Angel Investor, Polyglot, Real Estate Investor
Bruges, Belgium

I am a B2B SaaS angel and international real estate investor, mostly focused in Brazil and Benelux. My years of experience working around the world has helped me to build an international network where I like to help building connections between people/companies.
Lived and worked in Rio for over ten years.
During my free time, I am all about reading, walking/running and a bit of Qoorio🙂

Ray Dalio: " Raising the probability of being right is valuable no matter what your probability of being right already is." ----- This made me think deeper...🤔🤯 I learned the hard way that making additional questions in the decision process can indeed increase the odds considerably: - do I need to decide now: can I connect the 'lines' instead of the 'dots': power of longer observation... -what's my cost of opportunity? Is there a third way? - do I need / do I wan't ? If so, WHY rationally/emotionally I want to consider this... - whom in my network has additional expertise/experience can provide me with a mirror... Offcourse not for minor decisions but for major decisions affecting time horizon/allocation and risk (monetary and last but not least emotionally) I learned about decision heuristics to make shortcut decisions and there is nothing wrong with that...but you have to be AWARE of them... I learned as a real estate investor and angel investor about calculated spread sheet investments...in a world of imperfect/biased assymetric information (gutt feeling needed) : the real magic happens when you have to put everything together to improve indeed the odds/dots... There is no such thing as THE opportunity. And once I take the decision I don't look back and make the best of it... Amen🙂😇💭🤔💭💭💭 Qoorio-ers what do you think ...? ....

Yeah not looking back and second-guessing yourself is important, otherwise you never can move on to the next decision. Not easy though - I find myself waking up in the night wondering about investment decisions we have made....

Dear Qoorio-ers, does anyone has good/bad experiences with P2P real estate lending sites like estateguru, reinvest24...? Would you recommend investing trough these platforms? Why/why not ?
