About Us


Melanie and Dave Dupuis, also known as Investor Mel & Dave, are innovative real estate investors who have SOLELY acquired over 200 apartments in just a few short years. Using creative and successful strategies, they have been able to increase their portfolio significantly without using any of their own money. They impressively have 100% ownership of these properties, which means they keep 100% of the equity, appreciation, and cashflow.

Investor Mel & Dave are proof that as long as you don’t let anything stop you, success can be yours. Following a horrific life-changing highway crash in 2018, they wrote a Real Estate Investing book “Real Estate Investing Secrets – A NO-B.S. Guide to Creating Wealth & Freedom” that achieved Amazon #1 Best Seller status very early into their launch. Mel is also co-author of “The Only Woman in the Room – Knowledge and Inspiration from 20 Women Real Estate Investors, that was recently launched and also achieved Best Seller status.

With over 20 years of combined experience in real estate investing, property ownership and management, this self-made couple understands the ins and outs of building a business and of acquiring wealth through real estate. In 2019, they won the “Small Business of the Year” Award, in North Bay, have won the 2020 Canadian Business Award as Leading Experts in Real Estate Investing and have also won the 2021 Canadian Business Award as Top Real Estate Mentors. They are dedicated to helping others create their own time, location and financial freedoms. They are both speakers and mentors throughout North America and have mentored hundreds of people on how to use creative financing and other people’s money (OPM) to change their lives. Their online presence is impressive, with over 175,000 followers. You can find them on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and YouTube under their user name Investor Mel & Dave and on their website at www.investormeldave.com

Sometimes it takes a tragedy to help you see your life clearly. Before we had even met each other, we both had rental properties, and were interested in real estate investments. Together, we wanted to learn more, and see how this “side hustle” could play a larger role in our lives and started working on investments and property management.

But after a serious car accident during a shuttle ride to a Real Estate Investing Conference in Toronto, we had a choice to make. We could either go home and lick our wounds, or continue on to the conference and follow our dream.

Well as you can guess, we decided to go for it and continue on to the conference! We met so many great people in the world of real estate investing that day and it really changed the trajectory of our lives. We were inspired to pursue this business full time, and share with others along the way. If not for that fateful day, we may have never gotten to where we are today!
