  • Investing with your spouse is not always the easiest, but Grace Yarber has figured this out and taken it one step further! A few years ago, after making the bold move to quit her job, she and her husband designed the “life” they wanted FIRST and then aligned their business around it. On today’s episode, we cover a ton with Grace, including two key strategies to use to avoid frustration when investing with your spouse, the #1 phrase to say to male contractors when you are NOT perceived as the decision-maker, and why cold showers are a MUST!

    Grace Yarber is the co-CEO of Fixated Real Estate LLC, a high volume real estate investment company based out of the Seattle area that specializes in "Fix and Flip" single-family homes and in the past few years began focusing heavily on BRRRR method. By focusing on building strong, scalable and duplicable systems, the Fixated team has been able to successfully “flip” over 40 million dollars in single-family homes from Seattle, WA to Portland, OR. In December 2016, Grace along with her husband Tarl and their team launched an events business as well. Fixated ON Real Estate monthly meetups now bring over 175+ investors each month and also are hosting the 3rd largest real estate Expo in the Pacific NW in Seattle. Last year’s event called PNW Real Estate Expo 2019 had over 800 attendees and 75 exhibitors. Real Estate has been an income-generating vehicle for Grace and her team to allow them to live the life of their dreams and give back to the community.

    On today’s episode, we discuss a lot with Grace, including:

    Creating the life you want FIRST, then fitting your business around IT
    The top #2 keys to investing with your spouse
    How they transitioned to a different (yet related) business
    The power of giving back
    The key to putting “ego” aside
    The #1 phrase to say to male contractors when you are not perceived as the decision-maker
    Why cold showers are a MUST

  • Investing in real estate is not always a 6 figure income, “roses and sunshine.” There can be tons of twists and turns that occur unexpectedly while real estate investing. We are excited to sit down with Anna Kelley, who is referred to as the REI Mom on this week’s episode! This mom of four has had to overcome tons of challenges and recently retired from her corporate job to become a full-time real estate investor.  We cover so much with this multifamily investor, from how to be “resilient,” how to grow a multifamily portfolio with owner financing, how to negotiate win-win outcomes with landlords, and why it’s actually an advantage to be a woman in this business.

    Anna Kelley is the founding member of Zenith Capital Group and ReiMom, LLC. As a top-ranked former Financial Relationship Manager for a large private bank, and having worked in the financial sector for 20 years, Anna has a keen understanding of various financial tools available to grow and preserve wealth. Believing real estate to be one of the most powerful tools for creating stable cash flow, asset preservation, & equity growth (the trifecta of investments), Anna began investing in real estate 20 years ago.

    Anna has purchased, renovated, sold, and rented millions of dollars in real estate across numerous asset classes while working full time and raising 4 children. Anna currently owns and manages a rental portfolio valued at over $12.5 Million. Anna actively seeks out multifamily investment opportunities for her partners and investors. She is also a frequent guest on real estate investing podcasts and a speaker for multiple REI groups. Anna has coached numerous new investors through the purchase of their first rental properties and flip projects and enjoys helping others to overcome their fears, increase their knowledge, and minimize their risks in real estate. Finally, she is an Amazon #1 Best Selling Author & runs a meetup group for women in real estate in Central PA: REI Like A Girl! She enjoys singing, good food from other countries, and trips to the beach!

    On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Anna, including:

    How to truly be “resilient” when faced with big challenges
    Growing a multifamily property
    How to be successful using “owner financing” as a strategy
    How to negotiate best with the retiring landlords
    Why it’s an advantage to be a women
    And how to be kind to yourself as you “balance” life

  • While “multifamily” investing is still very hot, mobile home parks can be just as lucrative as an investment. Today we chat with a former accountant, Alina Trigub to discuss why she decided to diversify beyond Wall Street into real estate. We cover so much with Alina, including advantages of passively investing, best educational resources for learning syndications, the “in’s and out’s” of mobile home park investments, and a simple 4 step process to work through difficult emotions.

    Alina is the founder and the Managing Partner of SAMO Financial. It’s a boutique private equity firm specializing in helping a select group of people passively invest in the commercial real estate. She welcomes warm introductions of accredited investors that are looking (1) for help to preserve their wealth, (2) to find ways to save on taxes, and (3) make an additional passive stream of income. Her business motto has been articulated well by Warren Buffett's indicating that,

    "Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago".

    She is the founder of two Meetup groups named, “The Power of Passive Investing through Real Estate”, which gather in NY and NJ.  In addition, Alina offers educational webinars in collaboration with various administrators of self-directed IRA companies.  Topics revolve around aspects of getting started investing in syndications by using funds in solo 401k or self-directed retirement plans.

    Alina has helped her clients to acquire and invest in over 1200 apartment doors, over 10MM Fund focused on self-storage, and over 5MM Fund focused on mobile home parks and storage.

    On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Alina, including:

    How to work through difficult emotions
    The difference between passive and active investors
    The power of syndications
    Why vetting the syndicator is just as important as vetting the deal
    How to properly vet a syndicator
    The “ins and outs” of mobile home park investing
    Biggest mistakes investors can make when evaluating mobile home park investments

  • Is it possible that an investor’s first real estate syndication would be a foreclosed winery – a winery that produced the same Champaign that JFK used at his inaugural ball in 1961?  The answer is YES and on today’s episode with Melanie McCallen, we chat about her path to buying a foreclosed winery and resort in New Jersey called Renault Winery Resort & Golf.  We cover a lot with this mom of 9 from why she loves hospitality, why syndications are so powerful, the #1 strategy to building relationships with investors, failing forward and how her skills as a mom prepared her for this life-changing venture.

    Melanie McCallen is a partner in both Vivamée Hospitality and Accountable Equity, where she manages various designers and architects, as well as serves investors directly. She and her husband Josh are passionate about taking on hospitality projects together. Being the oldest of 10 and now a mother of 9, Melanie believes her family is the reason genuine hospitality comes naturally to her. “I think when we explain that to investors, it touches them as well. Your passion comes through when it’s authentic.” Before starting a family, Melanie earned her Bachelors in Education from the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. She has since had opportunities to live in various cities around the globe, including Austria, where her first child went to kindergarten.

    On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Melanie, including:

    Why her and husband love hospitality
    Foreclosed resort real estate
    #1 Strategy to build relationships with prospective investors
    How she transferred her skills as a “stay at home” mom to buying this resort
    Simply way to motivate children into action
    Failing forward and importance of investing in your marriage

  • Let’s face it. The construction world is still male-dominated. In order to be successful in flipping and renovating homes as a woman, you need to have grace but also have the ability to be the hammer as well. On today’s episode, we chat with Angela Florie from Long Island, New York. She talks about her journey from moving from Colombia to NYC to pursue her dreams in design. After years in advertising, she realized something was missing and after soul searching, she realized real estate is where she wanted to be.  We discuss money saving lessons she wished she knew on her first fix and flip project, why “numbers are queen,” why she loves to find properties with problems, and how she navigates a male dominated world with the use of a “velvet hammer.”

    Angela Florie is originally from Bogota, Colombia. She moved to NYC to pursue her Masters at Parsons School of Design (the best design school in the world!). Over the next 10 years, she got promoted a few times, changed agencies a couple of times and traveled the country meeting clients, but in the back of her head she knew something was missing. After some soul searching, she decided to launch her own company in June of 2015 focused on renovating and flipping homes in one of the most expensive markets in the country - New York. Her company, Grand Central Real Estate, LLC has grown since 2015 and not only renovates their own projects, but is also a licensed General Contractor helping homeowners renovate their homes.

    On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Angela, including:

    Value of coaching
    Key lessons from 1st Flip and why “Numbers are Queen”
    What she wished she had done on her first flip
    Most important way to STAY ahead of schedule
    Finding properties who have problems
    How she navigated the construction world as a “velvet hammer”
    Most important way to THRIVE when working together with your spouse

  • It can be very overwhelming to begin investing in real estate when working a full-time job and juggling so many responsibilities. On today’s episode, we chat with Kim Gillock a buy and hold investor from Denver, CO.  She got her start in “house hacking” and has never looked back. We chat about the importance of knowing your “target” customer, why it is valuable to have a full-time job, the importance of your “why,” how to successfully transition to a new area of investing, and what you should consider when scaling to multifamily.

    Kim Gillock is a buy-and-hold real estate investor residing in Denver, CO.  Her full-time career is as an Emergency Dept PA (Physician Assistant) since 2008.  A few years after buying her primary residence and seeing the benefit of "house hacking," she became curious about real estate as a potential investment vehicle and tried her hand at buy & hold investing (2013).  She currently holds and actively manages 3 LTR's and one medium-term rental, still "house hacks" at home and also manages her families vacation rental in Colorado and works her full-time job (every true millennial has to have a side hustle, right?).  Despite all the juggling, she just really finds RE investing SO. Fun.

    In her free time, she loves playing tennis, skiing, traveling and being with friends and family (preferably while doing one of the aforementioned and/or with wine).  She resides in Denver, CO.

    On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Kim, including:

    House hacking with furnished month to month
    Why knowing your target “customer” is critical
    The value and benefits of having a full-time job
    The importance of the “why” behind real estate investing
    How to powerfully transition to a new area of real estate investing
    Scaling to multifamily and what you should be considering

  • The real estate investing market remains HOT across many markets in the USA. As a result, a common mistake made by real estate investors in today’s market is that they are overpaying for deals. This can hurt your profitability and bottom line - big time. We are excited to sit down and talk to Diana George who runs a women-owned and operated private equity firm in CA. We talk with Diana about how she grew her brokerage early on (and later sold it), how she uses data to avoid overpaying for deals, how to not over or under improve a rehab project and the importance of taking your power back as a woman.

She then sold her brokerage to Century 21 to focus on growing Artemis Investments. She continues to present at speaking engagements all over the Bay Area advising new and seasoned investors on how to be profitable and hedge against a downward market. Diana has been featured and/or quoted in WSJ, BBC, Forbes, Associated Press and several other national publications in regards to the real estate market, investments and economy.
