Amy N Jones
Amy started her real estate experience by pulling weeds in Pomona in 1991 for a Slurpee! Her father later purchased a fourplex, and Amy got the opportunity to help him rehab it in the late 90’s. Adventurous and ambitious, she moved herself to Colorado in ’99 and pursued a restaurant management career.
In 2001, Amy became the youngest general manager ever promoted by the national chain. She went on to earn prestigious awards including top 3% in the nation in performance and profitability. Over her career, she “flipped” 13 restaurants from the lowest profit stores to the highest profiting stores in their markets. Known for performance and leadership she became the above store training leader for all store level managers. She has trained and developed over 200 managers.
While managing restaurants, Amy also completed her Bachelor’s in Business Management. She graduated with a 3.97 GPA while running the number one profiting store in her market.
In 2003, she found, managed, and was responsible for her father’s fourplex in Colorado Springs. This was her father’s response to her request to learn more about real estate investing. In 2005, Amy moved to California to work side-by-side with her father and manage his portfolio including single family renovations to out-of-state apartment complexes.
Amy continued to manage restaurants in the foreground while learning and building real estate knowledge in the background. In 2011, she left the restaurant business for good to focus on real estate full-time. She started her company, Foreclosure Analytics, LLC and began to analyze thousands of foreclosures per day in Los Angeles County. She developed skills and systems to be able to assess and manage the detailed analysis required to make purchasing decisions quickly.
In 2014, Amy moved back to Colorado with the dream of working side-by-side with her father in the business they had both mastered – real estate investing.
