Real Estate Experience
The Staples have acquired over 105+ Multifamily Apartment Complexes that represent over 22,400 units/doors. They oversee the management and financial performance of assets valued in excess of $408+ million.
Kerry and Bonnie quickly realized another great benefit created by apartment investing is the positive impact that they can have on the lives of so many others. Not only can they help elevate the residents experience, but they also strive to provide them with a place they are proud to call home. They are also passionate about empowering the staff to feel involved in helping to make a difference to the lives of the families they are serving.
Kerry and Bonnie make sure every property has a place for residence to connect as a community such as a playground, pool, dog park, picnic areas, or a clubhouse. Kerry and Bonnie also enlist Apartment Life for many of their properties, to help with resident & staff care.
Their vision all started with their simple motto:
"Improving Communities and Connecting Families"
Sumrok Students/ Coaches
The Staples joined Brad's Apartment Investing Mastery group as personal students in 2014. Attending this event gave Bonnie the tools and educational knowledge that enabled her to retire only 18 months later.
Shortly after, Brad asked Kerry and Bonnie to become part of his Coaching Team. Kerry and Bonnie feel very honored and blessed to not only be able to achieve personal financial freedom, but they are able to help others achieve financial freedom through apartment investing as well.
