I'm Liz. I was born and raised in a middle-class family in New Jersey where my home was filled with love but going out to dinner was a big deal.
From an early age, I have always wanted to serve others and even went to a graduate school program to become a social worker.
While studying to become a social worker, my brother in law who was the only entrepreneur I had ever met, handed me Rich Dad Poor Dad. This changed the trajectory of my life forever.
Over the next couple of years, I started learning as much as I could. After a year of taking courses and hundreds of attempts to get an offer accepted, my boyfriend at the time (now husband) purchased our first investment property a duplex with none of our own money since we did not even have the money.
I started in my 20s not knowing anything about investing, business, and no money to invest. Now, 16 years later, our team owns and manages millions of dollars of real estate. What most people don't know is that this evolution came with a lot of lows, loss, heartache, and challenges.
As someone who was not handed anything I have today, I have learned a ton of lessons from not giving up to managing the balancing act of life as a woman. I am constantly working at balancing all the priorities of my life from being a mom of young children to a wife & biz partner with my husband to taking care of myself.
It has not been easy so that is why we created our InvestHER community.
I'm Andresa. I was born and raised in Brazil and like the majority of the people I knew...the goal was to have good grades and get a great job.
I thought that was the path I wanted to follow. So I graduated from college, jumped into an MBA, and then moved to the US on my own and completed a second Master's degree. I worked very hard to pay for everything myself and graduate without debt.
One of the jobs I took was a door to door sales position. This was one of the hardest and most valuable jobs I've done. My manager introduced me to Rich Dad Poor Dad and things changed...my mindset changed.
I started investing in RE, purchased a house, got married, had a child, crew the business, and while my company was performing at its best...I headed to a divorce.
As a single mom and someone who had to rebuild everything from scratch, I've learned a few lessons.
I've learned how to do full gut jobs, build new construction, manage multiple projects at the same time, and oversee $100k to $1million construction budgets. But, one of the most important ones is that I don't need to figure out everything on my own.
That's why we have built The Real Estate InvestHER community for women like Liz and me. We offer a safe place where you can get the support you need to take your business to the next level and live life on your own terms.
