Entrepreneur Jim Toner has made money in the real estate industry in a few different ways. He has invested in real estate, mainly residential properties. He has also been a radio host and has publicly spoken around the country about the opportunities in this industry. Some of the speakers he has put in appearances with include Sharon Lechter, Frank McKinney, Bill Bartmann, and the team at The Napoleon Hill Foundation. He has also worked as a consultant where he shares his strategies with other business owners in the industry.
He says that he has been down in the trenches in this industry for more than 25 years. Over the course of his career, Jim Toner put together the 12 Little House Plan which shows what strategies people should follow if they want to use real estate to attain financial freedom. Most of his time is spent on his own real estate deals but he does make time for a select group of private clients and once in awhile accepts new ones.
Jim Toner is also an active philanthropist. As a resident of Pittsburg, he has a seat on the advisory board for that city’s Salvation Army branch. He also donates money to and volunteers his time to the Frank and Nilsa McKinney’s Caring House Project. this nonprofit builds concrete and steel homes in developing countries that have been hit by hurricanes and other natural disasters.
He is also an author. Jim Toner wrote, “The Band of Rebels” which is about his time in the real estate industry spent with like-minded individuals. He says that he was on a team of entrepreneurs who worked at the street-level in this industry, scouring for new opportunities. He says the book is about his time with these people as well as being about the attitude it takes to succeed. He says that local, state, and the federal government put up a lot of barriers to being a business owner in the real estate market and you have to be strong and determined to push through it all.
