Do you want to invest in real estate in order to create a better life for your family?
Today’s episode gives you the opportunity to listen to someone who’s done it. What are the steps needed to reach that milestone, and what type of life can you expect after you’ve reached your goal? J Scott is a great example of someone who that vision and then MADE IT HAPPEN!
J’s story is very interesting because he made it happen along side his wife. They were both high earners but they didn’t want to work for someone else. The two of them working side by side has help accelerate their business in a short period of time. Their complimentary skill sets and dedication to systems has been key. They’ve scaled an amazing flipping business and are now adding more rentals to their portfolio.
J Scott is a full-time real estate investor and rehabber currently living in the suburbs of Washington, DC (formerly living and investing in Atlanta, GA). He is originally from the East Coast, and until Spring of 2008, he resided in Silicon Valley (California), where he spent many years in management at several Fortune 500 companies.
In 2008, J and his wife decided to leave the 80-hour work weeks and the constant business travel behind. They quit their corporate jobs, moved back East, started a family and decided to try something new. That something new ended up being real estate, and eight years later, they’ve built a successful business doing everything from flipping houses to building new construction to lending/partnering to building a rental portfolio.
Since 2008, J and his wife have rehabbed over 200 of their own houses for millions of dollars in profits, and have mentored and assisted other investors in rehabbing hundreds more properties. These days, the team is focusing on larger new-construction projects and partnership opportunities with other investors. J is the author of two books, including the best-selling, “The Book on Flipping Houses” and has detailed his real estate adventure on his blog, 123Flip.com, where he discusses all his team’s triumphs, failures and results — including all the nitty-gritty financial details of the business.”
