By now, you’ve probably heard it many times—this isn’t an economy in which you can be successful in real estate. You will not make money selling properties, and you’re likely to go broke.
Yet despite all of these warnings that have become so common for potential real estate investors, one young Georgia Tech alumnus set out after college to make her own path in real estate and prove that with the right drive and attitude, anything is possible.
Dorsie Boddiford, Building Construction ’11, watched many of her fellow graduates head into nine-to-five jobs, but she knew that world wasn’t for her. She decided to take a different route, test her luck and make it on her own as a real estate investor. Over the past 10 months, Boddiford has purchased different foreclosed properties and renovated them to sell at a much higher value. She also partners with financial investors who provide the capital for the purchase and renovation process, while she purchases, renovates and manages the project.
