About: My name is Jennifer Beadles, and after stumbling around from job to job in my late teens and early twenties, I found my calling: real estate. At 21 years old, I had bought my first house, and a real estate developer hired me. I found myself learning the ropes of building new construction, hiring subcontractors, dealing with red tag notices and grumpy neighbors who didn’t want new houses blocking their view. While I loved the variety and constant challenge of finding solutions to complex issues in the development world, I wanted to do and learn more. So, in 2009, I officially ditched my 9-to-5 job and become a real estate agent specializing in working with investors. Since my goal was to achieve financial freedom through real estate investing, I figured what better way to earn a living than to help others achieve what I was setting out to achieve. Turns out working in and on your passion does pay off. I’ve sold more than $120M+ in real estate while buying rentals and building up my own passive income streams. In 2017, I decided I needed to help more than just the investors in my local market, so I started this blog and launched my own local Seattle meetup group called Addicted to ROI. Then an amazing thing happened. I started to connect with other like-minded investors and agents across the country and created a new opportunity: connecting investors with these hard-working, investment-savvy agents who not only like working with investors but also they really know how to find deals.

There has, in fact, been a welter of independent, peer-reviewed research dating back to the 1950s on how best to invest, and the findings are remarkably consistent. Yet although this evidence is widely known in academic circles, the investing public remains largely oblivious to it. Even investment professionals and industry commentators are either unaware of it or for their own reasons choose to ignore it. This blog is an attempt to redress the balance. My goal is to inform investors about what the evidence says; to explain why we don’t hear more about it; and to help like-minded financial advisers to communicate the benefits of an evidence-based approach. If you’re hoping to get rich quick, this isn’t the blog for you. I’m not an investment professional; I’m a journalist. The content on this site is for informational purposes only and should not be seen as advice. But if you’re looking for the truth about investing or, like me, you’d like to see this hugely important industry change for the better, then welcome aboard. Let’s enjoy the journey.
