July 16, 2012 in Investing In Real Estate
I was recently asked by James Vermillion lll to participate in another one of his “3 on 3” interviews for BiggerPockets. There were also 2 other successful women real estate investors that were included; McKellar Newsome from Tennessee and Karen Margrave from Orange, CA. These two ladies have different investing strategies, and it was interesting to hear what each of them had to say.
Our interviewer James Vermillion, is a fellow “Kentuckian” and is a member of the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps. He is currently stationed at Barksdale Air Force base in LA, but he continues to invest in real estate in Central Kentucky. James is also a regular contributor to BiggerPockets. You can find his website here at: http://www.kandvinvesting.com, especially if you have a house to sell in his area.
James asked each of us to respond to three questions which were:
- How and when did you first get involved in real estate investing and what has been your favorite investment strategy?
- As a woman have there been any obstacles that you have had to face that men typically do not? Have there been any advantages?
- What is the biggest piece of advice you would give to a woman looking to get started in real estate investing?
See how these three women with very different businesses in different parts of the country have found success with real estate.
