Many of our past guests on the show have referenced the Jacksonville real estate market in their lists of rising, hot Florida markets. The area has been making a steady recovery since the economic recession and investors are taking notice. With a stable economic base and opportunity in a variety of asset classes, the Jacksonville real estate market has a lot to like for investors.
Maxwell Lee and Kelly Lei, of Glocal Network, know firsthand the appeal of the Jacksonville real estate market. Two years ago, Kelly and Maxwell both left traditional, W-2 income careers for a life in real estate investment and started Glocal Network, a real estate investment firm based out of Jacksonville. Though the company is young, they have a combined portfolio of individually owned and partnered investments of over 20 properties in a diverse collection of asset classes. Kelly’s brokerage and agent’s license combined with Maxwell’s hometown knowledge of the Jacksonville real estate market have established Glocal Network as a leading investor in the Jacksonville real estate market.
