I’m especially honored to receive this recognition of my accomplishments from such a distinguished organization. This honor is a reflection of the achievements made by my team and a testament to my clients’ recognition that education and solid strategies are key to their success.
As a multifamily investing consultant and mentor, I help my clients in all aspects of the investing process—from creating successful real estate investing strategies and business plans to analyzing specific properties, markets and financing to successfully buying and selling multifamily investment properties.
I work individually with clients who want to buy their first multifamily property or apartment building by helping them find, analyze and make offers on specific deals. By having a specific and effective investment plan my clients increase their cash flow and net worth. Read about my Multifamily Real Estate Mentoring and Consultancy Services at this link.
I also offer consultations for real estate investing professionals who want a highly skilled sounding board for their ideas and investment strategies, often challenging underlying assumptions that will likely prove ineffective.

In addition to real estate investing, consulting and speaking I’m a musician, award-winning graphic artist and owner of multiple businesses. I live in Colorado with my husband, Richard, who is an entrepreneur and an attorney.
I fell in love with real estate investing in 2004 when my husband and I realized that we could buy a beautiful 1890 Victorian home then keep our former home as a cash flowing residential rental property. Instead of selling the house, we rented our home to a group of college girls and loved the experience. The best part is that we actually lowered our monthly expenses significantly (we even moved our two offices home saving thousands a year!). And so began my real estate investing journey, including working with extraordinary real estate business mentors.
After turning our personal residence into a rental property I had the real estate investing bug. I have purchased single-family properties and multifamily properties across the country—some of the properties I renovated and flipped and some are holds (income rental properties). Just before writing my book Invest In Apartment Buildings: Profit Without The Pitfalls, I completely renovated and repositioned a brick three-story 29-unit apartment building. I sold that property at the end of 2011. During the past decade I’ve partnered in other deals and have been active in a residential development just north of Puerto Vallarta Mexico (now stalled and waiting on a return to positive thoughts about the viability of traveling and residing in Mexico—it’s a long story). I’ve consistently doubled my net worth throughout the years.
I’m an active multifamily and single-family real estate investor today.
Investing in residential real estate, including multifamily properties and apartment buildings, has become a 24/7 preoccupation. It’s a marriage of my two passions: mentoring and growing wealth through the acquisition of appreciating assets.
But what stands out is that along the way I’ve put much of my time and energy into teaching others–from beginners to professional real estate investors with millions–how to be wise investors without following what is often the incorrect advice of the “gurus” of the moment. The key to success in real estate investing is to get the best possible education/mentorship without the hype.
Real estate investing isn’t brain surgery, but there are some definite dos and don’ts. This site is dedicated to helping you succeed on your real estate investing journey.
I’ve been a business mentor and coach for the past two decades. Here’s what I believe. An abundance of information does not create results. And often too much information can have a paralyzing effect.
