Get to know Rene Picanes Jr.
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida and went to college at Florida International University, just minutes away from home. After graduating with a dual business degree in finance and interantional business, I moved to Jacksonville, Florida to attend Florida Coastal School of Law. I completed my J.D. degree and decided I wanted to be in real estate instead of practice law. I moved to Tampa, Florida and started working as a property manager. I wanted to be more involved so I moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and started wholesaling and flipping properties with my friend and mentor, Eric Bodiwala, President of My Fast Home Buyers, Inc.
Currently, I am still working as a Real Estate Consultant at My Fast Home Buyers, Inc. We specialize in wholesale deals and fix and flip properties. In addition, we invest in properties through foreclosure auctions, tax lien sales/auctions, and more traditional real estate investment avenues.
I am also Owner/President of Pic Real Estate & Investments, Co. We are a real estate investment firm specializing in residential and commercial properties, note investing, distressed mortgages, mortgage modifications, property renovations, REO sales, etc. We communicate with banks, lending institutions, and hedge funds across the country to buy non-performing notes for our portfolio. Our goal is to develop a portfolio of short and long term investments through acquisitions of NPNs, foreclosures, tax sales, etc. via our established network of banks, lending institutions, and hedge funds across the country.
