Roger King – Bio
Having been born in Cincinnati, my family moved to southwest Florida when I was 10. By the time I was 14, my father had begun his real estate investing career, a choice that changed all of our lives forever.
I’ve always been passionate about music, and after attending a community college in Gainesville, I decided to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston. There, I met the future ‘who’s-who’ of today’s music industry, and keep in touch with many of them, still in awe of their talent, skill, and the gigs they get!
After Berklee, I formed a real estate investment company with my father and brother in law in Orlando, FL. We would buy, fix & flip, sell, wholesale, lease option and owner-finance properties. I did this for a few years, until I was bitten by the performing bug, and left the company to go on tour playing drums in the ‘neo-swing’ band, Swingerhead. Following four years with that group, I started my own jazz quintet, King ‘Tet, playing straight-ahead jazz all over Florida for several years.
Moving to Los Angeles in 2003, I worked as a kitchen designer, before getting back into real estate at the end of the ‘re-fi boom’ in 2006. I quickly joined a company that was developing condo-hotel resorts in various parts of the world. My job was to raise acquisition capital for the purchase of these properties. Moving to Palm Springs in late 2008, I remained at the company until it became untenable – the economy had taken a plunge.
In 2009, I started wholesaling properties once again. This was excellent timing, and was the precursor to developing my private lending business. Having borrowed a hard money loan on one of our first projects in Orlando in the late ’90’s, I realized that being the bank was definitely what kind of business I wanted to be in, and I’m living that dream today!
I volunteer as much as I can, my first taste of which was with Create Now, a music program for at-risk youth in and around L.A. After I moved to the desert, I spent a lot of time with the Boys & Girls Club here in the Coachella Valley with the jazz and show band, Heatwave. More recently, I’ve joined the board of directors for the Steinway Society of Riverside, heading up their jazz program. Still playing gigs around town, I enjoy hearing great musicians work their craft, and enjoying those conversations.
I travel to LA quite often visiting friends, doing business, or even taking drum lessons, for which I must mention Mr. Bruce Becker. There’s just nobody out there with this expertise and skill. I hold a special place in my heart for all of my musician friends and colleagues that constantly deal with the question, “Where’s my next gig?” My desire is to help each of us build a financially secure future using a fundamentally more conservative approach to investing.
