The Gold Collar Investor

Nov 21, 2022

In today’s show, Pancham interviews Leka Devatha - real estate developer, broker, and president of Rehabit Homes, Inc.

Leka knew she wanted to be her own boss, and she immediately recognized that real estate investing is the best way to get started! Today, she has hundreds of transactions, has developed about $100 million in real estate, and is giving back to the community by teaching that there are other ways to create wealth.

She is ready to help you break out of Wall Street investments as she reveals her 8 years of investing experience, the investor mindset, and more! She’ll also talk about the struggles with her 1st house flip, diversifying her rental portfolio, and building her networks and community.
