I first met Anna after seeing a piece by CTV Barrie on how an area student landlord was switching gears and renting to seniors instead, link below.  Anna has been in the student rental business for 25 years and after the straw that broke the camel’s back, another abused rental property by the student tenants and thousands of repairs and clean up bills, she switched gears in renting to seniors.

As a student rental investor myself, I immediately reached out to AMR Property Management to speak to owner Anna Moore and here is our recorded discussion.

Anna is a veteran business owner with a successful printing company, she currently manages 200 doors, many are her own investments, and she vacations much of the winter in the Bahamas and Europe in the summer.

Yet another lifestyle success story for you listeners as it’s not about the investment, it’s about what our investments afford us in lifestyles and Anna is living the dream plus her business is every improving as she goes from five senior rentals to offering as many as 50 this spring.

Without further ado, I give you Anna Moore of AMR Property Management

Craig Ballantyne is the first influencer I followed back in early 2000’s before influencer was a term to describe some with a significant following.

I knew Craig, he didn’t know me from his highly successful online fitness training program.  Craig’s clients would sign up online to learn how to exercise and diet to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. Craig also taught his business and marketing methods and produced many other successful online fitness entrepreneurs.  He is the real deal.

Fast forward to 2019 and Craig is still crushing it, two personal friends of mine are enjoying his personal coaching and I’m enjoying Craig’s Perfect Day Formula as seen below. Here’s the link if you want to check it out: https://perfectdayformula.com/

On to this week’s guest, Tom Sullivan, he is a Cancer survivor and when he learned of his Cancer, it served as a reminder how short and precious life is and went on a tear to acquire over 10 investment properties and earn him the Real Estate Investment Network’s award for Rookie of the Year in 2015.

Tom is a smart guy holding his Masters in Business and Chartered Professional Accountant designation, investing in the Durham Regions and places east of Toronto.  He’s also one of the nicest, most sharing people you’ll ever meet which is why it’s awful how another investor did not live up to their contractual, joint venture obligations when the partner profited so massively above projections from the deal.

As always, this is the Truth About Real Estate Investing show so we bring you real stories including those of headaches and financial losses so you may learn how to avoid similar mistakes.

As the saying goes, a fool learns from their own mistakes, a smart person learns from someone else’s mistakes.

Do have your note taking implements handy as Tom is full of great tips and thanks to him, I just loaded up with tons of extended warranties.  Without further ado, I give you Tom Sullivan.

Our keynote speakers Andy Tran, Charles Wah and Construction Manager Steve Ford are currently building two houses from the ground up on a lot they already own and had severed. Basically they got free so the returns are quite significant when you have next to zero land acquisition costs, especially the cash flow once the basements are legally suited.  Andy Tran knows a thing or two about that too. Two houses >> four units, brand new.

This is an ideal strategy for investors new to developing and we are very lucky to have Charles Wah and Andy Tran to share how they are doing it.
