Peter Vekselman – Real Estate Investing and Real Estate Investing Coach
Peter Vekselman built and sold a franchise system and then built a mobile home distributorship which became the largest used distributorship in Georgia. Now, he is owner/operator of a construction company and has completed over 3000 renovations and new homes. He is also a private money lender and Angel Investor, having raised over 10 million to lend out to Real Estate Investors for short term bridge loans. After building one of the largest and most successful Real Estate Investing companies in the southeastern United States, Peter realized that he was pioneering an entirely new and successful business model: providing clients with one source for all their needs. It became clear to him that teaching others how to succeed in the rough and tumble world of Real Estate Investing was his future. He developed a unique curriculum for Real Estate Investing that takes the needs of students into consideration. Instead of a 3-day interaction with students barely scratching the surface, he developed a 1-year Immersion into Real Estate Investing Curriculum.
