In today's episode, we dive deep into the world of virtual real estate investing and the critical role of construction management with our expert guest, the KING of rehabbing, Rotty Garcilazo. Known formally as Ryan but affectionately called Rotty, he oversees all construction for my extensive portfolio of 28 single-family homes and multiple apartment complexes, all managed virtually. This episode sheds light on the unique challenges and solutions in virtual real estate investing, the complexities of construction management, and the art of working with contractors to achieve success in the flipping and rehabbing market.

Rotty is the CEO of The Rehab Depot Inc. He is an author, speaker and consultant. He started in this business without any formal training or experience in this niche field of Real Estate Redevelopment. He owned one of the largest General Contracting Redevelopment Companies in Chicago (The Garcilazo Group). Rotty has walked thousands of properties on behalf of investors. His company has flipped over 1000 properties over the last 15 years. They have flipped millions of dollars in real estate. Ryan has worked with the “who’s who” of the industry and is respected amongst the elite.  Ryan has consulted over $250mm in real estate redevelopment. He has trained over 1,000 investors with the largest rehab academy in the world. His bread and butter have always been both single family and multi family properties. The construction projects that Ryan general contracted were as high as $500k, consulted others on million-dollar projects and he has managed portfolios in the tens of millions for other organizations.

𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐉𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧: After graduating from UCLA in 2003 with an English degree, Justin went directly into business for himself. He has never had a W-2 job. In 2005 he got into real estate by co-founding a brokerage in the Northern California area. Quickly he realized that being a realtor was not for him.

In 2007 he got into real estate investing full time. 16 years later, Justin has flipped well over 2600 properties, accumulated millions in rental properties, and is an active investor to this day.

His success in real estate led him to start The Science Of Flipping podcast and education company, where he has coached and mentored over one thousand aspiring and active investors.

He is a nationally recognized speaker and is on a mission to educate as many people as possible on becoming a successful dynamic real estate investor.
