David graduated with a B.S. in Accounting from Florida State University and spent 15 years working for several fortune 500 companies at their company headquarters in the areas of Budgeting, Forecasting, Financial Reporting, and Financial Analysis. He always had a passion for real estate investment and over time acquired several rental properties and even flipped a few houses while working full time. He was fortunate enough to transition from the accounting world to the real estate investing world full time with his partner and mother and he has never looked back.
Barbara Gaddie graduated from Auburn University with a B.S. in education and taught for many years in middle schools around the Bay County area. Once she retired she partnered up with her son to pursue her passion for real estate investing.
The two of us have invested a great deal of time, energy and capital investment into our real estate education, attending the nation’s premier real estate investing education program – FortuneBuilders Mastery. Beyond the principles of sound investing, we were trained on how to build a successful business based on systems and evaluation tools. Having completed over 1,000 real estate deals, FortuneBuilders coaches and systems have allowed us to strategically invest in real estate, grow and expand our business. Through our affiliation, we are connected with a national network of investors that provide continual support and weekly trainings on changes throughout our industry. This process has allowed us to circumvent many pitfalls most novice investors would make. Learning the hard way is not a phrase in our vocabulary, and we certainly would not ask anyone to invest with us if we weren’t confident enough to invest ourselves!
