Around year 2004 that he stumbled his way through a short sale and made over $30,000 on that first short sale deal!

He soon became known as the local “go-to” guy for doing short sales. After discovering a loophole in the short sale submission process he partnered to create a short sale software that grew to over 5000 users.
