Discover Real Wealth Investor Academy

For the past ten years, Real Wealth Network has been helping to simplify the world of real estate investing.  We’ve helped our members understand how to create passive income, and we’ve helped them get the right price, on the best investment properties, in the strongest markets.

Now, we’re happy and excited to bring you the Real Wealth Investor Academy. These are classes taught by real-world industry experts and successful investors who focus on keeping it simple while teaching what you really need to know.

The video lessons are all offered online, in bite-size, digestible modules. And since all the classes are recorded, you can go at your own pace and watch them again at anytime.

ALL income from our Academy is donated 100% to the charities we love via the Real Wealth Foundation. Learn more about this exciting change on Kathy’s blog post.
