 Helping the Homeowner by Buying Delinquent Mortgages with Paul Birkett


While working for Pepsi Co in Ireland, Paul Birkett came to Florida for a conference and discovered a magazine in the hotel lobby that advertised homes for $100K or less. That led him (literally) on the road to buying over thirty rental homes and then, eventually, to buying nearly $20 million in mortgages.

The model for buying delinquent mortgages often involved removing the homeowners and flipping the house, but Paul imagined a more humane business. He realized there was an opportunity to make money and help people keep their homes.
