Accountability Specialist / Real Estate Coach
Never satisfied with working traditional 9-5 jobs, Jason Little started researching other opportunities in the late 90’s. Real estate seemed promising, so he purchased a few books as well as a “no money down” system from one of those late infomercials. While his intentions were good, living life as a 20-something got in the way and he never took action.
In 2003, shortly after meeting his soon-to-be wife, Krystal, they purchased their first home together. While mortgage companies were qualifying just about anyone for mortgages, they purchased a second home and rented out the first. However, it didn’t take long before their inexperience caught up to them. After a series of evictions and the inability to fill the vacancy, they lost the rental to foreclosure and swore off real estate altogether.
Tragically, in May 2011, Jason lost his left arm below the elbow when the SUV he and his wife were riding in hydroplaned in the rain and lost control. When the insurance settlement he received wasn’t enough money to buy a house or to be able to pay off their debt, Jason had a tough choice to make. That choice ultimately changed their lives nearly as much as the accident did. “We knew we had to make the money last. We knew, unlike paying off credit cards, investing in our education would pay for itself over and over. We also knew real estate makes more millionaires than any other industry, we couldn’t allow the loss of my arm to be in vain. Getting back into real estate was our only hope.”
The Littles signed up for the Elite Legacy classes and became deeply involved by volunteering their time at their local real estate investment association, the second largest in the country. After quite a few successful transactions in an extremely short period of time, they received numerous awards for the deals they put together and for their work as volunteers. Then, in 2014, he and his wife were nominated and inducted into the International Hall of Fame. Jason has held multiple workshops and lead the county chapter meeting for their local association, as well as been a guest speaker at multiple real estate seminars.
