My name is Cam Cassidy, I am an investor focused realtor, facilitator for the Humber College real estate program, short & long term rental house provider and most importantly a husband and father to Austen and Brooks. I started attending Durham REI in December 2016, shortly after that I started buying properties in Durham Region and converting them to legal 2 units, also helping a number of investors do the same. November 2021, I started purchasing properties in Florida to Air BNB and have self managed them using a number of apps and systems that I am excited to share with you this evening!



From a stay-at-home mom of 10 years, to management consultant, to financially free as a real estate investor in 3 years, Brooke Shang went from having no income to a single income source, then to multiple streams of income. She continues to work in the corporate world, writing, mentoring and expanding her real estate portfolio while helping others create wealth through real estate.
