In this episode of the Apartment Investors Podcast, host Jonathan Twombly invites Mandy McAllister, a small multi-investor, to share her unique approach to real estate investment. Unlike most guests, Mandy is not relying on syndication or complex value adds. Instead, she solely focuses on purchasing low-maintenance properties and managing them herself.

Mandy also reveals how shifting her mindset around perfectionism and fear of failure enabled her to leave her career in medical device sales and start investing in real estate.

She shares some of her favorite strategies for adding non-construction-related value to her properties and her experience with a six-unit 1920s building. Mandy also talks about her recent move into the car wash business sector, which offers a different cash flow and risk profile than multi-family real estate.

Finally, Mandy talks about her role as CEO of GoBundance Women, a community of successful women who are focused on leading epic lives.

In this episode:
👉Achieving financial freedom and TIME freedom through real estate
👉How to add value to your properties without additional construction
👉Pros and cons of the car wash sector
👉How to acquire and take care of low-maintenance properties
👉Mandy’s project GoBundance Women, an organisation for women with a net worth of a million dollars or more.

📑More about Mandy McAllister

Mandy McAllister is a multifamily real estate investor, mindset ninja, and connector. She spent the bulk of her career in medical device sales chasing cases and commission checks. In 2021, Mandy left her W2 to lean on the financial independence she built through real estate investing. Mandy now serves as CEO of GoBundance women, a tribe of healthy, wealthy, generous women who choose to lead epic lives.

Her real estate expertise includes repositioning underperforming assets to increase cashflow and value. Her portfolio is currently comprised of 373 doors of B class workforce housing, furnished student housing and a motel reposition. She is most proud to be mama to her hilarious 7-year-old son Duncan who, coincidentally, wants to be a real estate investor when he grows up.
