The Path to $1,000,000: The Magic Pill (Part 2 of 4)

Kelly Edwards - Wednesday, March 25, 2015

As we glanced around the room it was apparent that we were by far two of the youngest in attendance.  Admittedly, we were anxious about finding the magic pill that would catapult our new real estate venture to the next level. There just had to be a magic pill, right?   The early 2000s were in full swing and we had recently closed on our first property (shown here) located in the sought after Cameron Village area of Raleigh, also known as Inside The Beltline. There was a chill in the air this December evening as Chris and I found ourselves surrounded by a room full of savvy investors.  Most of these folks made a living acquiring and renting properties - as real estate entrepreneurs - or were well on there way to doing so. This was our first visit to the Wake County Apartment Owners Association (WCAOA), an organization of private landlords, rental property owners, and investors that was founded in the early 1980s.   Read More

The Path to $1,000,000: Brick by Brick (Part 1 of 4)

Chris Edwards - Thursday, March 12, 2015

Our classmates could not believe what they had just heard!  Did our The Edwards Companies: Kelly Edwards Raleigh NC and Chris Edwards Raleigh NC with Jerry Edwards (Father)professor really say what I think he said?  As it turns out, that professor had just told us that it was not the responsibility of another to plan for our future, provide us a pension, a retirement, or even a job over the long term - it was ours!  Even more, he had the nerve to tell us that companies exist to make a profit, not just to provide jobs.  The year was 2000 and my twin brother, Kelly, and I had recently graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill and now found ourselves listening to an Organizational Behavior lecture in the MBA program at East Carolina University.    Read More
