In 2006, Christopher Lee was a medical resident at Calvary Hospital. He was still trying to pay off his house. He had two children and was the sole breadwinner of his family.
All Christopher wanted was to have a comfortable income so he could do more with his life.
Around that time, a property investment group contacted him and that’s when he first met Sumer Singh.
“It was quite scary buying the first“We wouldn’t be where we are now without Sumer’s investment guidance.” property”, Christopher said.
But the process went very well and Christopher got in touch with Sumer again.
“Having met him, I now felt very comfortable dealing with him”, Christopher said.
“Sumer sees things you can’t see. He can see your future. I was 30 at the time and he told me what my life would look like at 50.
“We wouldn’t be where we are now without Sumer’s guidance.”
Sumer took Christopher from having no investment at all, having a mortgage, and trading his time for every cent he earned, to where he is now with six investment properties, his house paid off and passive income coming in that he doesn’t have to work for.
“Sumer’s main aim is to predict what is going to happen and get you into it”, Christopher said.
“Sumer is the sort of person you can call at midnight and he will know where you are with investment and money. He has it all in his mind. He doesn’t call you back a week later after looking through the notes.
“Right now we have six investment properties all bought with Sumer’s help.
“The first time we went over everything with a fine-tooth comb. The last four properties we bought without even seeing the places.
“The properties we invest in have all performed well. They have held their value and rents have gone up.
“We also do shares, it’s good to diversify, but not to the extent that we invest in property.”
Christopher found that there were sacrifices they had to make but that the future payoff was a risk they were willing to take.
“We forego the new car for a few years and now that we are over the hill financially, we can really start enjoying it all now.
“We want to live comfortably. I want to retire sooner rather than later. I want to work for the joy of it rather than work to live. And I want to be able to afford a decent lifestyle until I die.”
As well, Christopher found there was a valuable side benefit to investing in his future.
“Prices are rising so much that our kids won’t be able to afford their own place when they’re older. Because of the investment that Sumer helped us with, we are buying them their insurance now.
“Looking back I wouldn’t have done it any differently. I trust Sumer with my life and my money”, Christopher said.
