The Kevin and Fred Show 

Sep 27, 2021

In today’s episode, we’re joined by mega-flipper, real estate investor, flipper, influential female leader, and entrepreneurial badass, Leka Devatha. After moving from India, Leka hit the ground running in real estate, and today she works on some of the most exciting 7-figure flips in the Seattle market. You don’t get big results like that without a huge intention and drive behind it. After being told that flipping isn’t a “woman’s game” and that she wouldn’t be able to succeed, Leka now inspires and encourages others to chase their real estate dreams. 

 

Leka is a real estate developer and broker based in Seattle, WA. She is the President of Rehabit Homes, Inc. a company focused on residential redevelopment. She has spearheaded hundreds of transactions, developing over $50M in real estate. Leka brings 8 years of experience in construction management and redesign.

 

Leka has been featured on numerous podcasts and other media including Business Insider and BiggerPockets. She is a chapter contributor in the recently published book 'The Only Woman in The Room'. In an effort to give back to the community, she hosts a popular virtual networking mixer, 'Real Estate At Work' featuring prominent speakers from the industry. Leka moved to the U.S. from India 14 years ago. Prior to investing in real estate, she worked at Nordstrom Corporate in merchandise strategy and financial planning.

 

Thousands of people have been told that they don’t belong in real estate investing because of who they are, how they look or where they come from. Leka’s story is a huge inspiration for anyone who has ever been underestimated, laughed off, rejected or told “no” when they try to go after their dreams.
