ProcTorr Investments is a family business that has it's roots dating back to 2005. The first investment property Peter & Lesley bought was a 3-bedroom single family home in Calgary that they still own today. Soon afterwards Peter and Lesley purchased two more investment properties, a 1-bedroom rental suite and a 2-bedroom lakeside property that they now enjoy for their own use after several successful years of renting.
In 2014 Peter & Lesley saw an opportunity to take their investing to the next level and Proctor-Torrance Corporation was incorporated in Canada and ProcTorr Investments in USA. Within a very short time ProcTorr Investments had successfully bought properties in Alabama, Illinois and Missouri, as well as land in Florida. Peter & Lesley also bought, renovated and flipped a 5-bedroom home in Longwood, Florida while continuing to live in Canada.
Peter says, "Investing in USA is no different than investing in Canada. ProcTorr Investments is in the marketing business, and once marketing has been mastered then there are no borders or limits to where someone can invest. With partners on the ground in several cities in USA, ProcTorr Investments is free to market and invest anywhere there are opportunities."
