About Us

The Rent to Own (RTO) Home Team was founded by two entrepreneurs located in Kamloops BC with a passion for real estate. In our professional careers we have been real estate buyers, sellers, renters, landlords, employees and business owners. Our current investment portfolio includes properties of all sizes, from single family houses to apartment complexes. With a much diversified background it is our goal to provide a service to renters out there who dream of owning their own home but have been met with roadblocks such as poor credit or not enough funding for a down payment. We want to make this dream a reality by working with good clients who just need that small helping hand to get going.

We take a customer first approach to service: we exist to serve you. In a market where prices are constantly on the rise and qualifying for a mortgage gets harder and harder, give us a chance to walk you through our simplified process that will help make you a homeowner now!

Sam has been investing in real estate in Kamloops B.C. since 2009. He started his professional career as an RCMP officer before leaving that job to pursue real estate full time. Sam has been creating double digit returns using Real Estate for himself and his partners, and is looking forward to continued success and growth. To date, he has dealt with many challenging events in building his portfolio such as major renovations, arbitration hearings, purchasing large apartment complex, creating win win deals to save people from forclosure, and even writing a book. All while learning lessons along the way.
