Originally born in San Jose, California into an entrepreneurial family, Jarrett Powell Bey became enthralled with real estate when his family embarked on a twenty year renovation project on his childhood home. Throughout this property's edification, he was introduced to every phase of the building process and nearly every real estate affiliated industry. By age 15, Jarrett was actively assisting and shadowing engineers, architects, contractors, and real estate brokers to entrench himself in the real estate industry and better understand his potential career trajectory. His original major in college was actually architectural engineering, influenced by these early experiences. He'd eventually begin focusing heavily on community development, real estate finance, and other entrepreneurial ventures. 

When Jarrett Powell Bey arrived to Sacramento for college, he diligently studied commercial real estate and real estate finance. He also began analyzing real estate deals to improve his effectiveness in locating profitable deals, and to develop a deeper understanding of the local and surrounding markets. During his studies at California State University, Sacramento, Jarrett became the founding Treasurer of the MLK Business Resource Group, a student-led organization that brought business and internship opportunities to its members on campus. He also received the CSU Real Estate Scholarship & Internship Grant (RESIG), and a scholarship from Lambda Alpha International (LAI). He went on to receive his bachelors degree in finance with an emphasis in real estate, adding to his overall business savvy and investing knowledge. Knowledge that he's expanded with continuous research, ongoing networking and team building, mentorships, and hands-on industry experience. 

 

Noticing that there weren't many programs or investment groups catering to first-time or smaller investors, Jarrett embarked on a journey to find a solution. In 2017, while in school, Jarrett created The American Purchase LLC. to provide a catalyst for smaller local investors to pool their resources and invest in larger multifamily and commercial deals while simultaneously educating them so they can scale their investments into larger acquisitions. He has brought his life experience, entrepreneurialism, and professionalism to every aspect of the business. The business has since scaled and many of its initial investors have continued to invest and profit with The American Purchase.
