Darren Light

A mechanical engineer by trade, I quickly realized that my W-2 job and 401K would not support the current and retirement lifestyle that I wanted. At the convincing by a friend I attended one of the guru seminars, here locally in Knoxville. I started purchasing single family rentals and doing flips 4 months after attending the seminar. In April of 2017 I was laid of from my corporate job of 12 years. At that moment I went all in to real estate investing by cashing in my 401K and stock options. In November of 2017 I attended the very first Jake n Gino live event in Knoxville. During the first day of the event I made the decision to focus on multifamily assets and sell all of my single family rentals. But I also still enjoy flipping houses. To date I have done 13 flips in 2 years. My goal for flips in 2019 was 12. I am currently at 6 in various stages.

Since October of 2018 I have become part owner on the GP side in 103 doors. One of my partners and I are currently pursuing over another 200 doors as we speak. I started a Multifamily meetup in Johnson City, TN in March of this year. With Johnson City being such a great market, I saw a need to bring other multifamily investors together there, to leverage the power of partnerships, the market, and capital.I thrive on inspiring and motivating others and living the Go-Giver attitude! I live each day with gratitude.
