Candid Video: Freedom$oft or FreedomFLOP?

FreedomSoft Review: This is an honest, original “Freedomsoft” Review, and was updated for the most recent version. If you’re considering this software, please watch and read below (even the comments)…

Software Info at: FreedomSoftIsHere.com

OK, guys. So if you’re reading this right now, then chances are you have some interest in Preston Ely’s real estate investor software called Freedomsoft. But flashy sales copy and fancy videos aside, there’s one glaring question that needs to be answered…

When you take a good, hard look past all the headlines, the fancy videos and even Preston Ely’s larger-than-life personality  – The glaring question still remains: When you strip away all the marketing hype…

Does FreedomSoft Really Stand Up On It’s Own?

Well I’ve had some exposure to it personally. In fact I was offered the chance to tinker around under the hood in advance of most people (since I own this here fancy real estate investing blog) and I graciously accepted.

But let me say, more than a few have noticed that, amid the promotion barrage, I’ve been strangely silent up to now – and yes, it was intentional.  My reasons for this are explained pretty well in the video above, but basically I’m starting to rethink the whole “everyone emails about everything all at once” thing. So jumping on the hype bandwagon and making a Freedomsoft review wasn’t exacty top on my list.

But it turns out some folks actually care enough about what I think to go out of their way to ask.  I’ve had more than a few folks asking me directly to share my frank and honest thoughts on it, good, bad and/or ugly.  Which is ultimately what convinced me to take the time to go ahead and do a candid, honest Freedomsoft review.

I’ll Be Honest…

I kinda already figured it would be pretty well done from the get-go. After all, the guy behind the actual software development (No, not Preston or Pete — another guy who’s waaaaay behind the scenes) — this guy’s like a brother to me, and known for being a thousand percent committed to exceptional quality in every project I’ve ever seen him tackle.

Freedomsoft Review Update 1: The “Secret Guy” behind the scenes actually stopped by and revealed his identity in the comments below. Bet you recognize him. :-) Keep reading…

So I had high expectations already. And I must admit I was quite impressed. But what I didn’t expect was how much they were building into it – in terms of the list of features. Apparently they took their “all-in-one real estate investing solution” idea a lot more seriously than I gave them credit initially.

…Update 2: They’ve also added a gaggle of shiny, new features to the “Reloaded” version, which I’ve highlighted in brief below for you…

Freedomsoft Review: A Few Strong, Personal Cautions…

Yes, after using this personally, I can say Freedomsoft is a really powerful piece of real estate investing software. Not just in it’s deal manager functions, but also because I’ve personally tested and used it to pull up viable property leads, thousands of cash buyer leads and a few hundred private lender leads – all in my local area and all in about 3 clicks.

But before you move too fast, please realize what FreedomSoft really is — it’s software. Now yes, they’re throwing in a bunch of other stuff — and some of it pretty darn alluring for sure. But at it’s very core, this is a business tool — a powerful one, yes — but it’s not an actual business. Please be careful not to confuse the two.

And don’t make the classic “bright shiny object syndrome” mistake of letting all the marketing and hype surrounding this convince you it’ll run your whole 7-figure real estate operation while you chillax on a Hawaiian beach.

With all that this fancy software can apparently do, it can and will powerfully multiply your REI business efforts when and if you actually apply it…BUT…if your business is still sitting at zero, friend…well, zero multiplied by anything is still zero, isn’t it?

So for starters, you need an actual real estate business for FreedomSoft to do you any good, OK?

Having said that, I’ll say this: As a business power tool for serious real estate investors, I’ve honestly never seen FreedomSoft’s match. There is one software product out there that could be considered comparable in many respects (Open Road) but they’re also different in a number of ways…and even the mastermind behind that software is promoting FreedomSoft right now. Which says something I think.

A Few Unanswered Questions…

Here are a few questions I don’t know answers to …but that deserve mention in an honest Freedomsoft review…

  • For their comps…where do they get the data?
  • Buyer/seller/landlord leads on demand…again, where are the leads sourced from?
  • Can you import your own contracts, forms and letters into the big, fancy forms editor thingy? Or are you limited to only what they have in there?

Update 3: Andy from Freedomsoft stopped by personally and answered these questions (and yours) for us in the comments below this post. Read on for straight answers you won’t find on any webinar. :-)

FreedomSoft Review: What’s New in “Reloaded”?

These items bear further explanation, but in the interest of brevity, here’s the short-but-impressive list of 8 fancy, new things (in addition to everything it already does for you)…

  1. One-Click Direct-Mail Marketing. (Lists provided too)
  2. Automated & Tracked Direct-Mail Drip Campaigns (literally just a few clicks)
  3. 45 New Website Design Templates (and you can have as many websites as you need/want)
  4. New Customized Squeeze Pages for Load Mod, Short Sale, Landord, Motivated Seller, & Private Lenders
  5. Drop-Dead-Easy Website Editor (seriously)
  6. “Make-Your-Own Contract” Builder (You can even upload & auto-fill State-Approved contracts)
  7. Contract Package Builder
  8. “Anywhere” Website Integration. Want to keep your current domain and website? Plug it straight into Freedom$oft.

And here’s a quick screen-grab of what all’s inside “Reloaded” (from a recent webinar they did)…

Freedomsoft Review

 

What To Do?

First, if you’re considering this, put on your “hype blinders” and be as objective as possible in your review. I hope my experience in the video above helps…but in the end, only you can decide if this will be just another impulse buy or a real game changer for you.

My suggestion? Focus On The Demo Videos…

At the time I’m posting this, if you scroll down the software description page a little there’s a list of short “behind the curtain” videos, that pretty much lay out every single feature you need to understand to give this thing a fair assessment.

As a very analytical guy, I’m thrilled to see them do this, and above all else I strongly urge anyone considering FreedomSoft to invest a few minutes to review these short videos if they’re still there. It’s the best due diligence you could do in your own Freedomsoft review, and should really help gel everything for you.

Private Bonus: Get Access to the Full “Kiss Flipping” Intensive Training Series Free (Actual $997.00 Value)

freedomsoft reviewAs part of my honest Freedomsoft review, I’m happy to offer my own special, private bonus to anyone who feels FreedomSoft is an ideal investment for your business. And thematically it’s a really great fit with what F$ does.

Most of you are probably familiar with our Kiss Flipping training — it’s a surprisingly simple roadmap to making big money flipping houses in today’s market. Essentially it’s Bob Norton’s entire “Keep It Simple Stupid” model for flipping deals in today’s arena. Folks are having GREAT success following this blueprint with us.

Normal tuition for this training (when it’s open) is actually $997.00, thought right now it’s quite literally closed to new members. But I’ll gladly open full, unadulterated access as a free bonus to anyone who invests in FreedomSoft through www.FreedomSoftIsHere.com (my tracking link) and then emails me their FS purchase receipt afterward. (See 2 steps below)

Look, the way I see it, the one glaring hole in FreedomSoft is that it’s NOT really a business model — it’s a business tool. So matching our KISS Flipping training up with it as a complimentary bonus makes total sense. It finishes the package for you. Hand in glove.

To Claim Your FREE Kiss Flipping Bonus…

Step 1) Purchase FreedomSoft ONLY through this link: www.FreedomSoftIsHere.com

Step 2) Email us your FreedomSoft receipt here

Step 3) I’ll confirm proper tracking, then send your KISS Flipping Membership/Access info.

That’s it. Easy as pie. And yes, a solid street value of $997.00…but absolutely worth a lot more. THIS is the real stuff we got here, folks. :-)

Freedomsoft Review: In Summary…

Understand Freedomsoft is not a “virtual money printing machine” and it’s not going to guarantee your success or fulfill your wildest fantasies. Only you can do that — and so far it still takes more than mere software to make that happen.

But my honest-to-goodness assessment is that it’s extremely well done, and if you have an REI deal-doing business, could be a serious (maybe even game changing) asset to your real estate flipping business.

And with that, I hope you found my honest Freedomsoft review helpful. My aim is to be of value in the discussion as you consider what’s right for you.  I hope I’ve done just that.

My best,
freedomsoft review

About 

JP Moses is a roughly-hewn man-child who first got into REI after reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad back in Y2K and went full time in 2002. He's tinkered in everything from landlording to short sales to rehabs to Realtoring to REOs to notes to owner financing, blah, blah, blah...Till he finally stuck his flag deep into wholesaling and has since flipped somewhere north of a couple hundred deals.

JP's not a “guru” but also doesn't think it's a bad word. Among his core values are authenticity, creativity, big honkin' value, general fun-ness and being unshaven. He's super proud to be chief blogger guy at REItips.com and host of the free REIology podcast. He also thoroughly enjoys sharing his 53 best real estate investing forms with anyone who wants them. You should totally check that out. :-)

    Thanks for taking the time to take off the blinders for those who might otherwise be swept up in the frenzy without properly understanding the implications. Preston is a good person and I am sure he would agree totaly with your assessment and conclusion. Keep up the good work of education and teamwork.

    You’re quite welcome, Doria. Thanks for commenting. Investing in good REI education and quality business resources is so important…but getting caught up in the “frenzy” (as you aptly put it) can be an expensive and self-sabotaging habit. Invest wisely, and keep a level head about it.

    Thanks for your honesty JP. I unsubscribed to FreedomSoft because of 16 emails concerning it’s launch. I don’t have my first RE deal done, so everyone asking for money is currently barking up the wrong tree. And everyone, everywhere is asking $1000 to help you. Some help.
    Richard

    “Some help.” – Well said there, Richard. The challenge can be in telling the difference between those that will be of authentic help and those that won’t. Cutting through the clutter of flashy marketing, so to speak, so you can actually make an educated decision that fits your current situation best.

    As I said, for what it’s worth I’ve had a close friendship for years with the as-yet-unnamed chap behind the actual software creation, and he’s one of the guys in this business I actually trust the most. And if I named him you’d probably feel the same way if you’ve ever been exposed to him. But he prefers to remain behind the scenes for now on this.

    But if you haven’t done a deal yet (as you said) and you’re still pretty much trying to figure out where to start, then something like FreedomSoft, no matter how good it does it’s job, isn’t an ideal fit for where you are right now. And it sounds like you realize that – good for you. :-)

  • Fab

    Checked out the product site….unbelievable!

    Two questions though. First, can all of your data be exported out of Freedom$oft the same way you import it in? Say you cancel (why?) will you have to manually pull all your data back out?

    Second, will any of the information (buyers list etc.) I upload into this online database be gathered and re-marketed or somehow be made available to everyone else using the product?

    Thanks,

    Fab

    Great questions, Fab! I have no idea on #1…or on #2 really…but I’d be real darn surprised if any of your private data is shared automatically without your permission.

    I tell you what – no guarantees here – but I’ll see if I can get some answers for you from the software developers. I’ll email them privately. Now things are pretty crazy for them right now as you might imagine, so I wouldn’t hold my breathe honestly. But I’ll give it a whirl!

    JP, your the first person who gave an honest objective opinion about the product. I’m sure many perceive it as a turn key business and will spend thousands for a product that will collect dust when they should flip a few deals, then invest in a product like this which I’m sure will save you much time and effort. There definitely is doing a great job on marketing

    Quite honestly, with the inundation of email and messages on FaceBook I have gotten about this product launch, I am severely turned off.

    This could be more important than the invention of sliced bread, but I have had it shoved down my throat enough that I don’t even want to hear about it any more. Hell, I am hiding people’s comments on FaceBook now if they start spamming me with it.

    I understand creating buzz, but this buzz has turned into the sound of my neighbor running a chain saw at 5:30 on a Sunday morning.
    .-= Chris Cliff´s last blog ..Traits of a Real Estate Investor, Entrepreneur, Capitalist =-.

    “…the sound of my neighbor running a chain saw at 5:30 on a Sunday morning.” – LOL, that’s so true! Couldn’t have said it better!

    Like I said in the video above, I have a love/hate relationship with email marketing tactics…and product launch email tactics specifically. I understand their value, and that they unquestionably work in terms of demanding attention for a product during it’s launch phase. It’s like when there’s impending severe weather and every local station has some kind of constant reminder or program interruption to let you know the thunderstorm has inches another mile across the dopplar radar…and I just want to watch the last 10 minutes of the dang LOST season finale!!! :-) But I digress…

    JP, Thank you for adding your sanity to the mix. I have been saying to myself that I need to close my first Real Estate deal to pay for the next widget or tool. I already have many real estate widgets. Thank you for keeping me well grounded! I need a business first before making any more investments – like you said. One thing I need to remind myself sometimes is – if it’s on sale now, in time, it will be on sale again. Having said that, I would buy the product in a heart beat if I didn’t already have a good arsenal of tools.

    I hear you, John – and 1,000% agree. Even if you might end up paying a little more in the future, I’ve learned its often best to wait until you’re ready to implement. You’re right…FreedomSoft stands to make a gaggle of REI activities easier, more efficient and more effective. But no one shouldn let fear of loss lead you into putting the cart before the horse. On the other hand, for those who are ready to implement what FS has to offer…it’s a pretty dang sweat piece of work. :-)

    Hey..

    I appreciate the honesty of many of the full time real estate investors…
    I did the house flipping buz for many years, (over 20)in fact did over 60 deals for my own account, and many more for other investors,but got out in 2005 when the craziness took over…

    Its now 2010, and I am now prepared to go back into the biz full time, and seek to see what is new in the technology side that can make the grind a bit easier than I remember…SO I am looking at Freedom soft, but cant justify 3000 and 97 per month….I just cant make myself pull the plug…

    I am in Central Fl, and will continue to look for whom I will partner up with this time…The biggest difference is that before I had a nice and easily obtained credit line and now that is not an option…So once I find deals, securing them for a A-B-C close is my biggest hurdle…. Any thoughts???

    Mike Norvell Sr

    Hi, Mike. Thanks for commenting! And great question.

    First, I just want to point out for anyone who doesn’t know that the F$ price point you mentioned is for the super-duper, deluxe platinum, all-bells-and-whistles variety. But there are other options. I know you realize that, but for anyone reading these comments who doesn’t, that might be a helpful clarification.

    As you’ve already discovered, those nice, easy lines of credit have all but dried up at this point. I’m sure they’ll be back, but we don’t know when. For now, a much better choice is private money — as in individuals with money to invest, with whom you develop an ongoing relationship that benefits you both.

    For what it’s worth, one of the best courses I’ve seen on the topic of private money getting is Patrick and Trevor’s Private Money Blueprint.

    But that’s definitely my suggestion – go for private money. That or deal partnering with other investors. Both still work quite well in this market/economy.

  • http://www.freedomsoft.com/ Andy Proper @ FreedomSoft

    What’s up REITips family!

    This is Andy Proper & I’m the behind-the-scenes guy at FreedomSoft that JP mentioned. He & I have been friends for a few years & you guys could not be in better hands. REITips ROCKS!

    FreedomSoft has been about 18 months in the making, day-and-night (along with about a half-dozen trips from Honolulu to Tampa to meet with Preston & Pete). We’ve been 100% committed not only to bringing the most powerful, user-friendly real estate web app to market, but also to flipping the 80/20 rule on it’s head & truly setting people free – certainly financially, but also physically, mentally, & spiritually as well.

    With our great initial feedback, I’d say that we’re on track! To answer the questions above:

    @JP Question 1 – Comps Data: I’d have some very angry partners if I disclosed where we get our comps data from. It’s already happened once because I’m terrible at keeping secrets. :) I will say that it took us a full 11 months (and being in & out of deals with two other data providers) before we found a provider with data that met our quality standards. I’ll also say that we pay an arm & a leg to provide unlimited access to this data for Freedom$oft members. It has nothing to do with free comps services like Zillow & Cyberhomes. With most other accurate comps services, you’re paying per pull or a couple hundred bucks a month. Not with FreedomSoft.

    @JP Question #2 – Instant Leads: we have different sources for each of our lead categories: REOs, Cash Buyers, FSBOs, & Motivated Sellers. Some are data feeds from 3rd party providers, but we also have 8 people full-time, in-house, whose sole job is locating & providing leads for FreedomSoft investors. Our current targets are 80,000 new cash buyers, 50,000 new REOs, 18,000 new FSBOs, and 4,800 new motivated sellers monthly, nationwide. We’ll continually be looking for new partnerships & strategies for providing FreedomSoft members with more & better leads.

    @Fab Question 1 – Exporting: as of right this second, there’s no exporting. Not because we want to lock up your data forever. :) Just because we had a million things we wanted to squeeze into Freedom$oft prior to launch & exporting was lower on the priority list. It will be there soon though. Freedom$oft will continue to grow, based on great suggestions like this from our members.

    @Fab Question 2 – Privacy: To answer your second question, absolutely not! Your buyers are your buyers & your data is your data. It’s 100% safe, backed up multiple times daily, & belongs exclusively to you.

    @Chris Cliff – I apologize for the inundation of emails. We’ve had overwhelming marketing support from over 200 industry leaders. The chainsaw will turn off as soon as we shut the doors Tuesday night, I promise. :)

    Speaking of Tuesday night, we have one final “last hoorah” webinar tonight. Preston & Pete will be doing a brand new presentation, answering FAQs, discussing new FreedomSoft features in the works, & raffling off another Platinum V.I.P. membership package.

    (In fact, they’re beside me right now working on it!)

    If you want to join us, it’s at 9pm EST tonight (Tuesday the 26th).

    Andy! Dude! Thank you so much, my friend! Your honest answers mean the world to me, and I’m sure to my subscribers as well. And I’m even more impressed with your answers. You’re awesome, brother.

    What’s up REITips family!

    This is Andy Proper & I’m the behind-the-scenes guy at FreedomSoft that JP mentioned. He & I have been friends for a few years & you guys could not be in better hands. REITips ROCKS!

    FreedomSoft has been about 18 months in the making, day-and-night (along with about a half-dozen trips from Honolulu to Tampa to meet with Preston & Pete). We’ve been 100% committed not only to bringing the most powerful, user-friendly real estate web app to market, but also to flipping the 80/20 rule on it’s head & truly setting people free – certainly financially, but also physically, mentally, & spiritually as well.

    With our great initial feedback, I’d say that we’re on track! To answer the questions above:

    @JP Question 1 – Comps Data: I’d have some very angry partners if I disclosed where we get our comps data from. It’s already happened once because I’m terrible at keeping secrets. :) I will say that it took us a full 11 months (and being in & out of deals with two other data providers) before we found a provider with data that met our quality standards. I’ll also say that we pay an arm & a leg to provide unlimited access to this data for Freedom$oft members. It has nothing to do with free comps services like Zillow & Cyberhomes. With most other accurate comps services, you’re paying per pull or a couple hundred bucks a month. Not with FreedomSoft.

    @JP Question #2 – Instant Leads: we have different sources for each of our lead categories: REOs, Cash Buyers, FSBOs, & Motivated Sellers. Some are data feeds from 3rd party providers, but we also have 8 people full-time, in-house, whose sole job is locating & providing leads for FreedomSoft investors. Our current targets are 80,000 new cash buyers, 50,000 new REOs, 18,000 new FSBOs, and 4,800 new motivated sellers monthly, nationwide. We’ll continually be looking for new partnerships & strategies for providing FreedomSoft members with more & better leads.

    @Fab Question 1 – Exporting: as of right this second, there’s no exporting. Not because we want to lock up your data forever. :) Just because we had a million things we wanted to squeeze into Freedom$oft prior to launch & exporting was lower on the priority list. It will be there soon though. Freedom$oft will continue to grow, based on great suggestions like this from our members.

    @Fab Question 2 – Privacy: To answer your second question, absolutely not! Your buyers are your buyers & your data is your data. It’s 100% safe, backed up multiple times daily, & belongs exclusively to you.

    Oops.. just realized I forgot to answer @JP Question #3 – Contracts:

    FreedomSoft comes pre-loaded with Purchase & Sale, Assignment, and Option agreements. Absolutely, you can upload your own contracts. Although I’ll admit that formatting your own contract templates might be the most technically challenging thing you’ll encounter inside FreedomSoft at this time (although still not bad).

    As we speak, we’re looking to improve this editor, as well as pre-load all 50 state contracts for all FreedomSoft members.

    This & a heck of a lot more coming soon!

    I’d seen Andy’s name during the webinar I was on and also in the email to sign up for the webinar and I thought…Hmmmm! Could he be the guy behind the scenes? Now we know. I agree with JP’s candid assessment of the program and even before I saw it, decided it wasn’t a good fit for my business.
    So after tonight, our inboxes will be Freedomsoft free but you guys should know better…that’s just until the next latest and greatest Bright Shiney Object comes out! :)
    Thanks again JP!

    What about updates? The marketing shows that the only level with upgrades is the platinum level. Does this mean that if I join at the basic level I will have to pay for upgrades down the road in addition to the monthly fee??

    OK–ALL the deluge of emails was a BIG turn off. I already have SIMS and realeflow/open road so was not even interested. I am re-considering. How do I get FreddomSoft now? Don’t tell me it’s closed, I know it can and will open at any time anyone wants to open it–so how?

    Hi, Sherry – as of the time I’m typing this, they’re re-opening on Wed for (I think) 48 hours. With payment plan options. Here’s the website to check for details. Hope that helps!

    Hi, JC. I just tried it and it worked for me. Must have been a momentary glitch in the redirect.

    At any rate, here’s another link (with no redirect) you can use that will work the same way…

    Well sorry, but I have yet to get to use the FS, comps do not work for my area, motivated sellers and all that do not either, maps are not great,v pike works better. e-signature could not get going, affiliate, lost $500 on that one,contracts are not easy and to top that today they called wanting to charge the mo. $ 98 and the 60 day trial is not even up. With ALL the glitches and lack of HELP/support a person would need 60 plus days. Why do I need to pay $1200 year when without comps and other VITAL info-how to do a legit contract,plus FS owns my info/websites upon not paying the $98. $400year, 2 websites,online for 5 yrs.,no glitches, CONNECTED INVESTORS has NO BOOM to drop on my head or purse. For areas that the info does not work, Preston needs to LOWER the fee, but to me that is not the answer either, except maybe to chat with other FS folks to which I say there are SO many other RE chat rooms.

  • Mike Norvell Sr

    I like your insights…..As I move thru the process of buying and selling homes again here in Central Fl, it is good to gain access to your common sense straightforward ways of explaining how to get started and avoid many of the traps…
    As for Freedom SOft….I am not far enough along yet to justify the expense for me…15 years ago when I was doing this full time non stop, I would have paid double for the chance at a program like this….

  • Anonymous

    Im new to investing and I must say that personally I cant wait to get my hands on FS. I sit and watch my mentor use it and I know what it has to offer. We almost shot a video today of an investor without FS. LOL..

    Going from excel to tax appraiser, to google maps, then here and there.

    I would love to have everything on one screen. Would save so much time.

    Glad I was able to see through all the hate that this is a fit for me

  • IMMZVICIOUS2UOK

    NOW THAT’S MORE LIKE THE TRUTH MS. McCORMICK, WHERE YOU EXPLAIN ITS NOT EASY TO GET CONTRACTS, LACK OF HELP/SUPPORT. THANKS FOR MENTIONING THAT IN SOME AREAS THIS PROGRAM JUST DOES NOT WORK, IT WAS ALSO AMAZING ON ONE VIDEO IT STATED YOU ALREADY NEEDED TO BE INTO REAL ESTATE WHICH I AM NOT!! I DON’T KNOW THE FIRST THING ABOUT SELLING/FLIPPING A HOME. I’M GLAD I READ YOUR COMMENT, I DO NOT THINK THIS FREEDOMSOFT IS FOR ME, THE MONEY SOUNDED GREAT BUT IT ALMOST SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!! AND USUALLY IT IS, IF YOU DON’T MIND ME ASKING, DID YOU MAKE ANY MONEY?? OR DID YOU JUST REQUEST A REFUND? NOW THEY ARE ONLY OFFERING A 30 DAY MONEY BACK GAURANTEE, AGAIN LIKE YOU SAID BY THAT TIME YOUR MEMBERSHIP FEE IS DUE AND IF YOU HAVEN’T MADE ANY MONEY THEN HOW WOULD YOU PAY YOUR MONTHLY DUES?? THESE PEOPLE ALREADY KNOW WE BROKE OR STRUGGLING. AGAIN THANK YOU  I’VE DECIDED NOT TO ORDER THIS.. IT SEEMS ALL THE WORK AT HOME OFFERES/BUSINESSES ARE NOT GOOD AND A LOT OF HIDDEN WORK AND INFORMATION TO LEARN.

  • sfparrott

    JP as you stated, you already need to have an REI business in place for F$ to benefit you. Will pairing F$ and the Kiss Flipping training together help a beginner start an REI business? Is it possible to do this without money out of pocket (other than your membership fees, of course) or using your credit? If so, is that covered in the Kiss Flipping training?

  • Madelin Webb

    Hello!
    I am living in Los Angeles, California. How this “soft-freedom RE pro”… will help in here when CEO or President mention Florida?
    Please, email me at elleneast11@hotmail.com your respond.
    How do you help RE with this (as you mention) “powerful tool” for investment?
    If anybody will buy and use this system…How do I know that other RE investor will use this system in the same time and the same city or street? Is those numbers that you propose as a cash buyers are not 10 years ago? You got my point…
    Thanks for your asap respond…

    Regardless of whether FreedomSoft does what it purports to do or not, THIS cannot be an “honest review” if you are an affiliate of it.
