INC Leadership

Investors Network of Colorado is led by Katy Fleming, Jim Edenfield and its valuable Advisory Team members.  The leadership develops and revises the group’s strategic plan each year based on member input, plans and leads meetings, develops social marketing tools and responds to members’ needs.   Additionally, member volunteers take on various roles based on their areas of interest to support INC’s strategic plan.

Members are encouraged to become involved!


Katy  has owned rentals since the mid-90’s, but officially began her real estate investment business Ideal Home Solutions in 2008.  Her early focus was on Colorado wholesales and flips.  She currently focuses on partnering in her native Columbus, OH market on holds, wholesales and turn-key rentals.

Katy brings a facilitated networking approach (a “Mastermind” model) to INC, based on her background in education, experience in community mobilization, and adult brain-based learning.  She holds a Masters degree in Medical Sociology and a Bachelors of Science in Education.  Prior to her investment career, Katy served as consultant to the Colorado Department of Education, Health Education Curriculum Coordinator for Boulder Valley School District, Boulder County AIDS Project’s Education Director, University of Colorado’s Sexual Health Program Coordinator, and Medical Sociology Instructor at C.U.
