We teach people how to invest in real estate

FortuneBuilders is the premier real estate education company in the country. Founded by nationally recognized real estate investors, we have developed the systems, tools, educational platform and coaching program to accelerate new and existing real estate investor businesses.

FortuneBuilders was the result of a convergence of three passions; Real Estate, Entrepreneurship and Teaching. As successful investors we discovered the freedom and lifestyle these passions afforded us. FortuneBuilders is our vehicle to share, teach and inspire investors everywhere. In 2004, Than Merrill, Konrad Sopielnikow, Paul Esajian and JD Esajian started CT Homes, a real estate investment business. The systems and processes they created to scale quickly, maximize profits and reduce risk lead to their rapid success. These systems became the foundation for the FortuneBuilders educational platform and coaching program.

FortuneBuilders offers the most advanced and comprehensive investing education. Our flagship program, Mastery Coaching, is a one-on-one coaching program that provides students with all the tools, resources, knowledge and systems necessary to accelerate their business and reduce risk.

Mastery Coaching

Top professionals in any industry know coaching is an invaluable resource, with some surveys indicating 70% of Fortune 500 CEOs utilize business coaching. We believe to be the best, you have to constantly surround yourself with people who have a different perspective and have already achieved what you desire. Mastery is our program that allows investors to reach their financial and personal goals by learning how to strategically invest in real estate. Mastery students receive unparalleled support through one-on-one coaching, foundational systems and course materials and exclusive access to our live training events. >

Than's 3-day course is truly a life-changer!

Than's 3-day course is truly an eye-opener to anyone that has never invested before. It goes beyond investing, and into an entry-level financial education that is a life-changer to someone like myself and my son that didn't understand or even know the basic financial principles as it relates to debt, borrowing money, and real estate investing. It's totally worth attending this training. It's a real investment in yourself and the ones you love most. I highly recommend bringing your significant other, your teenage children, and any other family member you can think of that's suffering financially. God bless Than and his team at FortuneBuilders for bringing this learning opportunity to my city.
