111. Maximizing Investment Benefits, Living to Eat, Bullet-Proof Coffee, and Sustaining Your Focus John Carney

111 PinterestJohn Carney’s story began in the 1930s with his Grandfather his grandfather’s brother skipping high school to put in roads and basements with horse drawn equipment. This led to where John is today, being 3rd generation in his family to be in the Real Estate business. While John took a familiar route, it wasn’t exactly the same. After meeting his wife, John moved to her home country of Australia and embarked on a phenomenal business venture that we now know today at the America Property Source.

John Carney uses his real estate experience and knowledge to aid Australian investors with the American real estate market. John recognized three main problems that Australian investors were having with the American Real Estate market; Knowledge, Resources, and time. Australian investors felt that they were out of their depth, when trying to understand the real estate market in America. Secondly Australian Investors didn’t know anyone with a trust worthy reputation that could aid them in finding the advice and resources necessary to making this huge decision. Lastly, Australian investors didn’t have the time needed to solve these problems, and manage the investment and property. To solve these problems John Carney recruited an A-Team of American real estate professionals with jobs from property advisers and  property managers, to insurance and banking agents. John perfected the art of investing in the American real estate market, by giving investors help every step of the way.
