Armando Montelongo, Star of “Flipping Nightmares” and former star of A&E’s “Flip This House”

Armando is the ORIGINAL real estate reality star, and is consistently ranked as one of the most successful Hispanics in business. Don’t miss the very rare opportunity to learn directly from the founder of a company who has invested over one billion dollars in real estate. Armando has been doing this business longer than most people in the industry. This is his passion and it shows.

Starting off with no credit, experience, or knowledge, Armando is now known as one of the top real estate investors in the country. How did he go from living in his family-in-law’s garage to owning a multi-million dollar company?

After deciding to leave California to move back to his hometown in Texas, Armando made his very first deal. His first wholesale introduced him to a whole new world – and it was only the beginning.

As Armando continued buying, rehabbing, and selling more and more properties, he kept in mind what worked and what didn’t work. The more houses he flipped, the more he noticed a pattern. He wrote the pattern out and realized that he had come up with an excellent formula to successfully flip houses. The best part was that he didn’t even have to use his own money.

In his first three years of investing, Armando was able to bring in a net profit of $3 million. As his expertise was increasingly being sought after, Armando created a multi-million dollar real estate education program that helps aspirant house flippers. For instance, Armando’s Flip and Grow Rich System teaches you how to find, fund, fix, and flip properties in the most efficient ways.

Residential real estate and in particular, flipping houses, is the most popular way to get started for anyone looking to get into the property game. Armando got his start in real estate by flipping houses and creating his system to gain the highest profit possible. Even though he has branched into other business ventures, Armando is still very active in residential and commercial real estate.



Every business has a beginning, and this is where you talk about yours. People want to know what opportunity you saw or how your passion led to the creation of something new. Talk about your roots--people wanna know you have some. Thank you for getting to know me . . .

I am a native of the City of Angeles (Los Angeles) CA.  I am the eldest of four children. I always excelled in school because of the structure and foundation my mom set forth.  Education was the #1 priority in her eyes. I love academia! I won the 5th grade spelling bee, received tons of awards for academic excellence throughout my school-aged years.  In high school, I was in honor classes, on the Academic Decathlon, member of the Science Club, a tutor, and the Co-Captain and later Captain of our Drill Team Squad.

I became a teenage mom at the ripe age of 19. It was a worthy struggle. My daughter became my WHY - why I had to graduate from college, why I had to be extremely successful, why I could never be poor, why I have to give back and more importantly WHY I could NEVER quit!

I attended the University Keck School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program on a Full Academic Scholarship, did rotations ranging from Pediatrics to Emergency Medicine, from Dermatology to General Surgery, Cardiology to Orthopedics and many more specialties.

Fast forward, I read an article in the Los Angeles Times newspaper, the classified section that read:  "Earn $5k-$10k a month, easy selling, no territory restrictions, Scientific Breakthrough!" The rest was history.  I joined a Network Marketing company, became the #1 Recruiter in the company and held that status for my 3-year tenure along with becoming the #4 Income Earner.

When people, companies and situations no longer align with your core values, God "shifts" you.  After 3 months of being inactive in my MLM business and simply focusing on personal growth, leadership and traveling, one of my mentors, who at the time was #5 in the world in Network Marketing, suggested that should partner.  I was hesitant but success leaves clues!

He had created over 54 millionaires and 800 six figure income earners. I said YES! and I became one of them! That was then and Here Is Now! I am passionate about helping female entrepreneurs (and the mighty men who allow me) to discover their passion, help others and build a residual income doing so! I am a Speaker, Coach, Trainer and simply would love to work WITH you and FOR you. I look forward to getting to know you, your passion and your business better! I want to G R O W you so you can grow your business.
