If creative real estate had a Jedi Master, Chuck would be Yoda.
Charles M. Kohout AKA The Chuck, is a successful investor, entrepreneur salesmen, educator
with no formal training. Chuck has an incredible drive and habit of succeeding in almost
everything he does wile learning from his few failures. Chuck possesses an uncanny ability to
influence and sell to those who grace his presents, along with a seemingly supernatural ability to
manage stress and pressure. Shit just doesn’t seam to bother this guy, and he finds the good in
everything. Chuck has literally grown up in the world of business. He has spent his life running
a number of companies. It’s been in his blood since before he could see over the counter in his
father’s bakery. He seemingly does not know the difference between business and pleasure
because to Chuck they are one and the same. He has become and evolved over the years into the
living embodiment of what a fearless leader should be, with accolades not limited to and
including 1 st runner up heavy weight Mr. America, Published Research Biologist, Millionaire
before the age of 30, National Public speaker, platform closer and the Nations leading expert
on the Absolute Assignment of Rights. Just to name a few. He is truly the embodiment of
everything an alpha male should be.
Chuck founded his first company Salvation Home Buyers LLC, in 2004, a company that
functions as a hybrid of a real estate holding company, which allowed him to leave the
workforce and never look back netting in excess of $200,000 in its first year of business. Years
later and over one thousand transactions the company still is in existence and profitable today..
“I had created the financial part, but the freedom still eluded me. So I sat down for a weekend
with a 19 year old girl whom I had previously awarded a scholarship to and began dictating a
manual intended to be used by my people to run my real estate investment business while I went
on vacation. I honestly had no idea the impact of dumping my head on paper would have on the
investment community. The thing read more like a cook book with all the ingredients needed for
4 basic successful nothing down no credit transactions.”
Shortly after Chuck booked 3 weeks in Hawaii with his 1 st future ex wife, left the company in
the hands of Linton Gentles and his band of merry misfits. To his amazement, the company not
only ran and made money, but actually did better when chuck was hands off. Stories of this
creative real estate cook book and it’s recipes for success began to circulate
After years of being put on a pedestal at all the local real estate investment clubs and being
begged and bribed for his secrets Chuck knew it was time to sell. In 2007 chuck founded
Applied Education after identifying a need in the market for a product that truly worked out of
the box and bridged the gap between all the late night TV, YouTube Gurus selling bullshit that
did not work and wasn’t state specific
“It was crazy! I was surrounded by Fortune Builders victims and those who had found anything
but financial freedom as they took on more debt by attending Rich Dad classes. It’s like these
companies were created to pray upon us newbie investors wile up-selling the next product designed
to drive the real estate investment community deeper in to debt! I don’t know if I was that smart
and was able to find a way or if I just fought that hard. But I think it may be the latter of the 2”
But Applied Education would ultimately fail due to excessive growth and miss management
from the inside causing Chuck to loose over 3 million in cash and assets and holding the bag for
just under 2 million in bad debt.
“I remember having a conversation with one of my former students Nick Tang after
Applied Education tanked. He was all like OMG how are you going to make a living?!? I
was all like LOL. You think I really make that much money off speaking? It’s just fun,
like a reward for people who can actually do this. Probably the closest thing I’ll ever do
to being a rock star, you get laid a lot too! guess I’m Just going to kick back and keep
doing what I teach. Time to go back to my roots now and keep turning houses. Truth be
told the real money Is in real estate.”
After years of fighting to rebuild, Chuck reluctantly filed for bankruptcy and rebuilt his
real estate investment company with the help of several former students and investors
in a matter of months. It was then Chuck decided to do something he had yet to
experience. He made the conscious decision to live life. But after traveling the country,
the world, even starting a family, something was still missing.
“I had taken off most of my 30’s, Life had become the definition of unfulfilling. For
years I had define success as, waking up when you were done sleeping. It’s been said
A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for. I had literally checked off
every box on my bucket list. Maybe I just set the bar too low? But something was
It was in the mist of training for his first cage fight, simultaneously training for his first
alpine style mountain climb that it clicked! It wasn’t about the money. It was about the
rush and the excitement that came with victory. Creative Real Estate transactions and
doing but most perceived as impossible fulfilled part of Chuck’s inner being.
“I didn’t care about money, I cared about glory! Closing a transaction that most would
walk away from or seeing the spark in a students eyes after they locked up there first
deal and set them on a new life path meant more to me than the day I made millionaire.
It was the same feeling I got from dominating opponents on the Matt, summiting some
of the highest peaks, wrestling alligators, rescuing swarms of wild bees or bringing
home attractive woman 2 at a time. I accepted I was an adrenaline junkie”
Witch brings us to today.
After ignoring all the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease and several other tropical parasites,
Chuck ended up neurologically paralyze in the summer of 2016. Unable to walk or move from
his hospital bed for 10 days. Spending months with a home care nurse, and the next few years
rehabbing himself wile shaking a chemical dependency on prescription drugs and anti-
depressants that lead him down the dark path to years clinical insanity, Chuck managed to make
yet another comeback.
“My body didn’t work like it used to. And though I can’t remember any of it, I’ve seen the
pictures of the lines out side my hospital room and the people jam packed inside, friends family,
students, sellers and investors alike. To this day my team of doctors is amazed, I guess I did a lot
more good things for a lot more good people than I realized”
It was latter in the recovery process that Chucks Neurologist handed him an un-signed card. It
