Nick Aalerud, Principal, AA Real Estate Group
After graduating from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH, Nick Aalerud began his investing career as a banker for BNY Mellon Financial. While dealing with mutual funds, stocks, and bonds, and observing the market closely, Nick began to see the value of investing in real estate and the many advantages it has over the traditional financial markets.
Nick sought further education in real estate investing and started AA Real Estate Enterprises as a real estate acquisition firm in 2005, with the goal of assisting distressed homeowners while providing safe, affordable living for prospective tenants and homebuyers. Expanding the focus of the company to include wholesaling, rehabbing, new construction, rental properties, and short sale mitigation, AARE has since completed over $70 million in closed real estate transactions, including more than 170 rehabs and rebuilds with multiple active projects currently in process, and manages over 50 rental units in New England, Pennsylvania and Florida.
A passionate advocate of the importance of education as well as the real estate investing industry, Nick serves as a mentor to individuals getting started in the business and is a sought-after speaker at networking events and educational seminars. To reach as many potential students as possible, he gathered his experience and insights into a step-by-step course on getting started in wholesaling called The Complete Dealflow System©.
Nick’s own education in real estate investing includes:
- Rich Dad Education/Russ Whitney Institute (Whitney/Kiyosaki – Property Management, Mobile Home Parks, Commercial Real Estate, Multi-Family Acquisition)
- Lindahl Institute (Multi-Family Acquisition, Property Management, Investment Syndication, Self-Storage)
- John Beck (Tax Lien Investing, Wholesaling)
- Jeffrey Taylor (Property Management)
