Passing Wisdom to the Next Generation

Inessa Chernioglo, now 29, was barely out of high school when she used her savings to buy her first home. She soon bought another and rented out the first one. ”I learned at a young age that life doesn’t just happen,” says Chernioglo, who was 10 when her family immigrated to the United States to escape religious persecution in Ukraine. Eventually, her investment portfolio grew to include 180 acres of land subdivided into residential parcels and city lots for multifamily units. “Having this experience helps me encourage the younger generation to be wiser with their spending and shows them that home ownership is very attainable if done wisely.”
