About Our Company Founder Lex Levinrad
Lex was born in Paris and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. He came to the United States for college (San Diego State University) and graduated from University with a bachelor’s degree in Finance. He moved to Los Angeles in 1991 and was a stockbroker and financial advisor in LA until March of 2000 (Nasdaq Market Crash). The stock market crash of 2000 had a lasting impact on Lex and his family, and he vowed to never place his future and his family well being in the hands of something as random as the stock market . He read the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” which is how the the seeds of investing in real estate were first planted. Lex made the decision to be a real estate investor and to learn how to buy rental properties.
MOVING TO FLORIDA
That same year, Lex saw an infomercial on TV about buying real estate. He spent almost 3 years attending seminars, and learning about investing in real estate before deciding to quit being a financial advisor and to become a full time real estate investor. He made the decision to leave California and move with his Family to Boca Raton Florida in 2003, because real estate was much more affordable in Florida, and the demographics were so positive for Florida with so many people moving there. Lex and his family love Florida – and that decision to move to Florida worked out great!
LEX & HIS FAMILY
When Lex moved to Florida, his two oldest boys Michael and Jacob were just 1 and 4 years old. Now they are 21 and 24 and Dylan is 9 (see pic to the left). Lex spent the first two years in Florida working with a home buying company that specializes in buying houses, repairing them and renting them to tenants.
Since then, Lex and his companies have purchased over 1,000 single family homes from sellers that wanted to sell their house fast for cash. Lex also teaches new real estate investors how to get started investing in real estate. Some of Lex’s students are now full time real estate investors.
Lex is an avid sailor and likes to spend as much time as possible sailing his Catamaran on the ocean. He takes every summer off and spends 6 weeks sailing through the Bahamas with his family and friends. He spends every winter in the keys on his catamaran and likes to fish, scuba dive and snorkel. He loves real estate because it allows him to spend more time with his family and his boys. Lex lives with his family in Boca Raton, Fl.
