What we're about

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

We’re a group of dedicated women devoted to the success of every woman in the Real Estate Investment arena. We offer some of the most successful and seasoned educational speakers in the Chicagoland area to provide each member with the insight and direction to knock it out of the park in real estate investing.

We follow through by applying Ben Franklin's classic 13 virtues to spark discussion about members' real estate goals and aspirations - who they want to be and what they want to contribute to the world. Over the course of 13 months, each discussion will focus on a different virtue and how it relates to each of our own Real Estate Investment journeys.

Lender Panel Q&A

Join us for our next meetup on Tuesday February 7th at Every Door Real Estate in Seattle.

We will have a panel of amazing women lenders with diverse backgrounds. Combined they are a powerhouse of knowledge for all things RE lending that you will not want to miss out on. So make sure to bring your questions with you!

Here's a little about each of our guest speakers:

Beth Johnson, along with her husband, Matt Flynn, own and operate Flynn Family Lending, a boutique private lending business based in Renton, WA. A self-described private money matchmaker, Beth prides herself in offering full concierge services for trust deed investors seeking passive income opportunities while providing highly creative and innovative lending products to active real estate investors across the state. Beth published her first book, Lend to Live: Earn Hassle-Free Passive Income in Real Estate with Private Money Lending, through BiggerPockets Publishing in July 2022.

She is currently a member of the Education Committee for the American Association of Private Lenders (AAPL) and former Board of Directors for the Rental Housing Association of Washington. Beth began her own investing career in the early 2000s with flips, wholesaling, and eventually delving into private lending. She has since grown her own portfolio of small multi-family properties. In her spare time, you can find Beth enjoying time with her blended family of five, running, traveling and playing poker.
