John McNellis

John McNellis, a successful real estate developer from northern California, set out to write a book with one goal: to make advice about real estate development readily available to those looking to enter the field.  The book acts as a friendly mentor for young people who may think about owning, developing or investing in real estate someday.  Aspiring developers can get advice in person when McNellis visits Ohio University Nov. 29 from 5 – 7 p.m. in Baker Center 240-242 as part of the Center for Entrepreneurship’s guest lecturer series.

McNellis will talk about his book, “Making It In Real Estate: Starting as a Developer,” beginning at 5 p.m. with a networking reception, followed by his presentation at 5:30 p.m., and a question-and-answer session afterward. A limited number of complimentary copies of his book will be available at the event, with book signings by McNellis immediately following.

The book is filled with tips and information based on McNellis’ 35 years of experience as a developer, as well as his training in real estate law. He shares the lessons he learned and mistakes he made while explaining why real estate development is a great side endeavor that can yield significant financial benefits over time. McNellis understands that for the everyday person, becoming a successful developer can be a challenging and costly venture. He shares the realities of the business to make potential developers aware of the kind of issues they may face.
