Over a Billion Dollars of Real Estate Investment Experience

The three founders of FortuneBuilders Than Merrill, Paul Esajian, and Konrad Sopielnikow each have over 15 years of professional experience in the real estate investment and lending industry. They are the founders and principals in several real estate investment companies and have been involved in over $1 billion of residential and commercial real estate investments during that time frame.

Than, Paul, and Konrad are very active investors in today’s real estate market. In the last two years alone they’ve acquired over $300 million dollars worth of residential and commercial real estate around the country. On the residential side of the business they manage between 25 to 40 ongoing redevelopment single family and multi-family projects at a time. On the commercial side of the business they focus on acquiring apartment communities, retail shopping centers, and office buildings.

The roots of FortuneBuilders started over a decade ago because other real estate investors were constantly asking Than, Paul, and Konrad to teach them how to become more successful investors. More specifically, people wanted to learn their real estate business model, utilize their systems, and ultimately wanted help implementing their business processes and systems.

At FortuneBuilders we pride ourselves on teaching investors not only the foundational principles of sound real estate investing, but also how to build a successful business that is not dependent on you and, just as important, your time as the business owner.
