About AARE

Our mission is to provide our students with solid and tested information, strategies, and win-win partnerships, that allow them to TAKE ACTION and succeed in today’s real estate market.

We are professional real estate investors with experience spanning millions of dollars in closed transactions. We have been buying, selling, managing and lending on properties professionally for over 5 years.

We are a professional real estate investment company that buys, sells, manages and makes loans on single-family and multi-family homes in your area. We work with properties in many areas and price ranges, ranging from single-family homes to 200+ unit apartment complexes.

We buy and sell some properties quickly; renovate others; hold onto others for cash flow and long-term appreciation, and make loans on yet other properties. With our field expertise and contacts, we have a well-developed sense of what makes a good real estate opportunity, and what’s not worth getting involved in.

AA Real Estate has many different entities, each handling a different aspect of real estate (or fruit!).  The organizational chart below gives you the full picture of the AA Real Estate Group.
