Finding Clarity and Navigating Complexity, with Zachary Beach

Oct 30, 2019


Zachary Beach is the Chief Operating Officer at Smart Real Estate Coach, where he has been investing, training and mentoring students in many aspects of the real estate world for more than seven years. Zach initially got involved in real estate after realizing that his life as a bartender and personal trainer wasn’t providing him the opportunities for prosperity and happiness that he was looking for. Recognizing that he needed to make a change, Zach approached his father-in-law, master real estate investor and coach Chris Prefontaine, with a desire to learn the ins and outs of real estate investing despite having no prior experience in the field. Now, Zach and the family team at Smart Real Estate Coach work to teach others the hard-won skills and processes they developed, using an innovative strategy of buying and selling property “on terms”.
