About Holly Welles

Holly Welles

Holly Welles

Real Estate Writer & Blogger

BA in Economics and English Literature

I’m a freelance writer and aspiring top home improvement blogger. My writing commonly focuses on real estate market trends, home improvement and personal finance, creating resources for anyone looking to improve their housing know-how.

I 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, I’ve graduated with a dual BA in economics and English literature, making this blog the perfect outlet for my interests and studies. I’m always excited to dig into housing or construction data, write up fun articles and help other young people figure out what on earth they’re doing.
