Katy brings a facilitated networking approach (a “Mastermind” model) to INC, based on her background in education, experience in community mobilization, and adult brain-based learning.

Terry and his wife Lynda have been involved in some form of real estate for over twenty years, starting initially with a gut-rehab. In the mid-2000s, they moved into partnering with rehabbers on several projects, exclusively on the funding side. They now do limited hard-money lending, but invest primarily in real estate as holders of discounted mortgage notes. Their main focus for the last five years has been investing in notes on working-class properties in the upper Midwest.
Terry is a geologist by training. While working as a professional geologist in the 1970s and 80s, he specialized in due diligence on mid-sized to very large coal mines and mineral properties. Before becoming interested in real estate on a personal basis, he analyzed properties for purchase in practically every coal producing area in America, from the Appalachian Mountains to Alaska.
Cox serves as contributing editor and writes a regular column for "Scripophily," a publication of the International Bond and Share Society. He is also the author of four books: one on the history of Colorado gold mining and three on collectible stocks and bonds from North American railroads.

Laura is newer to the investment world but can't wait to become an expert. She bought her first single family home in Colorado in March 2018 where she did some house hacking and had her roommates pay most of her mortgage! In about six short months, she turned that house into a full rental and bought her second property right down the street. Laura wants to buy at least one rental a year for the next few years and also plans on doing her first fix and flip in 2020.
When she's not looking for her next investment project, Laura is a licensed Real Estate Agent in Colorado with Spaces Real Estate. She specifically loves working with investors because she is a numbers nerd. In her free time you can find Laura running, cooking, rock climbing, or poorly attempting headstands in yoga class.
