Creating thriving communities is Michael Barnhart and Suzy Sevier’s goal. They do this by adding value to their investments that will benefit the people who live in them in a multitude of ways, and their plan for the future is to build schools in third-world countries. In today’s episode, Suzy and Michael, who do everything together, explain how the COVID-19 catalyzed their entry into the world of real estate, and how the changes that have come about as a result of the pandemic have given them the freedom to work from anywhere. Currently, they are situated in Cambridge, but the “Road To 100 Countries” hashtag that they created for their relationship makes clear their intentions to travel far and wide.
