About Holly Welles

Holly Welles is a freelance writer and top home improvement blogger. She focuses on real estate market trends, home improvement and personal finance, creating resources for anyone looking to improve their housing know-how.

Holly grew up in Upstate NY with a bunch of siblings and one hassled single mom. Years of shoveling lake effect snow, figuring out quick DIY fixes at home and being the responsible older sister has taught her that resourcefulness is key.

Since then, she’s graduated with a dual BA in economics and English literature, making this blog the perfect outlet for her interests and studies. Each day, she digs into housing data, writes up fun articles and helps other young people figure out what on earth they’re doing.

You might have seen Holly’s real estate and home improvement work around the web, including Homes.com, Apartment Guide, The Financial Diet, Today’s Homeowner and more.
