Alex and Kathy Schuck founded North Shore Real Estate Solutions, LLC, located in Andover, Massachusetts in 2009. Their company has bought, rehabbed, built, and sold many single-family houses in the Middlesex and Essex county areas. They have bought houses going through: short sale, pre-foreclosure, probate, and bankruptcy processes; through estate sales, REO properties, and physically distressed properties. They have experienced everything from light remodeling to tearing down and building new construction. And they have used a number of different ways to finance their deals; including through self-directed IRAs, hard money loans, private loans, and commercial bank loans to name a few.
In addition, Alex has a sales and advertising background and is responsible for finding deals through marketing and networking. Kathy specializes in managing the entire rehab process, from managing the contractors, to choosing the colors and fixtures for each rehab. Also, having her real estate salesperson’s license has given her the ability to buy, market, and sell their rehab properties.
Both Alex and Kathy are Mastery Coaches with the FortuneBuilders™ company where they have coached hundreds of real estate investors throughout the country. They have been guest hosts on a real estate talk show on a Boston radio station and on a local cable station, and have spoken at many Fortune Builders and local REIA events.
