Prestigious Properties

Topic: "Investment Opportunities in Wine Country - the Sunny Southern Okanagan."

Thomas founded Prestigious Properties in 2000 and it has since grown into a group of companies or limited partnerships with a carefully selected small group of associates or co-owners. He believes in turning under-valued properties into “prestigious properties,” for the benefit of investors, tenants and communities. He has an MBA from the University of Alberta (1988) and a B.Sc. from the Technical University of Munich (1986). He has been the president of two rental pool boards and has been on several condominium boards since 1997. Prior to 2000 Thomas was a software project manager, including 8 years with IBM. He has lived in the lower mainland in BC, in Edmonton, Calgary, Canmore in Alberta, in Toronto, Germany, and South Africa. He founded Prestigious Properties in the year 2000 and has transacted over $230,000,000 in real estate since – primarily apartment buildings, but also single family houses, condos, land parcels and mobile home parks. He is happily married with two adult children.

Thomas invests his own money and that of other people to create wealth for himself, his co-investors and for the communities at large through improved property values, better buildings, creative marketing techniques, better HR policies and more ethical tenant and sub-contractor policies.

He was also an elected director and the chair of the finance committee of the University Neighborhoods Association (UNA) for residents living on the UBC campus, providing municipal-like services for its 8000+ residents, for 3 years. He was a task force member of a financial sustainability taskforce jointly staffed by UBC and UNA to address financial challenges in the residential community due to the declining mill rates in Vancouver. He recently was appointed “member at large” for the UNA to continue to address these ongoing financial and governance issues facing 10,000+ UBC residents.

He has published the book called “80 Lessons Learned on the Road from $80,000 to $80,000,000” that is available on amazon or as three e-books with a foreword by Don R Campbell and is a co-author of another best selling book with Ozzie Jurock entitled “Real Estate Action 2.0” focusing on proven real estate investment principles that bring results.

He is also the lead investor and a director in a phased townhouse housing project in Oliver, BC called Oliver Landing which is open to investments via an OM right now.
