AboutDeidre Woollard

My passion for real estate writing started when I created the first estate of the Day column online but my interest in the business began long before that. Real estate investing is a family tradition and I hail from a long line of landlords, renovators, and contractors currently invested from Massachusetts to California. Through my work at Move Inc. and at some of the best real estate brokerages in Los Angeles, I've gained wisdom and understanding for real estate's core function in society. My mission is to share what I have learned with other people and continue to dive deeper into real estate crowdfunding which I believe is poised for a massive upswing.
