A self confessed Real Estate Addict and "House Whisperer". I got my first "fix" at age 12 when I helped my father build our family house, I was hooked. It was like playing life sized legos, I needed to know everything of this.
For my 15th birthday my gift from my mother was approval to go work for a roofer, I had been pleading with her for almost a year. I spent the next 10 years learning everything I could of a trade, mastering proficiency and moving to the next; roofing to HVAC, to siding, to masonry, to framing, trim carpentry, cabinetry and on and on.
I had built a impressive career and posting in construction and in the housing turn of 2007 was presented with the opportunity to re purpose old dilapidated homes into rent ready duplex's, I jumped on the opportunity of the challenge and hence began my REI road.
Next came flips, which lead to ever increasing challenges as I gained the reputation as the "guy with the eye" and the can do contractor. All my years in so many trades gained a unique insight into buyers valuation, knowing what improvements returned the best and those that did not. I grew in the field until achieving the flip pinnacle; rehabbing commercial residential, flipping on volume in a 27 day window, it was exciting.
REI was a natural progression of my obsession with construction, Real Estate and business.
I started doing my own private investing in 2009. Today I enjoy growing and ever improving my experiences, skills, capabilities, networks and partnerships.
