I'm finally posing to the site, as I've been a member stalking the forum for years. I appreciate all the input because I havent been contributing myself. I guess it's a good time to start
I'm Brook Wishart, from northern Alberta, Canada. I'm become enamoured with real estate over the passed few years. I believe it to be an important factor in achieving wealth. I've completed a couple deals but currently only own one duplex. Cash flowing $880 a month. Focused on increasing my knowledge and skill in multifamly and commercial development.
Currently I am on the final stages of planning a multifamily development on a 0.89 acre lot in the same town. I purchased the lot cash with the intention of building 20+ units.
I've worked in oil and gas and construction most of my life. Made some good early investments in O&G sector, so I'm looking to redeploy and become financially free in the next 5 years. Would love to spend more time with the family, 4-wheeling in my RZR, fishing or hunting. Heavy interest into weight lifting and most things athletic.
Hope to learn alot more and help contribute in the future!
Hi Brook and about darn time you posted ;) Your story sounds all to familiar to mine, coming from the o&g sector as well. With that being said, I'm pretty over it as well thus the heavy investment of time and money in real estate. I hear other investors who are killing it with short term rentals in your area there, which I can see why. It's beautiful!
I wish I could help you more with your commercial endeavor but that is a realm I am also just looking into and figuring out my place. I would love to hear more about your plans for this multifamily property though as I know that can be a great area to invest. 2 units to 20+ units is a hefty jump but I like it, go big or go home right?
Look forward to hearing more about this!
