Hugh became interested in real estate investing after he lived through 9/11 in New York City. At that time, Hugh was the youngest director of technology for Getty Images and was the first person to take pictures of the 9/11 scene that day that went out to every major newspaper. He watched people go to work with hopes and dreams and they never got a chance to fulfill them. At that moment, he realized that he had to make a change. Hugh found real estate investing in 2003 and fired his boss in 2005 to become a full time real estate investor. He started investing in single family homes but now specializes in buying properties in bulk, creative financing solutions and raising capital.

Three of his favorite transactions so far are…

Private Placement Memorandum where he and his team raised $2,300,000 to acquire 97 properties (over 100 doors) that were valued at over $4,500,000. Investors in this investment have already been paid over $500,000 in distributions from the PPM. The goal is to own the entire portfolio free and clear by the end of 2018.

Hugh organized a group of investors to buy a $1,500,000 59 unit portfolio with only $1,000 down and no credit need. This portfolio including a 20 Unit Building, a 16 unit This deal was sold in 2016 and the investors got to split a check for over $280,000.

Hugh was a trend setter back in 2013 when he started renting out his condo in New York City (pre-Airbnb) when he would travel to train investors in other markets across the United States. Hugh fully believes in the NEW shared economy model and has started acquiring Airbnb properties to add to his portfolio in 2017 and will continue in 2018.

Hugh manages a large team of real estate investors and entrepreneurs across the country and in Canada. He is very proud of his students and enjoys seeing and hearing about their success. Hugh is especially proud of all of the military veterans that he has been able to train and help over the years, this includes all four branches of the military and the coast guard. Hugh’s students know that he is a wealth of knowledge and is always looking for different and more creative ways to invest in real estate. If you have a unique deal then he is always open to discussing it and finding the best solution to maximize the ROI for you.
