The owner of Prime Coats LLC, Nicole Persson, has been in the painting business since 1999, and has supervised the painting of several hundred homes in the Seattle area, while managing to maintain a 98% customer satisfaction rating. Nicole has helped many of her clients to flip homes as well as flipping a few herself. Being in the trades and working with other contractors and many home owners has put her in a key position to see a properties potential. Her first home purchase, bought at the height of the market, is now a cash flow positive rental in Edmonds, and her second was a straight flip on Mercer Island. Having worked on both sides, as the painting contractor and the owner, has given her a unique and practical knowledge on the topic.
