Ramon Tookes inked his first real estate deal as a freshman at Georgia State University where he earned his BS in Criminal Justice. Tookes financed his entire college career, which includes a Juris Doctorate (JD) from Emory Law School, with the proceeds from his real estate investments. This visionary started out wanting to become the next Johnnie Cochran, but his passion for real estate was undeniable and continues to grow and intensify daily.
Ramon is a seasoned Real Estate Investor with over 24 years of industry experience. He has mastered flipping houses, wholesaling, buy and holds, residential, commercial, developing, project managing, and new construction. He has been involved in over 1,000 projects over his robust career.
To satisfy his appetite and passion for teaching and philanthropy he introduced his 2-day signature event, Flipology 101: The Bootcamp, as a medium by empowering others to utilize real estate as a viable wealth building vehicle. Flipology is defined just as it sounds “The science of flipping houses”. Due to the success an interest in Flipology 101, other courses have been offered as well that focus on wholesaling, commercial wholesaling, buy & holds and passive income. "Flipology 101: The Book" is the title of the book that Ramon authored in 2015 to pair with his classroom experience. It is a real life instructional and semi-autobiographical journal of his experience of using the Flipology 101 formula. He has also published articles for local and national trade magazines/publications. In 2017, he added one more medium to his educational and informational platform: radio!
He launched a weekly radio show, Flipology Radio: Late Night Real Estate Talk Show, where he brings on featured guests to talk about different aspects of his favorite topic!

South Atlanta REIA, Realty 4-1-1, Think Realty, The Collaboration Tour, Ted Talks Buckhead, and more!
Because Ramon knows and understands that real estate investing is just one piece to the puzzle of living a complete and wealthy life, he and his team host an annual, one-day, life changing event held every January, called "Wealth Building" that encourages attendees to “Inspire wealthy thoughts! Learn wealthy tactics!
Perform wealthy actions! And live a wealthy life!” For his birthday in June 2018, he launched a new website, www.UniversityofWealthBuilding.com which is a storehouse of training modules, resources, and more for living a wealthy life!
