Augustine Wong is On a Mission to Show People That They Too Can Invest in Real Estate

Augustine Wong (www.augustine-wong.com) grew up in Vancouver, BC and worked as a computer engineer for almost 10 years. 6 years ago, he started investing in real estate after attending a Keyspire real estate investing seminar. Over time, he built up a portfolio of 3 income properties and used different real estate investing strategies to generate 5-figure passive income annually. At the same time, he slowly realized that all of the hard work and dedication to his full time job translated very often into being passed over for promotions and long nights spent staring at a laptop. He realized that being smart and hard working meant little in the corporate world. But being smart and hard working when investing your own money translated into success.

Because of his bitter experience working as an employee for someone else and his success being a real estate investor, Augustine is on a mission to show people that they too can be real estate investors so that they do not need to feel so dependent on their full time jobs to survive. When working with his clients, his goal is not to help them earn more money but to help them make investments which will empower them to pursue the lives that they truly desire.
