“Our business is dramatically helped and strengthened by all of these veterans.”
After John Warren returned from duty in Iraq, he moved into the home buying business – or, precisely, foreclosures.
He raised $1 million, drove to the Fulton County Courthouse steps in 2009 and found a mob scene. He didn’t win one auction. A well-trained Marine, he spotted a hole in the operation: no one was lending to these investors. So he launched Lima One Capital, named after his Ramadi battalion call.
Today, he employs five veterans in three states and is expanding to eight others – “all because I went to the courthouse steps with one idea and came back with another.”
