What Box? Seminar

The name of the game is financial freedom, and the key is mailbox money!

This creative-deal-structuring seminar was born with a two-word email. Bill called Pete with a deal-structuring question. Pete’s idea worked and the deal quickly closed. Bill sent Pete a ‘Thank You’ letter for his “outside-the-box” advice. Pete replied with a simple, two-word email: “What Box?” It was classic Pete!

A successful investor’s most important tools are imagination, curiosity, fearlessness, persistence, and the willingness to meet with sellers. What Box? The Seminar helps you see the different ways you can creatively construct a deal without using institutional financing. What Box? helps you realize that when it comes to real estate investing, there is no box. Everything is Possible!

Peter Fortunato

Peter Fortunato

Real Estate Investment Guru

Peter is a libertarian and a capitalist. He believes that transactions which you can be proud of result from carefully conceived goals and plans followed by purposeful actions and scrupulous documentation. Upon graduating from high school in 1965, Peter went right into the real estate business. His motivation was his desire to be self-employed. Pete says “Everyone who knew me believed that I was unemployable. They were right. I still am!” Peter was excited about being free to build his business and his future. He attended seminars and read at every opportunity. He sought out and learned from many mentors and benefited from the example and counsel of his father who encouraged him and supported him from the beginning. Pete finished college with a clientele and an investment portfolio. By 1975 his investment income had eliminated his need for fees from clients to fund his lifestyle.
Peter continues to teach and to attend real estate and investment seminars and meetings regularly. He is respected for his clear and patient explanations of investment concepts and transactions.
He has been building, structuring, manipulating and managing investment transactions and portfolios for more than 45 years. Pete currently lives in Tampa, Florida.
