Nick Grant began working for RealWealth in 2011 as our company's head of marketing. While he originally had no experience with real estate investing, over time he saw thousands of investors create real wealth with real estate. This inspired him to want the same thing for himself and for his family. He purchased his first investment property in Tampa in 2019 and he plans to purchase another this year. He's also an avid Cryptocurrency investor, because he believes the best path to real wealth is to be well-diversified.
