Quitting the Perfect Day Job to Become a Full-time Real Estate Investor!

Ever dreamt of someday quitting your W2? Witness Andrew Engel's inspiring journey from a stable tech job to the dynamic world of full-time real estate investing. With a young family in tow, Andrew navigated the challenges and triumphs of this major life shift.

Join us to uncover the actionable steps and personal insights that fueled his transformative year.

Speaker: Andrew Engel

Andrew Engel is a real estate investor and founder of Fresh Picked Leads; a lead generation company designed to collect and distribute the freshest motivated seller lists in Wisconsin.

Andrew’s professional background is in software engineering and project management, but he left his W2 job in February 2023 to pursue his businesses full time.

He is now focusing his efforts on building his real estate acquisitions business to wholesale, fix and flip, and hold residential real estate.

WiscoREIA’s Appleton Meeting Always Meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the Month from 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm!

Hosts: Jason Lund & Geoff Possley

Jason is a real estate entrepreneur, coach, mentor and REIA partner. Jason is a partner at WiscoREIA, a real estate investor association, and an owner of 920 Home Buyers.

Jason has also founded a Coaching and Mentoring Group to educate individuals and families on how to grow their real estate investing business and how to manage life's tasks. Jason began his real estate journey in 2010. Jason has also founded several other businesses including a property management company.

He has flipped and wholesaled 1000+ homes and has become a premier property investment firm in Northeast Wisconsin. He also owns 200+ rental properties. Buying, fixing and flipping single family properties has always been Jason's preferred investing strategy.

Geoff is a part time buy and hold investor with investments in the Fox Valley and Sheboygan area. He is a full-time aircraft certification engineer for Gulfstream Aerospace in Appleton where he lives with his wife Laura and four children Carter, Madeline, Rowen and Brielle.

Geoff got started in real estate in 2005, with very little REI knowledge, when he purchased a single-family home with the plan to do a live-in flip over the next few years. After the bubble burst in 2008 his focus shifted from turning a profit to simply breaking even. This led Geoff to step away from real estate for a number of years until he discovered WiscoREIA in 2018 where he finally was able to acquire the knowledge and network that was necessary to be successful in real estate investing.  His goal is to use REI as a means to retire early from engineering.

Geoff currently invests in single-family and small multi-family properties that he operates as traditional rentals as well as short term furnished rentals. In his free time Geoff enjoys camping with his family, playing golf, snowboarding, hunting, and good beer.
