In this special two-part series of Meat and Potatoes, Garrett Clark sits down with visionary entrepreneur, Mike Peregrina, the Co-Founder and CEO of Homie, the groundbreaking real estate platform. Get ready for an inspiring conversation as Mike shares his remarkable journey from growing up in the vibrant city of LA with his mom, experiencing the unfair, confusing, and expensive state of the real estate industry, to becoming the driving force behind one of the most disruptive real estate apps today.
Mike's childhood was marked by his mother's relentless determination to provide a home for them, working multiple jobs and even living in the garage while renting out their house to make ends meet. As he ventured into adulthood and college, Mike took steps to build his future by investing in real estate. However, the 2008 real estate crash shattered his dreams, leaving him with nothing. It was then that he realized the glaring truth: the system was broken. Homeownership, a quintessential dream for all, remained an elusive pipe dream for too many. Something had to change.
