EP 78: How She Replaced Her 6 Figure Income with Rental Real Estate with Anna Kelley  

Investing in real estate is not always a 6 figure income, “roses and sunshine.” There can be tons of twists and turns that occur unexpectedly while real estate investing. We are excited to sit down with Anna Kelley, who is referred to as the REI Mom on this week’s episode! This mom of four has had to overcome tons of challenges and recently retired from her corporate job to become a full-time real estate investor. We cover so much with this multifamily investor, from how to be “resilient,” how to grow a multifamily portfolio with owner financing, how to negotiate win-win outcomes with landlords, and why it’s actually an advantage to be a woman in this business.

Anna Kelley is the founding member of Zenith Capital Group and ReiMom, LLC. As a top-ranked former Financial Relationship Manager for a large private bank, and having worked in the financial sector for 20 years, Anna has a keen understanding of various financial tools available to grow and preserve wealth. Believing real estate to be one of the most powerful tools for creating stable cash flow, asset preservation, & equity growth (the trifecta of investments), Anna began investing in real estate 20 years ago.

Anna has purchased, renovated, sold, and rented millions of dollars in real estate across numerous asset classes while working full time and raising 4 children. Anna currently owns and manages a rental portfolio valued at over $12.5 Million. Anna actively seeks out multifamily investment opportunities for her partners and investors. She is also a frequent guest on real estate investing podcasts and a speaker for multiple REI groups. Anna has coached numerous new investors through the purchase of their first rental properties and flip projects and enjoys helping others to overcome their fears, increase their knowledge, and minimize their risks in real estate. Finally, she is an Amazon #1 Best Selling Author & runs a meetup group for women in real estate in Central PA: REI Like A Girl! She enjoys singing, good food from other countries, and trips to the beach!

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

  • How to truly be “resilient” when faced with big challenges
  • Growing a multifamily property
  • How to be successful using “owner financing” as a strategy
  • How to negotiate best with the retiring landlords
  • Why it’s an advantage to be a women
  • And how to be kind to yourself as you “balance” life
