RSVP Session Two: Why Women Make Better Real Estate Investors RSVP
Lena Guirguis is a real estate coach, asset management consultant, and author. She is a partner at New Venture Solutions a full service Real Estate consulting firm, and co-founder of NV Property Management, a boutique-style firm offering its clients unique asset management systems and solutions. Lena also founded Stilettos & Hammers™, an all-women's real estate investment network focused on educating women and providing them with the tools and systems required to enable them to confidently start or expand their real estate portfolio.
Lena began her real estate journey at the age of 21 with the purchase of a mismanaged triplex in Eastern Ontario to buy, fix and hold. By the age of 25, she had acquired a multi-million dollar portfolio and was running one of Ottawa’s premier asset management firms.
While buy, fix and hold of multi-family properties has always been Lena’s preferred investing strategy, she has amassed multiple Rent-to-Own properties over the last decade and developed a RECO approved RTO System. She has also successfully completed several fix-and-flips and land severances.
Through her experience, Lena finds under performing properties with high potential and transforms them into quality rentals while creating ethical win-win situations for all involved by providing her investors and clients secure and hassle free returns, and providing her tenants with safe, quality units to call home. She has also developed a solid management system that allows both herself and her clients to remotely oversee the successful management of their investment property regardless of its location.
