Real Estate Gurus Blast from the Past

I ran across these videos from late night guru Tommy Vu. These are pretty funny if you got some a bit of time on your hands.

Some of the quotes he was famous for:

  • “Are you man enough to get off your lazy American ass and go to Vu’s seminars?”
  • “A lot of your friends will tell you, ‘Don’t come to the seminar. It’s a get-rich-quick plan.’ Well, tell them, it is a get-rich-quick plan because life is too short to get rich slow.”
  • “Tom Vu says his system is different than other experts’.”
  • “Okay. You’ve seen me make a lot of money. You’ve seen my students who are average people make a lot of money. Isn’t it about time for you to go out and make a lot of money?”
  • “Don’t say someday you will do it. Someday may never come. Come to my free 90-minute seminar now.”
  • “There’s two kinds of work in America: hard work and smart work. Which one are you doing now?”
  • “This is not a country club! This is my house!”
  • “Are you afraid to ask your Boss for the day off to come to my seminar? Well then you don’t deserve to be rich”
  • “Today I’m gonna show you how to drive a sports car. First, you need a lot of money!”
  • “Don’t listen to your friends. They’re losers!”
  • “Do you think these girls like me? NO, they like my money!”

In the early 1990’s I guess he got investigated by the Florida attorney general and never aired his infomercials again.

He was hocking Las Vegas condos in 2006 and 2007 and now is a ‘semi-professional’ poker player with nearly 1.5 million in winnings.

    “Let me tell you how i learned the secret…I walk over to this nice old man, i give some water and I say, ‘sir i’m giving you some water, would you tell me how to be rich like you sir’ “

    Oh and I always wondered if it was the same guy as the pocker player, thanks for clearing that up.

    This is a great blog. I remembered watching and laughling like crazy. I was wondering what has real estate to do with girls in bikini in the background.
