I first thought about becoming a real estate investor in 2006. While I was completing my Honours Bachelor of Commerce Degree at Lakehead University, I determined that the corporate 9-5 (or 8-6) was not for me. I wanted something that allowed me to live life on my terms, which included continuing my part time job as the coach of a local ski team. Upon graduation, I had two needs; to find a place to live and to find a job that would fit that lifestyle. A few months out of school, I purchased my first investment property. A vacant, run down 6-plex. I moved in, began renovations, and have never looked back.
Now as a full time real estate investor and father of two great kids, I continue to live life on my terms. I get to work with an amazing team and live a life of freedom and flexibility. My strategy includes fix and flips for immediate profits and long term rentals for wealth creation. I have recently begun to bring money partners on board in order to expand and create better economies of scale.
I am the founder of the Thunder Bay Real Estate Investment Club (tbreiclub.com) and your host at LifeStyle Housing Radio. I love having the opportunity to share my knowledge with others, as well as to continue to develop my own skills and expertise.
