On the new show The Deed: Chicago real estate mogul Sean Conlon helps people who are in a bit of trouble with their property project. Conlon, an Irish immigrant who came to the U.S. with just $500 in his pocket, knows a thing or two about hard work, and he’s more than willing to invest in these people - as long as they have a viable business plan.
“I obviously came from Ireland,” said Conlon. “One of my most vivid memories, of course, was my father built a house and when I was 12 (or) 13, the bank came to take it. He was the most incredibly charismatic man but the absolute worst businessman in the world. So that was ingrained in me (at) how important the house was to my mother.”
Though one can make money in this world through a myriad of fashions, owning your own home is usually a solid foundation when it comes to building assets. In the clip below, Conlon explains why real estate is a tried and true manner in building personal wealth.
