Having Zero Excuses When It Comes to Real Estate Investing with KC and Jess Finnegan, USMA ‘01

Apr 11, 2022 | Real Estate Accelerator, USMA

“The Accelerator was a turning point for how serious we got with our real estate investments and our portfolio.”

– Jess Finnegan (USMA ‘01)

“One of the things that resonated with us is taking action. It was awesome to get the education and put it to use…the network that we have allowed us to go for it and invest. The network really kicked us off and introduced us to other aspects of the network that we’ve continued to use over the last several years, which allowed us to keep going.”

– KC Finnegan (USMA ‘01)
