Travis Cadman spent the last 25 years in real estate. He focuses on residential development, commercial property investment and land banking. He has participated in multiple real estate projects and investments since 1985.
He worked on an individual or joint venture basis, with a focus on properties and developments in Canada and the United States. He co-founded a single family and multi -family home development company in partnership with his brother Ron Cadman, providing innovative design and superior quality products to Alberta Investors.
In 2005, they launched CBI Group Investments. They offer a wide array of real estate investment products to investors across North America. It ranges from multi-family developments to foreclosed real estate to retail opportunities across Alberta and a land syndication opportunity less than two miles from the largest single-level shopping centre in Alberta.
When Ron and Travis realized the real estate investment opportunities during the US housing crisis, they used their Phoenix Arizona resources to compile the data and research required. Then they put together a team of individuals that could acquire foreclosed properties from the trustee sales. They were able to evaluate each home by neighborhood within Maricopa County by using the proprietary acquisitions system, and they began Arizona Investar.
Before being solely focused on real estate investment, Travis Cadman was a residential home builder. His experience and success in constructing more than 2,000 single and multifamily housing properties served as an excellent primer when he decided to shift towards real estate investment.
At the start of the economic downturn, he identified the markets that would be the most significantly affected, and made the move to Phoenix, Arizona – where the number of sub-prime mortgages was unusually high. He acquired a number of undervalued homes from diverse channels, including bank auctions and short sales.
Between 2008 and 2017, Travis Cadman renovated hundreds of properties and then installed them into the rental market, therefore achieving great profits even during the worst of the Great Recession.
Ron and Travis Cadman each have over 30 years of real estate experience with real estate holdings in a $100M commercial fund, mobile home communities, real estate management, mixed-use developments and other income producing real estate. Between 2008 and 2012, they deployed over $20M to acquire distressed assets in the Greater Phoenix market.
