Six Years Ago, I Made A Pilgrimage To Baltimore To Learn How To Scale My Stagnant Real Estate Business...


We need to talk.

Look, I know not everyone is as motivated as I am. I am a driver. I am a workhorse. And everything I do is designed to get me closer to my goals.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a business goal, a family goal, or a personal goal.

  • I set the goal.
  • I design my plan to reach my goal.
  • I share my goal with others so they can make me accountable.
  • And then, step by step, I do the things I need to do to reach my goals.


I have always been this way. I am determined to do exactly what I need to do to accomplish what I want to accomplish.

If you are reading this, I have a feeling you are either (1) as motivated as I am to succeed, or (2) want to be.

Am I right?

Six years ago, I had reached a business plateau. I was making good money, closing several dozen deals a year, making sure my staff was loving what they do, and earning more than enough money to feed their families and put a roof over their heads.

Six years ago, I had it all.

Except growth. My business was stagnant. It was almost like I couldn’t grow because I just couldn’t figure out how to do more than I was already doing.

I couldn’t scale my business.

Frankly, I didn’t know how to do it by myself.

That's when I made a decision to do something I had sworn to myself I would never do again...

Stay with me. A little back story now.

I spent more than a decade working for one on the largest home builders in the country. I worked my way up the corporate ladder, was making a s***load of money, and was set up for a lifelong career.

Except it was somebody else’s life. It certainly wasn’t the life I wanted. I always knew I wasn’t the corporate suit; I just played the game because… well, because I simply turned off that part of me who knew I was just in the wrong place.

So what did I do?

I quit.

I walked away.

I said sayonara to a sweet, cushy life and lifestyle that most would envy.

I knew I wanted to start my own real estate investing business. But as a corporate executive, I only knew enough to be dangerous. I knew just enough to tell other people what to do.

That’s when I spent the worst $50,000 of my life.

Yep, I gave $50,000 to a real estate guru who promised he could make anyone a real estate millionaire.

And I believed him!

I went through all his materials. I studied. I sent out post cards and put up bandit signs. And I even closed a few deals.

Go me!

Until I got stuck and called him on his personal line (a Google Voice line that his customer service department monitored), and left a question for him on his voice mail.

“Hey Guru (not his real name), I’m stuck. I need some help. How do I…?” and laid out my problem.

“Frank,” Guru said when he called me back four days later. “Yeah that’s a little different. Why don’t you just wholesale that property and move onto the next?”

Really? Wholesale? That’s your answer? I spent $50,000 for you to tell me that?

I chalked up that $50,000 as a mistake I would never make again.

Fast forward 5 years...

I needed help. Again.

I was smarter this time. I had joined the most prestigious network of real estate investors in the country. And now I had real real estate investors to bounce my questions off.

Joining that group cost me $20,000. That’s the $20K spend that I can directly attribute to growing my assets by $92 million.

Stay with me. Soon you will learn how.

One member of the group really impressed me. He had what I wanted — a thriving and — more importantly — a growing real estate investment business that I envied. Yes, I was jealous!

I asked him how he did it.

“It’s just a matter of finding the right people, setting up the right processes, spending money the right way, and keeping up with my markets,” he told me.

“Can you to teach me you to do what you do?” I asked.

“Frank, I don’t have the time. I’m not a guru, I am a real investor,” he said.

“Even if I pay you?” I countered.

“You couldn’t pay me enough!” he laughed.

I pulled out my checkbook and right there, on the spot, I wrote him a check for $50,000 (yes the same amount I paid guru man, and that I swore I would never do again).

I handed him the check. “I will be there for three days starting Monday. I just want to watch what you do, soak it all in, be in your meetings, listen in on your calls, and watch how you do what you do.”

He wouldn’t take my check but invited me anyway. It changed my life…

Those three days have allowed me to increase my assets by $92 million over the past 6 years — yep, $92,000,000!

Now, I can do the same thing for you.

Read on.

Now, I’ve built the program I wish I had found back then.

It’s similar to what I unknowingly created when I forced my mentor (a great friend still today) to let me tail him for three days.

I call it the Frank Cava Real Estate Success Summit. And not just anyone can attend. Keep reading to learn how to apply.

My next Summit will start at 8:30 am, Monday, January 31, 2022, at my corporate office in Richmond, Virginia.

Part of it coincides with my company’s Annual Meeting, which you will attend if your application is accepted.

It’s the culmination of all the lessons I have learned building my 8-figure real estate business.

I am just formalizing it and offering it to a few of those who qualify.

Watch below and see how a few of the investors fared after they tailed me for a few days…

Why am i doing this?

Because I can.

I am as busy as I have ever been. And my family is growing — my wife and I welcomed the newest addition to our family in March of 2021.

But, with all that is going on in the world, and because a few dozen investors have asked me to let them do what Danielle, Matt, Matthew, and Tim did, I have decided to open it up.

The first event is less than a month away. And while we just opened it up, it is already three-quarters filled.

Here’s my invitation:

I want less than a dozen of the most motivated, determined, and driven real estate investors to join me and my team for my very first Real Estate Wealth Summit Monday, Jan. 31 through Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2022.

We will wear you out with actionable techniques you can use immediately to get your business moving more quickly than you ever thought possible.

If you haven’t already, schedule a call now to discuss your current business and your goals. We will choose fewer than a dozen to be part of what will certainly be an extraordinary event.

But please don’t waste our time and yours if:

  • You are just getting started
  • This is a side hustle for you
  • You plan to negotiate the price
  • You aren’t open and receptive to change and growth

Otherwise, stop what you’re doing right now and start scaling your business:

It’s a lot. But if you were like I was 6 years ago, and like Daniel, Matt, Matthew, and Tim in the video above, you will leave with so many ways to improve your business that you will be champing at the bit to get started.

And then it all happens again in the Spring, then in the Summer, and again in the Fall.

No, this isn’t free. Yes, it could be invaluable to the right person.

But you need to step up. And you need to do it soon.
