Kevin believes in these three core principles: Education, Common Sense and Courage, which are quintessential to being successful in life.  He explores how these core principles helped him in his life and how they will help you in his real estate investment mentorship program.

With over 30 years of experience in real estate investing, Kevin has seen and experienced it all!

His success is the catalyst that motivates him to help develop the next successful real estate investors.  The real estate investor mentorship program helps aspiring investors navigate the complicated roads of investing and help avoid common pitfalls that discourage or derail an investor’s success.  A variety of topics, such as understanding financing, how money works, and selecting an investment, will be discussed.

When Kevin began in real estate investing, he didn’t have a blueprint to get him started.  There was a lot of trial and error to figure things out.  Throughout the years, Kevin has educated himself in all aspects of the real estate market.  In 2000, while working in his profession as an Electrician for the New York Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Kevin became a real estate agent.  In 2005, he became a Mortgage Loan Officer.  To advance his knowledge, Kevin learned carpentry and plumbing too.  Within a few years, he earned his contractor’s license and opened Holmes Home Improvement Company in New York.  Because of all his experience, Kevin can assess the work an investment property needs and estimate the costs.

Currently, Kevin owns investment properties in New York, North Carolina and South Carolina. 

Learn more about Kevin’s journey from his book, Daddy I’m The Man You Could Have Been.  His book takes us through his humble beginnings growing up in Red Hook Housing Project in Brooklyn, NY, from his relationship with his father to how he got started in real estate investing.

O’Neale, Queens, New York

“My name is Cleate and I am 64 yrs old.  Kevin has been mentoring me in real estate investments since I was 62 yrs old and through his mentorship, I’ve invested in two homes in Columbia S.C. which goes to show you that you’re never too old to continue following your dreams.”

Cleate, Queens, New York

“Years ago when we worked together, Kevin talked to me about his investments. He spoke about the importance of having something that will help set up your future when retired and also to have the ability to pass this on to your children. The idea of retiring comfortably, plus having the ability to help my kids for their future and to teach them how to do it for their kids was definitely appealing. Every good parent wants to make the lives of their children easier. Kevin’s direction has given me the ability to just that. “

Jason, Staten Island, New York
