Dean Graziosi’s Background
Dean Graziosi was born and raised in Marlboro, New York. He is the son of Paul Graziosi and Gloria Post and is the younger of two children. His childhood was difficult, as his family faced many financial challenges and moved more than 20 times before he was 19 years old. Dean Graziosi did his first real estate investment well over 20 years ago and has never stopped fine-tuning his craft and investing year after year. In one of his first investments, Dean bought and fixed up a run-down apartment building in his hometown, and he purchased it with no money out of pocket. This interesting story of his first venture into real estate investing is told in his first real estate book, the New York Times Best Seller Be A Real Estate Millionaire: Secret Strategies for Lifetime Wealth Today.
Dean Graziosi and His Career Achievements
After various successful real estate investments, Dean dove into the real estate education arena when he created his first training course based on his personal experience: Think A Little Different. After years of success with this program, he went on to write his first book in May 2006.
Titled Totally Fulfilled, it was published by Vanguard Press and it immediately hit the New York Times Best Seller list. This book explains Dean’s unique “core” approach to optimal results, success, and fulfillment in all areas of life.
Dean’s second book, Be A Real Estate Millionaire: Secret Strategies for Lifetime Wealth Today, also published by Vanguard Press, was the fastest best-selling real estate book of 2007 and 2008 and made the bestseller lists of the New York Times, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, and Amazon.com.
In January 2009, Dean’s third release, Profit From Real Estate Right Now, a step-by-step guide to take even a novice through their first profitable investment, was an immediate hit. Within 90 days it surpassed the monthly sales of his previous bestseller.
In 2002 Dean Graziosi formed Dean Enterprises, LLC as the creation and production company for his real estate information products. Dean Enterprises exclusively produces all of Dean’s infomercials and books.
