Mitch Stephen has been a self-employed real estate investor for over 20 years. His real estate investing career started at the age of 23 when he read Nothing Down by Robert Allen. Mitch, his wife Tommi, and his daughter Shannon have purchased their fair share of local houses.

Mitch's personal expertise includes raising private money, finding bargain properties, negotiating favorable terms, dealing with renovations and contractors, selling houses, selling notes with little to no discount, and helping others deal with the everyday throes of life in business. He is very familiar with Dodd-Frank, RMLOs, S.A.F.E. Act, Texas Property Code, Truth -in-Lending, R.E.S.P.A. and the legal options available in the owner finance domain.

Mitch offers online education, group coaching, and full-on mentorships as it relates to all the aspects of owner financing.
