A native of Chicago, Illinois, Dre Evans joined a gang on the South Side of Chicago at the age of 12.
But one terrifying moment, with bullets flying past his head in an attempt to kill him, he had to decide: was his desire to belong and find reputation in the streets worth dying for? Just a few days prior, a man he considered his enemy spoke to him about the opportunity of a lifetime. After years of violence through fights, drive-by shootings, and other actions, Andre decided to pursue a better path in life. What happened next shocked the city of Chicago and made history.
In 2016 Dre graduated from the U.S Naval Academy at the top of his class with a degree in Engineering and became an MIT Fellow and Truman Scholar.
Dre’s journey into real estate started when he bought his first $2 million-dollar 4-unit property in the Pacific Beach, San Diego. Today, Andre owns 98 apartment unit doors, co-hosts the #1 real estate meetup in San Diego called” Opportunity Knocks” (450+ members), and is the host of the “Multifamily by the Slice” real estate podcast. He is also an expert on the San Diego rental market and was featured on KUSI News San Diego to talk about the economic outlook of real estate trends, housing, and rent growth within San Diego.
He is an author, motivational speaker, and the Founder and CEO of “That’s My Property”, a firm that specializes in purchasing apartment real estate that not only provides investors with lucrative, stable returns to achieve financial freedom, but that provides financial education and outreach to young adults and youth in underserved communities.
He is an experienced Naval Officer. Where he has been responsible in leadership roles for hundreds of people in high-stress environments and is experienced in accounting, sales, and the management of over $3.8 million in high value military assets.
