What we’re about

Welcome to the Edmonton AB InvestHER Chapter! This group has been created to help women real estate investors local to Edmonton, AB meet, connect, and learn together and from one another!

1. Zorya Belanger retired from her professional engineering career to focus full-time on real estate investing. She is now a multifamily syndicator, mentor, and mom of 2 young kids. Zorya co-founded BREI Properties, which buys profit-generating multifamily rental properties in Alberta and Texas. She started buying investment properties in 2013 and now has nearly $10M in Assets Under Management (AUM), and is on track to double that to $20M in 2023. It all started with single-family homes, then small new-build multifamily, and then large value-add multifamily, all the while focusing on her top 3 values: family, health, and freedom.

2. Ilona Carletti bought her first property in 2010, but it was in 2020 that she decided to pursue real estate investing as a lifelong dream to scale her real estate portfolio. In 2022, together with their business partners, she purchased a brand new 8-plex in Edmonton. Then in January 2023, she and her partners closed on their second brand-new 8-plex. Their current portfolio consists of 19 doors. Ilona’s investment ethos is based on three main principles: 1. Return of Capital. 2. Sustainable Real Estate Investment Solutions. 3. Relationship-Centric Approach. Outside of real estate, Ilona works for the provincial public service and is a mom to two young boys.
