Timothy Gray has been part of the auction industry since he was 15 years old. After a brief career in the entertainment industry and near fatal car accident, he dedicated his life to buying tax lien certificates, starting only with vacant lots, and soon becoming one of the largest buyers in the Chicago area.
His compassion for those on the verge of eviction is changing the industry, by offering homeowners a motivational and hopeful approach to redeeming their taxes. For those who have faced eviction when no redemption has been made, he has documented every moment, giving readers a front row seat into a shocking underground reality. While most books on the subject of tax lien investing focus only on profits that can theoretically be made, Gray takes readers on a wild ride presenting the good, bad, and unbelievable events that have unfolded during his storied career. With tales involving celebrities, drug addicts, hoarders, and sovereign citizens—this is a story filled with valuable lessons and the dark and sometimes comical life of those who faced foreclosure of their homes. One part instruction, one part sociology, and a dash of bizarre entertainment, this book is a cocktail of reality that might be too inconceivable to believe—if not for the photos to evidence the amazing and heartwarming stories.
