With no credibility, Allison raised money from a private investor on her first deal. How? First, she had a strong business plan based on her deep market knowledge. Second, she was professional, using the proper lingo and a professional investment sheet. Though she’s only 25, she’s built an impressive portfolio and is now helping other real estate investors find investors through social media and content platforms. Learn why Allison insists that you must intimately know your market and have a granular investing strategy to find your ideal clients.
