Buying houses as an investment changes the lives of Thao and David Nguyen and the lives of those around them.

In just under five years of serious investing, they’ve acquired more than 50 single-family homes as investors, mostly in Oklahoma City, as well as duplexes, other small multi-family homes, and RV parks — about 180 “doors” in all. put it

“David worked as a chemist at Tinker AFB for 17 years, and I have worked as a pharmacist at Walgreens for 12 years,” Thao said in an email interview. “Before 2018, we happened to buy a few rental properties.”

Soon they could afford to invest full-time. David, 43, quit his job in 2019 and Thao, 39, quit hers late last year.

Thao and David Nguyen are local real estate investors in Oklahoma City.

“In 2018, after attending some seminars, reading some books and meeting some successful real estate investors, our mindset changed and we learned that real estate investing is the most predictable way to achieve our financial freedom to live the lifestyle, we desire and build the wealth and legacy of our generation.”

The Nguyens got into real estate investing in the right way, said Angelena Harris, president of MLSOK Inc., the multiple listing service of the Oklahoma City Metro Association of Realtors.

It starts with making connections, said Harris, who is a co-founder and managing broker of Spearhead Realty.

“There are many things to consider when looking for a potential investment property, and the best way to learn the ins and outs is to meet with people who are successful property buyers,” Harris said.

The Nguyens are interested in income and appreciation, which means they buy some houses, make improvements and sell them using numerous limited liability companies.
