It was 2001 when Gina and I met in College in San Diego. We had both been in the Military and were using our GI bills. After she asked me for my phone number, although she argues it was simply for school related purposes, I knew she was the one. It was love at first laugh so we pursued a life together. Once we had our first child (Nayah) we decided the best thing for our family was to move back to Idaho where I am from. I took her to the coldest part of Idaho, the East. There we found a cute little home for sale. We hired a Realtor, found out what the home was worth and bought our first home, definitely a fixer. Gina was too cold in Eastern Idaho so we decided to move to Boise. The real estate market had crashed and our home’s worth was less than what we owed so we decided to rent the real estate out. While in Boise, we thought the best thing to do was to hire a property management company and let them manage our real estate. They did not get it rented in 3 months, so we fired them and rented it out ourselves in a week. While doing construction and handyman work in Boise we saved enough to hire a Realtor and start dabbling with real estate. Every home for sale we would find, we would stop and look through the windows. If we liked it, we would call our Realtor to get in to see the inside. This process was the beginning of our love for real estate and investing and it helped us become experts on the real estate market. Our first year investing in Real Estate we bought a duplex. The next year though was one of our best years; our Realtor loved us because we bought 3 homes for sale within 3 months. I had become a maintenance manager for a big 250 unit complex and Gina was managing our real estate from home. When we decided that we were making enough income from our investment real estate, I quit my maintenance job and went into real estate full time. Our Realtor gave us lots of great advice so I became a Realtor and started NORDz Enterprises and NORDz Real Estate Group. After five years of selling and managing real estate we bought Handyman Connection of Boise a well respected franchise business that has been in the valley for over 20 years..
