Ali Boone is the creator of Hipster Investments, lifestyle entrepreneur, business consultant, and real estate investor. Like many of us, she thought getting good grades in school and landing a dream job was the way to go about living a good life. That is until she went through all these steps, then realized there is more to life. She left her corporate 9-to-5 job as an Aerospace Engineer—despite the "dream job" status that came with it—to follow her passion for being her own boss and truly designing her lifestyle.

Ali’s real estate portfolio began with pre-construction investments in Nicaragua and then moved toward turnkey rental properties in several markets throughout the U.S. Seeing that this strategy was successful, she went on to create her company Hipster Investments, which focuses on turnkey rental properties and offers hands-on support for new investors and those going through the investing process.

Ali is the author of over 190 articles for BiggerPockets. She has been featured in FOX Business, The Motley Fool, and Personal Real Estate Investor magazine. She has sold over 200 copies of her Turnkey Rental Properties 101 eBook, and was awarded Top 100 Real Estate Investing Blogs & Websites. Her articles focus on teaching the fundamentals of successful rental property, investor psychology, and strategies to aid new investors in starting a real estate portfolio. As a keepsake, she still owns her first turnkey rental properties and is also a co-owner and landlord of local property in Venice Beach.
