Randy Molland and Steve Arneson founded The REInvestors in 2016. They were just two guys who found themselves wanting more in life than the 9-5 grind. It started by taking educational courses followed by endless networking, studying, listening to podcasts, and books. The REInvestors have found a niche in educating home owners on the advantages of pulling the equity out of their house to buy and hold rental properties. Then the secret is to repeat this process.

The aim is to create a seamless and hands-off investment purchase for investors while receiving returns better than the average stocks, mutual funds and term deposits.​​

The goal from the beginning was always to provide more for the people around us. We thrive in watching other people succeed and enjoy helping others create a freedom they never thought imaginable! We both have goals where we want to be able to spend more time with our families while still providing a life of financial freedom.
