Real Estate Riches; Colin Caughey Rip off Report Dolf de Roos [and others]
He claims: “[he is a] world renowned real estate investment authority. Many people are familiar with Dolf through his prolific work in the realm of real estate investing – he has taught in over 25 countries and has written 15 books on real estate including the New York Times bestseller Real Estate Riches. However, Dolf has also been prolific in other areas business including Technology Transfer, taking companies global, mentoring business people seeking to go to the next level, and running his premiere events on the shores of Lake Como in Northern Italy.
Although born in New Zealand, Dolf de Roos started kindergarten in Europe and went on to attend school in a variety of countries. This early introduction to travel no doubt contributed to his present propensity to move around. Today, speaking six languages and holding business interests in a number of regions, he considers himself a citizen of the world.
While studying Electrical Engineering at the University of Canterbury, Dolf realized electrical engineering, though inherently interesting, was not necessarily lucrative. A subsequent nine-month study of the rich followed to determine what qualities they had in common. Attributes they did not share were age, gender, race, creed, country of origin or education. Surprisingly, it did not even matter whether or not they were born into rich families. Dolf did note one common denominator; almost without exception, the rich either made their money through property or held their wealth in property. This finding marked a shift in Dolf’s focal point. Although he continued on to earn a PhD in Engineering, Dolf began investing in property as an undergraduate student.
Over the years, as his successes with property became apparent, Dolf was cajoled into sharing the “why” and “how” of his real estate investment strategies. He has run public seminars throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia, North America, and Europe, trained real estate agents, written and published eleven best-selling property books including the New York Times Best Seller Real Estate Riches, as well as introduced software to both analyze and manage investment property. Consequently, his views on property are esteemed, and he is often asked to address investors’ conferences, appear on radio shows, and take part in television debates.
In addition to teaching real estate, Dolf has developed courses on the psychology of wealth in general, as he realized that without the correct mindset, it is difficult for anyone to amass a fortune.
Nonetheless, Dolf’s primary passion is not just in teaching wealth creation or real estate, but investing in real estate, which he continues to do around the world.
Dolf teaches at events and institutions in over 16 countries including Tony Robbins’ Wealth Mastery and Trump University. He also worked with Robert Kiyosaki for a number of years and wrote the book in the Rich Dad’s Advisor series on real estate. He was on four thousand five hundred radio stations daily for over four years. In 2003 Dolf was appointed Visiting Professor of Real Estate at the University of North Texas.
People who are familiar with Dolf know him as being passionate about the psychology of wealth in general, real estate in particular and more than willing to share the fruits of his ongoing quest for knowledge.”
