Finding Out-of-State Green with Real Estate Investor David Greene

Thrive REIA is absolutely honored to have the infamous David Greene as our guest speaker at this month's Meetup. David will share how investing in real estate made him a millionaire by the age of 30, and why he doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon. He will show us how he can analyze an Out-of-State deal in less than 5 minutes, sign the contract, and not lose a wink of sleep over it.

You don't know who David Greene is?? Why should you care what David Greene says??

Check this out:

David Greene is a real estate investor/agent/author/entrepreneur/police officer right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and KILLIN' IT!!!!

Greene started off working as a police officer in 2007 as a Deputy Sheriff in Contra Costa County, and transferred to the BART Police in 2010.

For the last 6 years, he's worked 90-100 hours a week as a police officer and saved up all the money. He started using the money to buy investment property and flip the occasional house. In 2009-2012 he bought rentals in the Manteca area. When those became too expensive, he started buying out of state rental property in Arizona. In Arizona, Greene learned to manage rehab projects and put teams together to do the work that was needed to buy, rehab, and manage the properties.

Last year, he started ramping up this process in Florida. he bought, rehabbed, financed, and rented out 10 properties and flipped a few as well.
Last year Greene was also featured on the BiggerPockets podcast!! His episode was so well received, that he was asked to write articles for their online blog. Greene was also given a book deal by the BiggerPockets publishing arm, and we are eagerly waiting for it's launch!!

Although Greene continues his service as an Officer, Real Estate Investing has taken the front seat. He is now so busy that he has a full time assistant, and working on growing his team. As a Realtor, Greene is also at the top in his office.

He now makes enough money from his rentals income to pay all his bills, and therefore able to save 100% of his income, making him a “Hundred Percenter!!” Isn't that what we are all striving for??

Although Greene was already a millionaire by the age of 30, he still continues to work, invest, and perfect the craft of wealth building through real estate. He is definitely someone we could all learn a thing or two from.

Oh, and you should check out his cool blog!! (
