My guest in this episode is David Ounanian. David is a real estate agent and investor in St. Louis, MO. A former full-time corporate software engineer turned full-time entrepreneur after becoming obsessed with escaping a dreaded 9 to 5 and determined to make financial freedom a reality for him and his family of 4. David’s first company, Transform St. Louis LLC, is mission-based aiming to have a significant positive impact on the community, while being self-sustaining generating profits from its “WE BUY HOUSES” tag line service. When David started this business in late 2017, he quickly realized the joke was on him as he needed to transform himself before his company could make an external impact in the community. From losing thousands of dollars on the first flip, to David’s lifelong personal fear of public speaking, there’s been plenty of challenges to overcome.
David has become incredibly persistent and growth minded with all aspects of his life including facing his fears, and has established himself as a motivational speaker at local REIAs and corporate offices. This public speaking platform has allowed him to support the campaign to #eliminatethewaitlist of the 1000 children at Big Brothers Big Sisters waiting for volunteers. Today David and his businesses have donated over $25,000 to local charities and helped recruit over 400 volunteers to become Bigs.
David continues to grow his business doing flips, BRRRRing to build his rental portfolio, and serving his retail and investor clients. His experience has uniquely positioned him as a true investor-friendly agent who coaches his clients on successful investing strategies. Investing in real estate has been life-changing for David, and he is passionate about sharing this message and helping others start their journey of becoming financially free.
