Effortless Real Estate Investing, with Sean Tagge

Episode 155:

Sean Tagge’s background is in Biomedical Engineering. He worked at the University of Utah Hospital doing research on artificial hearts and quickly realized that he doesn’t like working for someone else (or have someone controlling his time, pay, and future). Sean discovered Real Estate Investing a few months later and the amazing world of Real Estate. Ever since he has been passionate about REI, and he thinks about it every spare moment he has. Sean did a couple of flips and buy-and-holds in 2016.

On February 1st, 2017, he quit his job as an Engineer and partnered up with Memphis Investment Properties to act as their co-partner and Chief Operating Officer. There, he manages the day to day operations of acquiring, fixing and selling Turnkey properties. He uses his engineering skills to organize and streamline the day-to-day systems and processes of the business. Over the past three years, they have done roughly 250 flips a year in Memphis TN.
