Liz Faircloth grew up in a small town right outside of Flemington, New Jersey. She graduated from Rowan University with a degree in Psychology and went on to get her Masters’ Degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania. While attending the University of Pennsylvania, she took some classes at the Wharton School of Business and her interest in entrepreneurship and investing was born.
Liz began her investing career (along with her then fiancé) with the purchase of a duplex with a $30,000 loan outside of Philadelphia. After selling this duplex and moving to New Jersey, she co-founded the DeRosa Group in 2005 with her husband, Matt. The DeRosa Group, based in Trenton, NJ, is an owner of commercial and residential property with a mission to “transform lives through real estate." DeRosa has vast experience in bringing properties to their highest and best use, which includes repositioning single family homes, multi-family, apartment buildings, mixed-use, retail, and office space. The company controls close to 400 units of residential and commercial assets throughout the east coast.
While helping grow DeRosa’s portfolio, Liz had a career for many years where she worked with Fortune 500 companies to develop team and talent development programs. Liz has facilitated hundreds of workshops for universities, business conferences, and executive level trainings.
As chief advisor with DeRosa, she has helped build their portfolio to owning and managing apartment buildings, multifamily, mixed use buildings, and commercial buildings throughout the East Coast. Currently, Liz assists with both the strategic vision of the company and runs DeRosa’s marketing and communications. Liz is the proud founder of the DeRosa Gives initiative.
Liz is also the host of “The Real Estate InvestHER Show,” a podcast providing straight talk along with inspiration for existing and aspiring women investors to live both balanced and financially free lives.
Liz has been interviewed for many articles and top rated podcasts, including being a two time guest on the top rated BiggerPockets Podcast. On the personal side, Liz is an avid runner, has completed several triathlons and marathons, has two adorable children and is a New Yorks Mets fan.
