Than Merrill is considered to be one of the nation’s most successful real estate investing moguls. Merrill has been in the industry for more than a decade, and has successfully bought and sold hundreds of properties throughout the U.S. He is credited with founding the real-estate investing and coaching firm, FortuneBuilders. Merrill is also known in the investing community for co-founding Grand Coast Capital Group, an SEC regulated investment fund currently more than $50 million dollars under management. A Yale graduate, former NFL player, sought after public speaker, and past star of A&E’s “Flip This House,” Than Merrill accredits his accomplishments in sports, business, and investing to coaching and education. These are the core values behind FortuneBuilders, and what he conveys to each of his students looking to establish business of their own. “The Real Estate Wholesaling Bible,” Merrill’s Amazon bestseller, remains a reliable source for those interested in further uncovering the secrets behind successful investing. Ultimately, Than Merrill places an emphasis on ethics and integrity, and - above all - desires to inspire and educate those around him.
