I wish you the best in all your endeavors. - Amazing Toyin
