We had the good fortune of connecting with Ray Spencer and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ray, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
We have created a solution, whereas , we’ve learn how to become a bank through private funding and providing homes to these who not not otherwise qualify through transition standards at a local bank. We provide homes and restore city’s and allow families to grow, build, and create a safe environment to live in and build generational wealth.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business consists of 3 different structures: single family acquisition and Dispostion in 3 states. Multi family 4-200 unit apartments) acquisition and disposition in 11 states, and creative financing strategies to offer minorities an opportunity to purchase a home via rent to own… we raise capital from young adults who become athletics at a young age and don’t have the financial education to sustain a livelihood, we have funds and programs that allow them to invest in providing affordable housing to minorities and learn how to create lasting wealth. For us, it’s the faces of those we help that excites us. I grow up living in an apartment room with three brothers and we tend to misunderstand how safe a home feels and what it does to child development

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to Prestons steak house. For dinner and taco boys for lunch the Tempe town lake is where we would have tons of fun at.and rent a few boats.. then head to flagstaff to enjoy downtown and enjoy the Grand Canyon.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Psycho cybernetics is one book that helped me develop my mind after surviving & losing my mind to serving 11 years in prison. God is everything to me, I would not be alive if it wasn’t for him and through him I was able to survive gangs, prison, and working on being reformed into Society and providing a dream for me to help others achieve home ownership….
