Erik is a graduate from the Richard Ivey School of Business. After working for only one year he decided that wasn’t the life for him. So instead, Erik and his brother Kevin both quit their day jobs almost a decade ago to start a real estate investment company and have been working as full time real estate investors ever since.
Over this time they have built a portfolio of 64 units across Ontario. Not only that but they have also built a comprehensive educational system for real estate investing that has absolutely everything you need as an investor…all the information, access to all of the resources they have ever built, an industry leading property analyzer, and even a section dedicated to Student Rentals.
Erik also became a licensed mortgage agent in order to provide clients and investors a passive way to help invest their registered money (RSP, TFSA, LIRA, LIF, RIF etc.) into real estate…earning an 8% Fixed Annual Rate of Return in some of the most exciting development projects in Canada. He is a wealth of knowledge and has a ton of experience, some of which he will be sharing with you during this podcast.
Erik is the co-owner of DREI (Direct Real Estate Investors) a Real Estate Investment Corporation that educates people on the benefits of real estate as an investment opportunity and to help them add Real Estate to their portfolios in the safest most secure way possible.
