Born in Coos Bay, Oregon Jeremy considers himself a citizen of the world. As a Navy brat, he lived and grew up all over the world. Jeremy joined the Navy out of high school as a Nuclear Machinist Mate on a fast attack submarine. Later, he worked as a dishwasher, line cook, fence builder, and baker before he started in real estate in 2006. Jeremy and his wife, Jeanna, moved to Detroit in 2007 to take advantage of what he believes is still the greatest real estate opportunity of his generation. He’s flipped, wholetailed, wholesaled, rented, land contracted, turn key rentaled, as well as listed and sold over 600 deals. He lost everything twice and is still setting things right from the last failure. Jeremy loves all things farming, wild harvesting, permaculture farming, dogs, podcasting, and all things dealing with smoke and bbq. Jeremy and Jeanna started Renegade Detroit Investors in 2008; RDI is now the largest real estate investor meeting in Detroit. He runs his own team at KW Renegade Realty Group, covering all of South East Michigan and working all 6 counties. Jeremy wants to crush everything.
