About The Author

John Trautman has been investing in real estate for the past 24 years. While doing financing for a car dealership as a young man, he noted that every successful person he met was in real estate. His father- in-law became his real estate mentor and showed him the ropes on his days off. His experience spans from residential fix and flips to commercial repositioning, with more than a decade in the lending/finance sphere and five years as a Vice President for the WAMU Home Loans Division. John loves starting his day at 4 am for what he calls his “sacred time.” He begins with mediation, reads good books like David Goggins’ Can’t Hurt Me and Tim Ferriss’ Tools for Titans, and ends with a trip to the gym. He enjoys spending time with his children and grandchildren, recalling the hours he spent with his own father restoring cars, developing his passion for transforming something from junk to an awesome treasure.
