Dave’s Local Pros You Can Trust
We’re so proud to have the endorsement of Dave Ramsey here at the Junell Group, as an Endorsed Local Provider.
I (Annette) have been a licensed real estate agent since 2000. Brett joined me in the business the year we got married in 2004. Brett is originally from Australia. He paid off his home in Australia when he was in his 20s.
When we got married, Brett and I bought a home together and started a business together. Debt? Yes, we had debt. At one point, we had over $60K in credit card debt as we were getting our business up and running.
We had our son at the end of 2007 which coincided with the Great Recession. 2008 was our worst year in real estate and we felt we were barely hanging on. Stress…we had it in spades.
We focused our energy in our real estate business, paid off our credit card debt, built up 3 emergency funds (one personal, one for our business and one for future investment properties). We take 20% from every paycheck and put it into our investment funds. Our son’s college fund is funded. Over time we purchased 5 investment properties.
Other than mortgages on some of the properties, we have no debt. We did this by our mid 40s. Now our focus is to continue building our retirement by investing. My mother always said, “The best gift you can give your children is to make sure you are financially sound in retirement.” In other words, not be a financial burden to your children. Brett and I plan to not only gift our son with not having to care for us, but also the gift of knowing how to build his own wealth.
We love sharing our knowledge with our clients and seeing their success. Their success brings us great joy.
I grew up in Elko, Nevada. We love Northern Nevada. We are a very active family, and mountain bike, road bike, dirt bike (do you notice a biking theme?), we camp, backpack, kayak, hike and snowboard.
We live in Reno within a 5-minute walk of my parents and a 7-minute walk to my sister’s family. We are a close-knit family and enjoy spending time together.
Brett and I started our real estate business in California. We picked up and moved to Reno at the end of 2015 to be closer to my family. Starting over after having built a business of 15 years is super scary. We did it and it was one of the best decisions we ever made.
We feel so fortunate and blessed.
