Within only a few years, Carolina and her husband Tom built a company that does dozens of deals annually with an average profit of $24,736 per deal. In the past two years alone, their businesses have generated revenues of more than one million dollars.

Carolina has been featured in several publications such as the Washington Examiner and the National Real Estate Investors Association’s Magazine. She was profiled in the book “Five Fearless Women in Real Estate”.

Carolina was born in Bogotá, Colombia and she moved to the US in 2001 after receiving a B.A. in Business from the University of La Sabana.

She started investing in real estate part-time in 2003. Her first deal paid out more than what she was being paid at her job. Therefore, within one year she was able to quit her job and live the life she dreamed of.

Carolina is an active part of theTraction Real Estate Mentors coaching team. She enjoys helping students do deals and seeing their lives change through real estate just like her life changed.

Carolina is the Vice President of the Traction Real Estate Investors Association, which serves creative real estate professionals in the Washington DC metro area. Traction REIA is the recipient of the National REIA “2010 Honors of Merit” and the “2009 Award of Excellence” for Best Real Estate Investor Association.

Carolina is the founder of Traction REIA’s Women Investor Network, a group created to provide women investors with current information, tools, resources and encouragement that will help them build a solid foundation in real estate investing.

Carolina became a US citizen in 2009 and that day she wrote:

“It was one of my dreams when I came to this country in 2001 to be sworn in as a citizen of the United States. Only in this country could a 32 year old Colombian-born woman with no experience in Real Estate and whose first language wasn’t English, become an independent and fabulously successful entrepreneur”.

Carolina and her husband Tom started their family with the birth of their first son Thomas Anthony, who was born shortly after Carolina went into labor at the Traction REIA January 2009 meeting!
