Before negotiating and closing any real estate deal, Tiffany Barnes asks herself three questions:

  • Is this a good deal for me?

  • Is this a good deal for the other parties involved?

  • Would I make the same deal for my own grandmother?


As a successful real estate investor and consultant, a motivational speaker and the founder of a non-profit organization, Tiffany Barnes prides herself on always putting her ethics and morals first – in anything that she does.

Tiffany has worked tirelessly to solely support herself since a very young age.  She left an abusive home and was emancipated from her parents at only 15 years old. Throughout high school she worked three jobs to pay rent and support herself, all while excelling in school and ultimately receiving a full scholarship to the University of Utah.

While working as a waitress during college, Tiffany encountered a regular customer who was a real estate investor. She was intrigued by his business and asked him to train her in the industry. She was unable to afford the expensive formal training courses that he offered, so they struck up a deal for her to work in his office for free in her spare time, so she could learn the “ins and outs” of the real estate industry. Highly impressed with her work ethic, he ultimately guided her to making her first successful real estate deal.  As she started to become more and more successful in the business, Tiffany left college to pursue a full-time career in real estate.

Despite her difficult upbringing, Tiffany excelled in real estate, becoming a millionaire at just 28 years old. She has traveled the country for the last 15 years, training thousands of investors, sharing her expertise on lease options, creative funding and financing, fixer uppers and flips, as well as short term vacation rentals, including VRBO and Airbnb.

Tiffany overcame so many personal obstacles to get where she is today. She explains, “I still live below my means because I do not equate money with success.” 

Armed with over sixteen years of experience in real estate and her ongoing passion for helping women break into a very male-dominated industry, Tiffany founded Level Up Wealth Academy. She had traveled extensively for years and knew that she wanted to be closer to home, so she set up in Salt Lake City with the mission to be a comprehensive, BY investors FOR investors educational forum. Now, through the Academy, Tiffany hosts classes and workshops, sharing her business experiences and providing guidance to professionals in the real estate industry.  

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Tiffany is also the founder of a non-profit organization called SHARE (Sharing Hope for the Abused through Resilience and Empowerment) - a charity that helps and empowers sexually abused women and youth.
