My husband David and I are real estate investors. We learned the business under the tutelage of Dennis Henson, President of Vanguard Marketing and Investments. Dennis’ 41+ years of real estate investing experience has been invaluable in giving me both the knowledge and skills to be a successful investor but, more importantly, embracing an investor’s mindset.
My goal is to be part of the investor’s team, supporting them in achieving their real estate investment goals. As the majority of Realtors® are retail-oriented, they clearly don’t understand the investor’s need to acquire a property at a profitable price. I experienced this first hand when a Realtor®’s response to our offer – 70% of the after-repair value minus expenses – was “that seems pretty low.” YES! It was low in order for us to make a profit.
That conversation motivated me to seek my real estate license, so as to avoid explaining to Realtors® why the offer amount is what it is.I earned my Realtor® license in June 2019 and am a part of Vance Wampler’s Real Estate Reformation brokerage in Arlington.
