“I’ve always been an entrepreneur,” says Todd. Her first venture was an award-winning lifestyle magazine for south Florida. When she realized that many people she was interviewing for her magazine had built their wealth in real estate, she decided to have a go at it herself. “I’m an investor first and a salesperson second,” says Todd, who owns five properties. She did $20.1 million in sales in 2004, focusing on second-home buyers and investors. Todd plans to add brokerage services to her real estate marketing company, My House Real Estate Inc. (myhouseRE.com), for which she’ll be the broker-owner. She also lectures on pre-construction and condo conversions.
You’re fired: Todd hoped she’d never hear those two words as a contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice” last season. “I went on the show to push my limits and see what I’m made of,” she says. At press time, she was one of the final two candidates.
Radio star: Todd co-hosts a talk show about real estate investing with callers and guests on WBZT 1230 AM (also streamed live on the Web). The show targets south Florida and Las Vegas currently, but is working toward national syndication.
Todd was hired by Donald Trump as his new apprentice in the reality TV show, "The Apprentice 3." To learn more about her new job, read this online feature.
