Howdy and welcome! We are a husband and wife team of real life real estate investors. We started with one property almost eleven years ago when we were broke college students, and have built our way to over 30 rental units; adding more all of the time. We love property investment and the incredible way that it has financially helped our family and love to share our knowledge with others.
We do this by sharing in detail our own stories and experiences. If we’ve succeeded in something, you can learn about that here. If we have failed (and believe me we have failed!), you can read about that as well. We strive to be completely transparent in sharing everything related to our real estate business.
We firmly believe that there is no reason why you can’t follow the same path as us. In fact, you can probably match or exceed our achievements given the right circumstances, and our website is where we teach you to do just that.
Who we are
Brad’s father was a successful electrician for many years, so he grew up learning about how to run a prosperous small business. He chose to attend a military high school in Virginia, and became the battalion commander (the highest rank that a student can receive). He also was a college football player, playing for the College of the Holy Cross as a defensive end. Brad is all or nothing. Either he is dressed in a nice suit or in slippers and torn flannel pajama pants (he affectionately refers to these as his pirate pants). He makes the best coffee ice cream on the planet.
Lacie started her first business in the third grade. She made earrings one afternoon while at her grandma’s and wore them to school the following week, and received many compliments from teachers and classmates. She proceeded to make many more earrings and sold them to all of the teachers in her school. Flush with $200 cash, she has been hooked on creating businesses ever since. Lacie was born and raised in Montana and loves adventure. She loves to snowboard in the winter and attempts to garden in the summer.
We started Small Town Investor to help other families change their lives using real estate. Whether it’s a few hundred extra dollars a month, or replacing your income in order to quit your job; whatever your dreams are, we want to help you make them a reality!
