Melanie and Dave Dupuis are experienced, successful, self-taught real estate investors taking the multi-family market by storm in North Bay, Ontario.
Together, they founded Dupuis Properties and put their business plan into action. Their ultimate goal was to expand and to grow their real estate portfolio to a point where their investments became prosperous enough for Melanie to leave her full-time employment.
They impressively acquired twelve properties in less than twelve months. They currently own and manage twenty-two buildings and eight-seven apartments. They have been recognized as one of the top three best rental property businesses in North Bay, and before turning forty, Melanie was able to quit her full-time job.
This allows her to have the opportunity to focus her time on their real estate portfolio, while also enjoying wealth, freedom, and most importantly time with her three kids. After such amazing success with Dupuis Properties, Melanie and Dave are also the founders and CEOs of a new company offering property management and repair and maintenance services to property owners and investors.
