Di’s interest in real estate investing began in her mid-twenties. She has owned over 2 dozen homes and has taken part in numerous real estate-related ventures from note buying to negotiating short sales to fix and flips. Having been licensed as a real estate broker in Oregon, Arizona and Colorado, she has enjoyed assisting many people in finding real estate that suits their needs.
Currently, Di and her partner Nan Tennenbaum are fixing and flipping multiplexes in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus has a strong rental market and slow but consistent real estate appreciation. With Nan being a Columbus native it was the perfect choice of cities to begin buying, restoring and reselling rentals as a team. These properties are rehabbed to rental-ready condition before resale. Every property must pass the test of acquiring a solid positive cash flow for the end-buyer investor before Di and Nan will consider investing in the project themselves.
