Basic life training is a private,
client-only consulting and marketing firm.

We specialize in strategic assistance to rural retreat property buyers and sellers in the Cumberland Plateau area of the Appalachian Redoubt. BLT is not a licensed real estate brokerage firm in any state nor are we attorneys, financial advisors or Realtors.

Basic Life Training selects its clients through a screening process, which is detailed here.  We qualify potential clients based on three criteria: character, background and financial worthiness.  Our experience and skills are specific to a series of professional real estate transactions and generally restricted to one area of the Appalachian Redoubt – the Cumberland Plateau. 

As such, we have limited resources which we deploy to clients on a one-on-one basis. We welcome all serious inquiries, but recognize that our time must be devoted to pre-paid consulting clients who are firmly committed to a sale or purchase.  We strongly recommend that you do some general research about sustainable retreat or remote properties before you contact us with your specific needs.

First, make sure to read all about selecting retreat properties on our blog. 

After you have a basic understanding of the task before you, you're fully prepared to take advantage of the expertise that BLT can offer you in your endeavors. Select a button below to fill out the appropriate form — After our prospect interview process, BLT can undertake engagements for a flat fee. 

Specifics of Client Qualification

Basic Life Training qualifies potential clients based upon three criteria; character, general background, and financial worthiness.  Accordingly, we ask that prospective clients read and agree with our character guidelines. The guidelines are not to discriminate but to ensure that both parties are a good fit for a prosperous working relationship and the ultimate success of our journey together.

1.  We’ll tolerate zero discrimination towards any race, religion, group or party as protected under HUD guidelines. We will not work with those that are intolerant of others. Political viewpoints are excluded.

2. We ask that you avoid vocalizing any negativity about our current government or violence towards anyone in office. We aim to focus on the goal we are hired to complete.

3. BLT agrees to be respectful, attentive listeners. We reserve the right to refuse or discontinue consulting services to anyone who does not reciprocate.

Confidentiality & Client Preparation

In order to maintain confidentiality of our clients’ personal information, BLT serves as the qualifier and “buffer” between the interested parties on properties until such time as there is a mutually-agreed upon (buyer and seller) appointment for the client’s on-site inspection. The one aspect of your retreat property purchase that may expose a client the most is the actual purchase and acquisition of the property.  If you have concerns about confidentiality, please let us know them.
