Meet Our Panel

Monte Gillespie:

Hi Everyone – My name is Monte Gillespie of Monte Buys Houses. Along with my investment company I also run a construction company, CSI Constructions Services, Inc. I currently reside in the city of Orange, California. My interests include traveling, going to the beach, working out and martial arts.

We started out in 1992 as general contractors, providing most of the new home builders in 4 counties with temporary man power services to get new homes ready for the homebuyers final walk thru. We would perform trade related repairs after walk thru and homeowner move in.

The recession hit new housing hard in 2008 and by 2009 we were looking for something else to do. Through a relationship and a stroke of luck we started buying REO’s to flip from Chase Bank through a non-profit at a 20% discount before they went on the MLS. In hindsight starting out in a down market was a blessing, as we had to learn how to buy and sell in each of the 4 quadrants in the real estate cycle.

We try to keep several flips going at a time so we are always learning, improving and adapting to changes in our markets, which consist of Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

As the demand for new housing increased, in 2015 we were able to start working with the new home builders again. Having manpower working for home builders has been a huge benefit for us since we use our own construction company to do the rehabs for our investment company. This way, we don’t have to deal with general contractors or worry about having to keep our people busy between rehabs.
Jennifer Shenbaum:

Hi, I’m Jennifer, and I buy houses!

I love buying & fixing up houses.

It’s a passion of mine, one I didn’t get to indulge in until I quit my regular job and was able to focus on it full time. Prior to buying and selling houses, I worked in the corporate world recruiting executives for companies. I realized I really enjoyed talking to people and helping them solve some of their financial difficulties. It’s something I’m really good at doing, which makes it even more enjoyable. I can work at something I enjoy (buying and fixing up houses) and help people in the process – It really doesn’t get much better than that!

As professional home buyers, we’ve earned an A+ BBB Rating and 5-Star Yelp reviews the old-fashioned way – working hard, keeping our promises and by putting you first. We buy houses every week from people all over Southern California who are looking for a great alternative to listing on the MLS.
Sheri Duignan:

Hi Everyone,

My name is Sheri Duignan. I own Real Results Realty, LLC an independently owned and operated HomeVestors Franchise in Orange County. Along with my wholesaling, flipping business I own a rental property company as well with rental properties in 3 states on the East Coast.

I live in Huntington Beach, and live spending time at the beach, doing agility or scent training with my lab, Harley or working out. I started investing in RE in 2004 by accident when I was transferred from Atlanta to Phoenix and we decided to stick a for rent sign in our yard and head west. Since then I have bought several other rental properties.

After fully renovating our first rental when our tenants of 10 years left, I decided flipping was pretty fun. Having no formal Real Estate background and no true sales experience it was a leap of faith. But, in 2016 I decided to get my Real Estate license, quit my full time District Vice President position with a National Fitness chain and go into RE full time. I truly love helping others and to me this is a perfect marriage of what I love most, Real Estate and helping others. The best part of what I do isn’t making the houses pretty, it’s helping brighten people’s lives by solving their problems.

I bought a HomeVestors franchise in 2016 and haven’t looked back. After completing Iris’s 60 -Day challenge and achieving “Warrior” status, I have wholesaled/flipped many homes all over Orange County (and a few in LA/Riverside and San Bernardino.

Not only am I flipping homes, but I am currently working on purchasing a few homes to operate as RCFE’s this coming year for more passive income opportunities.
