Rudy was born and raised in LA and he's a driving force for change on the tough side of town where investors feared to tread. Now, while real estate markets across the country are in decline, LA is booming. Rudy and his team at City Housing Development and Piedmont Financial are buying and selling three houses a month, making the area more valuable, and pulling in an average profit of $50,000 per flip. As a street savvy kid, Rudy never dreamed he would achieve this level of success — he started out renovating houses himself and still isn't afraid to get his hands dirty when he has to. At the same time, he's comfortable mingling with LA's A-list and turning on the charm to develop personal relationships that are good for business. When he isn't flipping houses, he's hunting for other money-making opportunities — most he recently opened a hip, neighborhood sushi restaurant, named for his daughter Mia, and a popular bar and restaurant, Marty's, named for his son.
