Who are our coaches?
Greg McCluskey, Director of Coaching
Greg has been investing in real estate since he bought his first real estate course in 1995. Greg immediately purchased a condo and moved him and his wife into their first home while they were both still attending college. Greg was raised just outside Boston, MA in a beach community called Humarock. His family home was 900 sq. ft. and Greg was raised with his 8 siblings in humble circumstances. His family had everything they needed and his father taught him from a young age to own a business.
At 18 Greg drove to Rexburg, ID to attend Ricks College, really he just skied most days at Grand Targhee. Greg then moved to Salt Lake City to attend the University of Utah and became a ski instructor at Deer Valley Ski Resort. Greg was no star. He graduated high school with a 2.0 GPA and College with a 2.8 GPA. He is proud of that because it proves you do not have to be a rocket scientist to succeed in real estate. Greg worked for Franklin Covey for 3 years straight out of college in sales he then began to seriously focus on real estate.
With no money and no experience Greg purchased three properties in 30 days profiting $88,000, $76,000, and $74,000. He and his partner quit their jobs and launched a real estate investment business. Over the next ten years Greg would own a construction company, mortgage brokerage, real estate consulting company, Development Company, and invest in numerous real estate properties and construction projects. In 2005 Greg flipped 104 homes in the Salt Lake area. He expanded his businesses to Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, and Massachusetts. His business was involved in over $150 million of real estate. He was able to spend many hours with his family due to the profitability of these businesses.
In 2008 Greg was hit as hard as anybody by the recession and lost everything except that which mattered most his family. He sold the million dollar home, BMW, Denali and bought a 1997 Plymouth Voyager and started over. Greg started his new business with his current partner and began to solve the problem of providing low income families homeownership opportunities throughout the mid-west. Greg has now added Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Alabama, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Pennsylvania to his list of states he has transacted real estate in. Greg has a goal of taking properties owned by Wall Street back to the people who actually live in the communities. Greg works closely with non-profit companies to create jobs and home ownership. His company is centrally located in Columbus, OH. He has a great love for the Heart of America. Greg believes the solutions to our problems lie in the everyday hard working Americans not the people in ivory towers trading on the backs of American families who do the work. Greg wants to coach you on how to make a difference in your own life by making a difference investing in other people’s lives through real estate. Greg’s motto is; doing great, while doing good.
Greg lives in Mapleton, UT with his wife and 5 children (4girls). Greg coaches two elite soccer teams.

Mike was a certified apple tech for 17 years. Mike worked with the same company during this time becoming an expert on Apple computers. During this time Mike was handed a book by a colleague on trading the market and trading options.
Mike knew nothing about the market and didn’t even know what an option was. Mike thought it was great, but lacked the money to get started. He pulled together $400 and opened his first account with a local broker. It cost $60-$100 to get in and out of trades back then. This made it extremely difficult for Mike to make money. As the months past Mike made and lost money and had to refund his account a couple of times. Mike didn’t have a coach or an expert to guide him and learned as he went from real experience.
Mike focused his strategies and began to trade full-time after the company he worked for closed their doors. Mike simplified his trading and was then able to pay his bills through his trading. Mike then began to teach what he knew, truly, worked in the markets. Once Mike became a coach his trading got even better. Through his ability to actively trade the stock and Forex markets daily and coaching others to succeed Mike has developed into an expert who can help others to successful y create their own trading strategies. Mike believes as a friend told him years ago. “Trading is easy, People make it hard.”

Mike attended Utah State University and is an avid golfer in the summer and plays racquetball in the winter. He is married and a father of 7 children, 3 sons and 4 daughters.
Kristiin has extensive experience in real estate investing and mentoring. She began real estate investing in 1997; she and her husband were looking for a home for their young family, and wanted to do it with little or no money down. They negotiated a lease option on their home, and in the same year picked up 9 rental units start their real estate portfolio. She found out quickly that being a landlord was not for the faint of heart, and found rehabbing properties to be a very fun challenge, so she incorporated flipping in to the business.
From there she continued to branch out, adding different types of deals into her business; so now she not only has a depth, but also a breadth in the variety of her experience, which includes: Lease Options, Flips, Property Management, Pre-Foreclosures, REO’s, Commercial, Land Development, and Short Sales, and Seller Finance.
Kristiin became a licensed real estate agent in the state of Utah in 2005, and thoroughly enjoys using her license not only in her investing activities, but also to help people find the right house to fit their lifestyle and family needs. Even though she loves all areas of real estate, she still believes it is of the utmost importance to have long term, cash-flowing assets for a solid foundation in any real estate portfolio.
Combining her love for real estate with the fulfillment of teaching others, she began coaching people how to invest in real estate. She started mentoring personal clients in 2003, so that she could not only teach people via phone and computer, but also take partners on in projects to actually show them, side by side, how to purchase real estate. She found this to be so rewarding and effective, that she continues to teach people this way. She is a natural educator who possesses great patience for questions and can easily break down information for the beginning and intermediate investors.
Kristiin has a great passion to help others, so you will find her doing volunteer work in many arenas, including Habitat for Humanity, women’s shelters, homeless shelters, schools, and churches. A little know fact about Kristiin is that she is the 5th child in a family of 12 children; growing up in a family that size taught her lessons of hard work and gratitude. Her family is her top joy, and she is the mother of four amazing children. Kristiin lives in Chandler, AZ.
