Sean Perkin was born in South Africa, but immigrated to the United States in 1979.  He and his family came to La Jolla, California, where they adapted to the American way of life.  Growing up, he was athletically inclined and favored skiing, snowboarding, soccer, gymnastic, and baseball. An avid builder since birth he was always playing with LEGO, erector sets and building blocks, using them to construct buildings, houses, towns and cities. He continues this passion for building things today as an active real estate owner and investor.


Sean Perkin earned his Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Southern California. He was also able to build on this knowledge by developing several skills that he continues to utilize today: branding, design, and marketing.

Early Professional Achievements

After graduating, Sean Perkin struggled to find a job due to the unstable economy. He put his branding knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit to use when he started his own magazine, which he called XSeSS Living.  The innovative magazine included bundled licensed music within each issue. The product was distributed nationally including major retailers.

While working on his magazine, Sean Perkin gained experience in design, marketing, and branding, which enabled him to complete similar work for for entrepreneurs, developers, and a few Fortune 1,000 companies. He later went on to utilize his newfound skills in the real estate business as first a sales agent and then a broker specializing in the sale of apartments, retail and development.

In 2008, Sean Perkin left the brokerage world just prior to the market crash to begin investing in real estate. In that time he and his partners have purchased numerous single family residences and apartments using a variety of ownership structures including LLC’s, General Partnerships and Syndications including several funds. On average the company has acquired between 6-14 assets each year. In 2008 the company was acquiring properties with a resale value of $200-$300 thousand each. Today it has grown dramatically and targets on average an exist price north of $2.5-$3.5 million. Returns over the investment cycle have been dramatic.
