Hey this is Mark and I’m so happy you’re here! Please allow me to give you a little background on myself and the type of family influences I grew up with…
My Grandfather, Lloyd Walters, invested in his first “fixer-upper” property back in 1937 during the Great Depression in San Jose, California. Since that time, my family has always been passionate about real estate.
My father, Lloyd Walters, was written up in a national publication in 1985 for some revolutionary marketing ideas he shared dealing with discounted mortgages.
The demand was so great to learn more of our techniques that we wrote the first book in the country on marketing for discounted mortgages titled, “How To Find All The Discounted Mortgages You Could Ever Hope To Buy”.
After that books’ release we were inundated with people asking what else we were doing. We then wrote another real estate investing book, which had people requesting more ideas and the big snow ball has never stopped rolling.
By the age of 25, I had my own real estate brokerage. After a few years, and being more interested in the investor side of the business, I closed up shop and have not been an active broker since.
After the savings and loan crisis of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, in 1992 we packed up all our California belongings and moved to Arizona and began buying properties with the intention of riding the market up.
Guess what? The old crystal ball must have been working because over the following years Phoenix became one of the top real estate investing areas in the country.
I still enjoy sharing investing ideas with good people like yourself here.
Would you please do me a favor and share some of the good ideas you find here with others so together we can help make a positive impact on several lives…thanks!
I wish you nothing but good things,
