Currently, Jerry is the managing Broker for Sharp Concepts Realty in Cleveland, OH and Josh’s business partner. The agency has specialized in working with the distressed properties since it opened its doors in 2007. In 2012, Sharp Concepts Realty is expecting to add over 25 real estate agents to their roster. Sharp Concepts is on pace for 500% + growth year over year. Jerry has been investing in real estate since his first rehab property in 1970. He has been active in pre-foreclosure house buying and in buying commercial properties. He has been actively purchasing short sale properties since early 2004. Educated at Northwestern University where he has both a BS and an MBA in Finance, he has always understood the need to continue his education.
Jerry also found that after 2 years of investing in pre-foreclosure houses, he could add an additional revenue stream by becoming a Realtor. This has added credibility when dealing with other BPO agents, appraisers, lenders, buyers, sellers, and Realtors. Jerry is married, has five grown children and four grandkids and loves the time he can spend with family.
John is a Real Estate Investor who has flipped over 150 real estate deals in his 11-year career. He started doing a lot of rehabbing, and then he bought a HUD house for $18.47 and got hooked on wholesaling homes for big profits. Once he tweaked his HUD Buying System and got it running smoothly without him, he created a training program called Wholesaling Mastery, featuring all the tips and tricks he uses daily to wholesale over eight properties a month.
John is the founder of one of the fastest growing real estate brokerages in the country, HomeBackers Realty. His brokerage is very unique, as they only work with buyers. He has developed a system called Buyers on Fire, which has allowed him to build a very responsive buyers list in his own local market of Dayton, Ohio, with 18,000+ retail, cash, rent to own and Investor buyers. He will tell you, “when you have all the buyers in your area, you pretty much own the market and write your own paycheck.” With his real estate investments and his brokerage combined, he is involved with over 30 transactions a month.
He is the Founder of The King of Systems, Buyers on Fire and HUD Wholesaling and is in the process of developing a software call Agentsoft, which he believes will change the way real estate is sold in just a couple of short years.

Millen Atwood was introduced to real estate in high school, while aiding an investor in repairs and updates to his income properties. He started his investment career in 1988 after getting married, acquiring two rehabs and a rental. This was the beginning of his infatuation with real estate. He had the opportunity and privilege to be mentored by a veteran in real estate development of raw land, sales and existing residential properties who taught him creative ways to acquire assets in real property.
Millen learned that resolving the sellers or buyers problem results in a sale or purchase of a property. He is conversant with real estate terms in English and Spanish. In 1996 he made his first investment out of the USA. Millen is a consultant to a real estate development company and its team of advisors, concerning a large $11 million development project. The results are new approaches in sales of properties and existing new construction.
Millen’s experience in acquiring, evaluating and holding residential and commercial properties has resulted in his ability to project profits or losses, tax benefits and appreciation, allowing the profitable acquisition of properties.
He has been mentoring and coaching for the past eight years. He has enjoyed seeing the success of those he mentors, by helping them in their real estate purchases. He is a Certified State Mediator and has used his skills as a mediator to bring about resolutions to conflicts arising in tenant/landlord relations, real estate purchase contracts and rental contracts. His goal is always to help create a win/win resolution for both parties.
Justin has a strong real estate and business background. He began studying real estate investing and soon realized this could be very profitable for his financial future. In 2007 he got into the distressed real estate markets in the Midwest. With the initial collapse of the real estate loan markets, many areas of the country opened up for investors who were ready to take advantage of the deals available, much like the deals available now.
Over the next several years, Justin honed his skills by working with several seasoned Realtors and professionals to learn all the strategies involved to maximize returns. He was able to help many other investors learn how to profit and generate consistent results using the skills he had applied himself.
Justin has been a part of over 350 individual transactions with properties and has helped several investment groups and individual investors reap the benefits of real estate investing. He has learned many of the skills critical in negotiation and contract creation for real estate in order to improve the profitability of his personal business, and to be able to more fully help those with whom he works. He enjoys being able to work regularly with investors and loves to teach and share the knowledge he has gained from his own experience in the real estate markets.
His goal is to be able to help everyone succeed and achieve lasting results. Justin is able to outline specific plans of action so that his clients can follow a clear path to success. He is able to explain complicated procedures in a way that is easy to understand and apply. He loves to see his clients succeed.

“I live about 80 miles south of you Josh. I've met you in person. I've been in your office. So, I know you are really doing this. No smoke!”

Made $78,405 on the HUD plus the $16,000 left in my account that was not used for repairs for a TOTAL PROFIT of $94,409!
“You tell me if Josh’s Coaching was worth it!”
“These guys really have their systems in place. When I left my meeting with Josh and John I knew exactly what to do. They gave me a very specific Step by Step action plan that virtually guarantees my success!"
Keith Allen, student Chicago Ill
“What Josh, John and these guys do best is that nothing is filtered. They are in the trenches. They are doing deals. There’s nothing that can replace that. It’s just a matter of doing what they say and following their system. Their best interest is watching out for my best interest. There is no comparison. There’s these guys and then everything else is just JUNK!!!!”
DK Kim, Attorney & Student Orlando Fla
“I must say I way a bit skeptical about your program, after signing up for so many others that omit critical pieces of information. But your course is the real deal, it covers so much, that I think I'm getting some information indigestion. However, I can live with that, and look forward to scoring some big successes with your coaching. I am also interested in buying through auctions, so any information you
have on this would be very helpful.”
“Josh, our meeting was only 35 minutes long; but you gave more information than most do in 2 hours! Your being pumped up made us pumped up, too! Thanks for your giving spirit!”
“The other good news is that the hedge funds are beginning to sell off their house portfolios because they aren't getting the returns they were expecting from buying up house portfolios and then renting them out.
There will be lots of opportunities for us real estate investors.”
“I am excited to report that I have my first deal under contract! The deal is kind of a 40K flips/Wholesale. Here is what happened. I listed the property For Sale by Owner at only $110,000. I patched some holes in the dry wall, had the house cleaned, had the carpet steam cleaned, and repaired the garage door. Altogether, I'm putting in about $600. I am going to make the difference of the amount paid by the guy at the auction ($69,000) to redeem the property and the list price ($110,000). That's about $40,000 in 1 week!How's that for a 40K Flip!?
I am always amazed at how attentive you are to your students in the 40K flip program. You really care about their success. It shows. Thank you for all that you do."
“Just wanted to say thanks for allowing students from your previous 40KFlips classes to join in on the next round of live classes.
As if the abundance of information you provide in the classes and on the website isn't enough , now this ! To me , you are really going the extra mile to provide more than what I expected to receive when I signed up for the course.I have only been able to catch a couple of the live classes with the July group , so I have been following along with the recorded classes on the site.
Your invite to allow us to join in on the next round gives me the opportunity to sit in on more of the live training.Thank You."

names on my 100 list. Looking forward to Thursday night class. You do an awesome job.”
“For what it’s worth, I’ve used Josh’s conversation starter line “I raise money for real estate deals…” with great success so far.”
“Hi everyone, Dan Taylor here, let me first say that I am also a new student of the 40k Flip system and I'm not affiliated with SREC or any of Josh's companies (so I am not speaking for them), but I have followed his teachings for a few years now and I have talked to his staff on numerous occasions and, speaking from my experience only, they have always been very knowledgeable, professional and upfront with any info they have provided”
“Thanks for a great class! I look forward to becoming a pro!”
“It’s great being part of Josh’s 40k flips program, I recently sold my last rehab/flip property where I make over $70,000.00 at Closing!”

“ I just bought this 3 bed 2 bath 2000 sqft home in Florida build new in 2005 in a Sub of Tampa. for $13,600.00 on an online foreclose auction. I hold tittle in separate cell of my series LLC.

“I did a one month start to finish with bid on HUD home, ..only vested roughly 5 hours of actual work on the home. The best part is I never physically laid eyes on the home! Buyer found using craigslist ad – This is a free service so I had $0 vested in marketing costs. Cash buyer on the deal …Net profits after all costs $14,700”

Kudos to you Sheila!!!Cherely Cousins
“Just wanted to say thank you so much for the guide on how to find Private Money, and what to say. This is HUGE… really valuable information that I have been looking / needing for YEARS. If I had these years ago, I bet I could have found a private investor a LOT sooner.
You guys are awesome! Appreciate the help more than you can imagine.
I was also just about to send you an email asking if you could please go over the private lender presentation with us, so we can see what you say during the presentations.
And then I went into Module 4 and saw you ALREADY INCLUDED IT!!
Holy Crap, you really did think of everything, didn’t you! So Glad, I joined this course
Huge, huge thanks.”

“Wow I am sooooooooo impressed by your prompt reply, so good thanks you guys are really awesome!"
“As a student of one of Josh's Coaching Programs. I strongly recommend
My Coach is Justin Hill, and I would like to publicly brag on him for a
minute! Not only has he been a Coach in The Real Estate Investing Business,
he has been part time Counselor as well! He has been there for all my
"stupid" questions and not once has he made me feel less than because of my
lack of experience. Very patient and kind.
I hope that none of you think that this easy money, get rich quick kind of
stuff! It takes time and work, but I know that the payoffs are going to be
I'm sure that any of Josh's Coaches are as high quality as Justin. You
cannot not go wrong! Think if it as a continuing education. Some of you may
have spent thousands of dollars of a college degree, I know i did, where did
that get you?”
~ Scott, 40k Flips Student
“I feel it a honor to have you as my coach. Without your help these past few months, I can honestly say that I would NOT be where I am now.”
~ Christina Clark, Home Investment Solutions, Inc, Newport News, VA.
“I’m going full speed ahead with your program, learning from the ground up. I see what’s happening now.”

“SREC’s students produce the most profitable results; have access to the most intelligent information available on the subject of short sales, and the highest quality leaders and peers in the nation.”
~ Stephany McFadzean
“I wanted to let you all know how much I appreciated SREC services. The professionalism. Attitudes, support, understanding, creativity, ingenuity, energy, and most of all… passion. I feel very fortunate to be in the Platinum Coaching. I’m a very big FAN of the best organization in real estate investing.”
~ Joe Heffley
“Before SREC I didn’t have a plan. I was just “trying” to find deals and “trying” to close them. Now each day I have a plan and a business model that helps me determine my activities. I have become more efficient and I am now making money consistently.”
~ Zach Kennedy
“With SREC there are no lies… all there is the truth. Out of all the products and coaching that’s out there, SREC is the best investment in my time and money.”
~ Roberto Olmos
“We closed our first deal!”
~ Preston Eisnaugle
“I must say I thought the event was quite frankly the best event I have attended in the 27 years since I bought my first investment property. Josh is certainly a credit to the industry and we need more men with his integrity and honesty. I felt his teaching style was direct and informative without all the pomp and circumstance.”
~ Thomas Errico
"I have taken other real estate courses from other guys who sent you books and tapes and they confuse me. Josh is the best trainer and the best coach; I feel that there is no one else in the U.S. who can compete with him!”
~ Mary Marambio
"OMG. I think I have finally heard the real deal. No hype, just straight facts. I have looked at all kinds of programs, and have spent some serious dollars, only to be overwhelmed with information, no one to ever answer a question, and too complicated for even a seasoned Realtor of 28 years to figure out. I am excited, I think I have now heard someone that really has a solid strategy and not a tease with information. With tons of research for the new year, this is by far the best option I have seen yet to really make some money. Thanks, and look forward to the rest of the information.”
~ Linda Hughes from Nashville, TN
