ALEK TIMCISIN

PARTNER, VP OPERATIONS

Alek Timcisin was born and raised on a farm in Bosnia. He lived there until he was 18, and due to the civil war in his home country, he had to leave everything behind and escape. He left his country, made is way to Germany, and at a young age, had to start taking care of himself. Two years later Alek decided to relocate to Ontario, Canada where he married his childhood sweetheart, and started his family at the age of 20.

Three years later purchased his first home, and five years later purchased his first 2 rental properties. He quickly learned of all the good, and the maybe not so good that comes with Real Estate investing.

Alek wears many hats: he has led many multi million dollar projects in industrial automation, tried a plethora of business ventures, and helped people along the way. The one thing that always stayed with him was his love for Real Estate investments.

Currently Alek and his team are actively working on acquiring multifamily properties throughout the southern US and helping Canadian investors.
