Kemi Egan

Founder of Freedom Homes & Freedom Academies. Creating wealth via ethical, sustainable + profitable Property Investment


You can hear this fascinating interview right here

Play the podcast


A few years ago Kemi was homeless and has now been able to go on and create a substantial portfolio while supporting others who also want to change their lives while making a difference in the world.

Freedom Academies was founded out of an increasing international demand from people getting in touch that want to invest in property but don’t know how or want to be strategic about it.

Traditionally property investing has been by shiny guys trying to upsell £30k courses full of strategies that are either illegal now or unethical. However because Kemi was homeless when she started investing she and her business partner Laura West are really passionate about making this life changing opportunity info affordable and accessible and sharing strategies that allow you to make a difference and be proud.  Not just by making cash at others expense and so have created an online community and training programs that people can watch in their own time and implement as they go.
