Where Real Estate Investors & Landlords Find Success

EP338 From a Three-Unit House Hack to Three Startup Businesses That Are Transforming a Neighborhood With Jon Frantz

My guest today is a local real estate investor and entrepreneur. Jon Frantz is not only an expert in business finance and development, capital raising, property management and operations, he’s also transforming the Alger Heights neighborhood with several businesses, including Top to Bottom Cleaning Group, Urban Jonny’s Salon, and the new and exciting SIP Coffee & Cocktails.

Jon shares his early sales experience with Cutco Knives and the importance of that training. He also talks about his first house-hacked 3-unit, and how he had to sell his car in order to buy it.

We also dig into the differences between investing in real estate and starting a business, the importance of partnership, and the biggest mistakes he sees new entrepreneurs make.
