Jerome Maldonado’s passion for, and knowledge of, real estate development (and the art of making money), will pique everyone’s interest in the subject. He started out with very little, managed to survive the 2008 recession, and has built up an extremely successful real estate development company, J. Jacob Enterprises Inc. Jerome focuses on the opportunities that exist in seemingly dire situations, and through hard work, skill, and the valuable relationships he has built up over his 20 years in the real estate business, he managed to sail through the shock of the COVID-19 pandemic unscathed. One of his current main ventures is warehouses, specifically those which service the booming e-commerce industry; Jerome sees the beauty in this ‘ugly real estate’ and is excited about the potential for major capital generation in this space. Jerome is clearly a master of his field and he is eager to impart his wealth of knowledge (and knowledge of wealth) onto others. His Real Estate Domination event is taking place on the 6th, 7th, and 8th of November 2020 - whether you are looking to ‘compound your success’ or are still on the road to making a success of yourself, this online event is not one to be missed!
