I flipped my very first property in 1990 as an investment on the side to supplement my income. In 2011, my wife Beth and I decided to turn flipping houses into a full time career and leave our eight to five jobs working for someone else. We didn’t have a huge amount of experience in the industry, but what we did have was our work ethic and an intense desire to create a business that was both personally and financially rewarding. This passion turned into real life experience as we have now successfully remodeled and sold hundreds of properties. As our volume and experience grew, we became frustrated that we could not find a software system to help us manage the details of our fix and flip business. Out of this frustration, Fixters was created!
Fixing and flipping houses can be very personally rewarding. We get great satisfaction out of buying what is usually the worst home in the neighborhood and turning it into the best! The extra value we create with our remodels turns into the profits we need to make the business financially rewarding, along with tremendous schedule flexibility. It’s an unbeatable combination!
As we began sharing the Fixters software system with our contractors and realtors, we were often asked about providing education and training. What we always heard was “I want to start flipping houses, but I don’t know how to start?” So we started researching the Fixing and Flipping education systems available and we were appalled by what we found. We attended Fortune Builders, Scott Yancey, Hilary Farr, Tarek and Christina El Moussa and other like courses, we couldn’t believe what we found. The courses offered a low introductory fee, only to find out these groups were trying to charge $30,000 to $60,000 for mentoring and bootcamps. High pressure upselling was the norm, not the exception. We thought this was ridiculous and so The Fixters Academy was born!
We created Fixters to be the ethical, complete and affordable system for the first time or novice flipper. To achieve the financial freedom and schedule flexibility a successful fix and flip business can provide, you need education, a system based on experience and help along the way. That is Fixters! We look forward to sharing with you our knowledge and the knowledge of our industry leading partners, so you can invest in yourself to achieve the goals you have set for you and your family. As you design the next phase of your life, please consider Fixters as part of your plan. Welcome to the Fixters Community!
