Ronald is the founder and president of Property Pathways and delivers on his promise to pioneer an enriched design and construction experience for real estate investors.

He started investing in real estate in 2016 and was surprisingly challenged to find a design or contractor that could explain the legal process of a secondary suite renovation. He set out to become the subject matter expert and the valuable resource to real estate investors throughout Ontario.

By leveraging his education and experience gained in the commercial construction sector, he created a hybrid service specific to real estate investors who focus on the creation of long term wealth by buying and holding or BRRR real estate.

He works with real estate investors and their real estate agents to identify Suite-Able properties and has the battle scars and relationship in municipalities throughout Ontario to prove it. Navigating the bylaw and building code requirements for a legal secondary suite bridges the gap and creates a Pathway between the problems associating with converting property and the profit that awaits the investors.

Our service is predicated on the belief that the building permitting process for real estate investors should be uniquely tailored and we achieve this through our four-phase design process that produces the detailed and easy to interpret permit drawings for a worry free construction process. Sit back, relax and enjoy today’s show.
