A Bit About Rose
After a long career in the hospitality industry, Rose achieved her single-parent dream of entrepreneurship. It all started when she purchased her first home and used the money to attain another. Before she knew it, she was in the real estate game. The freedom of self-employment gave her ample family time while working fewer hours for more money.
She didn’t realize at the time what her potential was, but she was surrounded by wealth and soaking up all the investment strategies she could. As life changed, Rose found herself in a situation where she had little money but was able to use the knowledge that she gained from past experiences. She used a small number of RRSPs to secure an old building, drew up blueprints on a scrap piece of paper, decided what she’d need to set it in motion, and raised the capital to make it happen.
From that, a strategic planner was born. Rose currently works with Bridgestone Financing Pros to bring a wealth of knowledge and support to individuals interested in purchasing real estate. She believes that with the property investment strategy, anyone can grow a real estate portfolio. In the day-to-day, Rose vets investors, joint venture partners and investment properties to help clients build wealth.

How We Give Back
Financial Literacy For Teens, Young Adults And Parents
Knowing about financial literacy is an invaluable advantage. Having a solid foundation that allows you to start building wealth at an early age sets youth up for the future. That’s why we’re dedicated to hosting seminars on financing and traveling to high schools where we teach teens, young adults, and parents about financial literacy.
Easter Seal - Drop Zone
As part of the HAVAN Heroes, we leaped off three buildings in Vancouver, Surrey, and Burnaby to raise money for youth supported by. In the last 3 years, we’ve collectively raised over $100,000. Bridgestone Financing Pros believes that every dollar donated has a positive impact on the kids, such as sending them to summer camps, integrative work initiatives, and life skills programs.
