Episode 270:

About Vanessa Koppel:

Vanessa Koppel grew up in a small town in Amelia Island Florida, went to NYU and lived in NYC for 10 years. She worked professionally as a performer and a real estate agent for 7 years in NYC, and then worked as a sales executive at Hilton in midtown Manhattan for the past 3 years. In the past year, she has been back and forth from NYC to FL, working virtually and building her real estate business, Creative Properties Group, under the guidance of Smart Real Estate Coach. She is 30 years old and has a family she adores – her mom, dad and brother have been her strength and courage. She is a certified yoga instructor, has a recently adopted pup named Daphne, and has a hunger for travel and education. It has been a dream to own and operate her own real estate investing business and is so excited for what the future holds.

About Jeff Redmond:

Jeff Redmond is from middle America and is proud to work at Walmart. Early on, he became disillusioned and spent his young adulthood discovering how to take that energy and create something productive from it. Now approaching age 40, the real estate arena has presented itself and only now has Jeff applied his accumulated knowledge toward a passion that was always dormant. This is the culmination of training, passion, and focus, and Jeff is here to punch through and make a statement in the real estate investing space. He is counting the days before he can quit his union job and truly go all in!
