Welcome back to Small Axe Communities Podcast’s Season 2 of the Accountability series!
We’re starting 2022 with a bang as we start to follow the journey of 6 brand new multifamily investors. All of the guests on the accountability series podcast have one thing in common - They all began this journey without having any multifamily units under management. The objective is to track their journey throughout the course of a year to see exactly what it takes to become successful in this space. Nico meets with each participant once per quarter, to get updated on progress and to follow their journey!
Stick to the end of the show and learn more about Alex Tam, Nancy Huynh, and Christina Kovacs. Let’s dive in!

[41:21 – 01:05:16] Nancy Huynh: Don’t wait for courage to take action
Here’s a bit about her:
Nancy is a physician, eye surgeon, and impact real estate investor. As an ophthalmologist, she helps people see better so they can regain their identity, dignity, and vision for the future. Nancy started investing in real estate to create passive income, hoping to regain control of her time and stop trading time for money. She currently owns and operates a real estate investment portfolio in the Atlanta area.
She founded Clear Vision Investing to not only grow her own portfolio but also to help others realize the power of real estate investing. She is passionate about helping others, especially physicians, gain financial literacy and achieve financial security through real estate investing.
As an impact investor, Nancy believes that real estate investing can deliver attractive financial returns while also making a positive social impact. Part of the profits from her company is donated to give the gift of sight to someone in need. Using real estate, she’s on a mission to cure preventable blindness globally.
