Real Estate Investment Education starts right here!
Join the Real Wise Social Network, a network of some of the brightest, most creative, entrepreneurs and real estate investors.
Who We Are
Real Wise started from an idea that education can change the world…What we proved was we were right. Real Wise delivers information that can literally change lives and the world. Consider this website a wonderful fusion between real estate investing, entrepreneurial spirit and life! We have been committed since 2002 to deliver the best knowledge through live events, website resources, educational products and of course John’s books!
Our mission, simple wealth, simple success and simple life, was born from the idea that wealth has nothing to do with money. It is virtually a state of mind. What you think about, with proper action, transitions into the physical. John’s book, The Alchemy of Wealth explains this phenomenon the best.
Our responsibility is to provide knowledge. Our customers have the responsibility to take action with that knowledge. We have found from our inception that investors in real estate come across three hurdles. Lack of knowledge, lack of money and lack of confidence. Real Wise delivers knowledge in such a way that the lack of money and confidence disappears the more you get involved with us.
Real Estate knowledge is vital to success in Real Estate Investment
Making sure you are staying up on your work to accomplish your goals is how REALWISE ensures success with its clients.
Confidence is key, this is an age old saying that can apply to almost anything in life.
Maybe your most powerful asset, REALWISE was built around the concept that we can all help each other achieve the success we desire.
There’s a lot of money being made in apartments today. Why shouldn’t you be one of them?

Real Estate H2O
Real Estate H2O…Who would have thought that I would have written a book about Real Estate and water? I mean, who would have put the two together? Real Estate investing with all of its complexities, myths, challenges and superstars, how do you introduce water as a contrast? Well I don’t. What you will find in this book is a myriad of facts about water.
Alchemy of Wealth
“There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty.” -Wallace D. Wattles. This book is something that I am very proud of.
The minds behind realwise
I have bought foreclosures, short sales and single family houses, by the dozens. I have done fix and flips, and bought properties directly from banks and other financial institutions. I have bought multi-family units by the hundreds. I have bought office buildings, a retail center, designed and created a successful restaurant, and have done several design and construction projects in the residential market.
I have negotiated with some of the richest men on the planet. My largest real estate deal was $14,000,000 and my smallest deal was $9,000. I once bought a deal for $3,150,000 and in 18 months turned it into $5,600,000. (I have done several deals like that). I have have had a line of credit approved over the phone for $1,700,000 in 45 minutes(and started to use the money the next day)! I have also had Donald Trump state in the New York Post that I was a real estate expert that you must meet! I have developed innovative investing techniques and systems that have perplexed the most savvy investors, leaving them saying “why didn’t I think of that?”

Originally Posted by John Dessauer on January 4, 2016 One of the reasons inexperienced real estate investors often fail is because they pay too much for properties.
