Katie Carrell

Founding Partner, Agent, Rehab Specialist

"#womenwhoREHAB #readitagain"

Katie began by working alongside her husband of 10 years, Thomas, when he founded The Ohana Investment Group in 2018 renovating and rehabilitating investment properties. Katie takes after her father, as a welder, inventor and designer he taught her there isn't a problem you can't create a solution to. This upbringing instilled a drive and determination strongly displayed through her work ethic to this day.

Katie's previous career was as a Certified Labor Doula and Childbirth Educator. After the birth of their first of two beautiful children, Katie's passion for family values and the respect for a woman's journey into motherhood pushed her into an intimate and incredibly rewarding career that was made much more difficult to practice during the pandemic. After 5 years in the birth world with her side gig in real estate she finally took the plunge!

Katie is our newest agent but don't let that fool you. The last 4 years she has assisted in procuring and purchasing her personal investment properties, managing and working hands-on in her investments rehabs and flips as well as managing those properties as rentals. With her real estate license there's nothing she can't do!

Katie is eager to put her drive, personality and core values to work for you and your family. Whether you are ready to sell, buy, invest or need someone to manage your rental properties, she's your first call!
