FortuneBuilders CEO Than Merrill Announces Company-Wide Expansion

SAN DIEGO, May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At the close of the first quarter of 2016, Than Merrill announced that FortuneBuilders and its partner organizations were on track to experience large growth in the upcoming year. Merrill, CEO of the premier real estate education company, FortuneBuilders, has devoted much of his time to expanding and diversifying other areas and niches of the real estate business.

FortuneBuilders expects to welcome more students to its program this year than any previous year, and has been gearing up for the expected growth. The education company announced plans to double its amount of immersion classes in smaller markets, and add a third more bootcamp live events in larger markets for its students. Additionally, they will grow their students' program offerings by expanding the current curriculum, adding continuous access to calls with real estate coaches, and redesigning their entire online education platform.

"What sets us apart from other real estate education companies is that we are constantly improving, building, and using the systems that we teach to our students," explained CEO Than Merrill. "The better the tools and programs we can provide to our students, the more successful the businesses they develop will be." 

Over the last year, FortuneBuilders' partner investment company CT Homes launched their own development company, Pacific Building and Development, Inc. The company will primarily focus on the CT Homes' internal construction projects, which allows them to cut costs on investment overhead. As a result, FortuneBuilders is now able to instruct their students on how to better manage construction projects, and has added several new construction courses and live training events to their curriculum.

During that same time frame, Grand Coast Capital, an SEC regulated investment fund co-founded by Than Merrill, hit its goal of reaching $100 million in funding. The fund has been growing since its launch in 2013 and generates steady returns for investors through residential and commercial real estate investments. The investment fund is available to students who meet certain requirements and are in need of a hard money lender to close a real estate deal.
