I am not saying gig life is bad or good. However, there’s another way to work a flexible schedule and earn much more.
Because of real estate, my life changed dramatically for the better, and I am so happy that I took action and began my career as soon as I learned how easy it is to get started. I went to real estate school for two weeks, studied for another two weeks, submitted my application, became licensed, and within four weeks, I had ten listings and a fat check. How did I do it? Well, I had the intention to do it, which is essential. It was a fire in my belly to become successful. I wrote a book about it called Burning Desire.

Season 2 of Deb’s Spence Housing Warrior dives full speed ahead with discussing the new Pa—Public Education Funding Lawsuit Decision and how it intersects with real estate.
“Let’s say hypothetically, your home is undervalued, your children receive less than a stellar education, and you pay the highest in school taxes.
With this financial, emotional, and educational distress-how can you keep your head above water? How can you build a life for your family? How can you create generational wealth? Furthermore, less talk about financial, emotional, and educational stress results. What does that look like in your community?”
Housing should be available and attainable for all. In Episode 2 of Season 2, I discuss being a part of the solution. First, I created a Fierce Housing Center. Second, I’m a housing advocate and warrior for all my clients and potential clients. And lastly, I am working on a transitional or permanent housing solution for those on the margins who need a helping hand. I call it a Shipping Container Community. If you are interested in helping, please send me an email, text, or social media me (LOL)

Hey, all. Deb Spence here, and welcome to Deb Spence’s Housing Warrior. Today I want to talk about reducing crime in Philadelphia by providing renovated homes to first-time homebuyers. Today, we will discuss the link between affordable housing and crime rates and how I address this issue.
Studies have shown a direct link between affordable housing and crime rates. People with access to safe and affordable housing are less likely to engage in criminal activity. This is because they are more likely to feel a sense of stability and security, which can reduce stress and anxiety. In addition, when people have a stake in their community, they are more likely to take an active role in keeping it safe.
As a Housing Warrior, my organization, Fierce Realty Corp, has been tasked with my substantial real estate developer the job of helping first-time home buyers into renovated homes in up-and-coming and friendly neighborhoods. By doing this, the organization can provide affordable housing to people who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Plus, this can help reduce crime rates in these areas by giving people stability and security.
Also, when homes are renovated, it can make the area more attractive to other homebuyers, leading to more investment. This can create a cycle of improvement, where the neighborhood becomes more desirable, and more people are willing to invest in it.
By providing affordable housing to first-time homebuyers, I, via my brokerage Fierce Realty am also helping to address issues of gentrification. When neighborhoods become more desirable, there is often pressure to raise property values, which can lead to the displacement of long-time residents. Affordable housing can help people stay in their communities and benefit from the improvements.
