This is a very interactive Meet up so come prepared to share and ask all those questions that can no longer wait for an answer!!!
The weekly show details the journey of some of the most amazing women real estate investors around the world, who open up their lives and share practical and strategic tools for growing a rental portfolio, flipping houses and the mindset that allows them to run a successful investing business while taking care of their families and most importantly taking care of themselves.
Thank you to everyone who came out to our first InvestHER subgroup meeting! Overwhelmingly the the most popular topic that everyone wants to hear about is wholesaling. Beka Shea was featured on episode 43 of the Real Estate Investher Podcast Show, and is the quintessential example of how you can make a very successful business out of wholesaling! Beka also has experience with flips, and rentals too! Here is a little bit more about Beka:
Beka is the youngest of 4 daughters and grew up in rural Pennsylvania.
Beka went to WPI for mechanical engineering on an ROTC scholarship, where she met her husband and some of her amazing best friends. When I graduated she became a US Naval Officer. Her original dream was to be a pilot, but unfortunately her eyes disagreed; instead she served on an Aircraft Carrier.
After about 4 years in the Navy, she got a job as an engineer working in the energy arena, going into VA Hospitals and military bases and finding ways to reduce their energy consumption by 20-40%.
When her 3rd daughter was born, she decided to spend less time traveling and more time at home. Her and her husband bought our first rehab, which was a hoarder house, and she was hooked. In her first year they flipped 3 houses, doubling to 6 houses in their second year. In year three they moved to doing one a month, and this year they are on track to do 10+ flips and 50+ wholesales, as well as building their rental portfolio.
