Meet The Mates


John Carney

Work Hard. Play Hard. Profit Hard.

John Carney is an adventure seeker, podcast host, keynote speaker, and author of Real Estate is a Team Sport: The 9 Players You Need to Profit


He grew up in a family of real estate developers and investors who bootstrapped their way to success. John’s number one value is hard work and he believes investors who build relationships with their teams generate the best results. Originally from Cleveland (we Aussies won’t hold this against him), John moved to Melbourne, Australia, with his Australian wife in 2009, where he advised Australian property investors to accelerate their wealth through U.S. real estate investments.


In 2016 John moved back to his hometown of Cleveland, OH, to work on multifamily development and source real estate investments for qualified investors. John started his own business, American Property Source, in 2010.

John and his wife, Leah, are active, athletic parents who enjoy introducing their children, Xavier and Molly, to the outdoors, action sports, and travel.


John’s an avid CrossFitter, competes in Spartan Races, and loves to ski and surf. (So basically, he’s an all-around badass. He lived in Australia, and married an Aussie, so we’ve dubbed him an honorary Australian.) He loves taking on the challenge of helping others succeed.
