This week’s episode of the Real Estate Investing for Cashflow Podcast features Evie Brooks. Evie is a Real Estate Investment Educator, Keynote Speaker, Investor, Coach, Mentor, Entrepreneur, and former Advanced Trainer for “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, who now specializes in “All Things Panama”, including real estate and organic agriculture investments. With over 24 years of real estate investment experience, she’s educated and guided thousands of investors through the process of locating, evaluating, and analyzing transactions for cash flow and ROI (Return on Investment) in 13+ countries and 30+ states in the United States.
During the global pandemic, Evie continues to close deals every week, primarily due to the soaring demand for organic smart farming investments in Panama, where 85% of the food is imported.
“After watching and seeing a lot of investors really happy with the returns that they were seeing on this, I was like this is a really good opportunity because food is going to become more and more in demand and airable land is becoming less and less available, and therefore creating a higher value for that land.”
“Co-op is what most people in the agriculture business know. A co-op is where a big broker that has accounts around the world with go out and find smaller farmers collectively in places such as Peru that are growing, but they don’t have the connections nor the volume to be able to deal with the big boys (whole foods, etc.) so the broker will come in and co-op with all those small farmers to buy the food from then they will ship it and carry it out to the rest of the world.”

“Retail was in a world of hurt pre-COVID. Right? We over built retail in this country. That’s just a fact. Now, this recession is different though, than a lot of the historical recessions in that, this is very micro-market. Even property level specific.”
“We invested in a shopping center transaction in Florida, and we were projecting double digit cash on cash returns in the first yea. This is a closed investment, not an open investment. But I think there is opportunity in retail because of the fear, but you have to be a very good operator and you have to have very very localized knowledge. We’re not afraid of retail with the right operator and the right knowledge.”
