Marv Nicholson Realtor ®
Marv is a second generation Broker whose family owned a boutique Agency in the south end of Seattle. Marv’s Father through the agency had access to the purchase of fixer-upper HUD homes. Dad was flipping homes long before the term was being used.
Upon graduating High School, Marv began his career as an independent contractor. The inspiration for this came from those early days as dad’s helper on these weekend HUD fixer-uppers. Parallel to the contracting career, Marv was also evaluating and purchasing distressed homes as investment vehicles (again, dad’s influence). Some of these properties won big and a couple not so big, but all of those experiences had value. Most of the “risk-level” was reduced through Marv’s construction experiences and prior teachings by dad. But without the construction knowledge, it would have been difficult to make an informed evaluation of the investment properties for sure.
It wasn’t long after Marv’s transition to Licensed Expert Advisor did he realize that it would be a benefit to his client to also hold a Mortgage License.
