Kevin Shortle at 2019 Note Investor Summit

With over 20 years of hands-on experience as an investor, national instructor, coach and author, Kevin excels at simplifying real estate and small business strategies through real world examples and experiences that will have you on the edge of your seat and eager for more. In addition, Kevin’s diverse background allows him to easily switch topics in a logical and progressive manner that will increase your understanding and your retention.

Kevin began his real estate career in 1985 as a commercial real estate appraiser. That strong foundation of understanding how to value property would be a key asset as he advanced into writing for a real estate development magazine, starting his own real estate brokerage and becoming a fulltime investor. Through the use of partners and mentors, he is involved in both the real property side and the “paper” side of real estate investing.

Kevin has purchased, renovated, and resold over 150 properties. Most of these properties were purchased without having to use any of his own money. With a special strength in buying government owned properties, Kevin also helped non-profit companies make money. He is a licensed Real Estate Broker and owner of Statewide Realty LLC.

In addition to also being a Licensed Mortgage Broker doing traditional loans, Kevin has brokered over $30 million in private mortgage and note sales. Furthermore, he set up and manages a real estate syndication that provides private loans to real estate investors.

With this experience, he was brought on as a consultant to the nation’s premier rehab lender where he was able to help streamline processing and triple revenues. In addition to further assisting potential borrowers, he was also contracted to create over 20 hours of educational curriculum.

As the only national trainer for NoteSchool, he produced millions in annual sales. In addition, he created an entirely new 3 day training that both captivated and entertained, developed weekly webinars, wrote a weekly news blog, created new monthly content recordings. Outside of the training and research his marketing and content ideas generated millions for the company.

He was recently awarded the 2019 Note Educator of the Year at the NoteWorthy Investor Summit.
