SV23: Upstate NY and Long-Distance Investing w/ Cindy Byler

Cindy Byler is a military Army spouse of 7 years to her high school sweetheart, Jonas. After their first change of duty station, she found herself needing to put her career as a music teacher on hold to move three times in three years.

Through much reflection and improvements in personal finances, Cindy realized the best “job security” for their military lifestyle was through passive income- ultimately utilizing real estate to achieve passive income.   As a buy and hold real estate investor, Cindy primarily invests in her hometown-area in Elmira, NY. She has been a landlord for 5 years. In the past 1.5 years, she has acquired a total of 4 properties and 11 doors. Every unit has gone through, or is going through, extensive remodeling.
