Whitney Nicely is a real estate investor who does most of her deals in Tennessee and Georgia. Her business runs on lease options, apartment complexes, and “random chunks of land.” Whitney said being a real estate investor runs in her veins as she drew inspiration from her very own mother. As a child, her mom always asked her to get the money from the mailbox so she thought real life was just like that.

She enlisted in lease options school in her 20’s and learned how to buy properties with no money and no credit. She later started her business with her brother, and obtaining 19 properties under their belt within three years.

Today, Whitney talks about her first deal, why she’s not a fix and flip dealer, why she doesn’t believe in credit score, and her tips for people who want to get into the industry.
