And to do so, we’ve brought in an expert.

Her name is Anne Curry, and she is an expert in real estate investing, selling, developing, and remodeling with over 25 years of experience in the industry. 

By starting her professional career making $5 an hour as a preschool teacher with greater dreams to support her family, Anne has since then scaled her real estate portfolio, currently owning over 300 units and 12 apartment buildings. In addition, Anne has also developed various housing communities around Pierce County. 

Anne is passionate about supporting and guiding her clients as they purchase and sell and personally contributing to the community through giving them the tips and tools needed to create passive income and generational wealth through investing in real estate.
