From Philly to Financial Freedom: A Member’s Journey Through Our Program

podcast Jul 27, 2023


What does it look like to come from New York, now live in LA, and invest in your first property in Philadelphia? This is the story of one of Open Spaces' wonderful members, Rupali. She is joined today by Open Spaces' Chief Media Officer, Cheryl Tan, as she shares her journey of becoming a long-distance investor.

Welcome once again to the Open Spaces Real Estate Sensei Sessions, where people who have been through Palak and Niti's program share their insights, their ups, and their downs in the real estate game as a valuable way of offering community support to other first-time investors out there. 

For Rupali, she had never owned a property before and still hasn't actually seen her Philly apartment in person! But after taking the Open Spaces course, she set aside some early bird West Coast hours to scout online for East Coast deals – and she soon found the right BRRRR opportunity for her. 

Rupali graciously shares her experience of how the weekly calls with Palak, the clearly laid out timeline of events, and the way to manage her contractor were all part of an integral support plan that means she has remained calm throughout the entire process of her first real estate deal. 

This episode will be of tremendous value to anyone who is not just looking at their first BRRRR deal, but also that deal being a long-distance one. Please join us.
