I’m excited to bring to you, all the way from Oshawa, Ontario, Ryan Carr, a trained Mechanic who was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug and turned to real estate at first renovating his own investment properties and when he couldn’t scale himself working on the tools, he hired full time contractors.  If you’ve been renovating or looking to renovate like I have, you know how hard it is to get the attention of contractors with this housing boom going on.  Ryan’s solution is to hire folks full time and he’s keeping them busy as he’s purchased 20 houses in the last two years, all requiring varying degrees of renovations including the vertical duplex split.  A horizontal split would be the traditional basement apartment duplex whereas Ryan will install a vertical wall/s to divide a property to increase cash flow by $300-500/month.  Ryan will share some tips on when to vertical split and how to source 20 properties, mostly private deals not on MLS.
 
This interview with Ryan was an eye opener to me as are all of our guests but this is the first time my podcast has been required listening for my team the Halton REI Team.
 
So without further ado, I give you Ryan Carr

This week I’m excited to bring to you, all the way from Kingston, Ontario, Rene Masse who was been working with tenants for over 20 years as he did grow up along side them living in his home. Rene has invested for 10 years having reached the significant milestone of earning $5,000 cash flow per month from student rentals after six years and he did so investing only $14,000 of his own money!  That is a pretty good return on investment considering Rene quit his teaching job three months giving up the steady paycheque and pension and job security for the entrepreneurial life.  This is after years of University and Teacher’s College at Queen’s University and graduating with debt!!  Rene definitely has no interest in being average and is truly living life to his fullest as you’ll see from the interview where I did not ask one single question that I had prepared.  Rene also produces a series of entertaining and educational videos on the subject of real estate investing and he has extensive experience in hiring university students to work in his business and video production and he’ll share how he does it.  So without further ado, I present to you, Rene Masse

This podcast is brought to you by the Halton Real Estate Investors Group. Since 2010, I helped many people including first time investors make millions of dollars with their side hustle of investing in nice homes in the nicer areas west of Toronto such as Burlington, Hamilton, St. Catharines, Niagara Region, Brantford, and Cambridge, Ontario. The goal of the Halton REI is to entice would-be real estate entrepreneurs to get off the couch, make things happen, and replicate the success of our multi-millionaire clients.  Those who choose to work with the Halton REI Team will have the opportunity to be coached by a highly skilled and highly successful investor coach who has walked the walk having owned numerous properties, earning thousands in cash flow each month who is licensed to trade in real estate.  Listeners to this show can go to www.haltonrei.ca/signup to register but when I checked this morning, we have only 8 seats left so do register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.  One of the secrets of success is to surround oneself with successful people and in my ten plus years of attending workshops and networking events, this is one of the best places to be and I hope to see you soon.

This week I’m excited to bring to you my friend and client Roger Auger who grew up in a poor and less than ideal household in a bad part of town.  From an early age, Roger learned he had to hustle to make money to pay his parents’ mortgage because what else should a 13 year old be doing. But he struggled in school and resorted to blackmailing his high school teachers to allow him to graduate or endure another year him back.  Roger tried college but that didn’t work out but he never stopped working hard to earn enough to buy investment property.  Now at 13 properties, he’s done quite well for himself amassing considerably more wealth than many people I know with Masters degrees and on top of that, he has a heart of gold as Roger is the co-founder of the HamiltonBasketBrigade.com, wait till you hear the story about him and Josh delivering Christmas dinners.  So without further ado, I give your Roger Auger
