Ken McElroy has lived and breathed real estate for his entire adult life, learning from the ground up. Ken got his start during college, when he took a job managing an apartment complex. What began as a way to simply cover his room and board ignited his entrepreneurial spirit. The turning point came when the property owner dropped by the office to pick up his check for the month. Ken decided that one day he would be on the other side of the desk, picking up his own check. Fueled by that determination, Ken bought his first investment property not long afterwards. It was a small property that barely turned a profit, but it didn’t matter. Ken was hooked.
Since then, Ken has experienced great success in the real estate world – from investment analysis and property management to acquisitions and property development. Together with his real estate investment company, MC Companies, Ken has transacted over $1 billion in real estate.
Today, Ken is committed to helping as many people as possible to achieve financial freedom through real estate. He shares his expertise with thousands of people around the world through his immensely popular YouTube channel, and is a sought-after speaker on real estate investing at events around the world. In addition to all of that, Ken is the author of the best-selling books The ABC’s of Real Estate Investing, The Advanced Guide to Real Estate Investing, The ABC’s of Property Management, and most recently his book on entrepreneurship, The Sleeping Giant. As the Real Estate Advisor to Robert Kiyosaki of The Rich Dad Company, Ken is also a chapter contributor in the newly released Rich Dad book, More Important Than Money: an Entrepreneur’s Team.
Ken lives with his family in Scottsdale, Arizona. He is probably mulling over a deal right this second.
