I'm so glad to be here.   Michael: So for those people that don't know who you are and your background, I'd love if you could give us a little bit of brief history into who Anna Kelly is.   Anna: great, I will try to be really brief, right? I've been investing in real estate for a little over 20 years, I think I bought my first property in 1999. And before that I had a financial background. So I worked in the financial sector, I was a financial relationship manager for Bank of America and our private banks. So I worked with lots of traditional investments, and really had a 20 year corporate career in the traditional financial sector, working on investments for high net worth individuals.   And one of the things that was interesting, Michael, is that I learned a lot about investments and what to do with it once you became wealthy. But even through all of my years of financial advisory training and college, no one taught me how do you actually create the wealth other than waiting 45 days and 45 years until your retirement accounts are finally enough that you can retire.   And I had a couple of clients who were very wealthy who laughed at the double digit returns that we could offer at our bank at the time, because they made more money in real estate. And I went okay, I've learned nothing about real estate, I need to at least start to learn and see if that's something that I should consider once I have a lot of money.   So I knew a lot about investments thought about real estate. But it wasn't until I had my first baby that really changed my why like, I really want to be home. I have this great six figure career I climbing up the corporate ladder, but I want to be home with my kids. And so I'm going to have to try to figure out how do I replace a six figure income doing something different from home and real estate was the way I did that. And that began a 20 year journey for me and to small multifamily large multifamily, ultimately retiring a multimillionaire through small multifamily real estate, leaving AIG two and a half years ago. And since then, I've been focused on large multifamily syndications.   Michael: Oh my gosh, what the track record you had. That's awesome. So   Anna: It's been a long time.   Michael: I think just a blip on the radar as a blip on the radar when when you were doing your financial advising, did you think that real estate was a realistic vehicle for to get where you want it to go, or you only saw it as kind of the the finish line, that's when you could start?   Anna: The latter, I had no idea how to get started in real estate, I learned not a single thing about it. It was not even an option for growing financial wealth in terms of what we were taught. It was all about stocks, bonds, mutual funds, annuities, really to grow the wealth that you already had. And because we already worked mostly with wealthy people, we really weren't starting from the beginning with a lot of people like, you know, yes, we would, we knew what to tell you. We'd say hey, you know, set aside 10 or 15%, put it in stocks, you know, more aggressive when you're young and match, you know, everything you can for 401k company match and eventually you'll get that million dollar nest egg by the time you're 65 and then you can live on 4% of it like $40,000 a year. And supposedly you'd be really comfortable for the rest of your life. Right?   Michael: Yeah.   Anna: And we thought that was really smart and a good thing. But I figured it would take me that 45 years to develop that million dollar you know, nest egg I never thought wow, if I invest in something else I might be able to create a significant cash flow today that will make growing wealth possible before I'm 65 never even crossed any of the conversations that I had.   Michael: Interesting. It also blows my mind that you could get double digit returns by park your money in a bank.   Anna: Well in in tools and products that we had, sometimes they were you know hedge fund type investments.   Michael: I got you I got no Not a CD?   Anna: No, but CDs paid a lot more back then than they do today. So even then I think our CDs were probably seven or 8%. They were pretty high compared to today.   Michael: That's incredible. That's incredible. Okay, so So now let's fast forward. So you found real estate, you're like, This is what I'm doing. Talk us through that first deal. And then your subsequent How did you get into small multifamily after that first deal?   Anna: Yeah. So it's really interesting, kind of going back to that my, my mind was piqued that I needed to think smarter about money, and that I needed to think about real estate as something to at least explore. And I lived in Houston, Texas at the time, and my rent was really, really expensive. So as I was starting to think about am I making wise financial decisions? I thought it's really dumb that I'm blowing, you know, 1000 $1,200 a month on rent 20 years ago, why don't I buy a condo, maybe I could buy a condo, have my my total expenses be less, and then down the road, when I'm ready to buy a house, I can run out that property. So that's what I did. It wasn't that I thought real estate's gonna grow wealth, I thought real estate as a way to to live below my means a little bit and down the road to give me a little extra cash. So that's the only real thought I had about real estate when I bought that first condo.   And then I thought, you know, real estate is kind of a speculative thing. I got into about 20, 2002 2003. And a lot of people were starting to buy homes and build and kind of rough areas that were re gentrifying, and they were making $100,000 in a year or two after building and I thought, oh, we'll speculate we'll buy a house where there's, you know, it needs to grow. And the neighborhood's not so great, but right across the street, there's lots of expensive homes. And I thought we built it in a year, it would go way up in value, right?   Well, it didn't, didn't work, right. And then I had my baby, and I watched, I was on bed rest for three months, and I watched a lot of HGTV flip this house, it was the first year that they were coming out, like all the shows, okay? It's like, Oh, my goodness, honey, I said to my husband, I got a six figure career, but I work 40 hours, 50 hours a week, I could flip three houses and make that much money, let's flip the house.   So with a three month old baby in tow, we went and got a traditional mortgage on a second house and decided let's flip this house. It has a garage apartment in the back. So we'll get a little rental income while we're flipping it. And that was our next investment before I ever even thought about really making real money with rental real estate.   Michael: Okay, and how did that flip go?   Anna: It didn't go well. We lost money. We made a lot of mistakes. It's not as easy as it looks on TV, right?   Michael: Never is it didn't take only an hour to do?   Anna: No, no, we made so many mistakes, we could we could have a whole episode just on the mistakes that we made, right. But essentially, we bought in the wrong place at the wrong time didn't know what we were doing. Way over budget way over time. It took us a year to finish it and sell it. And we lost total about $10,000 with holding costs and everything, which honestly for our first flip wasn't terrible. But my husband during that time lost a job. So we had two mortgages, a six figure school loan, a new baby and one job and he said we're never doing that again.   So put real estate aside. We said okay, the way to wealth is entrepreneurship, my husband will start his own chiropractic business. So we moved to Pennsylvania, for him to start his own practice thinking that in a year or two, he'll make all this money. It was 2007 the height of the economy. And I told my company, I'm moving Can I work from home? So they gave me this like trial period. They said, well let you try it for three months. Back in oh seven, no one worked from home. So it was like I thought this is probably not going to work. We need to be really careful with our money.   So what we decided to do, Michael is instead of buying a big house in Pennsylvania, after we sold our big house in Houston, we decided to house hack, I saw this little four unit apartment building right behind us practice that had that was for sale. And I thought you know what the building that my husband wants to lease in is also for sale. I could buy that building. It has three tenants and four garages. And we could buy this four unit live in one of the units and essentially the rental income would cover the expense of living and the expense of starting his practice. So I never thought about that until I came here and saw these properties for sale. And I was just thinking, what would be a wise move? Well, that would be a wise move because we'd have a little extra money.   So it really started only as a protection airy move because we were relocating and starting a business. Not because at that point, I thought it was the way to Well, that took me a long time to figure that out.   Michael: Oh my gosh. And so how did it go once you bought those buildings?   Anna: It went really, really well. Obviously, we were living well below our means, right. But we were working on building his business and had another child at that point. And so I was working full time he was doing his business. And we learned to become landlords, we learned to update property, you know, update our units and fix toilets and answer tenant concerns and collect rents. We basically self managed everything because we didn't know any better, right? So we learned the hard way.   And what happened was the next year, my husband's business did amazing. But then the end of 2008, we hit the Great Recession, I worked for AIG, who was going under who was in the news every day, I was told, look for another job, we're probably going to be sold, we're probably going to have our department, you know, gone laid off. And I lost about three quarters of my 401k the same week. And i i It was one of the hardest weeks I've ever been through. I also found out I was pregnant with baby number three the same week. So my job lost the 401k. Pregnant. And I was the only breadwinner because my husband had a business startup with lots and lots of debt.   And the only thing that went well, during that time, my goal was that my tenants were still paying. And I thought, everything I've been taught and taught our clients about the stock market only works until it doesn't like the biggest companies are crashing, and they're not coming back. Right. So I learned that my trust in a job and my trust in the stock market was not well placed. And the only thing that was consistent was my tenants needed a place to live and they were still paying.   And so what I did is I took the rest of my 401k I took a loan against it, and I put it as a down payment on another four unit building. Because I thought if I lose my job, I'll at least have an extra 1000 to 1200 a month coming in to cover the cost of diapers and formula a new baby. And I just bought it again as a protectionary move because I realized the power of that income that was even stable during a mass recession, the great recession. And that was the first time I had the aha moment in early oh nine, that real estate was the path I was going to take for financial wealth creation and stability.   Michael: Wow. Wow. That's unbelievable. So.   Anna: It was crazy.   Michael: So I mean, you really saw these as as defense moves so much more than offense?   Anna: Yes, at the time. Absolutely. It was just, I got to put food on the table. We've got you know, we moved to rural Pennsylvania from one of the largest cities in the world, Houston. And so I knew I couldn't just go out and find another six figure job really quickly living literally in the middle of cornfields and farmland and chocolate. So I thought I've got to create extra income so that when I get laid off from AIG, and I take a lower paying job, we'll still be able to cover the cost of his business and to, to live for a while till things got better.   So, you know, I wish I could say I was smart enough to figure out 10 years before when I first heard about real estate, that it was a way to create wealth. But I just had to kind of figure that out through really, you know, the economy collapsing before I realized, wow, there's something more powerful about real estate than just something that'll cover our expenses like this is really a way to preserve wealth. Why didn't I ever learn about this?   So I decided at that moment, this is the time for me to go all in to learn. And I bought one book, didn't have blogs didn't have YouTube, I bought one book, Multifamily Millions by Dave Lindell. And I'm like, Oh, my goodness, I have these three properties now, basically 12 units. And if you buy multifamily, you can force appreciation, and you can make them worth more and not only create more income, but create equity to then be able to go buy the next one.   Well, I had no money, Michael, I mean, all of our money was in our stock, my stock market, and it was in these down payments, and it was in my husband's business. So I thought the only way for me to grow is I've got to fix up these units force the appreciation. So that one book was kind of like an aha at the same time. And I started just working on fixing up the unit's we had, making them worth more, and then waiting for banks to finally agree to let me take the equity to continue to buy the next one, then the next one and the next one. And once I figured that out, it was really, really quick, how wealthy we were able to become just from small multi units kind of doing the BRRRR method.   Michael: So you were house hacking before it was a thing you were doing birds before it was a thing that you were revolutionary, and this is amazing.   Anna: I never thought of it that way before. Yeah, makes me feel better about it taking me a decade to figure it out.   Michael: Totally, totally. So were you doing that fix up, work yourself? Are you having contractors do the work? What was that like?   Anna: Oh, We did everything the wrong way, looking back, but it made us we gained a lot of wisdom through the mistakes, right? We took it all on ourselves because we didn't have any other money. And so at the time, I didn't have a support group that could say you can use other people's money to buy these properties you get and there were no hard money lenders, they all went under, right during us, 08-09, like lending dried. And so I didn't know, you know, my banks wouldn't help the banks wouldn't let me have equity. They knew I worked for AIG, and was probably one week away from a job loss. Real estate was going under. So they didn't want to lend on real estate.   So I couldn't find anybody to say yes, to help me take that equity. And I didn't have anyone to encourage me that you don't need the banks to grow like, hey there seller financing, when I finally figured that out. And I was able to grow through seller financing. Like it was another one of those just the next thing and the next thing, but I just didn't have a support system or anyone to challenge my thinking, to let me realize that I really could grow more real estate even though I had no money.   Michael: Yeah. That's so interesting. That's so interesting. And so if we take just a step back, because you did something that I think so many investors have a really hard time wrapping their heads around, you went from single family to a four unit, almost seemingly overnight. Aside from being scared and and trying to play defense, was there a mental shift? Or how did you wrap your head around,Okay, well, I understand single families because I lived in one and I've owned one, I've tried to flip on to then buying a four unit building, that's a leap that I think a lot of people have a hard time with. How did you get there?   Anna: You know, I think I didn't really have that mind block of fear of that, because everything I was doing was so new, right? It was like, we're gonna start a business because I want to be home with my kid. And the only way for me to do it is become more reliable on my husband's income than mine. So we're just gonna have to figure out how to be an entrepreneur and start a chiropractic business, right. So I was like, Okay, I'm willing to move to an estate, start a business, my husband's a great doctor, but he was not a businessman, no entrepreneurial brain in a bone in his body, he just okay, wasn't thinking about that. So I'm like, I'll have to learn how to do his marketing, I'll have to learn how to do billing and how to hire people.   So I was willing to do whatever it takes, because my why was so important to me, like, I will get home with my kids, I don't care what I have to learn, I'm going to figure it out, to help him be successful. And the real estate was just a small piece of that. So it was another another one of those things, I looked at what it would cost to lease space. And it was really expensive. So I thought we're gonna have a lot of risk that we're signing a multi year lease, and 95% of businesses fail in the first couple of years. So that's not super smart.   But I see that there's a building here for sale or for lease, what if we bought it since there's tenants? What would that do to our expenses? And if the business failed? Could we lease it out to someone else? So it was just those wheels turning going, how can I figure this out? How can we start a risky business with a lot of money, a lot of debt, and do it in the safest risky way we can. And that's how I figured out hey, let's buy this property. It wasn't that I thought I'm gonna move to four units from a single family it was, let's do something that's financially smart, that protects us as much as possible. So I didn't have that that block, but I was willing to do whatever it took to succeed at me getting home with my kid, that's really what it came down to.   Michael: I love that. And it's something I talk about all the time with investors is have this why develop your why figure out what's going to push you through the scary times and pull you through the unknowns.   Anna: Absolutely. And that that removes fear when you have at least the confidence to say I know what it is that I want. And I'm willing to move Hell or High Water to figure it out, no matter how long it takes, it removes some of the fear, right? I never could say, I can't handle a four unit or I can't handle that, or it's too big it was, this is what I need to do. I've got to stretch myself, I got to start thinking outside of the box and just figure it out until I figure it out. And I think that that that attitude is what really helped me.   So if you're struggling to go from single to four unit, it's only scary in your mind because you think it's so different. But it's really not that much different. It's just four units in one building instead of buying, you know, for single family houses one at a time. So surround yourself with people listen to podcasts like this where you're hearing other people doing it, it makes it much less scary and then just do it.   Michael: Yeah, that's so good. And then so when did you move into the really scary five unit plus space?   Anna: So that first building was actually commercial, right? So it was like a mixed use five unit. And then I bought the four units and what I did is is after that great recession When I pulled my 401k, and I bought that third building and I read multifamily millions, then it was like, Okay, now I need a plan that if I want to replace, you know, $150,000 of income, I'm going to need to buy, you know, one four unit building every year for the next so many years, and then I'm going to need, you know, then it was I need three, four unit buildings to to really meet my number.   So I just made a plan that said, I need 60 units. And when I have 60 units, I can leave my job. So how can I get 60 units. And so in my market now, I wanted to go straight for that 60 unit, or a 30 unit or a 20. But I had no money. Zero. Banks wouldn't lend to me that wasn't going to happen. So I said, Where is there opportunity. And in my market space, there were a lot of four unit buildings for sale. And so I'm like, there's all these four unit buildings for sale, and they're sitting on the market, because this was the Great Recession, nobody was buying real estate.   So I thought four units is what I'm going to focus on because everyone's still buying the singles because now they're dirt cheap, richer, people are buying the bigger ones. So what can I buy? What can I afford? Well, I'll do one four unit at a time. And there's a whole bunch of them available. So I focused on the four units, because that's what there was, once I bought enough of them when I had 60 units. That's when I said Okay, at this point, I could literally walk away from my job and we didn't live on any of it. It took me five years to get 60 units.   Okay, so it's 12 units a year for five years, when banks said no. And when I got to that point, I decided, you know, before I quit my job, I really want to buy a much larger apartment building and syndicate my first deal. Because if I know I can do the first one. And I've already essentially, you know, for 10 years done the four unit buildings, it's just one in one location, instead of a whole bunch of separate ones, I had the confidence I could do a bigger complex because I was already managing 60 units, it's just a matter of making make it making it all in one building with more investment dollars.   Michael: So you were self managing that 60 unit portfolio?   Anna: Yes, I told you I learned the hard way, right. I wouldn't tell you all to do it that way now. But I live in rural Pennsylvania, I didn't have a lot of good property management options. And I didn't think I could afford them. Because again, my goal was get home with my babies like I need to figure out how to how to keep everything inexpensive to get the income where it needs to be. And my husband was a chiropractor working three days a week. So he had two days a week that he actually enjoyed the hands on. And he's like, I enjoy doing it. So I'll handle it.   So I did the money side, the people side and he did the maintenance side. Now we have staff and we have all kinds of other systems in place, right, but but at first it was just one rental at a time we'll self manage. We had some good contractors, right good trades in the area. And we'll get there. And then right before I decided to leave, that was my last goal is I'm going to syndicate my first deal. I found a 73 unit apartment building. Right in my backyard. It was off market. Right before it was listed. I met up with a seller and I bought it from him. And then I thought oh no, no, I'm gonna raise like $2 million that I don't have where am I going to find the money. So I reached out to some other people and I partnered with two people.   So we ended up joint venturing it instead of syndicating it. But when I did that first joint venture, and I had an investor say yes to me for a couple million dollar investment. Because I had worked with high net worth investors for 20 years, I knew how to talk to him about this investment, versus all these other type of investments, right. So I just said, this is a great investment. And once I got that first investment done, I knew that I would be able to syndicate and scale much, much bigger deals at that point.   Michael: That's incredible. And so I have to know that what came next after that 73 unit.   Anna: So after the 73 unit, I gave my notice to AIG. So all of that fear that I was going to lose my job in 2008. Because I worked with really complicated private placement hedge fund wrapped investments. Bermuda offshore, they couldn't sell our division, we were too complicated. And my job was really complicated. So I had that job safety because of what I did. That kept me from ever being laid off. And so I was able to give notice and walk away at 20 years and retire.   And at that point, I said to myself initially, okay, I'm just going to start doing bigger deals with my free time, right? And then I realized, all that desire that why for me to be home with my kids, and at this point, by the time I could finally retire I had four children, but they were all in school, Michael. So it's like, okay, they're all in school. What am I going to do with the rest of my time? Am I really going to sit back and you know, just go to the beach and You know, eat bon-bons, or am I gonna do something bigger?   And it took me a couple couple of months to really figure out what that bigger was. I didn't need to do a deal to do a deal anymore. I had created the wealth and the financial freedom. And what was really interesting is all that time I was so focused on the cash flow. And I never had to do a PFS because I was working with a small local bank. And that's when I had to do this big syndicate this big 73 and a joint venture. And I had to go to Freddie Mac for a, you know, multifamily loan and they needed a PFS. It was the first time that I realized that I actually have a multi million dollar net worth with all these apartments that I built up, I wasn't thinking about net-worth, I was thinking about income income, and how many do I need to grow this income?   When I realized that I had that net net worth and that I had the income and now I had partners who wanted to invest with me. I knew I could take my wealth growing to a much higher level by just continuing to do big deals. And so it was the first time that I decided, okay, I'm actually going to start syndicating bigger deals. I've worked with investors for 20 years, I've managed all these properties all this time. It just was kind of a natural thing for me to go into syndication, so I really didn't have any fear about it. It was really more taking time to figure out what's the best structure that I'm going to use for building multifamily syndications? Do I want to go solo? Do I want to partner with other people? Do I want to do joint ventures with a lot of different groups? So it took me some time to kind of figure that out with trial and error to see what my business model was going to be.   Michael: Okay. And now you've you've landed that multifamily syndications with multiple partners is is the way to go.   Anna: Yes. And for everybody, it's a little bit different, right. So some people are consummate entrepreneurs and the idea that multifamily syndications is passive is is a misnomer. That's not true. If you're really going to go into multifamily syndications, there's a lot of work you're you're just switching careers, right, you're going from whatever your W2 was to now I have a career of building a business, and being an entrepreneur with very large apartment buildings.   For me, because I worked 70 to 80 hours a week for over a decade, in order to create financial freedom. Once I created financial freedom, and I knew all the sacrifices I made all those years, I said I want to grow, but not just the set for the sake of being a serial entrepreneur growing some big wealthy company, my time was more valuable, valuable to me than additional money. So I decided very strategically that I'm going to grow my business really strategically, from nine to three every day. And the moment my kids come through the door, I'm not working.   So however many deals and how whatever model I need to figure out how can I continue to scale, but do it five, four to five days a week, nine to three, that's what I'm going to do. And so what I've decided for me, because my time left with my kids is so important. I have eight years before my baby's out of the house, I've decided to really joint venture with a couple of other really strong operators, I co asset, manage our deals, but I'm not responsible for everything. Like in the beginning with our own properties, we did everything.   Now I get to focus on what I'm really good at working with investors and asset management. And so I co-GP with a couple of other really good operators. Rather than starting my own company, where I'm hiring a director of acquisitions and hiring a marketing person and investor relations. I just don't want to grow the huge corporate company, because my time is so valuable to me.   Michael: Yeah. And I think that's really kind of reflected in your company's name. Right?   Anna: Yes. Greater Purpose Capital. Yeah, love it. And part of that, too. I'll just touch on that for just a second, if you don't mind, just because you just brought that up.   Michael: Yeah.   Anna: I grew up in Section Eight apartments, right. So Section Eight housing, I had nobody in my family with wealth or that knew anything about money. And I still have family that are in Section Eight housing. I have tenants that are in Section Eight housing. And so one of my big why's what I realized is once my once I was retired, right, I no longer say I'm retire, but I'm financially free, right and doing what I love with real estate. I knew that I wanted to make a bigger impact with what I do.   So part of that is really helping and educating other investors that want to invest passively how they can grow their wealth with passive wealth through syndications. But the bigger piece is that I really want to impact our residents while we're growing wealth. So if I can teach our residents financial principles and teach them financial literacy, so that they can move out of my apartments one day and become financially independent and grow and also give them hope that you can grow up in poverty and you can still change the trajectory of your future by making wise financial decisions. That's like a huge part of my why now so I spend a lot of my time working on materials to impact my residents.   Michael: Okay, that's so amazing. Anna, thank you for the work that you do, because I couldn't agree more that education is really the key key component here that's definitely lacking, I think, throughout our education system.   Anna: Absolutely. And even through, you know, look at me, I mean, I got my degree. And I was at Bank of America and a private bank, going through a multi year financial advisory training, and I still didn't even learn how to budget my own checkbook, and and develop the wealth. We can tell lots of people how to grow wealth once you have it. But there's very little financial education to show people, what are different ways you can actually truly create wealth. And really, there's no greater way than rental property, real estate.   Michael: That's so good. You're also quite humble and that you have not mentioned that you are an Amazon Best Seller as an author. I would love if you could share a little bit about your book with our listeners.   Anna: Sure. Thank you so much. So I have been actually in four books that are a compilation of authors like Chicken Soup for the Soul. One of them I'm really proud of is called The Only Woman in the room. And it's a bunch of women, real estate investors who in oftentimes, where we're going, we speak at these conferences, we speak if at the events and we're the only woman in the room, we're the only woman on stage. So it's really an inspirational book, I would encourage your listeners to get especially if you're a woman, or if you're married to someone that's a woman that really wants to be involved in real estate. It's highly motivational.   And then the last book that I did is actually called Bringing Value and Leaving a Legacy and Finding Solutions. And so it's all about that, that look, building your business for the purpose of leaving a legacy and creating a greater impact on the world with what you're doing.   Michael: I love that. And those are available on Amazon. Is there another website where folks can check them out?   Anna: Yes, you can find them on my website at REI mom calm.   Michael: Reimom.com. I love it. I love it.   Anna: Thank you.   Michael: And and Greater Purpose Capital is that have its own specific website as well.   Anna: It does. So Greaterpurposecapital.com is where you can find syndications, if you want to invest passively if you're an accredited investor, and apartment deals where we really go into make a meaningful impact on the lives of our residents.   Michael: So good, so good. And I want to spend just the last couple of minutes here picking your brain around why you think multifamily is such a powerful asset class as compared to single family or small multifamily?   Anna: Sure. You know, I think the biggest thing with multifamily is it's really shown resilience over many different market cycles for investors, whether you're looking to grow wealth, whether you're looking to create income, or whether you're looking for a safe place to park your money. While we can't say investments are safe per se, multifamily has often been a preservation of capital play during really rough times uncertain times, kind of like today, right. And so it's why a lot of institutional investors come in and swoop up and pay top dollar for multifamily apartments because they're very resilient to economic downturns.   So, you know, while they provide amazing tax benefits on top of income and growth, they typically don't lose value, because there's ways for us to force appreciation. So even if the market softens a little in terms of what they'll pay for every dollar of income. If there's inflation, I can usually raise rents, right. And so they're assets that will continue to go up in value during times like this of inflation, where my rents will continue to go up in value. And even if I can't sell it, because it's come down in value a little bit, I can usually live on that cash flow for quite some time. And the cash flow isn't tremendously impacted during downturns.   So for me, it's that it's that really recession resilient investment, as long as you're buying the right type of multifamily in the right markets, right. So if they're not all the same, just like single family house, and the million dollar range is not the same as a single family house in the $50,000 range. You've got to be making sure that you're in markets that are really resilient with population growth and job growth and wage growth and job diversity and low crimes and great schools.   So if you invest in those kind of really strong markets, you'll make significantly more money in multifamily than you will in single family and it's not transactional, you don't have to just buy and sell and buy and sell and buy and sell. You can buy one four unit building or 1 20 unit building or 100 unit building. And you can make a lot of money on it for a really long time and bank on that income for 510 20 years rather than having to you know flip and repurchase over and over and over again.   Michael: That's great. That's great. I think so many of our listeners are mostly single family investors some small multifamily and then some some mid sized to large multifamily. What are some Some tips, tricks, tidbits of advice you can give folks who are thinking about getting into multifamily, where they can hopefully avoid some of the stumbling blocks that you've maybe encountered or you've seen others encounter?   Anna: Absolutely, it's such a good question, you know, I would say first is start small and start where you are. So if you're in a market that has properties that you can afford that are profitable, start there, right? If you're not, then look for a market where you really have some, some alignment with some other investor that's in that market that knows it really, really well. So don't try to go into a whole new market on your own by yourself, if you don't have experience with larger multifamily, buy a small property and learn on a small scale. Because while there's a lot of and I speak at some of these events, right, so I'm not knocking it, but there's a lot of events and there's a lot of books that say go straight to syndication, right.   And the reality is, there's a lot of people that want to go straight to syndication, and now they're taking on millions of dollars of investor money, with very little experience. And when we have economic downturns like the Great Recession, like the pandemic, like where we are now, you better have made a whole lot of mistakes that made you really wise on the small mistakes that will keep you from losing your shirt and your investors millions of dollars, during times of uncertainty. So starting small gives us wisdom, it lets us fail small, so that we can fail up into the next thing and the next thing. So don't feel like if you're not ready or you don't feel that you have the competence or the scale or the money to jump straight into syndication, that you're doing yourself a disservice by starting small, starting small can actually be the wisest, safest way for you to do it.   And if you own the property yourself, 100% you can depend on that income for a much longer period of time than you can in a syndication.   Michael: That's so, so good. I once heard the phrase, I never trust anyone without a limp. And similar to what you're saying, if you've never done it before, you don't have the experience or the wisdom to fall back on when things go south.   Anna: Absolutely. And things can go south pretty quickly. You know, there's a lot to learn. So don't go it alone. That's the other thing is we started alone and because I did everything myself and I didn't even have a network of other people to bounce things off of. I made a lot of mistakes. You know, that took me a lot longer. So buy your own properties are buy with a partner but but listen to podcasts, you know, list, fill your mind with information, so that you can learn things without having to learn it by making the mistake.   Michael: Yeah. Oh, that's so good. That's so good. Anna this was so wonderful is the best way for people to learn more about you to get in touch with you via the websites that you mentioned previously.   Anna: Absolutely. You can also follow me on social on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. I'm Anna “ReiMom” Kelley.   Michael: Awesome. Fantastic. Well, thank you again for hanging out with me. This has been so wonderful. We'll definitely be in touch soon. I can't wait to see where you head next.   Anna: Thank you so much. It's been my pleasure. Take care.   Michael: Alrighty, everybody that was our episode a big big big thank you to Anna for coming on the show. I learned a ton. We are definitely gonna be having her back on to talk more in depth about syndication, so keep an eye and ear peeled for that episode down the road.
