EP125 Overcoming Tragedy and Bankruptcy and Surviving the House from Hell with Jeremy Garcia and Melanie Hall
Jeremy Garcia and Melanie Hall's path to real estate investing is very different than what you might expect from two successful entrepreneurs. Both have had to overcome the self-doubt and lack of confidence that many of us experience when starting down this road, but Melanie also faced tragedy and bankruptcy along the way.
Today they share their stories of working through that initial bankruptcy with the help of credit restoration companies and the RPOA, the House-Hack that made a $70,000 profit, and the house from hell that the city told them was on fire.
Jeremy also runs us through the numbers he looks for when making an investment and tells us about the police report he just filed on a contractor who was making unauthorized charges on his Home Depot credit card. Melanie explains why color is so important to making their homes feel inviting, and we discuss the purchasing power of women and why all rehabs should be done with them in mind.
This is a great episode to get to know two very interesting RPOA members and hear their true story. Jeremy also owns a landscaping company, and if you'd like to learn more about his services you can contact him through email:
