And in this episode, Stephanie sits down with host Grace Ormsby to share how she and her husband’s investment journey was sparked by their desire to live a life beyond their day jobs and talk about the “pains” they endured to attain a portfolio currently valued at $2.5 million and spanning six properties.

Stephanie also highlights the eye-opening lessons she has learned throughout her eight-year experience as a property investor, such as understanding how to leverage the expertise of real estate professionals and learning how the economic climate (as well as other factors) of a location can affect your returns, among others.

Additionally, the duo take a behind-the-scenes look at how the husband-and-wife tandem overcame being stuck at property number two, unpack the interesting and strategic way Stephanie derived more income to continue growing their portfolio and delve into how the couple plans to proceed with their journey.
