A History of Success

John Carter started investing in real estate in Alberta in 2001. Starting with the purchase of single family homes, he quickly transitioned to the advantages of economies of scale and profitability that multi-family apartment buildings have to offer.  He purchased the first building, a 12 suite apartment, while still in his last year of university.

Since that time he has completed several other condo conversion projects, joint ventured investments, and worked with dozens of projects on a consulting basis. It is with this cumulative experience and demand from clients and fellow real estate investors that brought the extension of real estate investment coaching services. Many wanted to learn from this success.

Our strategy has proven successful time and again, see a few examples of some past projects below and contact us to find out if you are a fit to join in this proven success model.

 

“Dealing with John has been a profitable experience. His wealth of knowledge and expertise have helped me get into some lucrative projects, and I look forward to doing business with him in the future. John has a keen eye for real estate, and he’s always there to help, regardless of whether you have a deal on the go or not. I highly recommend John’s service to both the seasoned investor, and the first time investor buyer.”

Single Family Properties

We have invested directly in many single family projects as well in the past. Typical target was to add secondary basement suites, in good residential areas, targeting 2-3 bedrooms up and 2 bedroom down. Renovating to add value and increase rental rates. We have exited several of these properties and maintain some in our current portfolio.

Here are two examples:
