Paul Mielke is the founder of Monroe Park Homes in Birmingham, AL.  A self-taught, serial entrepreneur, Mielke moved to Birmingham a few years ago and as his career evolved he found himself finding homes, designing them, managing the contractors, and selling the property for his investors. He is in homes every day working on bringing his vision to life and is constantly pushing the limits of style. With 20+ homes being flipped at once there is ALWAYS something to do and Mielke is the type of guy who rolls up his sleeves to get it done no matter what the situation. His skillset ranges from drywall, tile and painting all the way to picking and installing furniture and assuring every house feels like home. In 2021 his and Cody Cummings' company, the Apollo Group, sold 240 homes, flipped over 30 homes, wholesale over 40 homes, and landed a national cable tv show, A&E's Flipping Down South. Paul was also an early adopter of the PLACE Inc platform which has since become the fastest growing real estate start up in history and has another cable tv show in the home space coming in spring of 2023.
