published 2 months ago by BiggerPockets.com : Joshua Dorkin and Brandon Turner

From fashion design work in India, to a corporate career with Nordstrom... to leaving that career to flip 40+ houses in 6 years – all in one of the hottest markets on the planet! Seattle investor Leka Devatha has quite a story to tell, and a lot of hard-won wisdom too! From her 6 tips for finding and keeping great contractors, to the exact criteria she uses when looking for a flip opportunity, Leka spills the beans and outlines a framework you can apply whether you choose to flip, BRRRR, wholesale, or buy and hold. We cover a crucial tax tip for anyone hiring a contractor, ever. Leka shares an unexpected silver lining brought on by the pandemic. And your mind will be blown when she tells how a "cosmetic" flip opportunity morphed into 3-year odyssey and wound up rewarding her with a 7-figure (yes, 7-figure) payday.
