Susan Reehill has defied the odds time and time again. She was a teenage mother, having her first son at the young age of sixteen. For most young and single mothers, the chance of becoming a homeowner, let alone an investor is slim, to say the least. At forty-two years old, Susan decided to make two big jumps in her life and career: graduate from college and buy her first home. She succeeded at accomplishing both.
As the years passed by, Susan wanted to be a closer distance to her local downtown area. So, she decided to look at buying a new home. When her old home was having a hard time selling, she decided to try and rent it out, which she did with very little property management knowledge or landlording skills. Her tenant brought in ten different individuals to live with her, half of which weren’t authorized on the lease. In only six months, her tenant did more damage to her house than Susan had done in the several years she lived there.
But, this didn’t stop Susan’s will to create long-lasting wealth. She began listening to more real estate podcasts, one of which was the Real Estate Rookie podcast. She ended up joining Ashley’s first round of the Real Estate Rookie Bootcamp, where after 90 days Susan was able to score a phenomenal deal, over $100k+ under the asking price!
