Hello! My name is Robert Allen. I’m the author of two of the largest selling financial books in history; Nothing Down and Creating Wealth, both New York Times best sellers — read by millions of people in the past 20 years. My other best-selling books include Multiple Streams of Income, and my current Mega-Best-Seller, Cracking The Millionaire Code co-authored by Mark Victor Hansen. I’ve helped thousands of people, from various countries and cir stances achieve financial freedom. Now its your turn.
Over the years I’ve learned to care less and less about what people say and more and more about what they do. I’m a big believer in proof. When there’s so much hype these days, you can never get enough proof… Because results are results, period.

A few days later, the front page of the Los Angeles Times business section carried the following headline: "Buying Home without Cash: Boastful Investor Accepts Time Challenge-and Wins."
The long detailed article chronicled the entire nothing down story from 6 a.m. Monday until 5:15 P.M. Wednesday. I had done it!
Yes, the strategies and techniques I described in my best-selling book "Nothing Down" really work! But still the experts and skeptics refused to be convinced. I then appeared on a television show in Houston. After explaining my story, the host said with a sneer, "Yeah, you proved you could do it. But I doubt one of our average viewers could do it."
