The Capstone Advantage
Capstone Real Estate was established in 2004 to provide Canadians with quality, hassle-free RRSP eligible real estate investment solutions. With a successful track record of nine real estate investment projects to date, Capstone has created many positive investing experiences for investors. The Capstone management team boasts the expertise and the diligence to properly select and comprehensively manage the right kinds of investment real estate. Their modus operandi has always been to purchase under-valued real estate with the goal of making it more accessible to potential investors. With attractive and attainable opportunities, previous projects have sold out quickly and many have consistently generated positive cash flow for their investors. Capstone’s hassle-free investments allow you to circumvent the responsibility of acquiring and managing a property.
Capstone’s Wealth of Experience
A combined 40 years in real estate acquisition and financial services experience has culminated in a track record that speaks for itself. Reliability, leadership and knowledge have proven a winning combination for investors who took advantage of prior real estate opportunities with the Capstone management team. By purchasing under-valued real estate, the Capstone management team was able to perpetually realize maximum returns for investors.
