Greg Lafferty

Managing Partner

Greg, a Cabarrus County native, graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Aerospace Engineering and a minor in Business Management from North Carolina State University.  He worked as a co-op student with GE Aircraft Engines, and later spent several years working with NASA.  Seeing real estate investing as a tangible method of building wealth, he bought his first rental property in 1996 and quickly built a diversified portfolio of properties.  Over the last 20 years he has owned and/or managed single family, multi-family, and commercial properties in three states and still maintains a portfolio of properties in the Charlotte, NC area. With a strong background in sales & marketing, his passion for business, teaching others and mentoring has propelled many of his actions in the business realm. He is passionately driven to ethical excellence in all he does, including breathing New Life into the local community.

Our Astonishing Subcontractors

& Partners

Not only are they amazing at their own work, they have made our business possible and enabled us to thrive. Without them, we wouldn't be breathing New Life into communities ... it would be more like breathing sawdust.
