Originally from the United Kingdom, Simon is a Torontonian with over seventeen years of real estate investment experience and ten years of asset management experience. Simon holds an Industrial Engineering Degree as well as an MBA specializing in International Marketing. With a development and landlord foundation dating back two generations, Simon has been a lead player in the high volume pre-construction industry in Canada and internationally and has amassed over $5 billion in transactions to date.
In the 1990s, Simon established Toronto’s wholesale/bulk market segment by connecting a global network of investors to Southern Ontario’s booming condominium market. This approach has allowed investors to reap the rewards of ROI’s that have ranged from 30% to 100% per annum on their initial investments into the pre-construction market in what is regarded as the largest condominium market in the world. In 2004, he and John Mehlenbacher founded a ten person boutique firm that evolved into The Condo Store with over 300 sophisticated high net worth clients from around the globe. Over the years, their investments have spread from pre-construction condominiums to a wide range of investments in the real estate industry under the watchful eye of The Condo Store team.
In Spring 2013, Simon and his partners founded The Rosseau Group. His long-standing relationships with leading developers continue to fuel the Rosseau investment engine. Simon travels extensively to improve his relations with developers and international clients seeking investment in Canada and has ties to real estate industry leaders in the Middle East, Europe, United States and Canada.
