Today on the BiggerPockets Podcast we are excited to sit down with Marcia Maynard, a hands-on landlord who hails from Vancouver, Washington.
Marcia got her start in real estate by marrying into “the family business” that already had an existing portfolio, but continued on the tradition to help fund her own future retirement. On today’s show, she goes into detail on how you can invest part-time for retirement while making a HUGE impact on the community in the process!
