Our Founder:

Hi, I’m Erika Finn, the creator of Stacking Acorns. I am a stay-at-home mom turned full-time real estate investor and blogger. I homeschool my five children, and have grown my rental portfolio to over 300 units in just over two years!

My interest in real estate started with a simple duplex I bought for $55k, and it cash-flowed from day one. I began to scale and buy apartment complexes, which has allowed me to grow my portfolio into a wealth machine.

I also have experience investing in tax liens, tax deeds, short term rentals (aka Airbnb) and Section 8 (HUD) properties. I have learned the ins and outs of all kinds of real estate, and want to share my knowledge to help you grow your own financial wealth.

I am a licensed attorney. I graduated from law school at University of California – Berkeley in 2006, and have been interested in real estate law since the start of my legal career.

I also hold an active real estate license, which I use to find off-market properties and save on commissions!

In addition to real estate investing, I have diversified into other “passive income” streams, including a portfolio of seven affiliate blogs and a library of 65 published books.

This blog, Stacking Acorns, is my experiment with being transparent about how I’ve grown my wealth. I first started it as a general personal finance site, but quickly realized that I wanted to share my knowledge with women like myself – women in mid-life who have spent the last decade or two raising children, putting off their own dreams and ambitions for the benefit of their families.

I am a mid-40s woman who wants to do big things with my life! What about you?
