Have you ever been captivated by house-flipping programs like those found on the HGTV channel?

Maybe it's one of these shows that encouraged you go to out and flip houses for yourself.

In order to help you gain a more grounded perspective, the Utah REIA is excited to announce that John Maxim, a master in flipping houses (especially in volume), will be providing us with the following presentation at the September Networking Luncheon:  "Scary Stories: On risk, loss, and how flipping houses is nothing like HGTV".

During this presentation, John will discuss:
  • Fear and Real Estate Investing
  • Control fear or give fear control
  • The beauty of screwing things up
  • You will lose, embrace it
  • High Volume House flipping strategies

At an early age in Portland Oregon John learned how easy it was to win at Monopoly if you could play as the banker and cheat. This might have had something to do with how John ended up being a Real Estate Investor, but probably not since even after he bought his first house and rented it to all his friends he still thought he wanted to be an entomologist when he grew up.  Now a days, when you spend time with John you will mostly get to hear him complain about what monsters his 4 kids are… why his wife made him sleep on the couch the night before…  and how he can’t find his keys.  Be careful, he still cheats at Monopoly.

John has had and continues to have many great adventures in real estate.  It started buying his first house when he was 21 and renting it to 9 other bachelors so he could live off the rent and not have a job (unless you consider donating plasma a job). Since, John has fumbled through a lot of investor type stuff, his resume reads something like this— closed hundreds of retail real estate transactions as agent, originated 50ish loans as a loan officer, built a few dozen spec homes, flipped a few houses, shook in the fetal position during the "great recession", got something like 19 foreclosures on his credit, lit a car on fire, negotiated hundreds of loan modifications post crash, picked up some rental property along the way, obtained a brokers license and started his own brokerage, Tree Fort Realty, flipped and wholesaled hundreds of houses, started a property management company, Rhino Property Management that manages nearly 400 doors, and in 2019 currently maintains a flip inventory of between 30 and 50 homes at once.
