Do you consider yourself a socially conscious consumer? What comes to mind when you think of brands like Toms or Whole Foods? They're profitable, right? Why do you think so? It's branding. They've identified a purpose, created a brand and have chosen to operate in a way that puts the values of their consumers and investors above their own profits, to keep their customers and investors loyal.
So why is it different when it comes to real estate?
Beverly is excited to share with you the concept of social impact development, which she stumbled upon after not feeling connected with the work she was doing as a wholesaler, real estate agent and flipper. She'll share her insights on what exactly it is and how she applies principles from the book Conscious Capitalism into her business. She'll share resources, who are the local players, what are some social impact development projects across the country, how she identified a niche within social impact development and her plans going forward.

Beverly began her career in real estate in 2007, when she focused her business on the acquisition of distressed residential properties throughout the Philadelphia area. Since then, she has acquired and rented or sold over $4 million in properties at no more than 25% of their after repair value- using grass-roots marketing efforts and sourcing capital from investors through relationships that she’s established over the years.
A graduate of Drexel University, Beverly earned her degree in Finance and Marketing. She is an active member of ULI (Urban Land Institute) and serves on the committee to increase the representation of non-profits and minority owned businesses within the organization. She also serves as an active committee member for the UAC (Urban Affairs Coalition), working with other visionaries throughout the city to strategize and implement programs that improve the quality of life for residents throughout the Philadelphia area.
Beverly is passionate about sharing with others the financial freedom that investing in real estate offers, and has hosted workshops to help people understand the various ways they can build wealth through real estate.

Would love to attend but I'm flying in later that day so I'll miss this.
The spirit expressed in a Legacy Collective is something I share. My contribution to the dialog would be to raise awareness about Rental Co-Housing, a class of socially conscious (and more-profitable) legacy projects accessible to most BiggerPockets folks as potential landlords. An essay describing the benefits of rental co-housing tenancy and landlording, as well as practical details on how to go about doing it, is at a page I created at rentalcohousing.org. Please have a look, and also consider, Can we help each other?
Any comments or feedback are appreciated.
