Meet Bruce McNeilage

A former cover person for Think Realty Magazine, McNeilage is now a recurring columnist sharing his wealth of information on the build-to-rent and build-for-rent sectors of real estate investing. Here, he talks about his WHY for REI:

I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart. Real estate investing and real estate development are among the purest and most exhilarating forms of entrepreneurialism you will find. There are inherent risks, but if you work long, hard, and smart, there are also plentiful rewards. But REI is much more than just a financial return. One of the key drivers, at least for me, is helping people live the American Dream. Economic conditions in the past several years have put up obstacles to home ownership and put the American Dream at risk. Through innovative programs such as Build-to-Rent, Build-for-Rent and Rent-to-Own, we are helping people find high-quality, affordable housing. Nothing beats the feeling of handing over the keys to a young family or first- time buyer. Writing for Think Realty helps me share my passion and innovative ideas with the entire industry. Hopefully, this will help developers and investors make the American Dream come true for people across the country.”
