Paul LeJoy is a revered real estate investor and top business building expert who has earned the reputation as a motivational leader in helping others duplicate his success and create wealth. LeJoy believes it is impossible to be poor in America, and he speaks on topics such as being successful with real estate and how anyone with the passion and desire can create wealth in America, regardless of their situation. His is also the founder, owner, and inspiration behind Pacific Realty Partners.
Since immigrating to America from Taiwan in 2001, Paul has set out to live a designer lifestyle, believing the United States offered endless opportunities for anyone to create wealth. He bought his first home in Manteca, California in August 2002 for $280,000 and then sold it in December 2004 for $400,000. This inspired his passion for real estate and would be the stepping stone to his future business success. In December 2004, LeJoy got his real estate license and started practicing the trade part-time in April 2005. This led to the formation of Pacific Realty Partners, a 50 million dollar company that LeJoy built in just a few short years.
His expertise in business is proven in his quick rise in the real estate industry and his ability to succeed no matter what the challenge. When the real estate market changed in 2007, LeJoy had to change with it or face complete failure. He was quick to grasp the trends and started signing up with banks and asset management companies. He soon started getting BPO (Broker Price Opinion) assignments. It didn’t take long before he started getting REOs. LeJoy is now one of the top 20 REO Brokers in the San Francisco Bay Area and considered a top expert in the real estate industry. He is a regular fixture at default industry events and can be spotted easily at major REO conventions such as REOMAC and Fivestar as well as close-knit invites.
LeJoy’s success in real estate was empowered by his business skills and no-excuses approach to success. In 2012, he wrote the book entitled “It’s Impossible to be Poor in America,” a book that teaches others how to duplicate his success by using their passion to create wealth through real estate or other business ideas. This book serves as an inspiration and blueprint for anyone, regardless of their experience, income, or background. To date, he has helped multiple people to increase their income to six figures in just a matter of months.
In addition to his impressive track record of building wealth and teaching others to do the same, LeJoy has traveled the world extensively.
