Trump University student combines real estate investment training and financial planning experience to become Idaho's leading commercial real estate investor

Using the skills he learned in our Real Estate Investor's Training Program, John knew exactly what to look for when he went to Boise to investigate its commercial real estate market and was able to orchestrate a financially sound deal.

Despite the explosion in foreclosed residential properties in Idaho, the state's commercial real estate holds steady and is anticipated to continue to grow during 2008.

An experienced financial planner, John Hancock saw Idaho's strong commercial real estate market as an investment opportunity. Since he had never invested in out-of-state real estate, he enrolled in Trump University's Real Estate Investor's Training Program to learn the skills he needed to select the right properties for short- and long-term investments. Trump University's training and support and his financial planning skills helped Hancock net over $50,000 in his first commercial property deals.

"As the son of a successful real estate investor, I knew wisely investing in property could lead to early retirement," Hancock said. "I had prospered in equity, but was finding it difficult to exact a positive monthly cash flow from my current properties, so I turned to the Trump University Real Estate Investor's Training Program for help." With Trump University's guidance, Hancock learned to research markets analytically, look for and evaluate properties and how to contact agents. He also received guidance on interviewing agents and developing other needed resources. Within just three weeks of completing the coursework, Hancock was ready to apply the lessons learned, with the first step being to find other investors.

"When John came to us, he was already a savvy financial planner. But with the skills and training he received from Trump University, he was able to round out his personal investment portfolio with real estate," said Josef Katz, Vice President of Marketing for Trump University. "Using the skills he learned in our Real Estate Investor's Training Program, John knew exactly what to look for when he went to Boise to investigate its commercial real estate market and was able to orchestrate a financially sound deal."

Hancock found Boise's commercial market strong and growing with excellent rent-to-price ratios. "I found the property I wanted to invest in, made the decision to move forward with a partner, and netted $15,000 on that first deal without investing a dime," said Hancock.

Now a licensed California real estate agent, Hancock has gone on to purchase and resell a seven-unit condominium property at one-week's net gain of $14,000..

Due to Hancock's great success in the Idaho real estate market, he has become the California sponsor of radio spots promoting Idaho real estate development and will be featured on upcoming Trump University Real Estate Investor's Training Program tele-seminars.
