With the events of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has become increasingly online, off-site, virtual, and remote. While real estate investing might be something that you may not believe can be done remotely, today’s guest is proving that it can! Alicia Jarrett is an international real estate investor, educator, and entrepreneur who is based in Australia. Four years ago, she and her partner Matthew began conducting deals in the USA.

Today, Alicia provides expert insight into how to successfully start a real estate business from halfway around the world. Hear about the prices, taxes, and laws that led her and her partner to invest in the USA, what barriers they had to overcome, how they manage the time zone difference, and how to find the right realtor remotely. Later we discuss the role of marketing in real estate investing. Alicia explains how they use direct mail marketing to land new deals, the importance of considering the demographics of sellers when trying to get off-market leads, and what real estate investing tool they could not do without.
