Robert Campbell has been eating, sleeping, living and breathing real estate from the time he learned how to walk.
The son of a successful San Diego home builder, he spent many hours as a youngster tagging along with his dad to the lumberyard, and later worked on his father’s construction sites to help pay his way through college.
But Robert quickly learned that there was far more to real estate than dirt, concrete, lumber and building materials. Early on, he learned that real estate markets are a lot like roller-coaster rides where spectacular
climbs are frequently followed by spectacular falls.
Robert graduated from UCLA and started investing in real estate at age 24, borrowing $14,000 from his parents for the down payment on a 6-unit apartment house in San Diego. After doing some cosmetic repairs and raising the rents, he sold the property for an $11,000 profit one year later. He was hooked for life.

A seasoned veteran of both good and bad real estate cycles, Robert Campbell has experienced many more successes than losses. Ironically, it was his biggest real estate “mistake” that inspired him to write this book.
Because he believes that “avoiding disaster” is one of the true secrets for achieving lasting, long-term prosperity -- and because of his hard-won experiences, market observations, education, and analytical expertise -- Robert has created The Campbell Method for tracking trends to buy and sell. This revolutionary approach to timing the real estate market not only provides you with the tools to survive the real estate roller-coaster ride, but it also presents a clearly defined method for achieving maximum profit.
With respect to investing in the markets –
which includes real estate – Robert believes that a
“data-driven trend following system” is the best
solution for making superior investment decisions.
You should play the real estate game the
same way that a highly skilled card-counter plays
the game of Blackjack: make sure the odds are with
you, and not against you. In other words, be the casino - not the gambler.
Mr. Campbell earned a BA in Economics from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1969 and an M.B.A. in Real Estate Finance from San Diego State University in 1974.
Robert loves to stay active - both physically and mentally.
His hobbies include:
(1) working out six days a week to stay as strong, lean, and physically fit as possible
(2) using the timing system he developed, which he calls "Hit The Burners and Go,"
to trade the stock market for short-term profits.
