Posted by Chris Clothier on Sun, Apr 30, 2017

Some real estate investors find themselves feeling nervous at the idea of buying a piece of property that they’ve never seen before.  The Clothier family had to get over this same fear in the early 2000's when several family members were building portfolios sight unseen.  

Kent Clothier, Sr. the CEO of Memphis Invest was the out-of-town real estate investors' early advocate by recognizing the risks investors would have and building a team and systems to address those risks.  Investors' minds after-all and the horror stories of buying out-of-state were the biggest hurdle to work at over-coming.

Squash 5 Major Real Estate Negotiating Anxieties

Posted by Chris Clothier on Tue, Apr 25, 2017

Getting into the real estate business can be a daunting thought. Not becasue you dont have the passion or mindset to be great...it's mostly due to lack of experience (especially when negotiating deals).  That is one of the main reasons that Turnkey real estate investing became so popular.

Posted by Chris Clothier on Tue, Apr 18, 2017

Here in Memphis, we’ve had amazing weather lately...I'm talking about 70 degrees, clear skies and sunshine. Yep, that kind of awesome.

There is something about spring weather that gets you excited. Whether it's firing up the grill, taking your kids to the park or finally mastering your golf game...(good luck with that.) Warmer weather has always been this great sign of things to come.

How Memphis Invest Became the Best Customer Service Company in Turnkey Real Estate Investing

Posted by Chris Clothier on Mon, Apr 10, 2017

Customer Service is an often used phrase, some say over-used, by companies that want to set themselves apart from their competition.  Unfortunately, saying the words "Customer Service" is easier than actually committing to providing exceptional customer service.  It takes thought, process, commitment and total buy-in from a team in order to really be great.

For Memphis Invest, our mission has always been to provide the best possible experience for every real estate investor that comes into contact with our company.  Turnkey real estate investors should EXPECT more!  Value should never be measured simply by the price of a house.  The real value of an investment comes from the experience you can expect as a passive investor.

Where we set ourselves apart, and I mean we put miles and miles between us and any other company in this niche when we

Part-time can give you incredible opportunities for financial freedom—when it comes to real estate investment.

Too many people think that it’s not worth investing if you can’t dedicate
