addy member, Ingmar Zahorsky, is a senior executive in a software as a service (SaaS) company that has a presence in Berlin, Toronto, and Seoul. He recently relocated from Toronto to Berlin last year. Connecting with him was an awesome reminder about the progress we are making against our commitment to breaking down barriers in real estate investing.
“addy makes it super easy to understand the value proposition of each property featured. There is an educational aspect to the experience that helps me become a better real estate investor,” he says. “addy carefully selects and curates properties and presents the opportunity type and specifications in a format that anyone can understand. Plus, I like that I can diversify by investing in many properties alongside thousands of members from across Canada.”
Ingmar has some experience investing in REITs (real estate investment trusts) but does not invest in real estate otherwise so he was keen to add us into the mix, “I like how addy enables me to turn my investment into an immediate asset. Achieving this on my own would require substantial financial resources.” Since joining, he has invested in 6 addy properties.
We asked him what types of properties get him most excited: “I like value-add properties that have higher upside potential. In my current life stage, I feel comfortable taking on a reasonably high level of risk when investing as I have a long time horizon. I also like reading about the value-add plan in detail.”
He has been following our co-founder Stephen Jagger since he was building his last startup Payroll Hero and in the summer of 2020, he joined one of our webinars that Steve was hosting and was immediately intrigued to join.
“I enjoy being an early adopter and seeing how addy is constantly growing and improving.”
