EP 178: How This Flipper Started in Real Estate Right Out of High School with Dominique Gunderson

business flips wholesale Jun 18, 2021

You don’t have to know everything before getting started in real estate. On today’s episode, we talk with Dominique Gunderson on how she started investing straight out of high school and has since done over 55 flips and wholesale deals.

Your age or experience shouldn’t keep you from diving in. We discuss with Dominique how she got paid to gain valuable real estate experience and education instead of taking on student loan debt and going to college, who she overcame the judgements other would put on her because of her young age, how she got started with little money, and why she transitioned from wholesaling to flipping. Dominique also shares with her how she decided New Orleans was a great market for her to begin her flipping business.

Dominique Gunderson is a 23-year-old investor who lives in Los Angeles. Ever since she was a young teenager, she knew that she wanted to invest in real estate, so as soon as she graduated high school at 17, she got started and has been hooked ever since! Dominique began investing in the Los Angeles market and got a lot of experience and deals under her belt by wholesaling. A few years later she was ready to branch off and start an investing business fully on her own.

She currently invests in the New Orleans market while still living in Los Angeles. Her primary investment strategy right now is fix and flip, however Dominique plans on building a rental portfolio as well. She has completed 56 flips and wholesale deals. In her free time, she loves doing anything outdoors, but surfing is her biggest hobby. She also love spending time and traveling with her husband, and serving at her church.

On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Dominique including:

  • How you can get paid to gain real estate knowledge
  • Why you should be more concerned with the process and not the results
  • The reasons she chose to invest in New Orleans
  • How the skills she learned from wholesaler benefit her flipping business
  • How she overcomes those who doubt her
