(From 2004 –MoneySense Magazine) Arlen Dahlin is an Alberta based real estate investor and consultant.  He is the active partner in numerous real estate holding companies. 

Arlen began building his personal Real Estate portfolio in Edmonton, Alberta shortly after graduating from college with a major in Marketing (honors).  He knew he had found his passion after attending a real estate investment seminar in 1995.  Using real estate as his wealth creation vehicle, he amassed over a million dollar net worth while still in his 30’s.

From 1995 until early 2002, Arlen worked as a Sales Manager for a western Canadian manufacturing company.  He spent his days “earning a living” and he dedicated his evenings to his passion – “creating wealth” through Real Estate.

Arlen spent countless hours educating himself on “how to buy & manage” real estate.  He then took that knowledge and began purchasing revenue-producing Real Estate using his unique strategies.

Over the past 25 years, by purchasing over 300 properties in Alberta, Arlen has dramatically increased his net worth, along with the net worth of many of his investors.

With his portfolio backing him, Arlen resigned from his Sales Manger position in April, 2002 to dedicate more of his time to growing his Real Estate portfolio and helping others become financially independent by sharing with them his ‘real life’ Real Estate investing strategies.

Arlen Dahlin’s success has come through his experience, confidence, integrity, energy, and honest hard work.

Arlen, his wife Yvette, and three children Chase (16), Levi (13) & Cheyenne (11) cherish the serenity of living on an acreage 2 miles south of Sherwood Park, Alberta.  They both enjoy the simple things in life such as camping, fishing, coaching hockey, and the company of family & friends.

Gretchen graduated from the University of Michigan in Psychology and came to Canada over 30 years ago, so she gets the “new immigrant” experience.
