Start with Strategy

Simplify your real estate goals with a portfolio plan that fits your personal values, resources, and skills.

Real estate is a powerful way to build wealth and achieve financial freedom, but the investment options can be overwhelming. Should you flip houses or buy rental properties? Should you buy locally or invest out-of-state? In the wide world of real estate, it can be difficult to identify which strategy best supports your individual vision. There is no one-size-fits-all portfolio, and ongoing uncertainty can result in analysis paralysis, investing burnout, or losing sight of your values altogether.

By combining foundational knowledge and actionable advice, this book will help condense your real estate dreams into a straightforward blueprint that you can follow for the rest of your investing career.
