Jerome Maldonado – Highly Successful Real Estate Investor, Business Owner, Coach, and Speaker: Inspired by his parents’ dedicated work ethic, Jerome has always had a hunger for success and a willingness to do whatever it took to make his vision for his life a reality. Starting from scratch, he struggled for many years to get his business off the ground, but from this, he learned what it really takes to build an empire from the ground up.
After years of honing his skills in sales, team building, and real estate concepts, Jerome finally built his first 6 figure business in his 20s. In 1998, Jerome pioneered a new construction company which he took to seven figures, in less than one year. With much success came the need for expansion. Understanding the simple concepts and benefits of leasing real estate, he purchased a multi-use retail and commercial property to house his business.
Jerome found the traction and confidence which has allowed him to do millions upon millions of dollars in residential and commercial real estate transactions and holdings.
Over the span of his 20-year career, Jerome has done over $380 million in in-house transactions, with $150 million in 2022 alone. His unique ability to streamline results is what makes Jerome’s knowledge and experience so powerful.
