A NOTE FROM THE DESIGNER (MICHELE VAN DER VEEN):
Growing up assisting my father rebuilding and investing in strip malls, it was clear at an early age that real estate investing was a natural path for me to take. I received a formal education in design from the Interior Designers Institute of Newport Beach, California, and have more than 30 years of experience in commercial real estate development, custom home building, and flipping houses.
