In this podcast episode, Daniel St Jean and Victoria Cluney talk with Jacqueline Marshall, a real estate investor. Jacqueline covers her background and shares how she got started in real estate investing, despite not knowing anything about it at the time. She talks about how she is the poster child for someone who can be successful in real estate investing without having everything figured out beforehand.
Jacqueline got into investing in real estate accidentally, but after a few years, she decided to make it intentional. She realized that the passive income from her rentals was replacing her income from dental hygiene, so she decided to focus on real estate investing full-time.
She shares her experience flipping houses, and how she got into the business with no prior knowledge or experience and used YouTube to teach herself DIY skills. She emphasizes the importance of finding an investor-friendly real estate agent and shares her strategy for flipping houses in the current market landscape.
Jacqueline has been investing in real estate for over 7 years and teaching others how to do the same for 2 years. She believes that anyone can be successful in real estate investing, regardless of experience or resources, as long as they have grit and determination. This was instilled in Jacqueline Marshall from a young age by her mother. Even after facing challenges, she has persevered and achieved a great deal of success in her career as a real estate investor.
She recommends that new investors focus on one asset class and gain knowledge about that area before moving on to other investment opportunities. Successful people have to be prepared to face challenges and setbacks. They also have to be willing to work hard and be tenacious.
The conversation also covers the importance of confidence for women in male-dominated industries. It cites Jacqueline as an example of a woman who has been successful in real estate despite not fitting the stereotype of what a “successful” investor looks like. She emphasizes the importance of taking control and doing research in order to be knowledgeable about what you are hiring for.
