Long before I became a real estate broker, I was raised on a family tobacco farm just outside of Scotland, Ontario. Every spring, summer and fall I would spend from dusk until dawn working and learning about farming and how to run a successful business. This setting instilled in me a strong work ethic and determination to work hard for what I want in life. When I was in my early twenties, my wife Niki and I had saved up enough money to acquire our first real estate purchase; our private 50 acre farm, in which we still reside.
After our first real estate purchase, I was infected with the “real estate bug”. Since that day, I have strived to learn and know everything I possibly can about real estate ownership and investment. I have read countless books and magazines on real estate, attended conferences and trade shows dedicated solely to real estate investment and networked constantly with other real estate investors and professionals for over a decade now. I continue to do this even today to enrich my breadth of knowledge and awareness of the industry. Niki and I, along with our daughter Liliana, continue to build a portfolio of multiple investment properties in Brantford and Brant County. I always have my “ear to the ground” for the newest and best real estate opportunities and I still enjoy working the land and producing crops every season, as a proud member of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture.
