Topic: Making the Leap from Agent to Investor
Keeley Toro has been a full-time real estate agent since 2005. She has pivoted her business through various market cycles including as a listing agent for foreclosures/distressed properties during the housing crisis. That experience led her to work with investors, become an investor herself (alongside her husband), and create a niche business helping other investors design and sell their fix and flip properties.
Mark started his career in lending at the tail-end of the housing boom and fell in love with real estate. In 2011 he transitioned to Wealth Management, working with Affluent and High Net Worth families and began flipping houses shortly after. In 2015 he stepped away from work to pursue a full-time MBA program at UF and then took a role as a National Sales Leader role for Equifax where he consulted with the nation's leading financial institutions to identify risk and opportunity within their portfolios. While the new role was fulfilling and had massive potential for growth, Mark set a personal goal in 2020 to be in a capital position to leave corporate America and pursue real estate investing and development full time by 40. Turning 40 in February, Mark has exited corporate America as planned to expand his real estate and development business alongside his wife.
Mark and Keeley Toro were married in 2010 and have two children. They have been investing in fix and flip properties for a decade and work as a team with Mark handling the business and finance side of things while Keeley specializes in the construction design, marketing, and disposition of their projects.
