My name is Marty Boardman and I’m the creator of Free Real Estate Education.com, a collection of FREE money making tips and ideas for real estate investors, real estate professionals, Realtors, home buyers and home sellers.

I’ve been a full-time real estate entrepreneur and instructor since 2002.  During that time I’ve acted as the principal in over 150 real estate transactions in Arizona, Illinois and Texas.

I’m the Chief Financial Officer for Rising Sun Capital Group, LLC, a real estate investment firm based in Gilbert, AZ.  We purchase homes at the courthouse steps and public REO auctions.  We also find REO and short sales from the multiple listing service.  We have two exit strategies, either fix and flip or seller financing.

I also coach motivated individuals that want to become real estate investors and I’m an accredited instructor for the Arizona Academy of Real Estate.  My class, Attracting and Working with Real Estate Investors, is good for 3 hours of agency law for Arizona Realtors.

I created this blog because I wanted to share my successes and failures with the world.  Most real estate professionals won’t talk about their mistakes because it’s bad for business.  Not me.  I stopped pretending everything was okay in 2007 when I traded in my Mercedes Benz for a 1995 Honda Accord.  The music stopped and I didn’t have a chair.  I live in Gilbert, Arizona with my wife and two daughters.
