Real Estate Investment

I began investing in real estate in 1973 through my firm Christian Shores Investment Company, as well as obtaining a NH Real Estate Broker license, which I keep active through continuing education requirements. After retiring as a Senior Software Engineer in 2015, I began to liquidate my portfolio, though I continue to consult on real estate and real estate finance when called upon.

Based on my success in real estate investing, I opened Seapoint Mortgage in 1981 obtaining NH 1st and 2nd Mortgage Broker licenses, and Maine State 2nd Mortgage Broker License, and Maine State Arranger of Credit License. Unfortunately, the economy was imploding at the time, and when offered a position doing software development in 1982, I closed the firm.
