Hard Money Lender through the Lens of a Flipper


Listen in as Kelli Garrett shares all the moving parts of her Hard Money Lending program, Rehab Wallet.  Kelli goes into detail on what a hard money lender is looking for in an investor.  She also bases a large portion of her success on a habit she does every day, paving the way toward a Clear Vision.


Kelli Garrett began her professional career the day after graduating college with an entry level position at United Parcel Service.  She quickly moved up the ranks of the company, and within two years, was promoted to operations manager where she was in charge of an entire UPS center with over 200 employees.  With a knack for turning under-performing centers into highly-effective ones, Kelli was transferred to multiple facilities over her career at UPS.  Eventually, she was transferred to New Jersey and promoted to Division Manager where she was over multiple centers and 1000+ employees.  In the year 2000, with a longing to return back to South Carolina and a dream to become an entrepreneur, Kelli left UPS after 12 years of service.  

Since leaving corporate America, Kelli has owned and operated multiple successful businesses including a mortgage company, a house flipping business, a candy manufacturing company, an appraisal company, multiple convenience stores, a restaurant, a landscaping business, a courier company and many others.  

Kelli believes strongly in the notion of not having all of her eggs in one basket and therefore regards multiple streams of income as a must-have.  Her current businesses include a residential and commercial real estate rental portfolio and a hard money lending business called Rehab Wallet.  She also invests passively with multiple private equity firms and real estate syndications that have proven track records and strong operators.

Kelli’s work ethic, dedication to treating people fairly and her ability to recruit great talent has proven to bring much success to all of her business ventures over the past 30+ years.  

Kelli is also a 4 time All-American women’s college basketball player.  She is in the Hall of Fame at Easley High School as well as at The College of Charleston where her #14 jersey hangs in the rafters of the arena as women’s basketball all-time leading scorer.   

Kelli always has been and always will be “ALL ABOUT THE HUSTLE” and nobody does it better!
