Greg Clark is a Bay Area real estate investor. Greg moved to California in 1995 to attend college and play football for Stanford University. After Stanford, he played 5 years for the San Francisco 49ers, before a career-ending injury. While recovering from back surgery he jumped in real estate finance and never looked back. In 2004 he started buying foreclosures through trustee sales. He and his brother Jon Clark have successfully purchased and rehabbed over 400 homes. His greatest accomplishment besides his wife and two kids was surviving the 2007 housing crash.
