When most people contemplate retirement, they think about their 401(k)s or similar investment vehicles. They may also consider real estate–but not in the ways that it can be most effective in retirement.

In this episode of Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing, Jonathan speaks to Stephanie Walter, founder and CEO of Erbe Wealth. You’ll hear how Stephanie shifted from investing solely in residential real estate to syndications, ultimately leading her to sell her insurance business and create a full-time real estate investing career. She explains some of the greatest money myths, where she’s most interested in investing today, and her thoughts on the future of commercial redevelopment.

Stephanie Walter is a wealth strategist, speaker, and syndicator who “retired” in 2021 when she sold her insurance business of 16 years in 2021. She teaches hardworking professionals to redefine what wealth and investing can look like. Stephanie believes her strategy for achieving wealth is available to anyone willing to change their mindset.
