Charles Sells began his career investing in tax liens at the age of 23. Like many of us, he was enticed by the simplicity and profitability often conveyed in popular coaching programs and weekend workshops. However, experience taught him that success required more than a simple snap of the fingers. So, at 26, Charles kicked the pitchmen to the curb and started his own business, helping investors discover realistic profits investing in distressed real estate. The model was simple: use his growing knowledge, integrity and tenacity to help others grow alongside him, in experience and in profits. One investor at a time, Charles has built a reputable business helping individuals invest passively in everything from tax liens to the ever-so-popular fix-and-flip. Fast-forward 20 years and Strategic Passive Investments has transacted hundreds of millions of dollars in distressed real estate investments on behalf of nearly 1,000 investors worldwide. Charles and his team at SPI have taken the stress out of investing in distressed real estate, by enabling investors to have their individual investments remain in their name and their control, retaining 100% ownership, with Charles and The SPI team at the helm to make certain those investments remain profitable.
