Gary Boomershine founded RealEstateInvestor.com in 2005 out of the desire to expand his own real estate investing and home buying business. He saw the opportunity to leverage people, processes and technology to gain a leg up in a changing and competitive marketplace. With a family legacy in real estate and a career in the technology sector, Gary combined the two and launched RealEstateInvestor.com and began offering its flagship product, REIvault, to the savvy investor market.
According to Gary, “Most small real estate enterprises limit their growth and many times fail because they lack real marketing and sales expertise along with the infrastructure to scale their business. Instead of focusing on closing deals and maximizing profits, they hit a wall trying to do everything themselves and they simply can’t do it!”
REIvault caters to top producing agents, investors and smaller hedge funds who are looking for a competitive advantage in their local markets. Under Gary’s leadership, this service has launched a “technology revolution” within the real estate niche; offering an alternative to the MLS by bringing qualified buyers and sellers face to face at the right time.
Gary currently resides in Northern California with his family and manages the global team for RealEstateInvestor.com.
