Hi, We are Katie & Uriah!

Owners of The Inspiring Investment and real estate investors based out of the Raleigh, North Carolina. We have four kids together, attend The Summit Church, and casually dabble in Crossfit at our home gym. Our family enjoys the occasional weekend “glamping” trip to unwind and feel most at home in the North Carolina mountains.

About Uriah and Katie


Uriah is a real estate broker and project manager with a degree in Industrial Design. After working at a publicly traded real estate hedge fund for several years in acquisitions and construction management, he took the leap and branched out on his own. Uriah’s main roles at The Inspiring Investment include investor relations, overseeing our construction and sales teams, land and distressed property acquisitions.


It didn’t take long for Katie, a former ICU nurse, to fall for the business operations involved in REI. Analytical in nature and a writer at heart, she particularly loves marketing, setting up processes, and managing behind the scenes operations. Her main role involves business growth and development of The Inspiring Investment and its affiliates.

Our Vision:

Initially we grew deep roots in real estate through flipping houses, but the time came to branch into bigger things. We still buy houses, still provide channels for passive investors, but focused growth is in the following avenues:

  • property acquisitions for building and development projects
  • value-add acquisitions in diverse asset classes, including: multifamily, motel conversions, self-storage, and mobile home parks.
