Roel Sarmago was born in Cebu City, Philippines. His parents immigrated to Canada along with his older sister when Roel was only one year old. He currently lives in Mississauga just outside of Toronto in the province of Ontario. There, he lives with his wife and son and, at the time of this writing, they are expecting their second child. Roel’s passion has always been to empower individuals with the right knowledge, tools and inspiration to take action towards achieving their dreams. Early on in his working years, Roel realized that those dreams often required money. Thus, his life’s work soon evolved into helping people achieve their dreams through the most effective and efficient personal financial management strategies possible. Roel's passions are reflected in the roles he plays as an author, Financial Coach and licensed Mortgage Agent. On several occasions, Roel has been invited to share his passion at the Schulich School of Business at York University and at the University of Toronto Investment Society, and Management & Economics Students' Association. Roel is available for speaking engagements, group training and one-on-one coaching on real estate investing, personal development and personal finance.
