Meet Our Expert Presenters: Randy Hughes

Rundy Hughes, Mr. Land Trusts

He started life out on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. His father was an alcoholic and his mother was left to raise four children on a clerk’s wages. None of his relatives owned their own business . . . everyone worked for wages.

His father charged the weekly groceries so that the family would have food on the table. There was no stable income for any future education much less the current needs of the family.

No intellectual or financial direction was taught in his schools or church.  No blood relative had anything to offer other than “working for the man” at an hourly wage. Bank savings and financial security was what only the rich had. He was doomed for financial failure and unhappiness for the rest of his life.

Randy knew that there MUST be a better way to live. He decided to break the cycle of poverty in his family genes. Education came first. Randy graduated from Eastern Illinois University and began buying single family homes for rental while in college. After college, the Randy tried many different types of businesses, but always came back to the Single Family Home as the IDEAL investment. Since purchasing his first rental house in 1969, Randy hasn’t looked back!

Today, Randy has purchased over 200 houses. He has lived the life of having nothing and will not let that happen again. Randy’s primary goal now is to teach others how to break the cycle of poverty. Randy teaches real estate investment courses throughout the United States. He has written Privacy and Asset Protection books as well as home study courses. Randy’s most popular publications are his Land Trust Made Simple® home study courses and live seminars.

Randy has written extensively for local and national real estate publications. He has taught real estate classes at the University of Illinois, Parkland College and Elgin Community College.  Randy has been a licensed Continuing Education Instructor for the Illinois Association of REALTORS® for 25 years.
