When investing in real estate, it’s important to act with intention by focusing on the end goal. We are excited to sit down with Nicole Rueth, the number one loan originator in Colorado and buy and hold investor, on this week’s episode! Nicole started investing in her early 40s while a wife, mother of three, and working full time. She has since intentionally grown her portfolio to 23 units in the Denver area.
We cover so much with Nicole like how to analyze economic trends to better understand the market, why it’s important to find and vet a mortgage lender to suit your needs, and how to choose between a 15- or 30-year loan to best match your business model. Nicole has a very specific plan in place to achieve her goals and she shares with us how to focus on a model that will efficiently get you there.
Nicole runs a successful brokerage business, is a mother to three amazing children, and is in a beautiful marriage all while building her portfolio to 23 units. But it didn’t start out that way. Growing up with a single mother, on food stamps, and moving often, Nicole spent a lot of time as a young adult trying to figure out who she was. Along the journey, she invested in the traditional markets and lost during each downturn. Though, she was able to recover through real estate. She doesn’t speculate or flip, she buys based on her strict rules and holds for long term appreciation and rental income. She now spends her days sharing everything she’s learned because for her, real estate is stability, security, and multi-generational.
On today’s episode, we discuss a ton with Nicole, including:
– How a solid education can help find a good deal in any market
– How to find and vet a lender that will advocate for you and your business
– Why you should focus on the end goal and design a business model to get you there
– Ways you can narrow down your search criteria by understanding tenants wants and needs
– The value in having a partnership where you both complement each other
