Deanna Boyden is a real estate investor based in Calgary, Alberta. Alongside her husband Darcy, the two have built a real estate investing business over the years using various investment strategies including Buy and Hold, Flip to Yourself, Agreement for Sale, Rent To Own, Joint Ventures, land development, syndicate mortgages, private lending, purchases of short sales and courthouse auctions, on their way to creating a multi-faceted portfolio of active and passive investments across Canada and the US.
In this wide-ranging conversation, Deanna speaks both to her personal experiences as well as the experiences of Darcy and herself while building a portfolio together. Our conversation includes discussions on:
Building a real estate investment portfolio while working travel and time intensive full-time jobs. Why they chose real estate investments based on lifestyle desires and limitations. How her “why” has shifted over the years Embracing the hard work, overcoming self-doubt, and overcoming challenges while in growing a portfolio How having full-time jobs helped the Boyden’s start a real estate investing portfolio without having to partner with others Identifying what your “superpower” in real estate is… Thoughts on how to position yourself to leave a full-time job Breaking down the strategic planning process. Making macro and micro decisions in order to succeed at long-term plans Why the Boyden’s continue investing in real estate. Developing a coaching and mentoring niche around her experience. Why most people struggle making big decisions in their own lives Deanna’s parting words
