About Brady McDonald

Brady and Kristy Allison McDonald started investing in real estate in 2015 while working full-time jobs. Brady had a comfy 6 figure job as a Utility Arborist Instructor, and Kristy was a Real Estate Appraiser, but they knew they wanted more. They wanted the wealth and freedom to live their ideal lifestyle so they could do what they want, with who they want and where they want! After learning about the opportunity real estate investing could provide, they quickly took action and started BK Real Estate Investing.

They started acquiring property and implementing the BRRR strategy, where they would buy single-family homes and renovate them into legal duplexes. Once complete, they would refinance them to their new and high value, which would then return the initial purchase capital and the renovation funds. As you will read shortly- This is a version of the exact same strategy they utilize for their State-Of-The-Art Self Storage Facility Developments.

Once they proved the strategy, they quickly started to build their team and scale the business. From 2015-2019 they purchased well over 100 of these types of properties/projects while building their in-house construction and property management company to 20 staff! They were both able to quit their jobs in 2017 to focus on Real Estate Investing Full Time!
