Welcome to the Multi-FAMILY zone podcast, where business meets family. The hosts of the show, Julia and Gino Barbaro, have been married for over twenty years, and have six children.
Julia homeschools the children, and recently became a marriage and life coach to help couples become better communicators and help enrich their lives. The couple is constantly asked about how they balance their entrepreneurial and real estate journey while raising their kids. The Multi-FAMILY zone was created to address these questions, along with a host of questions from the Jake and Gino community.
This week Julia and Gino are joined by Anna Kelly. Anna is the founding partner of Zenith Capital Group, Apex Multifamily, and ReiMom.com. As a top ranked former Financial Relationship Manager for a Private Bank, and having worked in the financial sector for 20 years, Anna has a keen understanding of various financial tools available to grow and preserve wealth. Believing real estate to be one of the most powerful tools for creating stable cash flow, asset preservation, & equity growth (the trifecta of investments), Anna began investing in real estate 20 years ago.
She has purchased, renovated, sold, and rented millions of dollars in real estate across numerous asset classes, while working full time and raising 4 active children. Anna recently retired from her corporate career, after creating financial freedom through rental property investing. She currently owns and manages a portfolio valued over $16 Million across 175 doors, and is a passive investor in multiple apartment syndications.
As a General Partner and sponsor, Anna actively seeks out the best multifamily investment opportunities for her partners and investors. She has coached numerous new investors through the purchase of their first rental properties and flip projects, and enjoys helping others to overcome their fears, increase their knowledge, and minimize their risks in real estate. Finally, she is an Amazon #1 Best Selling Author & runs a meetup group for Women in Real Estate: Rei Like A Girl!
