Sean Conlon talks The Deed: Chicago
What gave you the idea for the show?
“CNBC and a longtime friend of mine, Bob Teitel – a renowned movie director – came to me with the idea of the show years ago. At the time, we were going through the 2008 crisis so I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Ultimately, the timing lined up and we did it.”
Do you feel like you profit on all properties or at least most of the time?
“Look, you don’t always win, but if your wins outnumber your losses, you’re winning. On the show, I invest my own money with a very keen eye to making sure we don’t lose money and that my partners on the show get out of bad deals unscathed.”
Do you plan to do another season?
“No idea right now. I have a very serious day job at Conlon & Co. Real Estate Merchant Bank. We advise and identify special situations across the globe – the average deal being around $100M.”
You have worked hard for where you are at. What advice can you give to people to help them succeed?
“Dream big, work hard, and never EVER give up.”
Seann is staying busy
What else are you doing now?
“Managing Conlon & Co. as well as working with Renovo Financial by providing hundreds of home-flip loans every year. Earlier in the year, I acquired a substantial ownership in a major Wall Street hedge fund, run by the wickedly smart and incredibly wise gentleman, Jim Chanos. He teaches classes at Yale on business fraud – like a real life bond detective.”
As of right now, there is no news about another season of The Deed: Chicago. Fans would love to see more of it.
