Greg started in Real Estate as a commercial agent selling business opportunities in 1996 in South
Florida. He became a broker in 2005 and switched to residential sales. Although he had some
"Retail" customers, he focused mainly on helping investors acquire properties below market value.
At one point he found a property for an investor, viewed it, estimated repairs and wrote up the
offer. Then literally called the investor and said you're buying a house. The offer was accepted
and the investor bought it, renovated it with Greg's recommended vendors and trades and sold it
and made $50,000 profit. Greg made $4,500 commission. and decided he was on the wrong side of
these transactions. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
Greg started where most investors do, wholesaling. Which is simply finding deals with enough "meat
on the bone", adding his profit and selling to a landlord or flipper/rehabber. It was around this
time he joined his local REIA and benefited greatly from meeting like minded investors. Even
though he had been "in the business" for 13 years at that point, he learned things about real
estate in the Quick start classes, Master series classes and from speakers at the main monthly
The natural growth process for an investor is to find private lenders or hard money lenders(more
expensive but easier to find) and start to renovate or "Flip" the deals they find instead of
wholesaling them. Greg followed that path and continues to flip houses today. He worked for a
company that was flipping 6 houses a month as acquisitions manager and sales manager then
personally bought, fixed and flipped over 30 houses, using resources and knowledge and lenders, he
found through REIA. Once you have acquired funding sources, and good trades, the next challenge as
a flipper is to find deals. Wholesalers are one option, as are direct mail campaigns, postcards,
cold calling FSBO'S, driving for dollars etc. Another very effective acquisition tool is Tax Deed
Greg is the owner/broker for One Realty Corp, and also owns 2 other Brokerages, Broker Referral
