Munif Ali

Founder & Chairman
Team Lead
CA DRE# : 018949273

I evolved from very humble beginnings – I grew up in a housing project; was raised by a single mother who was illiterate but hard-working and committed to our family. I was a latchkey kid, and the library kept me off the streets and in a place where my mother felt I was “safe.” Entrepreneurs gave me my first jobs, taught me finance fundamentals, and the military reinforced the discipline I used to build billion-dollar businesses today.

I have experienced ups and downs, and I can teach you how to rise and recover financially and in your pursuit of life. At 24, I was a millionaire, and by 30, I had amassed a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio.
