Understanding the CEO Mindset ft. Misty Flanagan E3 Podcast with Melissa Johnson

    • Entrepreneurship

Misty Flanagan is a full-time real estate investor and REI & Mindset Coach for women real estate investors.  She is Co-Founder and Head of Human Resources and Marketing of Elevated Development, LLC, Co-Founder of Guideway Investment Partners, LLC, Co-Founder of Level Up Remodeling, LLC, Co-Founder of HER Mindset Matters REI Group, and Co-Founder of the Women’s Real Estate Investor Alliance (WREIA).   All companies are Houston based but Misty has coached women all over the country.  Misty has experience in new construction, development, wholesaling, flips, rentals, and private money lending.

Misty is from a small town in Nebraska but always had dreams to leave her small town and live in the “big city”.  She moved from Nebraska to Los Angeles, CA one month after graduating high school and has never looked back.  Misty graduated from Cal-State Fullerton in 2009 with a degree in Communications, with an emphasis in Public Relations and Marketing.  She worked as a Human Resources Manager and Business Specialist for Kiewit, Fortune 500 General Contractor, before joining her boyfriend of 17+ years, Jason Hassenstab, in the journey to build their own company in Texas.  She began investing in real estate in 2016 in Austin, TX.  Her and Jason moved to Houston, TX in 2017 where both currently reside and are active in the residential and commercial space as well as a private lender.  Misty is a member of the Real Estate Investor Association (REIA) of Texas, Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA), and Commercial Real Estate Millennial Misses (CREMM).

Misty’s passions are helping people (sellers and other investors build their businesses) and building teams.  She is lucky enough to get to accomplish both while building her businesses in real estate and that is her true “Why?”.  The last 5 years have been the hardest 5 years of her life, but they have also been the most amazing 5 years of her life.  She has accomplished and overcome things she never thought she could ever do.  Misty came from very humble beginnings and had to work very hard for everything she wanted, even at a very young age, but this has prepared her for the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurship without her even knowing it until now.  She credits much of her journey and constant perseverance to her coaches and mentors and of course the incredible support and work ethic of her mother and stepfather and partner in life and business, Jason.

Although the last 5 years may feel like an eternity some days (lol), Misty knows this is only the beginning and can’t wait to see where these businesses in real estate and coaching take her next.  She welcomes anyone with the same drive and determination to join in her journey and has always said doing it alone is not possible and simply no fun, so she is beyond excited to share her story with anyone interested and would love to hear the stories of others to see how to unite and take over this crazy world of real estate together!
