    Hosts: Mike Martell & Joe Gracyalny 

     

    Mike Martell

    Originally from Two Rivers, Mike and his wife Kathryn (from Brillion) have been married for over 30 years. They have three grown children all living in the upper Midwest. After 25 + years in the kitchen and bath industry working in sales and sales management for a couple of large companies, Mike retired to Door County with Kathryn in June of 2018.

    Mike and Kathryn’s interest in real estate began in 1986 with their first duplex, an upper/lower in Wauwatosa, purchased on a land contract. Over the years they moved all over the Midwest chasing the corporate dream but always looking, buying, and updating properties, focused on kitchen and bath remodels. They purchased flips, buy and holds, tried their hand at land development, historic renovations and buying bank owned properties. Today they are focused on vacation rentals and private money lending.

     

    Joe Gracyalny

    Joe is a real estate investor in the Green Bay/Fox Valley area. He has partnerships with other investors, as well as his own projects and views investing as a team activity. He specializes in underperforming small multifamily projects.

    Joe has a passion for education and helping young investors. He was a teacher and coach in Dubuque, IA before moving back to his Wisconsin roots. As a teacher, he added a few rentals in the Green Bay area, and recognized the opportunity in real estate. He took the leap and hasn’t looked back. WiscoREIA provides the opportunity for him to be able to scratch that educator itch, as well as learn from the many people in the room. Hosting the Green Bay location has been a blast!

    Joe got his first project under contract in 2018 with his brother Kevin and has been growing ever since. Currently, at 50+ doors, as well as some wholesale deals, and flips under his belt. He credits specializing to some of his success, but continues to learn more every day.

    In 2023 Joe launched Duplex University where you can find tools, templates, a weekly newsletter, with more to come, all 100% free to investors. Find Joe on: duplexuniversity.com - Instagram @ duplex_joe - Twitter @ realduplexjoe or at WiscoREIA Green Bay on the first Tuesday of every month!

    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.

    Hosts: Dan Yurkovich & Andy Baugher


    Dan Yurkovich

    Dan started his investing career in 2018 when he moved to Kenosha and bought his first property to “house hack” and begin building a rental portfolio. After struggling in real estate for 2 years, he eventually found WiscoREIA in 2020. Networking with other local investors at the monthly meetups, he quickly learned the potential to become financially free through real estate and dove in head first.

    He started acquiring more rentals using the “BRRRR” method and eventually got into flips, wholesales, and creative financing. In June, 2022, Dan was able to leave his fulltime job as a mechanical engineer and start investing in real estate full time. He specializes in buying rentals with no money down and is always eager to learn new strategies to buy properties and help sellers in difficult situations.

    Dan loves to share what he has learned with other investors and get those around him excited about the life-changing potential of real estate investing. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, trying new food, playing sports and snowboarding.

     


    Andy Baugher

    Andy has been passionate about real estate for all of his adult life. In 2012, Andy purchased his first commercial property and then continued his real estate investing over the years by purchasing and holding multifamily properties in the Racine/Kenosha area. His main strategy as an investor is buy and hold, but he enjoys and dabbles in BRRR, hard money lending and investing in syndicated deals. Andy built his portfolio over the years while working a full time W2 job. In 2022, Andy “Retired” from the “9 to 5” to enjoy financial freedom and continue to grow his investment portfolio and businesses. Andy and his wife own a local full-service real estate brokerage and a property management company.

    In his free time, Andy enjoys spending time with his wife (Meagan) and two young children (Ben and Jack) as well as working out, running and almost any other outdoor activity.

    Andy enjoys sharing his knowledge and insight with others about real estate investing and is passionate about helping people use real estate to build wealth and reach financial freedom.

    Hosts: Geoff Possley and Chris Wolfert

    Geoff Possley

    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.

     


    Chris Wolfert

    Chris is a buy-and-hold real estate investor who got started in real estate investing out of necessity. In 2008, he bought a small condo in Chicago and shortly after, his family quickly began to outgrow the space with the arrival of their first child. When he went to sell the property in 2011, he realized he would take a sizeable loss. Therefore, he decided to turn the condo into a rental property instead. Despite his initial apprehension, he quickly saw the advantage of real estate investing.

    In 2018, Chris began actively investing in real estate after moving to Sheboygan, WI. He invests in single-family homes and duplexes, which he operates as both traditional rentals and short-term furnished rentals. His long-term goal is to expand into larger multi-family complexes. Chris’s investing greatly increased after partnering with a good friend who introduced him to WiscoREIA.

    In his free time, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife Marla and their three children, Finn, Lexi, and Fiona. He is an active coach for youth soccer and basketball, spending much of his time during the fall and spring coaching soccer and during the winter coaching basketball. In addition to coaching, he enjoys snowboarding, cycling, golfing, and craft beer.

    Hosts: Mike Martell & Joe Gracyalny 

     

    Mike Martell

     

    Originally from Two Rivers, Mike and his wife Kathryn (from Brillion) have been married for over 30 years. They have three grown children all living in the upper Midwest. After 25 + years in the kitchen and bath industry working in sales and sales management for a couple of large companies, Mike retired to Door County with Kathryn in June of 2018.

    Mike and Kathryn’s interest in real estate began in 1986 with their first duplex, an upper/lower in Wauwatosa, purchased on a land contract. Over the years they moved all over the Midwest chasing the corporate dream but always looking, buying, and updating properties, focused on kitchen and bath remodels. They purchased flips, buy and holds, tried their hand at land development, historic renovations and buying bank owned properties. Today they are focused on vacation rentals and private money lending.

     

     

    Joe Gracyalny

     

    Joe is a real estate investor in the Green Bay/Fox Valley area. He has partnerships with other investors, as well as his own projects and views investing as a team activity. He specializes in underperforming small multifamily projects.

    Joe has a passion for education and helping young investors. He was a teacher and coach in Dubuque, IA before moving back to his Wisconsin roots. As a teacher, he added a few rentals in the Green Bay area, and recognized the opportunity in real estate. He took the leap and hasn’t looked back. WiscoREIA provides the opportunity for him to be able to scratch that educator itch, as well as learn from the many people in the room. Hosting the Green Bay location has been a blast!

    Joe got his first project under contract in 2018 with his brother Kevin and has been growing ever since. Currently, at 50+ doors, as well as some wholesale deals, and flips under his belt. He credits specializing to some of his success, but continues to learn more every day.

    In 2023 Joe launched Duplex University where you can find tools, templates, a weekly newsletter, with more to come, all 100% free to investors. Find Joe on: duplexuniversity.com - Instagram @ duplex_joe - Twitter @ realduplexjoe or at WiscoREIA Green Bay on the first Tuesday of every month!

    Dan Yurkovich

    Dan started his investing career in 2018 when he moved to Kenosha and bought his first property to “house hack” and begin building a rental portfolio. After struggling in real estate for 2 years, he eventually found WiscoREIA in 2020. Networking with other local investors at the monthly meetups, he quickly learned the potential to become financially free through real estate and dove in head first.

    He started acquiring more rentals using the “BRRRR” method and eventually got into flips, wholesales, and creative financing. In June, 2022, Dan was able to leave his fulltime job as a mechanical engineer and start investing in real estate full time. He specializes in buying rentals with no money down and is always eager to learn new strategies to buy properties and help sellers in difficult situations.

    Dan loves to share what he has learned with other investors and get those around him excited about the life-changing potential of real estate investing. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, trying new food, playing sports and snowboarding.

Andy built his portfolio over the years while working a full time W2 job. In 2022, Andy “Retired” from the “9 to 5” to enjoy financial freedom and continue to grow his investment portfolio and businesses. Andy and his wife own a local full-service real estate brokerage and a property management company.

    Hosts: Geoff Possley and Chris Wolfert

    Geoff Possley

    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.

     


    Chris Wolfert

    Chris is a buy-and-hold real estate investor who got started in real estate investing out of necessity. In 2008, he bought a small condo in Chicago and shortly after, his family quickly began to outgrow the space with the arrival of their first child. When he went to sell the property in 2011, he realized he would take a sizeable loss. Therefore, he decided to turn the condo into a rental property instead. Despite his initial apprehension, he quickly saw the advantage of real estate investing.

    In 2018, Chris began actively investing in real estate after moving to Sheboygan, WI. He invests in single-family homes and duplexes, which he operates as both traditional rentals and short-term furnished rentals. His long-term goal is to expand into larger multi-family complexes. Chris’s investing greatly increased after partnering with a good friend who introduced him to WiscoREIA.

    In his free time, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife Marla and their three children, Finn, Lexi, and Fiona. He is an active coach for youth soccer and basketball, spending much of his time during the fall and spring coaching soccer and during the winter coaching basketball. In addition to coaching, he enjoys snowboarding, cycling, golfing, and craft beer.

    Hosts: Mike Martell & Joe Gracyalny 

     

    Mike Martell

     

    Originally from Two Rivers, Mike and his wife Kathryn (from Brillion) have been married for over 30 years. They have three grown children all living in the upper Midwest. After 25 + years in the kitchen and bath industry working in sales and sales management for a couple of large companies, Mike retired to Door County with Kathryn in June of 2018.

    Mike and Kathryn’s interest in real estate began in 1986 with their first duplex, an upper/lower in Wauwatosa, purchased on a land contract. Over the years they moved all over the Midwest chasing the corporate dream but always looking, buying, and updating properties, focused on kitchen and bath remodels. They purchased flips, buy and holds, tried their hand at land development, historic renovations and buying bank owned properties. Today they are focused on vacation rentals and private money lending.

     

     

    Joe Gracyalny

     

    Joe is a real estate investor in the Green Bay/Fox Valley area. He has partnerships with other investors, as well as his own projects and views investing as a team activity. He specializes in underperforming small multifamily projects.

    Joe has a passion for education and helping young investors. He was a teacher and coach in Dubuque, IA before moving back to his Wisconsin roots. As a teacher, he added a few rentals in the Green Bay area, and recognized the opportunity in real estate. He took the leap and hasn’t looked back. WiscoREIA provides the opportunity for him to be able to scratch that educator itch, as well as learn from the many people in the room. Hosting the Green Bay location has been a blast!

    Joe got his first project under contract in 2018 with his brother Kevin and has been growing ever since. Currently, at 50+ doors, as well as some wholesale deals, and flips under his belt. He credits specializing to some of his success, but continues to learn more every day.

    In 2023 Joe launched Duplex University where you can find tools, templates, a weekly newsletter, with more to come, all 100% free to investors. Find Joe on: duplexuniversity.com - Instagram @ duplex_joe - Twitter @ realduplexjoe or at WiscoREIA Green Bay on the first Tuesday of every month!
