Unlocking the Secrets of
Land Development

A Masterclass on
How to to Maximize Your Returns

Have you ever wanted to subdivide a lot, or build an ADU on your land?
Or perhaps you’ve wanted to build a home, an apartment building, or an entire subdivision. 
 
In this in-depth 12 week on-line program, consisting of weekly 90 minute live sessions, you will embark on a transformative journey into the fascinating world of real estate development.
 
Your coach, Kathy Fettke, started her journey in development in 2009 during the global financial crisis. A 40-year veteran developer contacted her and explained how foreclosed land and development projects could be purchased for as little as ten cents on the dollar.
 
Together, along with investors, they purchased 27 waterfront townhomes for $3M  in Portland, Oregon that were 70% complete. They finished them out, sold all units, and returned a 30% IRR to investors.
 
Since then, Kathy has worked with that same developer and a variety of other developers flipping land, entitling projects, building subdivisions and commercial buildings. Over the years, she has learned what works and what doesn’t when underwriting a project, a contractor or a market. All those lessons will be shared in this masterclass.
