Transforming Communities, One Property at a Time

The James Journey

The year 2002 opened up a new avenue for Odis D. James III—real estate. With his father’s guidance and decades of experience, he started as a Salesperson and Multifamily leasing consultant. It was not long before the duo opened their first office in San Jose, CA, in 2003, followed by the addition of a mortgage brokerage in 2005 to their list of services.

Unfortunately, the 2008 housing crisis hit hard, and in 2010, they had to close their doors for good. It was during this time that Odis established Inside the Truth Ministries, Inc., a nonprofit organization that shared the message of love through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Although he funded it from his own pocket for three years, he eventually closed it to focus instead on personal development.

In 2018, Odis created a mentorship program under his private company, 4 Data Points Academy, using his knowledge of residential and multifamily real estate. He began buying real estate to create opportunities for potential buyers who faced obstacles to homeownership and shared his investment strategies through social media and various websites.

Today, Odis is known as an expert in single-family home flipping, and he’s drawing on his regional manager experience to focus on multifamily acquisitions and development. His passion is to advance the economic position of African Americans through education, strategic investing, and relationship-building. As such, he concentrates on pre-gentrified neighborhoods of color, promoting ownership, commerce, and prosperity. To share his secrets to success with others, Odis gives away his expertise and knowledge to help those who are going through challenging times in their business.

Odis is an expert in single-family flips and consistently looks for opportunities in pre-gentrified neighborhoods of color. In addition, he holds a real estate investing educational program where he shares his strategies for overcoming obstacles to homeownership.

The Vision

Gain The Knowledge

According to a 2021 report, the global real estate investment market was estimated at $11444.7 billion and is expected to reach an astounding $30575.5 billion in 10 years, seeing exponential growth with a projected annual CAGR of 10.7%. Learning about investment education and opportunities can help investors maximize their returns, especially when it comes to real estate investments.

While real estate portfolio strategies can help investors manage their portfolios, multi-family acquisitions and development can help them gain a bigger return. The right mentorship and coaching can also be invaluable for investors looking to gain better insights into the real estate market.

Odis’ Community Outreach initiative has created opportunities for potential home buyers, encouraging them to invest in real estate to create wealth and financial prosperity. Overall, the goal is to empower individuals and families who want to achieve long-term financial freedom.
