construction flips rentals Feb 19, 2021

It is never too late to start investing in real estate. The lack of experience or knowledge is not an excuse. On today’s episode, we talk with Jacqueline Marshall, DIY flipper and buys and hold investor, about her transition from being a dental hygienist to real estate full time.

Jacqueline accidentally became a landlord when she couldn’t sell her home and decided to rent it out instead. What seemed to be a set back then, turned into being what propelled her into real estate investing. We discuss with Jacqueline how she strategically made the transition into real estate full time, how her investing niche fits perfectly with her long-term goals, the power of DIY renovations, and why you should always focus on the solution and not the problem. Jacqueline also shares a great tip for finding reliable sub-contractors.

Jacqueline Marshall owns 6 single family dwellings and has renovated and flipped 8 houses. She personally manages and runs her rental portfolio, and everything involved with the flips. Jacqueline is a former dental hygienist and once owned a cafe. Construction and woodworking run on both sides of my family so it's in her blood.

On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Jacqueline including:

  • How to invest in your own way on your own pace
  • How to transition from a traditional career to real estate full-time
  • Ways to find and vet sub-contractors
  • Tips for estimating rehab costs
