Jay “Mr. Real Estate” Morrison is an Author, Motivational Speaker, Investor, and Realtor with Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. As a 31 year-old who spent his early adulthood trapped in the streets, his life is a testimony that anything is possible. He has been featured on NBC, BET, and Vibe Magazine for his success, and is the National Spokesman of the No Home Left Behind Foundation. Adopting their goal of “1 Million Educated Homeowners”, Jay has dedicated his life to closing the gap in Minority home ownership. His highly anticipated book, “Hip Hop 2 Homeowners: How WE Build Wealth in America!” (slated for release March 9th 2012) inspired the birth of a Nationwide Tour, appropriately titled “Hip Hop 2 Homeowners.”
The “HIP HOP 2 HOMEOWNERS” Tour (HH2H) is a Youth Empowerment program that targets High Schools and Colleges nationwide, educating students on the Basics of Credit, Wealth, and The Power of Home Ownership.
Many students in America graduate with an understanding of English, Math and History, while real life applications are left to learn on their own. This has caused many High School and College aged students to fall into the trap of irresponsible spending, resulting in poor credit. Given our financial state as a country, it is time for us to teach the next generation how to make better financial decisions. This is the power of the Hip Hop 2 Homeowners Tour.
The programs presentation is innovative, fun, and effective. Jay teaches in a way that is relatable to today’s youth through the utilization of live music, games, and prizes. Over 10,000 High School students have been educated to date.
The Hip Hop 2 Homeowners Tour is a partner of the No Home Left Behind Foundation. The Foundation provides Credit Counseling, Budget Preparation, and First Time Home Buyer Counseling in Urban communities.
