Client Tips: How to Create Liquidity in Real Estate with Kelly Fasterling


For the first time ever on the Replace Your Income Podcast, we’re going to have one of our clients tell their story. Today, we welcome Kelly Fasterling, a long-time client who has transacted 13 properties with us.


Kelly’s background is a career in IT with over 25 years of experience creating software. After her 401k being halved twice in just under 10 years, she realized she wasn’t going to reach her goals through traditional retirement.


Like in most real estate success stories, the book that started it all was Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”. Her first property was a success, but finding a second good deal was a real challenge.


All of that changed when she met Steve Earl who introduced her to our Done For You process and shared a way of real estate investing that went beyond properties located in your backyard.


You may have encountered an argument against investing in real estate because it’s not liquid. But for Kelly, liquidity is one of the main reasons why she got into real estate in the first place!
