About Us


My name is Matt Theriault. I’m the guy behind Epic Real Estate and "Your First Deal."

I am a fifth-generation California native and Desert Storm Veteran (USMC). I've worked as a full-time real estate professional since 2003. After building a small real estate empire hardly using one dime of my own money or one point of my own credit (mostly because I was lacking in both), I have discovered that I have a knack for simplifying the complicated, implementing systems, and producing desirable results for myself and others.

I’m really just an ordinary guy who once had a goal to be successful in real estate investing and become a master of the “multiple streams of passive income” concept. As an experienced and accomplished professional, I felt writing and teaching was the next logical step in my career. Also, because of the issues surrounding our economy today, I am especially interested in informing the public of what multiple streams of income, cash flow and real estate investing can do for them.

I am grateful for my friends, associates, mentors, and community for how they’ve empowered me to pursue and achieve so many of my dreams. Epic Real Estate is simply an outlet for me to share what I’ve learned and give back.

The best part about what I now do is receiving all of the great responses from people like you. All of the gratitude and praise for my hard work drives me to work even harder on this website — to continue updating its information — providing the world with the most practical and useful real estate investing information and services possible.

There’s nothing more rewarding than when I hear someone closed a deal and improved their life because of something they learned from me — particularly when it's their first deal ever!

Your partner in prosperity,
