About Me: 

I am married with 2 adult children and 1 beautiful granddaughter and a cute little Grandsons.
My husband and I started investing about 9 years ago after he watched an infomercial on real estate. We now have 43 units which is a mix of single family homes and duplexes. We got so busy we started a property management company and now manage more than 200 units.
We started this business because we wanted to be comfortable when we retire.
My husband and I love working together.
In June of 2014, thanks to real estate investment, I quit my JOB!!!
I am always wanting to acquire more properties. So,I am always on the hunt!

I wish I would have found Dean sooner. I would be in a better place financially.

I love to traveling, all kinds of boating activities,Oh yeah eating seafood and camping or just being outdoors, and going to Seahawks games. GO HAWKS!

New To This

I'm a newbie here and I'm treating this site as my new face book lol. Just wanted to say what's up and I hope you make lots of money and have crazy fun. I'm looking to build my buyers list now and get really involved with the DG Fam.

Hi Donna

I am so impressed by some of the things you have done. There are many folks that have been traditional investors that are almost starting over with Dean. If you keep doing what you are doing you will succeed.

Congratulations on your success. Likewise, my wife and I are rei.we only invest in single family units. This year I have investing in quit claim tax deeds from investors who purchased tax certificates. We achieved one of our goals of being debt free on our investments this past year. My wife asks me how many properties we need, and my answer has been one more. I have purchased four units this year. Good luck! Mossyoak

Amer Brdjanin's picture

Hi Donna,i need to find new buyers.Because my buyers are telling me not to work real estate agents.
can you tell me how can i find some good buyers?i am in Nashville TN.

I know that who ever is telling you not to deal with agents is not familiar with investing with deal makers.

This site tells it like it is.

I will keep in touch.

Donna, not too leave you out.. I'm happy that
I see that people pull it togther on this site.

I wrote a fellow DGFamily member about some help.

No sweat.

Try harder or try SMARTER.

Edge 2015

RNjudy's picture

Hi Donna. I also live in Washington and also am a nurse and real estate investor. This year I am leaving nursing and going into real estate full time. I am getting ready to flip flip flip and acquire some more rentals. I already invest in more than one area at a time. Are you going to this years EDGE event? If so, look for me and my husband as we will both be there. I would love to meet you. I am in the Battle Ground, WA area which is about 1/2 hour from Portland, Oregon. We are you at? Judy PS....this will be my first Edge event...and my husband hasn't been exposed to this at all. We started investing in real estate several years back. I have slowly become more involved in it over time because I love real estate. Sounds like you have followed a similar path.
