Jack KudronI’m originally from Massachusetts and moved to South Florida when I was 19.  I worked full time while putting myself through college, graduating from Florida Atlantic University with a degree in Marketing.

I’ve been investing in real estate for the past 30 years.  I started at the age of 21 with a 1/3 investment in a house in South Florida. We sold the house and split the $21,000 profit 3 ways, each receiving $7,000.

I then started buying properties on my own. I couldn’t afford a lot back then, so I moved into them, sleeping on the floors and using a cooler as my refrigerator.  I sold one house at a time, increasing my net worth over time.

Beginning in 1986, I moved 8 times within a 6-month period, selling the homes while I lived in them, until I could finally afford to buy a condo on the beach.  Read More→
