How to Attract Investors & Raise Money for Multifamily Deals 

The Kitti Sisters

Palmy and her sister Nancy had successful careers in the fashion industry doing what they loved until their biggest client shut down and their world came crashing down. It was then that they realized that they were trading time for money and relying on one income stream. They discovered apartment syndication and realized that it represented true financial independence. Now, they teach other women how they can have a piece of the apartment pie without having to become landlords, invest millions, or dive into high-risk investments. Fast forward to today, they now have $100+ million under management.
