What we...

A timeline of what we've been up to...

2019 was the year we made the most in real estate and also invested the most. So now we're starting from ground zero. With rebuilding out emergency fund and having faith in the process! 

2014

July: We bought our first townhome for $148,000 using the VA loan.

2018

March: We partner with the Proroks and purchased a 6 bedroom home for our residential assisted living home. Purchase price for the house, $275,000. Our input $60,000+ and counting which included closing costs and start-up costs at 33% ownership.

February: We decided to buy another single family home that's 3200 sq ft sitting on almost 1/2 an acre of land with a casita.

2022

June: So we never planned to get into the Frenchie world, but when they bring you so much joy, its like a dream come true. As we learn to better the breed and give our fur babies the best lives, we decided to give this a try. We dropped $35k on Lil Miss Sugar Mama. Yupp, this Frenchie life is bananas. But if you know, you know. It's like how we would normally drop $50k on real estate, we decided we wanted to go hard on the Frenchie game and go all in. We just love this breed so much. We just want to spread that joy to everyone else.
