Mitch Cleary

As a dedicated husband and proud father of three rambunctious boys, life is always an adventure in our household. But before I stepped foot into the realm of real estate, I grew up working in the world of new home construction, thanks to our family home building business. Working in positions ranging from a hardworking labourer to crafting and framing as a skilled carpenter, I've seen it all. With each passing year, my expertise lead me into the role of a site supervisor. Scheduling, coordinating trades, and ensuring smooth operations became second nature to me.

In 2018, my wife and I bought a piece of land, and I took on the role of a general contractor to build our very own dream home. The journey was filled with gritty challenges and endless hours of sweat, but witnessing our vision come to life was beyond rewarding. That same year, I also ventured into the world of real estate as an agent here in Peterborough. It was while assisting clients that I recognized a glaring gap in knowledge and awareness when it came to purchasing vacant land and constructing homes.

Fueled by a burning determination to bridge this gap and empower others, I became a course creator and educator, which allows me the opportunity to share my expertise and help individuals and families gain the confidence and know-how to buy vacant land and construct their own homes.

Today, my unwavering commitment lies in educating and guiding ambitious owner-builders through the complexities of construction mortgages, navigating the convoluted world of land acquisition, and transforming their intricate home dreams into tangible realities. Whether you're a first-time builder eager to get your hands dirty or a seasoned DIY enthusiast, rest assured that I'll be there, every step of the way, offering unwavering support.
