Aaron Amuchastegui is also hoping to share on a broader scale more information about life’s journeys, positive and negative business influences like books and practices, and what he is learning about his current hobbies like fitness, photography, and gardening. Aaron’s human guinea pig concept isn’t unique, and follows the path of many successful authors and businessmen who are making their mark sharing the secrets they have learned, rather than solely capitalize on them.
From 2005-2009, Mr. Amuchastegui served as the division manager for the southern California operations of a large privately owned homebuilder. As the real estate and new construction market started changing dramatically, so did his experience. In 2008, Aaron gained experience with distressed assets while consulting on valuation and assessment packages of large bank liquidation sales after banks were taken over by the fed. With portfolio note values totalling over $1 Billion, and assets spread through 7 states, these valuations led to a new understanding of the current real estate market.
Through AMA Construct Inc., Mr Amuchastegui has managed the acquisition and sales of more than 700 single family homes across 9 states. His company has developed proprietary software to track employees, contractors, agents, and properties to help manage assets nationally.
He is a general contractor, and was a founding partner of Triforma Capital Inc, a real estate investment company, and Homerock LLC, a real estate asset management company.
His real estate companies hit their peaks in 2012. In 2014, the market changed dramatically and buying abilities decreased from 30 homes per month to 2-4 homes per month. Aaron re-evaluated his operations and through the help of many concepts from business authors has found ways to reduce operational overhead dramatically by decreasing inefficiencies and individual output 10-fold. It was a very difficult transition to revamp a business after annual gross income fell to what was previously an average month.
