Meet America’s Most Under-The-Radar Real Estate Developers Who Just Built The Finest Residences In The World

It’s been a dizzying few months for the news cycle.

President Joe Biden is officially in. Hedge funds are bleeding thanks to a Reddit sub-group (what is that?) while a global pandemic still rages. Tom Brady, at age 43, is about to play in his 10th Super Bowl in twenty years.

Meanwhile, thirty minutes north of downtown Miami, a Florida real estate dynasty that’s been called the ”other Trumps” for decades has been too busy building their next billion-dollar masterpiece to pay attention to the outside noise.

Few people have more experience in the ultra-high net worth real estate space than South-African born businessman Jules Trump. Along with his younger brother and lifelong business partner, Eddie, and his wife of 50 years, Stephanie, Jules is co-chairman of The Trump Group, which over the past four decades has assembled a sprawling entrepreneurial empire from real estate and hotels in Florida and California to technology start-ups in Tel Aviv.

One real-estate investor built a portfolio worth millions in 5 years

  • Aaron Amuchastegui, a real-estate investor who navigated the 2008 crisis but took a serious financial hit in 2013, revived his portfolio in just five years’ time. 
  • He utilizes an investment strategy that targets “courthouse step” deals, or buying foreclosed homes at auction. 
  • Amuchastegui’s strategy has shifted over the years, and he now prioritizes a long-term investment plan focused on single-family Texas home rentals rather than quick flips. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

In 2008, Aaron Amuchastegui was lucky to hang onto his job amid the financial crisis, and then by 2013 he was broke.

It was quite a change for the son of a homebuilder in a small town in Oregon. The 40-year-old investor told Insider that since 2005, he had enjoyed a lucrative career flipping new, custom home developments, but the 2008 financial crisis levied a direct hit against that model.

The builder Amuchastegui worked for laid off about 70 people after 2008, he said in an interview on the BiggerPockets podcast, and he was relocated to Sacramento, California, one of just five remaining members of his team.

Amuchastegui, now 40, had been with the builder, based in Santa Barbara, since he graduated from nearby California Polytechnic

He Quit His Job, And Then Built A Multi-Million Dollar Real Estate Portfolio in 3 Years

Jerome Myers left his corporate job after being forced to lay off over 100 employees within two years. Now, Myers is helping thousands of people gain freedom through real estate. He’s been featured on numerous podcasts and has been a speaker at conferences all over the United States.

“A lot of people are putting money into their 401k. But that money is locked away until you’re in your 60s,” says Myers in an exclusive interview with Black Enterprise. “What if you can do something that turns on cash flow now and will allow you to get your freedom earlier?”

After leaving his corporate job in 2016, Myers built a portfolio of six multifamily properties. Now, he’s adding a 120-unit property in Greensboro to his multimillion-dollar real estate portfolio.

“Your dream can be real,” says Myers. “You just have to be willing to do the work.”

How It All Started

At age 5, Myers thought he had his dream job figured out. “I want to be a trash man,” Myers shared with his mom. He admired the freedom and flexibility that his neighbor enjoyed. Unlike his military-based father whom he rarely saw until dinnertime, his neighbor was able to be
