Over the past 28 years, Sam Sadat has been involved in more than 2,000 real estate transactions as a principal, partner, lender or broker. During this time, he's helped thousands of aspiring investors learn the real estate business the right way and apply their knowledge confidently to prosper greatly.
Sam came to America as a teenager over 40 years ago. He studied physics and engineering at the University of Texas in Austin before moving to Los Angeles in the late 70's. After working in the engineering field for a year he realized his heart wasn't in it. In his words; "I belong out there connecting and networking with people rather than working on objects all day long." Besides, his enterprising spirit wasn't going to allow him to get trapped in a 9-5 job as an employee. Sam got his Real Estate License, trained with the best mentor in business and started his own company, Aim Financial, in Encino. In a few short years, his company was a top producing brokerage firm in Los Angeles.
1994 wasn't a kind year to Sam, as the Northridge Earthquake shook his world and turned it upside down. Having lost his home in Santa Monica and other investments, he moved to Denver, CO with his family in 1995 and embarked upon a soul searching sabbatical for almost a year. In his words; "This was perhaps the best year of my life. Every day I meditated for hours while hiking the entire Rockies with a good friend."
Sam's journey of self discovery changed his life forever. In 1996, with a rejuvenated spirit, he got back to work and established a new company, Global Financial Network. Once again, GFN reached the top within a few years and was funding over $100 million annually. Currently, Global Financial Network, LLC is an NMLS licensed private lending firm specializing in financing of “fix and flip” or “buy and hold” investment properties in Southern California.
"Although I loved Colorado, my heart was back home in Southern California."
Sam returned home to his beloved Santa Monica in 2002 and started his Real Estate club in 2003. Sam always dreamed of having his own educational forum where he could teach, inspire and motivate others to achieve their full potential in life and business.
Sam knows anyone can succeed in real estate -- but not without a good mentor which led to the creation of his VIP Mentorship Programs that are affordable, practical and powerful.
Over the years, Sam’s true passion has become to use his depth of knowledge to educate beginners, as well as the veterans, on the latest trends and proven strategies. He teaches that only through the process of continuing education in slow dosages can an investor assimilate the necessary knowledge, apply it with confidence and successfully navigate through the ever changing real estate market.
Having hosted his own radio show, The Free and Clear Hour, on KHOW in Denver, CO, he continues to lecture at various seminars and workshops, appear on TV and radio programs, and mentor his VIP students so they may attain success through investing in real estate. Sam also writes educational and inspirational articles for well-known real estate publications. His bestselling book, Free and Clear – The Inside Secrets of Home Mortgage Financing, has helped thousands of people save millions of dollars on their mortgages, avoid predatory lending and take control over their financial future. In addition, he taught financing and short sales classes at the Learning Annex and American Premier University.
All of this experience has made Sam Sadat one of the true renaissance men in the real estate industry. He believes that life is not just a race to see who dies with the most toys (or apartment buildings), but instead, about the journey along the road to success, all while nurturing our inner child by growing mentally and spiritually.
