Laura Alamery was born and raised in beautiful Vicenza, Italy – only 40 miles from lovely Venice on the Adriatic Sea.
In 1985 she relocated to United States, moving to Honolulu in 1987 where she became a college student at Hawaii Pacific University; just 4 miles from the beaches of Waikiki.
She began developing a keen interest in real estate, so she started reading everything she could find – watching late night infomercials and buying courses by Dave Del Dotto, Robert Allen and Carlton Sheets.
That same year she became a real estate agent to help pay for her college studies. She joined Dolman and Associates in Honolulu, and right away she was inspired by some of the top agents on the island. She began following their lead and in her first year in the industry, She became a multi-million dollar producer!
In 1991, Laura graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and moved to Missouri that same year. Once on ‘the mainland,’ her real estate career really took off. She started to purchase properties with no money down using creative financing.
Laura continued her education by earning an MBA in Finance, still working part-time in real estate. Then she began a new career as an assistant controller in metal commodities, planning to climb the corporate ladder and keep real estate as a side business.
By the mid-1990s, Laura had already acquired a sizable portfolio (over 20 properties) consisting mostly of multi-families for rental income – and she was barely 30 years old! She was making more money in part-time real estate (less than 10 hours a week) than in her full-time corporate job, so in 1996 she decided to flip the switch and devote herself entirely to real estate. Once she was able to immerse herself full-time into real estate investing, her career skyrocketed.
In 1997, Laura began sharing her knowledge of real estate investing, proven strategies and creative financing techniques by hosting real estate seminars. And, given the widespread use of the Internet, she decided to also share her practical knowledge and experience as well via online mentoring and coaching. In 2010, she opened The REI Lab, Inc. – the culmination of various companies she had started and closed in the past.
With a love for laid back lifestyle and great weather (she really missed being near the water), Laura decided to relocate once more in May of 2015. This time the move was to Broward County, Florida; midpoint between Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
The Miami-Dade area is full of opportunities, and 59% of the real estate transactions there in 2016 were cash – more than twice the national average according to the National Association of Realtors!

Frank Rolfe has been an investor in mobile home parks for almost two decades, and has owned and operated hundreds of mobile home parks during that time. He is currently ranked, with his partner Dave Reynolds, as the 5th largest mobile home park owner in the U.S., with over 250 communities spread out over 25 states.
But it all began with one mobile home park, Glenhaven, in Dallas, Texas. “When I bought Glenhaven, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing or how a mobile home park worked. If I had, I would have never bought that park, as it saddled me with a master-metered gas and electric system – two of the biggest challenges a mobile home park owner can face – and a tenant base that was straight out of COPs. We had carnival workers, hookers, the absolute dregs of society. It even had a wrestling ring in the back.
A few years later, I had unbelievably turned that dump into a nice, quiet, family community, with a neighborhood feel and kids riding bicycles down the streets. Another five years later, the park was worth around $1 million more than I had paid for it.” With his success with Glenhaven, Frank continued to buy more mobile home parks, focusing on parks that had good locations, but were terribly managed.
Frank has always believed that mobile home parks are all about “affordable housing”. “Beginning with Glenhaven, I noticed that a mobile home park – when properly managed – offers a significantly better quality of life than a comparably priced apartment. Nobody likes to have neighbors banging on their walls and ceilings, or the lack of a yard or nearby parking – or just the lack of a neighborhood “feel”. It occurred to me that I could have my phone ringing off the hook if I could deliver an affordable detached dwelling with a yard that was safe, clean and respectable. That’s what I delivered at Glenhaven, and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since.”
Along the way, Frank began writing about the industry, and his books, coupled with those of his partner Dave Reynolds, evolved into a course and bootcamp on mobile home park investing that has become the leader in this niche of commercial real estate. “Dave and I have trained hundreds of investors on how to properly buy and operate a mobile home park, 100% based on our real-life experiences in the hundreds of parks we have owned and performed due diligence on. It gives us great satisfaction when people tell us about the mobile home park that they have purchased and how well it’s going. We really wished that someone had given us some direction when we began – it would have saved us a lot of money and stress. But I guess it all worked out pretty well in the end.”
Frank lives in a small town in Missouri with his wife and daughter. He is very active in community affairs, being a member of the Lions Club, the school board, and Chairman of the Landmarks Commission. He holds an A.B. in Economics from Stanford University.
