Due to my career, I'm a part time buy, fix and hold real estate investor. Since 1998, I've been "Hacking My Housing" while building my passive income stream one property at a time.
I specialized in creative finance, driving for dollars and finding diamonds in the rough. My best deals never hit the market.
My philosophy is buy, rehab, rent, refinance and repeat until rich. The "Brrrr" strategy.
I'm not a flipper and believe true wealth is built by investing and maintaining nice properties in order to attract nice tenants. Frankly, if you take care of your tenants, they take care of you.
In 2014, I was interviewed for the Bigger Pockets Podcast Show 86.
In 2015 I was featured in Forbes by Elaine Pofeldt. She profiles solo entrepreneurs who have hit the one million in revenue mark. Here's the title of the article:
"This Entrepreneur Built A Million-Dollar Business On Small Investments In Local Real Estate"
In 2016 I was interviewed for the Lifetime Cash Flow Through Real Estate Podcast show 14.
I enjoy hanging with my two amazing daughters, rock climbing, skateboarding on my Big Kahuna long board and paddle boarding on Lake Superior.
I live in a small college town rated "Best town in America" by Outside magazine in 2014.
