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 have never hit the market.
My philosophy is buy, rehab, rent, and repeat until rich. The "Brrrr" strategy.
I'm definitely 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 will 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"
I enjoy hanging with my two amazing daughters, skateboarding on my Big Kahuna long board and paddle boarding on Lake Superior.
I live in a small college town that was rated "Best town in America" by Outside magazine in 2014.
