Today we revisit with Bonnie & Kerry Staples. Bonnie & Kerry loved their corporate jobs.
They were well respected within their companies, but knew they were building someone else’s dream and not working on their own. They were originally drawn to real estate through single family investing, but after seeing the bigger picture on scalability, they wanted to invest into apartments. They hired a mentor/educator to accelerate their specific knowledge of apartment investing.
We originally spoke with them 2 years ago after they purchased their first building. They bought of a 106 unit apartment building called Casa Flores. After 18 months of rehabbing and making it into a “community”…they sold that building and rewarded their investors with a huge return.
Now, they own 3 large apartment buildings; Bella Vida with 255 units, Fairmeadows with 200 units, and Spanish Timbers with 160 units. They quit their jobs in the last 2 years and work on real estate investing full time. They have the passion to make older apartments into better communities.
Today, they are in charge of their own apartment business and working on their dream.
