About Me: 

I am Jeff and my wife is Ronda, she currently is working on her Masters Degree and will finish next May, yeaaaa! We live in Brown County but both work in Bloomington, In, I am self-employed as a handyman and contractor and my wife works at Cook Medical in customer relations.
Real-estate is more my passion but Ronda has seen potential after the three day seminar and is coming on full bore after she completes her degree. I just signed up with PMI Friday and am starting the action items today for step two. At the beginning I was feeling a little overwhelmed as I did not know where to start with all the literature I got but with coaches directing me I'm off and running.
I am looking to get back into flipping homes and now think renting properties along with some possible leases are what I'm currently focusing on. I started developing my power team and already have a few realtors who I know from previous houses I have flipped who are investors as well.

Motorcyclist, reading, genealogy research, cooking, spending time with family, politics, county volunteer, CERT team member, helping veterans anyway we can.

Basic Info

Self-employed handyman and builder, Wife Ronda is customer relations at Cook Medical Group

Hi Mike,

Hope all is well with your investing! I should sign the contract this week on my 4th lease to buy house we flipped, yea!!! My problem is with the leases we have moved them out 3 years so have our monies tied up for awhile and banks aren't much help surprise. Anyway I was wondering about hard money lenders if you knew any. I have a investor partner who used GEA and they took his money but when it came down to the closing he could not get ahold of them anymore so wonders if they were a scam.

Appreciate any info! Jeff
