"How We Built Our Businesses" - An Investor Panel
This panel of investors come from a variety of investing backgrounds that may interest you:
- Buying mobile home parks
- Flipping houses
- Building a portfolio of apartments
The great thing about real estate is you can adjust, pivot, and find an investing product that works for you. Even within a specific product type, there are many ways to make it work.
Be ready to hear about their experiences, challenges faced, what their current focus is, and a open Q/A.
Panelists: Mike Higgins, Blaine Ott, Dustin Wiskes
Mike Higgins is a recovering realtor turned investor. He was been in the real estate industry since 2015 and pivoted his focus to his residential fix and flip the company while actively pursuing storage facilities and mobile home parks to buy and hold.
He's a proud Front Row Dad to 4 kids, married 11 years to his amazing wife April and lives in the great state of Wisconsin.
Blaine is a forward thinking business professional. Throughout his career he has worked for companies ranging in size from boutique private equity to Fortune 500 in the printing and packaging markets.
Since 2005 Blaine has been involved in real estate in various forms. From 2005-2011 his business was driven by fixing and flipping residential properties from the MLS and sheriff sales. From 2011 to current the goal of his real estate business has been buy and hold growth through residential value add properties. His current portfolio consists of residential, retail, office, and industrial properties.
Blaine also has an Operations Management degree from UW Oshkosh as well as a MBA in Management from Concordia University.
I started investing in real estate in 2017 when my wife and I house-hacked a duplex in De Pere. We built up a small portfolio of rentals in the area before making the jump to mobile home park investing in 2021.
We now own four communities across Wisconsin (about 100 pads) and manage them all remotely from home. I still work full time as an engineer for a local paper company, while my wife raises our 3 young girls.
Our goal is to continue buying more MHPs until I can step back from my W2 job and focus full time on real estate and traveling as a family.
