Clint Harp can be found regularly on HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper as the dumpster diving, reclaimed wood loving carpenter. After quitting his sales job in 2011 to pursue his dream of building furniture and owning his own company, the last thing he expected was to be a nationally known carpenter featured on HGTV.  

Now, together with his wife Kelly and their 3 kids, the Harps spend each day pursuing their dream and blazing the new trail of owning their own company. Harp Design Co. provides quality furniture and home goods to customers all across the U.S. and abroad. Constantly adjusting to unexpected national exposure, the Harps work hard each day to grow as a family and a business whose core values are love, beauty, and creativity.  

Clint appears as a supporting role in Fixer Upper, helping his close friends and stars Chip and Joanna Gaines as they remodel homes in Waco, Texas. The show attracted more than 19 million viewers its first season, is currently airing season two and shooting the third season. Clint takes recycled and reclaimed wood, usually found pieces, and creates beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces meant to bring families together, which the Gaines incorporate into their final remodel and home designs.  



Mother and daughter duo Karen Laine and Mina Starsiak are setting out to revitalize their hometown of Indianapolis one property at a time. They’re buying up run down homes and transforming them into stunning urban remodels. With Mina’s real estate know-how and Karen’s no-nonsense legal background, these ladies are unstoppable in getting a property they want and enlisting their family’s help with demo and construction. When it comes to exciting new homes in the city of Indianapolis, it all comes down to Two Chicks and a Hammer.

Keeping the exterior appearance true to the traditional style of the neighborhood, while using energy efficient modern materials, they update the interiors: welcoming floor plans, hardwood flooring, high ceilings, oversized floor moldings, thoughtful lighting, custom cabinetry, all new energy efficient appliances, no wasted space and so much more. Mina and Karen will next star in the new HGTV series, Good Bones.

  >> Special Topic: Intelligence in Real Estate Valuations

Real estate valuation is one of the most important part of your due diligence process. The problem is, real estate valuation is complex and extremely time-consuming.

Finding the Good Deals - Fast - and First  -- The MLS Deal Finder System

Let's face it, finding discounted houses and rental properties is our biggest challenge right? Without finding a "Deal" nothing else matters and we have no real estate investing business. MLS Deal Finder Interactive tools can help you with delivering "Deals" right to your inbox within minutes of being listed, before anyone else knows about them. See below what you will learn and RSVP here Today!

>> Yes, the MLS is the biggest market to find properties at a discount

>> Learn how to be first to place an offer

>> Learn the best way to work with Licensed agents

>> CMA training

>> Investors must be CMA experts

>> Understand what is a good CMA

>> Why all CMAs are different

>> Learn about Automated Valuations

>> What is an AVM: How computer systems make you dumber

>> The difference between Zillow, Trulia and MLS

The MLS is the largest and most convenient source of investor properties (Below Market / Buy & Hold). But there are three catches.

1. Searching and analyzing the hundreds of new listing each day takes a huge amount of time and effort.

2. Plus, since there are lots of investors competing in this search, the delay of the search can cause the deals to be gone before you even find them.

3. Due diligence is difficult & time consuming

>> With this Power Tool, the searching and analysis is done for you, automatically. The bargain deals are delivered to you, within an hour of listing, including a CMA and an analysis if projected profit. The key, and the real innovation here, is the CMA automation. This tool can provide a quantum leap in your ability to find and capture the best deals.

>> Available for agents and investors. Even agents that have access to the MLS, prefer to use MLS Deal Finder to find & analyze deals.
