Joseph Michael Lehman

Founder, Lehman Property

Early Life

Joseph Michael Lehman was born in the Bronx, raised in New York. Growing up in a disadvantaged home, Joseph worked odd jobs in a number of different industries including restaurants and construction sites before entering into the entrepreneurial realm.

During the 1990’s, Joseph realized that there was a need for custom printed products for other businesses. Joseph opened up Lehman Advertising, an advertising specialties business selling products to businesses large and small.

After selling Lehman Advertising, Joseph entered into the liquidation business, forming a new company. In this venture, Joseph would buy liquidated clearance overstock tech items from businesses and sell them at a profit. His second business had the rights to Phillips and Toshiba electronics resale. With his warehouse in Arkansas, he would refurbish these products and sell them across Latin America and other second-tier retailers in the United States.

Entry Into Real Estate

In 2010, Joseph then got his first taste within the real estate business. After the great recession, Joseph took liquid capital from his previous and current ventures and invested in his first low-income home in Liberty City (Florida).

While other real estate investors were focusing on higher income areas, Joseph was more interested in going all-in on this particular low income niche where you could buy cheaper than you can build.

Joseph was a frequent at real estate auctions within his current state. Although he didn’t have the knowledge necessary to make sophisticated estimations on property values, Joseph would observe the investment bankers that would come to these auctions. His theory was that if these individuals were bidding on certain properties, they probably were a good buy.

Leveraging this investment strategy, Joseph was able to acquire 450 properties within 2 years of starting his new real estate venture. Joseph began to make a name for himself within the local areas, networking with other individuals and brokers throughout the state of Florida, eventually getting his general contractors license.

Joseph’s networking efforts eventually opened up doors for major investment opportunities for larger real estate properties such as high end single family homes and condominiums, multi family building complexes, and commercial shopping centers stretching across the state of Florida.
