Get to Know Doug Crowe

For the past 22 years, Doug Crowe has been an active investor and developer. In 2001, Doug founded the Springboard Academy, the nation's only semester-based real estate school for investors. The academy graduated students ONLY when they had tangible results from their investing. Weekly homework, ongoing support, and constant communication gave the Springboard Group, the highest percentage of successful students of any real estate education system in the world.

Doug is well known for his fresh, insightful, useful, and "commercial-free" speaking. He has been featured at the Chicago Creative Investors Association, Midwest REIA, Miami REIA, McHenry REIA, NW Indiana REIA, and numerous other clubs, groups, and symposiums. As a member of CCIM he is in tune with high level real estate as well as investing for the common man. For a glimpse at his speaking style and experience, click here.

Doug also hosted the longest running real estate talk show in the Midwest. He began on WIND and migrated over to WLS in 2007. The show featured stories, humor, and interviews from noted authors Robert Shemin, Laurel Langmeier and Robert Kiyosaki.

Interestingly, Doug has taken a hiatus from the academy, radio show, and all other developments to focus on his dream project...a 350 acre private island resort in the Caribbean. This project is the largest development in Belize and will feature over 300 private villas, 2 major hotels, a convention center and world class spa. The project is being designed by Kobi Karp, who earned the distinction of architect of the year in 2007. The project is fully approved, entitled, and construction on phase I is underway. To take a tour of the model home and see why Doug has given up ALL of his other projects and most of his media exposure, contact him at 630-890-3998 or


My area of expertise is a culmination of my background and experience in media and real estate. Being featured on CBS news, Daily Cafe and being on the radio for nearly 5 years allowed me to preview hundreds of projects and thousands of individual deals.

I can candidly and without prejudice evaluate nearly any deal from homes to shopping centers. I have written pieces for, the Business Ledger and contributed to articles on MSN Money, Yahoo Finance, the Chicago Tribune and Daily Herald.
