Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

ED- The Eerie Digest is proud to introduce John Prudhont to our readers. John you have certainly worked you way up the ladder of success in the movie industry, but we understand that this is not where you originally started. Tell us of your early days in the real estate industry.

JP- Thanks so much for inviting me and “hello” to your readers. The funny thing is that I have been singing and acting since I was around 9 years old. The Real Estate and Mortgage Loan side of thing only entered the picture after I received my Bachelor of Arts degree, in History, from CSU, Sacramento in 1991. I kind of “fell into” the Mortgage side of the Real Estate business because I had done well on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT),had enrolled at Lincoln Law School of Sacramento and was looking for a job where I could work during the day and focus on going to Law School at night. A company that was managing an audit of 1st Nationwide Mortgage’s Adjustable Rate Mortage (ARM) Portfolio was looking for people with my analytical background. A very similar economic environment to right now was happening at that time and the residential mortgage industry was trying to avoid lawsuits by ensuring that their ARMs where being billed and credited correctly.

Then, I tested for first my Real Estate Salesperson License and then my R.E. Broker’s license. In 2001 I opened my first Real Estate and Mortgage Loan Corporation, called JMP Financial Group, Inc. and a couple of years later I opened my second corporation of this type called Cash Flow Investments Inc. With the economic turmoil of the past 4 years, the Board of Directors of each Corporation decided to discontinue the operations of each corporation about two years ago. (more…)
