About Chris Egan
I started in real estate in 2007 after graduating from college. I joined my father in the business; he has been a licensed agent and investor since 1980. I love helping other investors achieve their goals through real estate investing. I personally buy single family rentals mostly in the midtown Omaha area. I try to by one new rental every couple of years. As an agent I work with a number of investors. Most of them subscribe to the buy and hold philosophy buying residential single-families and some multi-families. I also work with some clients who buy to flip.

About Moira Bickford
I started my career in real estate career 2019 after graduating from Dana college. In college I was on the soccer team, a resident assistant, and had a on campus job and was on a high academic scholarship. I joined my family in business. I am a go getter and like to search off market and send out letters for my investors clients to try to get them a head of the competition. I personally own one single family rental and plan to invest in more in the future. I have been involved in property management, facility management, and leasing for over a decade. I am very determined to help investors buy, manage, flip, buy, and sell in the Omaha area.
About Joe Hoagland
I started in real estate in 2018. I joined my father-in law, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law in the business. I own a few rentals in the Omaha area, and hope to acquire more in the future.
The Midwest and more specifically Omaha, Nebraska is a fabulous market to invest in real estate. Here in Omaha our existing home median price is $260,000. The median rent for a single family home is $1,398. Our unemployment rate in Omaha is very low at 2.2%. We have a very diverse economy with many different industries, making Omaha a very attractive market to invest in. Omaha grew by 19% according to the last census over the last 10 years. Rental rates in Omaha have increased by 8.86% per year since 1980.
Investment Price Points
In Omaha our entry price point for most properties is about $175,000. For a property in that price range. The vast majority of investors I work with including myself will buy single family homes between $75,000-$300,000. These properties will typically rent between $1,000-$1,600 a month. These properties seem to be the most popular because you are buying a quality property and also maximizing your rental return. Over $300,000 the rents do not seem to keep pace with price of the property unless they are multi-family properties.
