#INVESTTHIS EP 74: Flipping Junkie and Forbes Real Estate Council Contributor, Melissa Johnson

With 16 years in the industry and over 1000 deals in the books, Melissa Johnson knows what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. As CEO of Danny Buys Houses, Melissa balances her creative, design side with the practicalities of running a real estate investing company. She is an official member of the Forbes Real Estate Council, NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners), and contributor to the Flipping Junkie blog. Concurrently, she enjoys sharing her unique perspective on running a successful real estate investing business based on real-life experiences and actual results. She is also the wife of Danny Johnson, of Flipping Junkie.

On today’s episode, Melissa provides an inside look into how she started in corporate America but enjoyed her father-in-law’s lifestyle as a real estate investor. Deciding to take the leap, she and her husband Danny began flipping as a side hustle. With lots of self-education, a mentor and some successes under their belt, they went into flipping full-time.

Melissa shares how she has built her teams and some valuable lessons she has learned along the way. Also, she talks about how to get approved to be part of the Forbes Real Estate Council. Additionally, she tells an interesting story about how they made it through the downturn in 2006, which is applicable for today as the fed just cut rates for the first time since 2008!
