Erica osborn - Virginia

I am a gal that is all about Real Estate. I am a proud military spouse and I have been in and around real estate for the last 15 years with 12 of them being in accounting and financial analyst roles in the corporate world for commercial developers, retail and office syndicators, pm companies and brokerages as my husband's duty station has taken us around the US. Currently, I am a licensed real estate agent in VA. My clients are 90% investors, like me, building their portfolios and deploying that hard earned cash to put it to work for them. I have been investing since 2011 and have experience in the buy & hold, rehab & sell (flip), vacation rental and BRRRR strategies with a special place in my heart for deep value add real estate.

bobby njoo - Virginia

Hi, my name is Bobby. Being active duty in the Navy has brought me to the area and eventually the discovery of my passion in real estate investing. The first step of my journey was to learn and network. One of the first networking events that I attended was held by the Think Team. I made great connections that led me to where I am today. After a few years and doors later, I wanted to give back by using my real estate experience and skills to help others in their real estate journey. I couldn't think of a better way than being an agent and joining the team that started it all!

His third daughter Finley was welcomed into the world during this deployment on July 14th 2020. Also, during this deployment Sean purchased and managed a rehab on a 6-unit apartment complex.
