Marc got the real estate bug in his early twenties, and it’s never left. He has multi-faceted experience dealing with real estate investment companies. Marc’s is what you can call a real estate jack of all trades. He’s been an investor, landlord, property manager and builder in the Ottawa area since 1996 when he bought his first income property. He has since acquired a dozen income generating properties. He’s brokered property purchases for friends. He’s a partner in a commercial building and has built several new homes. His most recent build was featured in the May 2012 edition of Ottawa Magazine http://www.ottawamagazine.com/homes-gardens/2012/05/11/a-house-we-love-a-cliff-side-dwelling-in-chinatown-and-on-lebreton-flats/
Marc manages the research and acquisition activities for Simple Acquisitions, LP. He creates strategic alliances with financial institutions, property managers, brokers, attorneys, contractors, developers, and real estate investment companies on a daily basis. Marc is also the liaison between the company and its private lenders.
Marc has an innate ability to see the end result when nobody else can. He’s known for bringing all the necessary resources together to achieve his goals.
He loves to talk to aspiring investors and provide education and guidance where he can. He even sent a laptop to an unemployed man that he met at a gas Station in North Carolina who was down on his luck, in the hopes that it would be a tool that could help him learn about way to make a living.
Amanda has a Honors degree from the University of Ottawa. She has 24 years of combined experience in customer service, finance, procurement and contracting. In addition to being a real estate investor she is a Procurement & Finance Manager and manages multi-million dollar budgets. Amanda is a late bloomer in the real estate investing world compared to her partner Marc. But she is living proof that it is never too late to build wealth with real estate. She has invested in Canadian real estate since 2008 and has been involved with U.S. real estate investment companies since 2012.
Amanda is a stickler for details, processes, and all things organizational. She’s affectionately known as the “neat freak”. She manages the day to day operations of the company and oversees all financial and contractual requirements. Amanda has her feet firmly on the ground managing the business. This lets Marc do what he does best; find those amazing and creative deals that we can all invest in and share the returns.
