Monick Halm’s Haitian parents taught her to get a good job as either a doctor, lawyer, professor or engineer. She chose law and it wasn’t until she went to purchase her own home in Los Angeles that she started learning about real estate investing. She ended up house-hacking with a friend and realized the advantages to creating passive income. Then she met a mentor who introduced her to apartment syndication and she quickly acquired over 1,000 units in 1 year! However, she realized there weren’t many women investors, so she made it her mission to educate women about real estate investing. She started an online community, a podcast and authored a book targeted to women investors. Monick joined us to share why everyone benefits women need to be rich. She also shares about the criteria of a good market, the market cycle, choosing the right team and leveraging other people’s money.
