What we're about

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


Zara Ryan began investing in real estate in 2015 after quickly selling her family’s home, renting back from the buyers, and eventually facing only 4 weeks to find a new place to live. She has owned 6 rental properties including two Airbnb homes and 4 long term rentals including townhomes, single family homes and condos. She’s recently completed three 1031 exchanges, and creatively financed properties using second home mortgages, commercial loans, live-in house hacking, and even paying cash for a recent condo purchase. Zara homeschools her two kids and enjoys traveling with her family and their mini goldendoodle Penny. They are outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy hiking, skiing, biking, swimming and all kinds of sports.
