Today we’d like to introduce you to Dana Bull.
Dana, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with real estate. At age 22, my boyfriend (now husband) and I purchased our first condo. At that time, I knew nothing, and I mean nothing, about contracts to purchase, home inspections, securing a mortgage, or home ownership in general. Having little guidance, we stumbled through the transaction and made every mistake in the book. There had to be a better way.
These challenges motivated me to learn how to make better and smarter decisions when it comes to buying real estate and handling transactions. I rolled up my sleeves, obtained my real estate license and went on to acquire dozens of rental properties before my 28th birthday. While building my portfolio, I networked tirelessly and forged relationships with countless attorneys, lenders, and contractors.
After leaving my corporate career in tech marketing to pursue real estate full-time, I carved out a niche working with young buyers, providing coaching, mentorship, and buyer agent representation. I’ve worked with countless young buyers and new investors in and around Boston.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Becoming a real estate investor has taken me down an extremely challenging yet rewarding road. There are so many difficult issues to work through on a daily basis. When your own hard earned money is at stake, things can get stressful very quickly.
I’ve had my fair share of terrible tenants, overwhelming property management issues (think leaking roofs, frozen pipes), to good old fashion land feuds with neighbors. There’s never a dull moment.
These experiences have given me a wealth of knowledge, which I pass on to all of my clients.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Dana Bull Real Estate Coaching – what should we know?
Over the years I’ve worked as a Boston area real estate agent, I’ve been providing clients with smart strategies for buying or investing in properties. Now, I’m bringing those strategies to a larger audience, coaching first-time buyers and investors regardless of geography. Buying a home or investing in real estate is one of the most expensive and life-altering decisions most people make. But few take the time to educate themselves on the process, market, laws, strategies, and economics involved. That’s where I come in.
I know how overwhelming it can be to get started with buying real estate. Without guidance, it’s easy for a first-time buyer or new investor to get lost in the shuffle. As a realtor, I quickly realized the demand for some good old fashioned coaching and mentorship. I take great pride in helping buyers prepare for the home-buying process. My goal is to help buyers gain as much knowledge as possible before purchasing a home. I approach my work with honesty and passion and to me, there is nothing more rewarding than instilling confidence in buyers as they enter the real estate market.
Clients can book one-on-one coaching sessions with me through my website at DanaBull.com. Local buyers can also work with me as their real estate agent.
