Our Founder/Owner – Tanya Hall

Please allow me to tell you a few things about me and my experience coming to, settling and thriving in the United States. I moved to Baltimore from Ukraine in 1998 with a 6-year-old child in my arms and $2000 in my pocket. At first, I struggled to find my place in this county and to obtain a good job. It was a difficult time for me. I was jumping from job to job. Finally, in 2004 I decided to try real estate for myself. And who would’ve thought that I would absolutely love it! It was the best career decision I ever made.

Since I always believed that knowledge is power, I continued my education by earning a Master’s Degree in Marketing from Johns Hopkins University (Carey Business School) and then in 2011 I received my Maryland Broker’s License. It was always my dream to work for myself, so in 2012 I opened my own Real Estate Brokerage – Bay View Realty.

After being a real estate agent for more than 7 years and seeing my husband’s mutual fund stock investments lose value with each passing year, I started to think about other ways to invest money. That is when I saw a unique opportunity in Baltimore City to invest in real estate. There were a lot of very inexpensive properties that needed minor repair. I decided to start with one house. I cashed our mutual funds, bought a house, repaired it and rented it out. I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Now we were getting over 10% a year! Much more than any mutual fund was returning at the time. My husband was very happy. So, I started to buy more and more houses. The great thing about this was that I no longer need to rely on a Wall Street stock broker.

A few years later my mother sold her apartment in Ukraine and moved to the USA. In Ukraine she used to work as a musical professor in the Conservatory for 35 years. As an older immigrant lady who does not speak English, it was very hard for her to find an extra income or a job. She needed something safe, stable and simple to invest her money. An income producing property was the best fit. She was so impressed with my success she decided to invest in rental property too and she wasn’t disappointed. Next, as a smart woman she took the income from the first property and invested it in another property! She now has two income producing rental properties and is saving for a third one.

Real Estate ownership is also beneficial to those working towards their Green Card and Citizenship. Property ownership in the United States has its rewards of a safe and secure place to put your money and taking an active part in the American Dream! My brother still lives in Eastern Europe, but because of the unstable government, banking system and uncertain economic climate has found piece of mind by investing in rental properties in Baltimore City, Maryland, USA.

Of course, I was doing all the property management for my mother. My brother also invested into the rental business. Now I had too many properties on my hands and no help with maintenance and paperwork. I needed help! That is when I decided to partner up with another investor creating a property Management Company. Now, I don’t have to worry about a renter calling me in the middle of the night or even worse, when I am on vacation complaining that his toilet is not working.

As an immigrant in this country, I know how hard it is for us to get anywhere in life and to save money for our children’s education and our retirement. I am so thankful that I don’t have to worry about my family’s income during these unstable times where so many people have lost their job. I feel that it is my mission in life to help as many people as I can and make Baltimore City a safer and better place. If you are a person who desires to take charge of their life and future, who does not trust the Stock Market, but needs a safe income producing investment to “PARK” your money and have it available at a later date for your children’s education, or other future needs, then investing in income producing real estate may be for you!
