It is no secret that people in Alberta and Saskatchewan are navigating rough economic waters. People are looking for answers, support and true leadership.

Right now is when we need to talk about solutions and opportunities. And believe me, there are many opportunities at hand right now for eager real estate entrepreneurs. Some people have actually been waiting for conditions like this. Now there will be no more guessing, no more hoping, no more wondering if you’re missing out (or making a mistake) and — most importantly — NO MORE FEAR!


We’ve boiled it down to the bare-bones basics of successful, long-term, sustainable wealth creation. No fluff, no filler, no sales pitches. Sure, we’ve all heard the hyped-up promises of some courses, seminars, and speakers — where they leave you with some good ideas but no clear, step-by-step game plan or any hands-on training. That’s simply not the case with the ACRE (Authentic Canadian Real Estate) system. This will be a coming together of experts, analysts, industry leaders, business owners and veteran investors who all live, work, and invest in Alberta.

ACRE Program graduates are action takers – not dreamers! Previous ACRE graduates have been so empowered by their ACRE experience they have purchased over five billion dollars of quality investment real estate. At the weekend event, you are fully guaranteed to get three days’ education outlining all the different ways you can leverage the present situation to the growth of your real estate business.

The earlier you register, the more you save! Get your tickets for the biggest real estate investing event of the year now.


Coffee and tea will be available throughout the weekend, and Northlands has several food options on the premises.


Parking at Northlands is $16 per day with no in/out privileges, so please plan accordingly.


Experience the energy of a room full of hundreds of likeminded real estate investors. Learn from the best in the business and get your questions answered.

You now have before you a choice to make…

You can continue believing in the doom-and-gloom the media keeps feeding everyone.


You can trust in people that have survived and thrived in times like this, and even worse than this.

People who have mastered the ability to see the real opportunity.

People who have created real estate empires from times like these.

People who are willing to bare all and share with you some of their best strategies for building a large and profitable real estate empire.

There has never been a better time to learn about this opportunity than there is right now.


Remember, the media madness going on right now only fuels the fire and scares more people into giving up their dreams.

It’s quite a shame that people fall for it – when there are simple solutions that are guaranteed to help you create your own personal nest-egg, while all those around you fall victim to the craziness being spread to the masses.

The systems we have perfected for using real estate to create sustainable lifestyles and sizable businesses work regardless of what the rest of the economy is doing (or not doing, as is our case right now).

The ACRE Program makes you money whether the economy is good or bad, whether the oil crisis is here or not, whether people are being laid off or not.

This system has the unique characteristic that it can adapt to the market swings and adapt itself to the present day situation.

So please do not delay….

We know from experience this event WILL sell out. Especially at this price!

Now is the time to act. 2017 is going to be the best of both worlds for those of us in the know with real estate investments.

Take advantage of the present day ‘crisis’ (as the media likes to say)… and create the lifestyle you have always wanted.

Sign up today before the remaining seats are gone.

The key right now for all of us is to keep calm, educate and surround ourselves with experts, and think strategically.

Which is exactly what you will achieve at the ACRE weekend!
