How does one go from getting lucky with a few real estate investment deals in 2006 to taking “a punch in the teeth” in ‘07 and ‘08 to flipping over 600 properties to date? What is the secret to this man’s success? Our guest today is Matt Owens, CEO of OCG Properties, LLC. According to this former CPA and UCSB graduate, the answer is education and experience, coupled with the importance of networking and relationships. Matt explains his unique perspective in how losing money is what “compounded his growth exponentially forward.” He has observed that “if you haven’t taken a hit, you haven’t been in the game long enough.” What an inspiring thought to ponder on! Matt is based in Southern California but invests primarily in Memphis, TN and Atlanta, GA specializing in equity and cash flowing real estate investments. He also invests in value add multi-families, promissory notes, seller financing for his international clients, self storage units, mobile home parks and the list just goes on!

  • The importance of networking and relationship building and why this business is ALL about these relationships
