kicked off life insurance awareness month. it's something danica patrick revved up support for. we want to dig deeper on the product with abe ashton and jordan flake. >> great having you. >> thanks for having us back. jordan flake is with the law group, my brother-in-law, so he's part of the retirement brothers clan. >> part of brotherhood. >> i brought an attorney. i i did it. and luckily i got him to -- i convinced him by the end of the day to give something free. so if you can get an attorney to give something away free, we'll get to that, but first we got to talk about life insurance and estate planning and the whole thing. >> that's incredible. i want to learn your secret. talking about life insurance, we're going to dig deeper about how life insurance applies to women specifically. >> yeah. i'm going to ask a question.
just a percentage. >> 75. >> i would say 70. >> you're both close. it's 80%. so 80% of women outlive their husbands. here is the question for you. by how many years? >> six. >> 12. >> 14. >> wow. >> so that goes to show that life insurance and understanding a surviving spouse, and having a surviving spouse plan is important. right? because talking about pensions being gone, talking about social cu people don't think about that 14-year period. in las vegas we play odds all the time. where a whole city is based on odds. so explain the odds, we understand that i'm probably going to predecease my wife. the odds are 80% that's what's going to happen. and my wife will outlive me by 14 years. she has a 50% chance of living 14 years longer than i do. if i'm sitting down with her and having a discussion on what that looks like, what her income will
that's far away, we're trying to get kids through -- we're trying to get them into college and get them paid for through college, but the point is, you got to have the conversations now. one of those things is life insurance. life insurance can be one of those tools that is utilized to pay for and protect surviving spouse. the other is estate planning. >> and my father passed away four years ago and my mother has been, you know, adjusting and now she is and dealing with much of the reality of what you're talking about. thank you for focusing on women specifically. you have real life examples of situations that women encounter later in life. >> it happens all the time. we do have a lot of people that come in after their spouse died and they don't know anything. they don't know anything about the finances, anything about the income. i had a woman come into my office that said i'm broke, and after digging through a brown paper bag of statements we found a couple hundred thousand
didn't know that her husband had, which was a relief, but doesn't always come out with that happy of an ending. and -- >> honestly what happens is everyone gets -- a lot of people have life insurance but list each other as the beneficiary. if you're a woman who outs her husband and the only beneficiary to policy is the deceased husband, then that becomes a probate asset on your passing. which would trigger the need for a long and expensive court process. >> which is why estate planning is so important. >> exacty. >> with a flawed plan -- >> get in to see an attorney. come in and meet with us for console taste. we don't charge for console taste. we'll go over the beneficiaries, taking into consideration what abe talked about, which is that the woman is more likely to live longer. they deserve it. >> if they have to live with a
>> yes. >> freedom. they earned every year of it. >> come on now. they're going to need other documents, too, power of attorney documents. the first link when the husband and wife are both alive it's easy because the wife can take care of the husband into old age and upon his passing. but who is going to be there for the woman? >> a good example, before your father passed away, there were beneficiaries for one another, and now your mom may say i need a new power of attorney because my husband is gone. i need new beneficiaries and that has to be changed as part of the estate plan. >> i have to tell you the probate process was extremely frustrating for her. and it's a wake-up call for me because it's all about planning ahead, isn't it. >> yeah. >> and getting idea of what i have to encounter down the road. >> a pain in the assets. >> oh. come on.
really, at the end of the day you're giving your loved ones a gift by saying i don't want you to have to go to the -- >> what seems like a hard conversation now turns into a life-long blessing later on. >> it's about peace of mind. it really is. i'm an attorney, and we take our fair share of terribly undeserved jokes. >> one of them -- >> 100% undeserved, but i like to say i'm in the peace of mind business. and i think abe would say the when people meet with us, we want to sit across from them, take whatever situation is on their plate, you know, concerns if my husband passes away before me i'm not sure i can trust my children to use this money in the way i want them to use it. this is another consideration. >> we have 15 seconds left. >> the special offer, jordana agreed to give away ten free last will and testaments for the first ten callers. >> that's a miracle. >> and if people have gentlemens
office, and we'll talk about the insurance questions and get people to jordan's office who want to take advantage of something free from an attorney. >> wow. >> next ten callers. >> the number is right there. >> and there is the e-mail, as well, if you have questions. there we go. people can e-mail you questions, if you would like to. there is e-mail on the screen. if you like more information on ashton strobelt and you would like to take advantage of that offer, the first ten people that call the number, you're going to testament, free from an attorney. never hear that again.

been in headlines recently. i'm hoping to bring that magic to life in the world of notorious. >> the show general raised a lot of excitement when it previewed in may. what feedback have you been getting from other people? >> one of the things that i've been hearing that's so interesting is the show is about how behind the scenes, my character uses the relationship she has with attorney, jay geragos, how she uses the relationship to get celebrity clients on her show. and to tell their stories. she tells them in a certain angle for the court of public opinion. a lot of people have been talking to us about you know, it's so interesting to see behind the curtain of what is happening when you turn on your television and your 24-hour news who is choosing the stories you hear and what angle are they
think. >> they are. the show is being called a drama, but it's a little spicier than that, am i right? >> right. >> that's definitely true. and if it was all serious, you know, it wouldn't -- i think it might turn viewers off. if you are almost making somebody cry in one moment, the next thing you better do is tickle them a little bit. so i think our show does a really good job of, you delivering drama and using regular bouts of laughter. >> the last role you played on tv was an fbi agent. are you enjoying playing a well known criminal defense attorney now? >> yes, it's amazing. the two roles couldn't be more different. as much as i love my cast mates on graceland this is amazing. working with piper has been audrey. we have an amazing cast of
us, all of which give moments to shine. so yes, it's been wonderful. >> thank you. piper we're looking forward to it tonight. jay august knows everybody. >> we love him. >> he's a great human being and very focused actor from a young age. thank you. i'll be >> thanks so much. >> watch the premier of notorious tonight at 9:00 right here on abc channel 13. it's right after grey's anatomy. just head to your website on the screen for a preview. thank you so much. might not be sweater weather just yet but the temperatures are going to drop. we're looking at 50s for the morning low relatively soon. unfortunately many kids in the valley are not prepared for it.

>> absolutely. and we thank tropical smoothie cafe for making it happen. let's talk about the kids that you've seen in need, the kids getting the jackets. what kind of situations are they in? why is the need there? >> well, i'll tell you a story from last year. there was a young man with his mom shopping for one of the coats that in the distribution. >> i like the fact that you said shopping, not hey, here is a coat, goodbye. >> they pick the coat. he tried on thi the great big smile on his face and his mother started crying. it was a dress coat, looked like it was probably his first and that it it off. >> and really the need is there because these kids grow so fast, they grow out of jackets. and you know, to plunk down 50, $80 or more. >> a lot of money. >> definitely a need. if you have a -- say it was a coat that your kid might have worn a few times, didn't really -- perfect condition.

cause close to his heart, afib. he is joined by dr. james reiffel, the cardiac specialist. great having both of you. thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having us. >> before we get into afib we have to talk basketball. jerry, let's talk about the golden state warriors. i know you're part of the executive board. things are looking pretty rosie right now for the organization, aren't they. great years. last year even though we had a disappointing ending in the finals, we thought we were pretty good shape, but to cleveland's credit they came back and won the championship. but record breaking year. 73 wins, which is really hard to believe when you think about the dedication, the teamwork to do that. and this summer we added -- we
free agent of kevin durand. and we're excited to see them with our younger players. we have a very young core of players. we think we had a great draft this year. this team is well positioned going forward. if we can keep all of our players obviously free agency is a danger and we're hopeful we can convince our players to stay. >> congratulations on the success so far and best of luck going forward. let's talk about afib. i think we all hear it in tv commercials. i don't think there is a lot of understanding about what afib is. you have been living with it for over 20 years. what is afib and what's it like living with it? >> well, you know, i think most important thing is obviously to be diagnosed with it, you know. i felt so out of sort. i think being an athlete, you know something is wrong when you feel like you're just racing, you go to bed at night, you wake up and you're dead tired.
accustomed to. the doctors looked at me and they indicated to me that i had afib. and i said what in the world is that? and they said it's a heart disease. and i said heart disease? i said i always feel so good, and i said i didn't get tired until now, and i'm an a type personality. and the pressure that you put on yourself, the effort to -- it takes to maintain a basketball team as an executive, these certainly contributed to my the thing that he said to me, we're going to have to start medicating you. and, of course, blood thinner was a start. it was warfarin, a drug that has been around for a long time. and i took it for a long time, had to go to the doctor, monitor myself all the time. and there are some issues with it that bothered me, frankly, because i travel so much, and i wasn't able to always eat the right thing. certain kind of vegetables, and
didn't want to have to go back in and have my blood tested. i used to go in every six weeks, or every three months, and sometimes it wasn't convenient for me to do that. so you know, being the inquisitive person i am, i started to try to find out more information about these new age drugs, and i talked to my doctor and we changed. i started taking zeralto. i'm here to deliver a message about i think advantage of me of taking zeralto as compared to warfarin. if people want to find out more about my story they can go to my afib choice.com. and that's my afib choice.com. it tells you about my story. the doctor has a lot better and -- and professional opinion than i do, that's for sure. >> doctor to, let's talk about this. we have 30 seconds.
prevented when we're at risk for afib. >> well, if we have afib, the best way to prevent stroke, which is the most serious consequence is with the use of anti-company abie awe plant, blood thinners. for 60 years we used warfarin, and it's difficult to use. the dose varies constantly. other medication interactions, it's a new since. now we got four new blood thinners, in the last five or six on is zeralto. it works very effectively. and it makes a big change in the life of patients in the favorable way. so the best way to prevent this stroke is to use reliable use that you as the patient are willing to take, and this is one of them. >> absolutely. well it's great information. i think we all know a little bit more about afib now. if we have any questions we can obviously ask our doctor.
and continued success with the warriors. >> thank you. >> to learn more about how the treatment and prevention of afib can affect your life, visit my afib choice.com. you can watch this segment on our website at vegasmorningblend.com. hi, shawn. now it's time for your senior care moment, sponsored by the spotlight senior services guide. did you know people with a genetic risk f disease may be able to head off the disease with you through exercise. they can literally walk away from alzheimer's. do so with the annual alzheimer's association walk to end alzheimer's support and research. it is our city's largest event to raise awareness for funds for alzheimer's care. the walk to end alzheimer's will be held saturday, october 8th at town square. registration starts at 7:00 a.m. the walk begins at 9:00 a.m.

>> again, the homes that i buy generally need thousands of dollars of repairs and the seller can't complete them. >> a type of stuff that might not pass inspection? >> right. an investor like myself is the only one who can come in afford to buy the homes, fix them up, put them back on the market for sale. getting a loan for these types of properties is challenging if not impossible. most homebuyers don't want to buy the homes and they interest today. that's where a real estate beneficial to come in and buy the home for cash. >> you do go in there and fix it up? >> yes. >> you have the money, you don't have to worry about the lender saying you have to get this, this and this fixed, you are just paying in cash so you can take care of it on your own. >> that's exactly right. >> does the seller have to pay real estate commission? >> there is no real estate commissions on the homes that i buy, and i pay all the seller closing costs, as well. >> it's just a two party purchase at that point? >> there we go.
property? there is a lot people that need it like yesterday. >> right. i've actually purchased homes in three days before. >> no kidding. might not always be three days, but what's the average? >> well, really depends on every situation. every seller, every home is unique. but if theeler does need to close quickly, i do hi have the ability to do so. it's based on the seller's situation, not mine. we make sure we're answering the needs of the sellers. >> of course. if a h now and wondering whether or not they should sell, perhaps sell the home for cash, what's the process? how do they get the ball rolling? >> the best way is to call my office for a no obligation cash offer. i have a three step process. the first step is just give me a call at my office, and we'll do an evaluation, make you a cash offer. the second step is to agree upon a purchase price, sign a purchase agreement, and the third step is then go ahead and close the sale at a third party
can get your cash profit. that's important because a lot of homeowners might be afraid that they're not going to get the cash, so everything is done through a title and escrow company. and they're insured to get their cash profits. >> the typical purchase without signing the mortgage stuff. >> that's right. >> i can assume that the homeowners that are using the program are pretty thankful this exists. if you need it yesterday, trying to sell it the method that can take a long time. >> it can. you know, one situation we had a gentleman who had cancer, and he needed to move very quickly back to chicago in order to go through his treatment. and the home was in disrepair. he had a lot of belongings in the property. and you know, i told him i said we can make this very easy for you. we'll buy your home. we don't care about the condition. you don't have to make any fix ups, no repairs, and we'll give you the cash. we did close that one in three days. >> wow.
his treatment. he left all the belongings that he didn't want. i told him leave all the belongings you do not want in the property, and that way we'll go ahead and take care of them for you, and he was able to take what he wanted, leave the rest, and we closed. he's very happy, very happy. we just closed on that property yesterday. >> wow. >> yeah. >> no kidding. you already have the dumpster. >> we closed on the sale. we fixed it up, put it back. it's already closed. >> oh, wow. you're >> same here. thank you. >> if you want to sale your home for cash lathe that sad as i your guy. you can call for a guaranteed quick and easy no obligation 24-hour cash offer. his website is listed right there. j.j., over to you. thanks, shawn. do you know someone who truly makes a difference in this community? you can recognize them with our "give back just head to vegasmorningblend.com, click on
