We had the good fortune of connecting with Chris & Cameron and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chris & Cameron, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
Our favorite affirmation is, “Only good things happen to us”
When we first started our business, we wanted to celebrate every little win we could get. So when we stumbled upon good fortune or had a stroke of good luck, we would look at one another and say, “Only good things happen to us!” Since that beginning point, we have continued to say it frequently. It has shaped our mindset to be grateful for every good thing that comes our way and to focus on the positive outcomes of our business – never the negative possibilities that come with risk.
What should our readers know about your business?
One year after graduation, we had each saved some money up – how could we turn that money into even more money? With a little courage and a lot of research, we used it for a downpayment on our first home.
It became immediately clear that building equity, and creating cash flow was and is our path to a bountiful future.
Four years and 15 properties later, we knew we were ready to share our journey with anyone else who wanted to move toward financial freedom.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
A book that helped spark our journey is called, “Set for Life” By Author Scott Trench. This book kicked off our interest in real estate as an investment vehicle to begin our entrepreneurial ventures.
We would also like to shout out to one another, in our partnership we have the benefit of being there for one another. If one of us is having a tough time, the other is always there to lift the spirits and get us back on track.
