January Luncheon – 1/14/2021 Featuring Justin Williams

TOPIC: Life After Actively Investing: What I learned In 2020

JUSTIN WILLIAMS

His entire life Justin has dreamed of a life of financial freedom.  Where he could do what he wanted when he wanted and not have to worry or stress about money.  After investing in real estate for 14 years / flipping several hundred houses, and then spending 7 years mentoring other real estate and business owners Justin had reached all of the financial goals he had set out on and decided it was time to “retire” from active real estate investing and coaching.  

For 9 months he spent his time serving in his church, helping at his kids schools, surfing, playing pickleball and “living the dream” but once Justin had “arrived” and achieved everything he ever thought he wanted he realized this was only the beginning of his journey.  

Justin realized he needed to get back in his genius zone of building businesses.  He is now working towards building a Billion Dollar Software business.  It’s been an interesting experience building a business when you no longer need the money but continue to work hard to challenge yourself, and find different reasons for “why” you are doing what you’re doing.  

Justin resides in San Clemente CA with his beautiful wife and 3 amazing kids.

Ben Lakey: 5 Investing Strategies To Differentiate The Rookies From The Pros

Hi, my name is Ben Lakey. I am passionate about my wife, my three girls, and real estate, in that order.

I began my investing career flipping homes in 2002 when my brother called me at Ft. Gordon, Georgia, because he had just won a foreclosure auction and needed additional money to fund within 24 hours. After reading all of Utah’s foreclosure and title laws, I wired him the money. Once I got home, we remodeled the home ourselves and sold it. I made more money from that month of work than I would make in 6 months with the college degree I was pursuing.

I now have experience as a principal in over 300 transactions, including foreclosure auctions, REO, HUD homes, seller finance, lease options, MLS, FSBO, fix-and-flip, wholesale, hard money, notes, land entitlement and development, and new construction.

After dipping my foot in every pool, I now focus on land entitlement, primarily residential and self-storage. I also currently practice law, specializing in real estate development and construction matters.

I also served an LDS mission in Poland, and deployed to Afghanistan with the army.

I look forward to working with you on a transaction in the future in any capacity. Let’s do business!

Clayton Wolf: Lessons From Bankruptcy To 1,000 Flips

P. Clayton Wolf II (Clayton) grew up in Oregon, from an early age spending time in his father’s bridge-building company. Shortly after arriving in Utah in 2004, he bought his first home and walked on to UVU’s (then UVSC’s) first year of having a wrestling team. Clayton continued investing in real estate through college, but had plenty of forays into the hustle of entrepreneurialism, investing in one time or another in: an oil well, a trucking company, a tile company, a nutritional supplement company, and many other startups.

After graduating, he focused on real estate, eventually getting blind-sided by the Great Recession. Losing everything, he and his business partner reviewed the how’s and the why’s of what had happened. They learned the lessons- and refocused again finding a unique opportunity in the Midwest. Clayton began buying foreclosed properties in the Midwest for pennies on the dollar- and has flipped over 1000 properties (and counting). He graduated from the University of Utah’s Master of Real Estate Development program in 2017, and is currently transitioning to his lifelong dream business: Wolf Capital- which will focus on remodeling undervalued apartment complexes.

Clayton is a single dad to an amazing 12 year old and two ex-step twin daughters. Clayton loves football, competed on the American Ninja Warrior, and landed a backflip behind his wakeboard boat on Utah Lake on January 25th, 2020. He prefers the summer, but is proud to be the first boat in the “Utah Lake Winter Wakeboard Club.


Alan Walker, UVREIA Secretary
