Today’s “Master of Ceremonies”
Always an independent spirit, Deborah started her first business in 1990. After owning and partnering in several successful small businesses, she realized that her path to financial freedom was through real estate investing.
In addition to her business degree and graduate certificate in Entrepreneurial Management from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, Deborah expanded her investing education in 2011 with a series of intensive workshops with Robert Kiyosaki, The Rich Dad Advisors and The Real Estate Radio Guys.
It felt like a natural transition to her, shifting gears from her 20-year design firm to her booming rehabbing business in Southern California. With her first house flip netting near $100,000 in profits, her business took off. Her strategy of flipping houses in California for capital and buying and holding for cash flow in other markets for long term wealth has proven to be a success.
Deborah has a flair for fixing and flipping properties, from purchase, rehabbing, marketing and sale processes to tools and techniques for locating properties, analyzing market values, timely decision making to capitalize on opportunities, crafting offers, negotiating, effective due diligence, budgeting, assembling teams, hiring contractors, staging and marketing the sale for profit.
With an unsurpassed expertise in renovation and team management, Deborah began purchasing foreclosures in the Memphis area. After only 3 years, she now controls over $1.5 million in real estate. She is currently focusing her energy on partnering with investors seeking financial freedom through the acquisition of single-family and multi-family assets.
She is also the founder of the Women’s Real Estate Network (WREN), a community where women in real estate excel and empower each other. We share experiences, resources and tools to help one another grow both personally and professionally. Currently with Chapters in LA, Seattle, OC, Phoenix and San Diego. More to open this year in Atlanta, Dallas and Washington DC.
