I am a crazy person, oh wait, I mean entrepreneur. I like to start businesses, work on projects, and make money. What I really like is to spend time with my family, spend time outdoors, hunt, eat BBQ, travel, and hang out with people. That’s really me in a nutshell. I use this blog to share my experiences. I will share my travels, successes and most importantly my mistakes. I don’t believe in hype or fluff. I have made money in business, and I have lost it. I have been on cloud nine, and flat on my back. I hope to share with you what I have learned, and where I am going now.
Here is everything else about me:
Who am I? I am a simple man from Texas that has been successful in little bitty houses in Dallas, and boardrooms in Manhattan. The smallest deal I’ve ever done was a $3,000 house in Dallas – but I’ve been a part of a $230,000,000 transaction too.
I am have started and sold companies like the REI Expo (now Think Realty Expo), Blackstone’s B2R Finance (now Finance of America Commercial), and most recently 3L Finance. I have always tried to be on the leading edge of the real estate investor space for over a decade, founding the REI Expo and previously serving as Managing Director for Blackstone’s B2R Finance and Franchisee & Development Agent for HomeVestors® of America. I have acquired more than 1,500 single-family investment properties and completed more than $1 billion in real estate transactions, predominately in the North Texas area.
I have been blessed to have some great people help me and guide me through my career, and I hope to do the same for others.
