Pete discusses how his business model and practice allows him to transform the lives of others and take something ugly and make it beautiful while still earning a living.
Since 1982, Pete Dupuis has been involved in the successful sales and marketing of luxury real estate as CEO and President of S&P Real Estate Corporation. Along with his business partner Sid Landolt, they have sold more than 22,000 condominiums on four continents and in 11 countries, and have worked with clients such as the Four Seasons, Trump International and the Ritz-Carlton.
A chance meeting with TOMS shoes founder, Blake Mycoskie on a flight from Los Angeles to Vancouver in 2009, inspired Pete to spend the next three years studying social entrepreneurship, modern philanthropy, slum housing and landfill communities. Pete’s thesis on the matter, entitled “World Housing: A Blueprint for Creating Third World Bottom of the Pyramid Housing Supply Through a First World One-for-One Real Estate Gifting Model” was successfully defended in January 2013, and the following day the World Housing program was initiated as the world’s first one-for-one real estate gifting model.
