MJA Real Estate

Real Estate strategies and investment coaching.

Matthew J. Atkinson, President & Coach

Mathew J. Atkinson started his career in real estate over 10 years ago and has been investing for over 9 years. He has accumulated 25,500 hours of real estate experience–nearly 7 years round the clock. Matt has also personally invested 1.25 million dollars in rehabbing properties. In the last 36 months, Matt has coached and educated over 200 investors through his mentoring programs and workshops. He has turned this background into a proven, comprehensive system for real estate investing.

Initially, he brought his years of telecommunications sales experience to the real estate finance industry. Matt is now a partner with Flagship Financial Partners, a division of Flagship Financial Group and he specializes in national VA mortgage lending. He has closed on over 16 million dollars in transactions.

Working in real property finance for over a decade, Matt has successfully navigated numerous economic cycles. He has seen first hand markets rise and fall and homeowners in every financial condition. He soon realized that strategies have to fluctuate just like the markets do. Matt then began to utilize this knowledge to invest in real estate himself.

Matt purchased his first investment property in 2004, a single-family home through a short sale, which is rental unit he still owns today. However, he also over-improved the property, put too much money into it and mismanaged his tenants. He learned the struggles of having a full-time job and being a landlord. This did not deter him. He continued purchasing rental units and then hired a property management company. He learned how to effectively utilize other industry professionals to increase his profitability. Matt then became addicted and now owns over 50 rental properties personally and with partners.

He also has extensive experience in flipping properties. After making only $500 on his first project, he reevaluated the strategies others were using. He learned how to effectively buy the property, get the most bang for his buck during the remodel and how to price the home for the quickest and most profitable return.

Through trial and error, success and failure, Matt has not only learned the ropes of real estate investing, but created new, proven strategies. And he has helped many others have the same success. After 18 months developing his mentoring program, he now shares his experience and strategies with select clients helping them create the same success!
