Shortly before his retirement from the federal civil service, Stuart began investing in real estate alongside his wife, Denise.

Due to their significant expertise in real estate, Stuart and Denise were featured on major US television networks including NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, & CNN.
As the proud son of a Royal Canadian Air Force officer, Stuart grew-up exposed to Canada’s breadth of rich beauty and national heritage. Stuart returned to his roots in Ottawa, where he currently resides with his wife and business partner, Denise. Together, they have four grown children and five grandchildren.

Stuart and his wife Denise started actively investing in real estate in 2010, with the acquisition of a single family home which they successfully converted into a duplex property. Stuart and Denise later became heavily active and very successful in the rent-to-own market. Over time, they have increased their portfolio significantly, including the recent acquisition of their first multi-family building. They have also developed expertise in leveraging unconventional financing options and have engaged in joint ventures with other investment partners. Stuart and Denise’s real estate investments presently include an active portfolio of single family and multi-family residential units, and they have successfully closed a significant number of private financing deals.
