About the Speaker

Matt Atkinson started his career in real estate 19 years ago as a mortgage professional and has been investing for the last 17 years. He purchased his first investment property in 2004, a single-family home through a short sale, which is a rental unit he still owns today. However, he over-improved the property, spent too much money on the renovation, and mismanaged his tenants. Throughout this process he learned the struggle of having a full-time job and being a landlord, and how to effectively utilize other industry professionals to improve his investing.

Matt credits this experience with getting him addicted to local real estate investing and now owns over $22 million of rental properties personally and with partners. He has accumulated 25,500 hours experience – nearly 7 years round the clock – and has personally invested over $1.87 million dollars in rehabbing rental properties since 2004, and an additional $4.55 million on flip properties since 2008.

After making only $500 on his first flip project, he reevaluated the strategies others were using and learned how to effectively buy the property, get the most “bang for his buck” during the remodel, and how to price the home for the quickest and most profitable return. In 2012, Matt and his team added real estate consulting to their services. He has focused consulting on a local level with his expertise ranging from rentals, land lording, hard money lending, fix and flipping, assignments and building wealth as an investor.

Matt currently serves on the board of the Utah Valley Real Estate Investors Association (UVREIA) for the last 8 years, the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) for 2 years, and is a member of the Utah Association of Mortgage Professionals (UAMP), Salt Lake Real Estate Investor Association (SLREIA), Utah Real Estate Investors Association (Utah REIA), UAA and WCOR.
