Matthew McLean started his professional career as an athletic trainer taking care of people such as Peyton Manning at the University of Tennessee. His scholarship earned him national awards as a student athletic trainer and he enjoyed the fruits of being part of the 1998 National Football Championship staff. His love for real estate began seven years ago in a hot market in Asheville, NC when he wholesaled a house and made $13,000 in a week. He hasn’t looked back.

He and his father, Rich McLean, have also co-authored an Amazon bestselling book with Ron LeGrand called The New Masters of Real Estate. Matt’s goal is to continue demonstrating excellence in his work by being a successful investor and helping to heal some of what is broken in his community. He is a committed husband to Taryn and dad of three beautiful children Will, Kate and Eli Ruth. He enjoys fishing, playing in the dirt, movies and sharing a meal with friends.
ABOUT RICHARD MCLEAN:
Growing up in Daytona Beach, Florida immersed Richard McLean in seawater early in life. His passion for sea creatures and for sports came together at Florida State University where he played football, ran track and acquired a Ph. D. in marine biology. A career in marine research and environmental assessment has taken him from the warm seas of the South Pacific to the frozen seas of Antarctica. Having an expertise in shallow water environments resulted in being part of the Cousteau team that filmed “The Incredible March of the Spiny Lobsters” for the Undersea World of Jacque Cousteau television series. In addition, he was the technical advisor for the BBC’s Blue Planet Series, “The Tidal Seas” that showcased some of Dr. McLean’s research. Currently, the building of wetlands has dominated his scientific endeavors. However, developing a real estate expertise with his son Matt has evolved from a hobby to a serious business during the last seven years. Under the teaching of professionals such as Ron LeGrand and his mentoring program, he has put his training to work to learn the science and art of real estate investing in any market in the United States. He has bought and sold properties in three states and is now concentrating on Tennessee. The techniques described in their best-selling book, The New Masters of Real Estate coauthored with Matt and Ron LeGrand, are being successfully used to build a business that is worth writing about. Rich is most alive when he is surrounded by saltwater, fishing and teaching his grandchildren about “the fruits de mer.” Rich has been happily married to Diane for 42 years and has 6 spoiled grandchildren.
