We had the good fortune of connecting with Ehize & Selina and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ehize & Selina, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Our primary goal for purchasing a property and entering into the Short Term Rental (STR) business together is/was to attain generational wealth. We have a common goal of ensuring that we leave land/property/real estate to our legacy. What began as general yet consistent conversations accelerated to us applying actions to our words. This business gives us the opportunity to earn passive income and teach our legacy the importance of home ownership and show them it is one of the most lucrative pathways to financial freedom. Additionally, the STR business allows us to create a clean and comfortable residential experience for guests traveling to Atlanta, Georgia.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
