"We actually started by deciding to buy a duplex to live in for a first house. And we lived in one side and rented out the other. And we had a really great experience with it. Eventually, we moved out and rented out both sides and then eventually sold it for a profit." - Lia Francisco
"We really love working with people. And we have a lot of years between us, experience with people. Tim is also a physical therapist, I'm a mental health therapist, and our whole careers have been based on relationships with our clients, and we really seek to build a rapport and build trust and help people, and I think that really helps in this business." - Lia Francisco
"We've had tons of training, Tim has taken so much real estate investment training, and I have had a mentor for real estate, and we've had coaches, and we just seek always to learn and always learn more and give a lot of options to the different people that we're working with." - Lia Francisco
"One of the main reasons is that we can get a quick profit from fix and flip, and you don't have to deal with the management, the hassles of managing the property and landlord issues that go along with it." - Tim Francisco
"As Christians, we really want to demonstrate God's love to these people [motivated sellers], and being able to offer them solutions to their problems is what we want to do for them. And I think that is an unfair advantage for us to help people." - Tim Francisco
"I don't think everyone will do it. But I think that if you have money, you can still invest in real estate and don't have to do the work. You can partner with investors like us that do the work, and you can still invest in real estate." - Tim Francisco
