Dean Graziosi is a well-known American real estate expert, author, entrepreneur, and inspirational speaker who has released a series of best-selling book, audio podcasts, and videos pertaining to successful investments in the real estate industry.
The mogul is also a known TV personality, with an active column on Medium, an online publishing platform.
While an entrepreneur, his primary source of income was in real estate investment, with his other occupations revolving around that subject…
While he has been tightlipped on finances and his net worth, that has not stopped people from guessing, with most online assessments noting an estimated net worth of $43 million. However, with his growing popularity, his net worth is bound to grow tremendously.
Dean Graziosi’s Early Life
Born and raised in Marlboro, New York on 20 November 1968, Graziosi is the youngest son. His parents, Paul Graziosi and Gloria Post, divorced while he was only three years old, with the young Graziosi living with his mother until he was 13, where he then lived with his father as per the divorce agreement.
While positioning himself as a successful authority in real estate, his upbringing wasn’t so riddled with privilege. Adolescence was difficult as his family struggled financially, with the Graziosi family moving more than 20 times before Dean was 20 years old.
He went to Marlboro High School, never attending college. Instead of going to further his education, he decided to take a chance and delve into one of his first entrepreneurial successes as an auto arbitrageur.
This new endeavor required buying cars on the low, fixing them, and then selling them for a profit. During this time, he also completed his first real estate transaction.
While not having the capital to secure property, Dean bought a rundown apartment that didn’t require money down. This event paid off, with this first real estate deal catapulting him into continued success.
Dean is currently married to Jonelle Ward. He lives in Phoenix, Arizona, sharing a home with his two children Breana and Brody.
After several successful real estate investments, Graziosi ventured into real estate education while creating his first training course based on his personal experiences in the industry…
One of the first reiterations of his course was named Think a Little Different.
This course came in the form of several CDs and accompanying books. The book quickly became highly popular, especially with those who were interested in the ins and outs of real estate.
After the success of the courses, he went on to write his first book named Totally Fulfilled in 2006…
It quickly hit the New York Times bestseller list.
Riding the coattails of his commercial success from his course and book, he released his second book named Be A Real Estate Millionaire: Secret Strategies For Lifetime Wealth Today, which was released in 2007.
In 2009, the third release of his book named Profit from Real Estate Right Now, which follows a step by step guide to building wealth in the real estate niche.
Within 90 days of its release, the book surpassed the monthly sales of his previous bestseller. To this day it is referred to by many in the industry due to its transparency and easy-to-follow guide for novices in the industry.
In 2002, he created Dean Enterprises, a limited liability organization, and production company that was created to market his information products. The company sold his books, as well as launching a website that capitalized on the community that he has built throughout the years.
While everyone else around him was busy trying to oversell, Dean took a more measured approach by simply sharing the truth when it comes to being successful in real estate investment.
He has also made it a point to give back to the community, taking his time to take care of his role as co-founder of The Centurion Mastermind Group, which has raised millions for philanthropic organizations.
In 2007 he also founded the Operation Free Home, a program that offered free housing for the disenfranchised and homeless for one year.
Dean has also released a very successful book in 2016 called “Millionaire Success Habits” which has helped me personally overcoming my negative thoughts.
Dean Graziosi has recently partnered with a team of successful business entrepreneurs to announce the launch of their latest product named the Knowledge Business Blueprint.
Developed over many years, this blueprint is a culmination of innovative ideas and concepts and makes them digestible even for those who aren’t savvy to investments.
The main goal of the product is to remove barriers to entry and to help individuals utilize the experience and knowledge that he and his partners have gathered during their tenure as entrepreneurs and real estate investors.
What’s Next for Dean?
Dean is teaming up with Tony Robbins and Russell Brunson to release a new course and software to teach people how to create and run profitable masterminds. This product is expected to be life-changer for a lot of entrepreneurs.
