Spencer and Ashley co-founded Travelluxe Inc. in 2019, a short-term rental management company, which currently manages over 45 units across Canada. They were able to leave their corporate jobs in 2021 and 2022 to focus all their efforts on their businesses. Their love for travel has brought them all around the world in premium cabins using points and miles, where they are able to mix work and pleasure by creating systems that allow them to be location independent. When not travelling, you can find Spencer and Ashley at home with their two fur-babies, Tucker and Stella.
Michelle and Marten Wind have a shared passionate in real estate investing, helping others and a desire for financial freedom.

Michelle retired from General Motors once they shut down the Oshawa Plant in October 2019 and Marten retired from 30+ years of Policing in January of 2020. They focused on family, real estate investments, and their business. They bring experience and a growth mind set to the table and treat their owners as partners in this real estate investing journey.
