During the real estate boom of the early 2000’s Tarek was a successful Orange County Realtor specializing in luxury properties, but when the market tanked, everything changed for him.
Tarek and his business partner Pete de Best, bought their first investment house in Santa Ana for $115k. They sold the property and split the $34k profit – this was the start of their new business venture.
Now, Tarek and Pete are focused on building and growing their real estate investment company, Tarek Buys Houses, LLC, a career move that soon became the hit reality series, “Flip or Flop.”
Tarek Buys Houses, LLC is currently investing in over 100 deals per year, and is expanding its operations nationwide to not only include single family homes, but also commercial real estate investments as well as building a portfolio of rental income properties.
