My name is Steve Duce. Thanks for visiting my website. I
have to be honest and tell you I really don't know how this
website will evolve in the next several months. It's a work
in progress and I'm not
building it to impress the world about me. I'm also not here to sell
you something just because you stumbled upon my site. You
can come and go as you please without getting hit with a
popup begging you to stay and buy something.
real estate and one of the few online experts who actually earns
a living from it.
Investing is what has caused me to hang up my journeyman
electrician license in 1996 without ever looking back. I'll
always remember where I came from and the road I've traveled
has made me who I am today. My time working construction has
really helped me throughout the years when it comes time to
dealing with the many contractors needed to rehab my
In the late 90's, (I feel old typing that) I began a real
estate partnership with well known real estate guru Ron
LeGrand™. Ron and I have
done a countless number of deals together and the
partnership has taught me far more than any book or cd
course ever could! After a few years I branched off with my
own investment company.
In 2001, after sitting on the board, I was voted to be the
president of the largest investor's group in Northeast
Florida. I've made a lot of friends and many contacts there
so if you're reading this and not a member of a real estate
investment group, I suggest you seek out the closest group
to you and become a member. Hopefully the contacts you make
will be as beneficial to you as mine have been for me.
I started teaching real estate classes for our Investment
group and eventually
became Ron LeGrand's lead instructor at his seminars.
I have been teaching on the national circuit for many years
and have met many, many great people along the way.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and sharing the stage
with people like, Ron LeGrand, Wright Thurston, Ernie
Kessler, Dr. Phil McGraw, Robert Kiyosaki, Suze Ormond,
Robert Allen, Coach Don Shula, Marshall Sylver, Corey Rudl,
Terry Dean, and many...many more well known experts.
The real estate business is what I love and I still work in
the business in some fashion almost every single day.... and
have been since 1996.
more deals than I can count and
have taught literally thousands of students across the US
and even in Canada.
A major reason for this website is so I can offer a means of
contact and support to the many real estate students I
teach. I've taught in more places than I can list...places
like New York, many parts of Florida, Los Angles, Las Vegas,
Denver, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco,
Seattle, Jersey, Toronto Canada and many other places.
It always impresses to hear those who know
exactly how many deals they have done because when I started, it
never occurred to me to count them.
It also impresses me to
hear those who say they
"discovered a new formula" or "stumbled on a new amazing
concept" that'll make you rich in 30 or 60 days.
I find that
most of these guys are just repeating what they learned
in a weekend seminar or some online download and are
more focused on selling you something than they are on
actually see review sites out there where a certain trainer
is reviewed much higher than all the others yet, if you do a
search of the website owner....you'll find it actually
belongs to the trainer in the review or, the high review
is one the one that has something to sell on the website.
Ha, you can't make this stuff up. Guys, if a review site is
there with something to sell, do you think it's in their
best interest to rank someone higher than themselves? Oh my
gosh! I have actually seen a review site actually post
this review about a very good instructor: "I've never
seen his material but I don't recommend him. I recommend
my product below." Oh Please!! If you haven't seen it,
how the heck can you review it.
of these sites are only using the names so they can get
internet traffic from them AND...even though search
engines won't admit it...negativity will get a higher
ranking than non-negativity.
I'm telling you all this because its important for you to
know about who you listen to. There are many self proclaimed
experts popping up every where it seems and...well....Ron
also taught me "be careful with whom you listen to."
The people you
want to learn from are people who actually apply what they
learn and actually work the business at a level which
exceeds the level you wish to achieve. Get your advise from
