Our History

Chris Shepard is the Founder, President, and CEO of Nationwide Capital Group, Inc. Chris began acquiring properties shortly after graduating from California State University, Fullerton in 1988. After graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Finance and an emphasis in Real Estate, he first began working for a real-estate developer in Orange County, California, as a Land Acquisition Specialist. Shortly thereafter, Chris began brokering commercial real estate on properties in excess of $1,000,000 each. He later began a successful mortgage company in Newport Beach by the name of First Trust Mortgage. 

In 1994, Chris began purchasing properties at the courthouse steps via Trustee Sales on homes that were going into foreclosure. Since then, he has purchased, remodeled, and sold over 1,000 properties in Southern California. Nationwide Capital Group, Inc. was later incorporated in 2004, which not only acquired properties in Southern California, but also purchased non-performing mortgages nationwide.

Our current focus for 2017 is the acquisition of industrial properties throughout Southern California.
