Phyllis Rockower first started in real estate in 80’s in New York, buying her first fixer upper in 1979 for 82k and selling it 7 years later for 435k. This got her excited. She bailed out of the Long Island market right before it tanked and moved to Florida, determined to do this over and over again. She started out small, buying and fixing a few houses. She then started going to seminars to learn how to really do this and the rest is history. She quickly owned 40 rental properties and was well on her way to building a lucrative retirement.
However, as they say, life happens while you are making other plans. She found herself divorced with little money and no credit and her assets sadly diminished. With the knowledge gained from her intense studying program, she was able to move first to Denver for 2 years and then to Los Angeles where she has been since 1996. She has profitably bought and sold real estate all over the U.S. and has started real estate investor’s clubs in Denver & Los Angeles - both of which are flourishing.
She has put a lot of effort into building the clubs because she knew first hand the value of having a likeminded group to network and learn from. Today the Real Estate Investors Club of Los Angeles has over 800 members who meet monthly to improve their chances of success by learning from the exciting speakers that come to meetings, and from the other members as well.
Phyllis has been interviewed for her real estate expertise by CNBC 4 times; The Daily Breeze, Channel 7 News, Investor’s Daily and Time Magazine. She is an active investor herself rather than a seminar promoter. Phyllis not only talks the talk, but walks the walk.
