The Golden Rule Road to Prosperity


Building wealth that lasts for generations with modest single family houses.


But “that” doesn’t work here.  (Monroe County population 750,000)


How did “it” work for Pat who invested in Seneca County (population 35,000) for 35 years.



Pat has purchased at least 150 modest homes that she found appealing to the high working poor and the lower middle class families that find  it hard to purchase an affordable home for their loved ones.

Using a Rent-to-Own contract or holding a mortgage she maintains a kind of partnership relationship with her tenants that has proved to be very successful.

Pat is still actively buying and will share with you pictures and financial details of  10 houses she purchased last year.
