Megan McGinnis is a native Midwesterner. She moved to Southern California 5 years ago and has been pursuing real estate investing since coming here. Using OPM she acquired 3 properties valued at $800,000 with $44,000 out of pocket. She has also flipped one property for a pretty $100K and has bought tax liens and converted them to deeds and finally a note. If that's Greek to you, keep reading as the rest of her story is less technical.
Graduating in the top 2% of her class at Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, Indiana McGinnis studied economics and declined to go to grad school at the coaching of her professors because of her strong entrepreneurial nature. After working a few years as an employee McGinnis hit the road in pursuit of a higher purpose. Living and working in Europe for several years allowed McGinnis to pursue her dreams. Wrapping up her foreign travel with a bid for the US Olympic team in epee, McGinnis came back to the states to find her next challenge. With an appetite for adventure and risk, McGinnis moved to Chicago, knowing no one, and opening an antique store, going from concept to doors open in 3 weeks. Having accomplished what she wanted in the world of retail, McGinnis moved "shop" to California where 3 of her 4 sisters currently live. In addition to pursuing real estate, McGinnis loves to learn and to meet people. Finding the right connections for her friends and associations is one of McGinnis' gifts and biggest joys.
