9:20 am
looking for with this type oft is for somebody that still has active hair follicles. a lot of the time when there is no visible hair there in the area we'ere is still an active hair follicle. what you do is you come into the clinic for an evaluation, takes about 30 minutes. we'll check your hair follicle camera. we'll tell you yes or no, y candidate for the treatment and we'll be able to tell you if you have active hair follicles. if you do we're still able to regrow back that haarea where you still have theuse you might not have hair doesn't mean there's no hope. >> exactly. because a lot of people take a look and they're like i'm too far gone. or we get a lot of female patients about 65% of our patient base is actually female patients. which tend to lose their hair a little bit later on in life because they're producing more testosterone in their body. and they'll take a look and
9:21 am
extensions, which can be further damaging to the hair. and they're thinking that there is no hope for into the inconsider i can and we can take a look at determine yes, weicles, but like i said you come into the clinic and we'll be able to tell you on the spot if you do. exactly. >> absolutely. >> how quickly can we see these results? >> so the laser starts to take weeks. and typically our patients are seeing a positive cosmetic change in the first few months. however, the earlier on you catch the hair loss, the faster you will receive results with it. >> and earlier you mentioned males and females. >> majority of females are coming in now, yeah. so we can treat males or females, age is not a to lose their hair earlier in life in their early
9:22 am
lose their hair later on in life but it doesn't matter, as long as you have the active hair follicles. and the really nice part about this program is we have the convenience factor. just because -- a lot of people can't make it into the clinic. if they are coming in for a clinic treatment program, they're coming once a week for 20 minute laser session. but some people can't commit to that. and we have portable devices now available, including the most popular is laser cap where you can use it at home, it's rechargeable, you wear it three times a week for 30 minutes. it's nice and convenient, you don't have to come into the clinic and don't have to take time out of your busy lifestyle to actually regrow your hair back. >> basically you can get a treatment at home, just watching tv and letting that cap work for you. >> exactly. and that's going to be the most popular device on the market today. >> do you feel anything? >> you don't. so again, there's no side effects involved with this, and it is pain-free. so even though we say laser it's
9:23 am
>> and you have a morning blend special. >> we do. we're going to offer you the important evaluation to tell you if you're going to be a good candidate, absolutely free. we'll do a free evaluation. we'll do a free consultation with you, and we'll do that free first clinical laser session so you can see what laser hair therapy is like and test drive it. >> do you have people coming in and in they're in their 20s and 30s. >> we have people of all ages coming in, because unfortunately it's not always a natural process when it is causing hair loss. it could be medication that you were taking. could be stress that was causing it. we see people of all ages in the clinic. >> and again, you mentioned just because you don't have hair maybe on the surface -- >> correct. >> and perhaps bald doesn't mean you cannot get help. >> it doesn't mean you can't get help, doesn't mean you don't still have active hair follicles. give us a call and we can do the evaluation for you to see if you would be a good candidate. >> thank you so much. great information.

9:33 am
property from a homeowner who had a family member pass away or rental property that just is unwanted. >> sometimes you inherit that type of home that this has not been updated in 50 years. what am i going to do, is this going to cost me a ridiculous amount of money to fix. we could give that to you, you can give us cash for that home and then you do what with it? >> well, typically what i do is i do one of two things. i will fix the home up and keep it in my long-term rental portfolio or fix it up, put it back on the market for resale to a home buyer. it's a win-win situation for everyone. i like to work with these home sellers because i get to help them out of a bad situation. >> these are for people that it's not necessarily your typical home sale but in the sense of you want to either get out of it fast or it's just way beyond your reach to be able to fix it, we give it to you and you do your magic. >> that's exactly right. >> awesome. does the seller end up paying a real estate commission on this? >> the homes i buy there is no
9:34 am
>> i also pay ordinary seller closing costs at close of escrow. >> no kidding. >> this is an as is transaction. so you know we're helping sellers who may not have the funds to obviously repair these properties. and so there is no fix ups, there is no repairs to be done, it's as is. and i'll come in and purchase the home and help the homeowner make an easy transition out of the property. >> you're the one getting yourhands dirty. >> that's right. >> which is better than me. how fast can this happen? let's say we have a property, we hands. how soon can we get it done? >> i purchased homes as quickly as three days before with cash. wow. and have the cash thing and not have to wait for escrow and all the things that can tie up something of a sale of this magnitude. if you try to get a mortgage they're going to say you have to fix this, this and this before we put our name to it. >> that's right. most buyers are unwilling or unable to purchase homes like
9:35 am
so you know it's necessary to sell to a cash buyer like myself because we're did only ones who can afford to buy those and do the repairs. when a home buyer can't get the loan on their and they can't afford those pick fix up costs. >> say we're in the situation right now, wondering if our home is worthy or unworthy for you to take off our hands how do we find out? >> it's simple. i have a three step process. give me office a call for 24-hour no obligation cash offer, and what we'll do is take a look at the property, evaluate it. step two is we come to an agreeable purchase price. we sign a purchase agreement. step three we go to title a closing. we want to make it as smooth a transition for that homeowner as possible, because a lot of homeowners are in a situation where they're not able to -- they're in a rush. they need -- they don't have time. they just need to be out of the
