The Brendan Spaar Arrested develoment story

Since 2002 I've been involved in US real estate investing, taking an active roll in this field as a full time investor in 2004. Since 2008 I had the privilege to work with over 31 investors on their real estate transactions located in different parts of the USA as a VP at a Real Estate Investments Company. My Industrial Management Engineering degree & a background in High-Tech are coming handy in my investments and when working with investors. For years I've enjoyed learning and educating myself about finances and investing.
