David and Melina Montelongo – Creating Successful Real Estate Investors Across the Country
Written By- Tim Mitchell for Inc. Magazine
David and Melina Montelongo, a dynamic husband and wife business team, have established themselves as leading experts in the Real Estate Investment Industry and are now on a stated mission, "To inspire others to create FREEDOM through their real estate investments." David and Melina are long time, successful real estate investors and the co-stars of the Flip This House season three series aired on A&E TV. They are also the founders of The Montelongo Organization, an educational company designed to train others to become successful real estate investors. Having accomplished over seven-hundred real estate investment deals over the last thirteen years, they now coach others to success by taking their training and their philosophy for success across the country through educational seminars. The experiential training is geared toward individuals that also want to become successful real estate investors.
The high energy couple started coaching based on requests from others who saw the success they had in the real estate business. Many of their students have gone on to become very successful investors. In addition to the coaching and seminar style training in various cities across the country, the Montelongos are also 'virtually' expanding their business with a stronger online presence. The seminar series includes a free ninety-minute "Freedom through Real Estate" workshop that will be available over the next few months in cities that include Las Vegas, San Diego, Houston, Dallas, and New Orleans. Participants at the "Freedom through Real Estate" workshops will receive a complimentary copy of the book David co-authored with Brian Tracy and others, Cracking the Success Code. Seminar participants will also have the opportunity to register for the Montelongo's "Wealth Creation" training boot camp. At the three-day boot camps attendees will be given proven techniques and vital information to help them begin or enhance their real estate investing business.
The Montelongos have developed their seminar series and coaching business because of some of the experiences they have gone through in recent years. After leaving the television program, Flip This House, they went through some difficult times. David says, "When the housing bubble burst I was overleveraged and not quite prepared for what had happened.
