Top Selling Real Estate Author, Investor, and Instructor
Jay Decima, also known as “Fixer Jay,” is a seasoned real estate investor with nearly 50 years experience. Since 1977 he has specialized in fixing up ugly houses and small apartment buildings. Jay is also a successful career-changer, having worked over twenty years for the telephone company before switching to full-time real estate investing in 1979. Today, Jay spends the majority of his time managing and overseeing his investment houses and training others who wish to pursue this lucrative profession.
About thirty years ago, Jay began teaching others his “high profit” adding value strategies and today is widely regarded as the undisputed king of fix-up on the national teaching circuit! Twice each year, Jay personally conducts his popular 3-day INVESTOR TRAINING SEMINAR where students are taught the business of real estate investing and how adding value can produce cash flow in any market. This seminar is ideally suited for career changers and average working folks who seek an added income. Once each year, Jay teaches his “Street-Savvy” landlording seminar – “MANAGING TENANTS AND TOILETS”, which many regard as the best “how to” seminar in the country for hands-on owners.
Jay has authored three best-selling “How To” books, published by McGraw-Hill, “INVESTING IN FIXER-UPPERS” was voted the No. 1 real estate book for 2003 by the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Sun. “START SMALL, PROFIT BIG IN REAL ESTATE” advises readers how to develop a 2 year plan for building wealth, starting from scratch and create enough cash flow to quit their day job. “GOLD MINE HOUSES” teaches readers how small apartments and multiple houses (colonies) can speed up wealth, produce quicker income, and provide a worry-free retirement.
Jay’s published books have sold over 260,000 copies (Amazon says a successful business book sells 7,000 copies).
