My name is Gordon Stebbings. I’m a big dummy from Baltimore, MD who flips houses for a living. I grew up in a family that knows the construction biz. I learned by being on the job site. From the time I was young I spent summers working on everything from small houses to large commercial buildings.
After graduating college I went to work in the automotive industry. About 6 months in I bought my first foreclosure. It was the height of the market and I thought it would be awesome to flip houses on the side while making an engineer’s salary. I (and a few of my buddies) literally did everything to that first house. Between the time I bought and sold that place I spent days online soaking up all the free real estate investing knowledge I could find. I learned how to find deals, how to find partners, how to get an equity line of credit, how to analyze rentals, etc.
I aggressively went after every “deal” I could find. Some I sold, some I kept as rentals, but they all had one thing in common, they needed rehab. I thought I was building an empire! Little did I know I had created a real estate mini-monster. My plan was to buy homes and live in them while I rehabbed them for retail or rental. I became really good at moving. I actually stopped unpacking as I moved from house to house. I made profits but it made no sense. I was the Charlie Sheen of real estate investing.
Fast-Forward to Today
I still have the passion. But now I am “full time”, as they say. I’ve spent much time and money seeking out the best coaches and mentors in the country. If ever there was a time for someone (you) to learn from the mistakes of others (me), now is the time, and this is the place. If doing deals is the thing that gets you all jacked up, if it’s the thing that makes you tick, you’re my target audience.

Whether you’ve been in the business for 10 years or 10 minutes, you can benefit by joining the discussion here on RehabbingTV. I focus on the most misunderstood part of the business. The rehab process. I’m not interested in glossing over ugliness and being “hands-off”. I’m a well-connected dealmaker that can swing a hammer.
Cheers (and don’t forget to be awesome),
