“Family and friendships are two of the greatest facilitators of happiness.”
– John C. Maxwell
From a family office to a customer-focused enterprise
Founded in 2018 as a family office focused on managing and growing a real estate portfolio, our team transitioned in 2020 to a specialty real estate brokerage focused on rental investment activities for domestic and foreign high-net-worth investors.
Using profits from his landscaping business, RentalInvesting.com founder James White began acquiring residential property by mortgage assumption in 2003 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. By 2005, as a result of strategic decisions coupled with the Calgary real estate boom, the value of equity appreciation in White’s rental portfolio had exceeded the annual net revenue in his landscape business.
James White met his American business partner, Andrew Easler, and began investing in the US real estate market.
In 2011, Easler invited White to visit the Space Coast of Florida where he discovered promising real estate investment opportunities.
James White applied for U.S. permanent residency, earned his real estate license, then started buying, managing, leasing, and selling real estate for himself and others.
While visiting the Space Coast to celebrate his new permanent residenty status, James’ parents, Tim and Susan, agreed to acquire an equal share in the real estate portfolio.
James White earned his real estate broker license and founded his first retail brokerage.
James White sold his brokerage in late-2017 to focus on the family’s growing portfolio of real estate.
In February 2020, the family founded ATS Breakwater LLC to buy, manage, lease, and grow the family’s portfolio of real estate.
In 2019, James’ parents, Tim and Susan White obtained their U.S. permanent residency in order to assist James White and Andrew Easler with their growing rental investment business.
In response to travel restrictions imposed because of COVID-19, the family was asked to temporarily help manage assets of long-time family friends and foreign investors. The family agreed and the temporary agreement soon turned into a permanent management contract. The company had shifted focus and so the name did, too. In July of 2020, the name changed from ATS Breakwater LLC to RentalInvesting.com, LLC.
