I'm the Chief Financial Officer for Rising Sun Capital Group, LLC in Gilbert, Arizona. I'm also the GP for Rising Sun Investments #1, LP, a private equity fund established to purchase distressed real estate in Arizona. I've been a full-time real estate investor since 2001. During that time I managed a $16 million residential real estate portfolio with properties in Phoenix, Chicago and Austin, Texas. I write about my experiences as a real estate investor, Realtor and homeowner on my blog, freerealestateeducation.com.
