Investors frequently hear that others are scaling their portfolio, but we rarely learn how. On today’s episode, we talk with Whitney Hutten, who went from an accidental house hack to partnering in over $378M in real estate assets by aligning her vision with her husband and creating profitable relationships.
We discuss the importance of vetting anyone you work with from turnkey providers and syndicators, to property managers and contractors and talk through all the tough questions one should ask when doing so. As investors, we can’t do it all and Whitney shares with us how she leveraged partnerships to grow and build her portfolio.
Whitney is a real estate investor and personal finance trainer whose vision is to help thousands of families on their path towards financial independence. After purchasing her first rental in 2002, and hitting a home run, then nearly losing it all on her second deal, Whitney took control and figured out how to invest in real estate the right way. She realized that success must leave clues, so she studied, and using her skills in research and business operations and training, she replicated the very personal finance and wealth creation strategies the wealthy use to create financial freedom. Today, Whitney is a partner in $378M+ of real estate assets, including 3,000+ residential units (SFR, MF, MHP, and assisted living) and 1,430+ self-storage. She loves trail running, mountain biking, climbing and camping (really anything outdoors!). She’s passionate about spending time with family and friends. Fun facts about Whitney: She was a Division I soccer player (played overseas when at 14); first (almost 2nd degree) black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and literally had to rip out her own hair on a big wall climb in Canada to free herself. In a previous work life, Whitney worked as a public health epidemiologist investing disease outbreaks and working in bioterrorism.
On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Whitney, including:
– Transitioning between assets classes
– The importance of running your own numbers on a turnkey property
– How to leverage your relationships to find and fund deals
– Ways to prove you have the experience to sponsor a syndication
– The positive outcomes of being aligned with your partner
