Mark Ainley is co-founder of GC Realty & Develoment, LLC and the founder of GC Realty Investments (GCRI), an investment real estate company. GCRI was started because there was a need for high quality investment properties that investors could buy for cash flow. Mark recognized this need from traveling across the United States talking to other investors that wanted to buy property but were unable to find good returns in their local market.
Prior to starting GCRI, Mark had been an investor since 2003. He started slowly by flipping condos and had some buy and holds but by 2009 Mark and his team were purchasing 2-3 properties a month. Mark and his team have successfully renovated and stabilized over 200 properties since 2003 all while managing his full service real estate property management & brokerage firm.
Mark has been invited to speak at many events most recently as a panelist at an unofficial Bigger Pockets event in November 2014. He has been on several radio interviews and podcasts to discuss his extensive knowledge about property management and investing. Mark was awarded “Member of the Year” by the Greater O’Hare Association (GOA) and currently serves as a member of the GAO Board of Directors. As well as serving on the board, he is the Chair of the Greater O’Hare Networking Executives V, a new business generation group.
Finally, Mark is President Board of Directors for Well Child Center, a nonprofit that focuses on providing uninsured children with primary and preventative medical care. I love what I do and what we are building so never truly feels like work. We control what “happy” is so that is what allows me to keep control of my life and the influence others have one me. My business partners share the same outlook so really helps us be great leaders.
