My Story

Mr. Jay Morrison, also known as “Mr. Real Estate” is considered by many to be the pioneer of financial education in the urban community. Mr. Morrison is a real estate investor, entrepreneur, best-selling author, speaker, educator, TV personality, social activist, and the CEO and founder of the largest Black-Owned real estate crowdfund in American History, the Tulsa Real Estate Fund (TREF). 
As a former high school dropout, at-risk youth, and three-time felon, Jay made a major life transformation for the better over two decades ago and now uses his life experiences and personal story of triumph to empower and impact the lives of thousands. Mr. Morrison has over 20 years of Real Estate expertise and has educated more than 500,000 students nationwide. It has been his mission since the beginning of his journey to teach the value of wealth building, homeownership, and financial literacy to those who were historically not provided this critical information.
