Tiffani Von Alvensleben recalls that this early stage in her career was challenging. With only a high school education to start, she realized early on that she would have to create her own goals and opportunities in order to succeed. She had never been taught how to establish personal goals for herself, recalls Tiffani Von Alvensleben, but obtaining the discipline required of a self-employed professional eventually produced the results she desired.
In 1992, with her husband Rich she co-founded World Concepts LLC, a sales and marketing company based in Morgan Hill where she gained extensive sales and marketing experience over her 13-year tenure.

The company’s performance can be credited to Rich and Tiffani Von Alvensleben and partner Kale Flagg’s proven instincts and experience in acquiring distressed properties and REO’s from lending institutions at highly discounted prices.
Tiffani Von has a deep knowledge of her area and has been able to leverage that expertise into sound business decisions for both Von Vesting and their clients.
