The couple works together in harmony, focusing on building the foundation of a healthy marriage that will generate a lifetime of financial security through real estate investing.
When Brian’s job relocated him from Allentown, Pennsylvania, to Rochester, New York, in 2013, real estate investing, flipping houses, and marriage were not on his radar.
The same year, Lisa moved from Jacksonville, Florida, to teach at the Rochester School for the Deaf.
By 2014, they both created eHarmony accounts with an online dating service designed to help strangers find love based on compatibility.
They scheduled their first date on January 1, 2015.
June 24, 2018, marked the wedding that placed the couple on a list of over 2 million successful relationships sparked by eHarmony.
Brian is a huge football fan of the Philadelphia Eagles that play in the Lincoln Financial Field. So, when their son was born in August 2019, they named him after the home team stadium, Lincoln.
And to think, it all started online.
“It was a strange dynamic not having met in person,” Brian said. “So, I suggested meeting at a bar with pool tables and darts.”
The chemistry created a perfect match that ignited happy beginnings.
Brian’s business brain has a hardwire to the internet, where he finds himself searching for innovative ideas in real estate investing. He stumbled across a Facebook ad for a 3-day course at the Home Flipping Workshop in the Spring of 2021.
“I’d previously purchased two rental properties,” he said. “But I’d always considered becoming a more serious real estate investor.”
Lisa was skeptical when the couple encountered success in house flipping. “People say you shouldn’t work with your spouse,” she said. “But we have different strengths that balance each other out.”
Brian says they check their egos at the door.
With the intent of leaving a legacy of business and financial wealth to their son, Lincoln, they named the company LG Home Innovations, LLC.
After attending the 3-day Home Flipping Workshop, the couple decided to commit to a relationship with real estate investing and sign up for support with VestorPro.
Since then, they’ve purchased three properties:
Purchase Price: $90,000
Renovation Expenses: $40,000
Final Selling Price: $155,000
Purchase Price: $60,000
Renovation Expenses: $35,000
After-Repair Value (ARV): $110,000
Purchase Price: $70,000
Renovation Expenses: $0
“Our last deal was from an investor who wanted out of the real estate business,” Brian said. “So, the work was complete.”
The property was renovated and rented, and Brian and Lisa only had to acquire the financing.
“We learned a lot of what not to do and what to do more of,” Lisa said. “We’ve gained a lot of knowledge.”
Brain said they’ve partnered with another real estate investor to start venturing into Airbnb properties to increase cash flow for other real estate deals.
The couple has plans to use real estate investing to escape the cycle of working 9-5 jobs. They aim to continue working their jobs while flipping houses until the summer of 2025. Afterward, Brian and Lisa are planning to only work for themselves.
“I’m analytical,” he said. “I see it online, do the numbers, and then use the checklist.” We use the Home Flipping Evaluator from VestorPro.
“Regardless of how the house looks, can the number work,” Brian asked.
They also receive mentoring, coaching, resources, and discounts that accelerate the learning curve.
Lisa is no longer skeptical because she has seen the benefits of trusting the VestorPro process.
Glenn and Amber Schworm are co-founders of the Home Flipping Workshop and VestorPro. The husband-and-wife team has created a real estate investing and house-flipping strategy that works for students nationwide.
Brian and Lisa are on the right path to becoming a real estate power couple.
According to Glenn and Amber Schworm, there are several reasons why married couples should work together to build financial security through real estate investing:
Couples can achieve excellent financial stability and security by working together to build financial security by leveraging combined resources and expertise.
Does it matter who does what when couples work together flipping houses? The correct answer is no.
Do what you do best.
Brian and Lisa say they’re still learning the best roles that work in their relationship with real estate.
“But we are transitioning,” Brian said. “Although we’ve saved money doing the work ourselves, we’ve also lost the same amount with delays while holding the property.”
They are committed to tweaking their roles to learn what works best to prosper LG Innovations, LLC.
“It’s about flexibility,” he said. “I didn’t want to be married to my job for the next 30 years.” Instead, the couple is in harmony, focusing on building the foundation of a healthy marriage that will generate a lifetime of financial security through real estate investing.
