Initially, he operated with a Belgian broker, subsequently with a renowned Canadian research house, and with an American Bank. At that time, he became a registered representative with the Belgian, Montreal, and New York Stock Exchanges. Only when he was operating with the First Continental Bank of Illinois did he add technical research to the fundamentals. A couple of years later, he started his own business, became a member of the Belgian Stock exchange, and became a well-known figure in the Financial world.

His experience encompasses banking, Real Estate, commodities, gold, silver, equity and bond markets, fund management, corporate finance, and investment strategy.

As founder and first President of the BFTA (Belgian Federation of Technical Analysts and past-vice president of the IFTA (International Federation of Technical Analysts), he managed different Common Investment funds and even ran a successful open portfolio in a financial magazine (Trends). He published his financial market letter weekly, and his international advice could be read in many financial publications.

Filip is one of the best upcoming financial analysts. Young, dynamic, open-minded, and not prepared to accept ideas without rethinking, he is a real asset for the future. In 2001 he graduated as a Master in General Economics and International Relations. He subsequently obtained an MBA at the Vlerinck Management school.

He relocated to Spain and got a function as a project manager and sales coordinator in the then-booming Real Estate market. In this function, he was amazed to see that almost all properties were sold with a substantial mortgage allocated with little or no care. New money was being pumped into the system at an unseen pace. Passionate about macroeconomics, he decided to investigate further.

He currently operates as a consultant, providing HNWI (high-net-worth individuals) and companies with macro-economic issues and general strategy.

Renee’ Shane

Renee Shane is a licensed Realtor in Florida. I am honored to share the fabulous South Florida lifestyle with you and hope you consider South Florida as your slice of paradise!

As a native Floridian, I value my real estate clientele uniquely. I bring a wealth of information on real estate trends, municipalities and governments, property values, and future development plans. I can provide you with a wide selection of investment properties in South Florida. We will ensure you feel extremely comfortable in your purchase decision and guide you through all aspects of the purchase and ongoing property management.

I look forward to assisting you in every way! Welcome to South Florida!

Recognizing the oncoming foreclosure market in Florida (one of the highest foreclosure markets in the world), Renee quickly changed business strategies to begin specializing in short sales long before most people in the industry understood the concept.
I became a Certified Short Sale Expert (SFR) in 2007. "This certification has enabled me to help my clients capitalize on distressed property investment opportunities. We are now seeing many investors in the St Lucie real estate market due to the noteworthy price declines. Port St. Lucie is 33.3% below market value in median home prices, as IHS Global Insights and PNC Financial Services reported. Our area will continue to be a focal point for below-market purchasers well into 2011.

"Now is the perfect storm of buying - huge inventory to choose from, lowest prices in years, and historically low-interest rates. This is the first time in quite a while that investors can purchase a property with minimum money down and have a positive cash flow." Does that mean she thinks the bottom has hit? "Probably not, but there are great buys out there now."
