"Your Journey To Success Begins Today."
We are Odom Investments and Property Management. We are a local, community based business operating out of the greater Milwaukee area and serving South-eastern Wisconsin. Our objective is to make sense out of the complexities of the home ownership process by preparing our clients for what comes next. We fundamentally believe that the process is a journey – from genesis of thought through move in and personalization, and one must be equipped with the proper tools, knowledge and understanding to have success. Welcome to Odom Investments & Property Management, home of Odom Homes and a new way of thinking about your future home ownership. We welcome you to our page.
We value our clients, the work we do in the community, and the quality of the services we provide. The four tenents which our foundation is built upon are:
1. Live Our Mission. We are constantly reevaluating our goals and holding each other accountable to make sure we are successful in fulfilling our mission.
2. Build Relationships. It is our duty to connect with the clients we serve and the community.
3. Community. We believe in serving our community and building connections, while playing our role in being a part of the change.
4. Act With Integrity. We are honest and forthright with our clients, community, and within the company.
5. Service. We go above and beyond to connect with clients and our community. We meet clients where they are. We build relationships, while providing adequate services.
We strive to provide affordable housing, while changing communities, and bringing life back to homes.
Our vision is to make communities beautiful again and provide families with access to information and resources on their journey towards affordable housing. We see a well informed client as a well prepared client. We envision individual and communal accomplishments grounded in clear direction, financial literacy, personal responsibility, and the ability to be self-sustaining. Our team works to educate people from the community about financial preparedness, the home buying process and the home maintenance requirements. We are committed to building relationships and creating an awareness of “what’s possible” by connecting the community with its members, while making their experience positive, impactful, and full of memories that can be passed on generationally.
Erica Odom, MSW, APSW, Founder & CEO
I am Erica Odom, founder of Odom Investments & Property Management LLC. I am an advanced practice licensed social worker, with a Master’s degree in Social Work. I also have an Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice. I am a college instructor, a landlord, real estate investor, and a project manager. Here is my story. In 2006, I purchased my first property, a duplex home, for $125,000. This was before the recessed economy and the memorable housing market crash of 2008, where so many people lost not just their livelihood, but also defaulted on their mortgage loans and lost their homes and security. I was an inexperienced 19 year old young adult with a decent credit score and a consistent employment history. My mortgage broker approved me for a loan and I purchased my duplex, my first home. My loan was an 80/20 loan, which consisted of 80% of the loan being an ARM (Adjustable Rate Mortgage), and 20% of the loan being a balloon payment. Read more…
“See the vision; Create your path” - Erica Odom
I have always believed that everyone is capable of creating their path which leads them through their journey. A daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a social worker, a collage instructor, and a boss – just to name a few of the hats I am wearing along my journey. I aspire to inspire those around me to believe in their dreams, see their visions, create their paths, and take on their journey full force.
