Hosted by: Leland von Syring - President of Charter Financial
Born in San Antonio, Texas and a graduate of Texas State University at San Marcos (then known as Southwest Texas State University), Leland began his career in the restaurant industry and eventually worked his way up to owning two restaurants in Houston, Texas. After years in the restaurant industry, Leland searched for "the perfect" business that allowed for more flexibility along with excellent income potential. He found that opportunity when a friend suggested he consider buying privately held notes. After briefly researching the industry potential, Leland began working the business and found immediate success. Within 9 months of starting his new business on a part time level, he sold his restaurants and began working the note business on a full time basis. Eager to learn as much as possible, Leland made it a point to read everything he could find on the subject and also attended note conventions and seminars around the country. Armed with a growing knowledge of the note business and a desire to increase business, Leland created the "Building Wealth Together" program. This program was designed to teach individuals how to locate note holders so that Charter Financial could purchase their notes. This program has been a huge success not only for all Charter Financial associates but for the company as well. Leland has grown the company from a one man operation to being a national leader in the note industry with offices in 5 states with over 25 employees. Leland is still active in the company and enjoys speaking with and training his associates. Leland is most proud of the fact that that he is able to help individuals reach their earnings potential, changing their lives for the better. He also takes pride in the fact that his company is consistently recognized as a leader in the industry and annually recognized by the Houston Better Business Bureau as one of its outstanding members.

Leland von Syring, Founder and President of Charter Financial in Houston, was a successful restaurateur when he learned about the cash flow industry. Tired of working long hours and weekends, Leland searched for an opportunity that would allow him to have more quality time with his family. A friend suggested that he consider buying and selling privately held mortgages because it doesn't require "a lot of hours" and "the commissions are excellent." Excited about this wonderful new opportunity, Leland thought he would give it a try and immediately researched the note business, located a couple of investors, and began marketing the business by placing a classified ad in his local newspaper. The results were amazing! He immediately located two note holders within the first two weeks and made commissions equaling $5,400 the first month (only working about two hours a week), while still running his restaurants. Realizing that he had stumbled upon something with great potential, he quickly began placing more ads in different newspapers around his area, sought out new note buyers, and began the transition to sell his restaurants. Within 9 months from starting his note brokering business, Leland sold his restaurants and began working in the note business full time. Driven by his entrepreneurial spirit, he wanted to expand his company and increase his earnings. He began advertising for notes in papers across the country and expanded his business to include the purchasing of structured court settlements, lottery winnings, and business notes. He also secured lines of credit to purchase the notes on his own. Business was doing so well that he had to hire a couple of assistants to help with the processing of his transactions. Soon after he began his new business, he attended his first note convention and came away with a clear vision of where he wanted his company to be and how he wanted to get there. He wanted to grow into the nation's largest buyer of privately held notes. The only way he could accomplish this was to incorporate brokers into his company. At that time, the industry was just starting out and there were only a few individuals teaching the business. These individuals charged thousands of dollars for seminars and home study courses and most people couldn't afford to spend that kind of money to learn the business. Leland knew there was a better way. Having worked the business for several years, Leland had acquired great knowledge about the industry and decided that he would write his own training manual and recruit his own brokers. He gave much thought to writing the manual, wanting to make it easy to read, understand, and implement while at the same time including all of the information a starting broker would need in order to be successful. Based on his desire to help as many individuals as possible reach their goals and to help his company reach its goals, he named the new program, "Building Wealth Together". Setting up a corporate structure that would create a win-win relationship for both the broker and Charter Financial was of the utmost importance to Leland. This structure would be set up so that the broker would want to work with his company and would have every opportunity to succeed. The new structure included setting up a valuable broker support "hotline" staffed with experienced note brokers. He also staffed the company with experienced "Contract Buyers" who would work with the brokers by quoting their deals and helping process them. Reluctantly, Leland also knew he would have to charge for the manual because of the costs involved in locating new brokers, setting up the support personnel, and printing the manuals. At the same time, he wanted the brokers to have a real incentive for joining his program. Therefore, he decided to refund the cost of the course to his new associates upon completion of their first transaction. This bonus was to be in addition to their commission. This way he could literally offer his program at no cost to new associates and at the same time, create a sense of loyalty from the new brokers. He took this a step further by adding incentives for his new brokers on their second and third transactions too, so they could use this bonus money to expand their businesses, if they chose to, just as he had done. Offering superior support reached a new level when he developed the CHARTER FINANCIAL ADVANTAGE™. This excellent program allows a new broker the opportunity to have Charter Financial complete a transaction for him, once his client has agreed to an offer. This means that a new broker can focus on locating note holders and sellers, while Charter processes the transactions for him, at no cost. This service is free to all Charter associates and is priceless! With the manual complete and the support staff in place, Leland von Syring and Charter Financial began promoting the "Building Wealth Together" program in 1999. The program was an instant success, and since that time, Charter Financial has experienced phenomenal growth. Today, the organization that once started with one individual and a dream, now consist of offices in 5 states with over 30 employees consisting of broker support, contract buyers, marketing and office personnel. Leland attributes this astounding growth to the relationships that Charter has built with their brokers. He states: "Nothing gives me more satisfaction than hearing the success stories of our associates; it is a great feeling to help people change their lives. Leland goes on to state that he feels very proud when he receives complements from brokers on the excellent support they have received from his staff.
