    At the end of the day, in order to build wealth, there is a simple approach which we have followed: investing for the long term in high-quality assets purchased at attractive valuations — By owning great assets, you can just forget about all the noise and the irrational market fluctuations.

    A Message From Our Founder

    Meet The Founder

    My involvement in the real estate space has been a lifelong journey, marked by various roles and experiences; some more meaningful than others. Throughout it all, the vision of establishing my own firm has been a constant thread.

    Life unfolds as a series of lessons, growth, transitions, and transformations — a unique tapestry of challenges, discoveries, and change. While it may sound cliché, life truly is a journey. Today, I find myself at the realization of a dream nurtured for nearly a decade — launching my own real estate firm.

    I am driven by a deep belief that the most precious gift I can give others is a higher quality of life. I thrive on the feeling of genuinely helping others to become better than they might otherwise be. Of course, I could have selected any number of instruments to fulfill this calling. But I believe providing people with access to a great financial vehicle to achieve their dreams is among the most noble and impactful of all.

    My earnest wish is that you find unwavering honesty, integrity, and dedicated effort in your interactions with me. Let’s get to know each other. Let’s do some great work. And let’s have some fun doing it!

    With boundless gratitude and excitement for the road ahead, I extend my heartfelt thanks.

    Rick Randhawa, Oakwide
