Phoenix, AZ, May 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- A full-service solutions provider for residential real estate investors, Investment Property Experts (“IPX”), announces a new member of their Investor Relations team. Brian Long will serve as the company’s investor relations manager to help educate investors about their portfolio options and to expand the IPX pool of investors.
Brian Long joins IPX as a 23-year professional in business to business sales consulting. His most recent undertaking was as owner of a consulting firm in Chicago (Oak Park), IL, where he managed residential real estate. After relocating to the Phoenix, AZ area (Ahwatukee) in late 2011, Brian sought out opportunities for his own rental property investments and found IPX. His personal experience as an investor with IPX led to the career match and recruitment into the company’s Investor Relations team. Brian’s focus is to enlighten investors—those planning for retirement or already retired--about the effectiveness of turn-key rental property investment and the unique proposition IPX offers.
IPX offers a turn-key, hassle-free solution for investors by acquiring distressed properties, renovating them, and making them available to investors at a discount. At the time of purchase, the investor has the option to contract with a tenant buyer, screened and groomed by IPX’s mortgage and credit repair department, to purchase the home from the investor at the market price after one, two, or three years or to place a regular tenant for a long term rental. Brian teaches the investors to think in a more entrepreneurial way about their investments and helps gauge the appropriateness of adding investment real estate to their portfolio.
“Many investors don’t think about real estate as a component for portfolio diversification,” stated IPX Co-Founder and Managing Partner Steve Taplin. “Brian’s skills in consulting and sales and his personal experiences as an investor make him the perfect person to inform and support IPX’s potential and existing investors,” Taplin continues. Because of their formula of helping investors repair stagnant portfolios and helping families repair credit to become home buyers, IPX has been called, “a for-profit version of Habitat for Humanity”.
The founders of IPX, Steve Taplin and Daniel Butterfield own and operate the various companies needed to cover all phases of a property investment. They also host the hugely popular radio show “Real Estate – STRAIGHT TALK” on Money Radio 1510 AM. From start to finish, they support both the investor and the soon-to-be homeowner through every step of the process. To that end, a team of 40 in the Arcadia district of Phoenix and approximately 100 in their marketing technology center in Cebu, Philippines provide the expertise and tools to be successful.
