Biography of Stacy Rossetti:

Real Estate Investing – My Journey, My Career, My Life

As a real estate investing expert and coach, I have built my name on the results I have created – for myself and my students.

Investing in real estate has changed my life, opening doors for my family and me and affording me an outlet for all my creative and entrepreneurial energy. From scaling up a renovation company in Atlanta with hundreds of transactions to learning to invest passively through creative financing deals and storage facilities, I have not only overcome many trials and tribulations but systematized and organized my days so that I can run several successful businesses.

I strive to stay ahead of the curve by building on my knowledge and making wise decisions. Of course, this did not happen overnight, but my early days in real estate were slow, exhausting, and challenging. Little by little, I learned what worked and was needed to achieve consistent results. Because I taught myself all this learning through experience and mentors, the process was gradual.

Today, I own and operate REI USA, StorageNerds, and the Self-Storage Fund of America.

In addition to investing in real estate myself, I have since discovered another passion in my life – coaching and empowering others. Whenever I see that I have guided someone toward a breakthrough or helped them to transform themselves professionally, I feel deep fulfillment, confident that I am on the right path, and reinvigorated to go out and do even more.

REI USA is an online education, and networking platform that is exactly the tool I would have wanted when I was getting my start, something aspiring and established investors can turn to, a means to cut your learning curve dramatically.

My passion is to help beginner investors learn to invest in real estate, and my mission is Affordable Financial Literacy. REI USA embodies this mission by engaging those that genuinely want to learn to invest in real estate but don’t want to go broke doing it.

Together my husband Pete and I currently own and operate 12 storage facilities throughout Georgia and Florida. Investing in self-storage is our passion and how we have decided to build wealth. It is the best-kept secret in the investing world, and I don’t know why more are not investing in it.

As a coach and teacher, I specialize in helping my students navigate real estate investing, rehabbing, and storage facilities. These are all complex, involved topics, but I have honed my ability to communicate the intricacies – and found ways to demystify them efficiently. Seeing the light go off in my students’ eyes, I know the magic is happening. In every one I teach, I recognize myself – wide-eyed, hopeful, firmly believing in all the opportunities that real estate investing can present. For years, I have connected with my students through workshops, offering a glimpse into the thought processes and techniques that have led to my success.

In order to share my knowledge with as large an audience as possible, I have expanded beyond person-to-person coaching, developing a Self-Storage Investing mastermind and group coaching mentorship called StorageNerds. This mastermind draws on my years of experience in real estate and self-storage investing and break down my ideas and strategies in a way that even beginners can digest.

Over the last five years, my husband and I have perfected how we find, fund, and run our storage facilities so we can be anywhere in the world. Our facilities are truly passive income, and we love sharing our tips and tricks on how we manage them through our StorageNerds mastermind.

For those who want just to invest their money in self-storage and reap the benefits, we started the Self-Storage Fund of America. In our first six months, we’ve raised over $1 million and have closed on our first facility. 

Renovating my first home in 2012, I knew I had stumbled upon something big – a calling, a vocation, a passion. There was no doubt in my mind that I would stick with real estate and give it everything I had. Collaborating with my husband has been a bonus, and I am grateful daily for the career he and I have created together.
