Justin Colby is the Co-Founder and President of The Science of Flipping, Omni Investment Group, and Phoenix Wealth Builders. The Science of Flipping is a free Podcast on iTunes, Omni and PWB are both professional real estate investment companies specializing in the purchase, rehab, and flipping of distressed properties in the Metro Phoenix Area.
Justin has been real estate investing since 2007. It was an ironic time to become a real estate investor as the markets were changing and all the conventional rules of real estate investing were being thrown out of the window. He didn’t start out in real estate as an investor, in fact, he first cut his teeth in real estate in 2005 when he became an agent and joined his friend in starting a brokerage. To date, he has done over 650 deals and counting.
When Dixie Decker was 18 she bought her first house and rented two of its rooms to her friends, meaning she didn’t have to pay a dime for housing during college. Later, she got married, had two beautiful kids, became a mortgage broker and a realtor, and then the 2008 market crashed in both industries, bringing her 10-year marriage down with it. She had to file for bankruptcy because her husband had secretly opened $100,000 worth of credit cards. Working three jobs just to stay afloat, she missed her two girls at home who she had to care for alone. She needed freedom and hated not chasing her dreams!
After two years in corporate America, she ran into her middle school best friend and he brought her in on a new student housing business. When her mentor gave her a unique buying method where she could use other people’s money and credit, they very quickly had six rehab projects going on which they rented as off-campus student housing.
In addition to creating a niche market, Dixie and her business partner revolutionized the profit making potential of rental properties. Using per-room rental rates, they were able to collect multiple checks from one house, while the neighboring landlords collect one. An incredible benefit this provides is they can pay close to market value when buying and then have cash flow that is double and sometimes triple the average investor’s single family rental cash flow. By using lease options she learned her business could do many more rehab projects simultaneously and start earning more money faster.
In just three years Dixie has raised over $5 million in private money. Because of the systems she has in place, her business runs on auto-pilot and, most importantly, she collects over 152 checks each month in the mailbox and has over 40 golden geese with none of her own money in any deal.
