This episode is with my friends Ping and Andrew of Spotted Properties Property Management in Hamilton Ontario.  They are good guys and here to share show they are handling managing their tenants across their 6 or 800 door portfolio, they have a unique perspective as well and they do manage quite a few student rentals as well.  The letter they sent out to tenants is on our website at http://www.truthaboutrealestateinvesting.ca/ or you are one of the clever ones, we would have sent you an email with this episode and a link to that same letter.  All you need to do to make sure you get these episodes and resources we are sharing, simply go to that same website: http://www.truthaboutrealestateinvesting.ca/ and enter your name and email on the right.

On to this week’s guest: Kathleen van den Berg, MBA, CLU, CFP. I think she’s great because she’s one of the rate Certified Financial Planners who recommends owning real estate and she owns a fair amount of real estate too.  I invited Kathleen to come on the show asking her to share what advice she has for her clients during these historic times.

Kathleen’s bio:

I have the best job in the world ... and I have a ton of fun doing it.
I specialize in working with individuals and families to improve their monthly cash flow and build significantly greater wealth compared to their current approach.

Unlike most other wealth strategists, I include real estate strategies as one of the 6 key components in clients' wealth building plans.

I implement a 6 step wealth strategy system with clients and routinely am able to create over a million dollars of additonal income in retirement.

Hello Wealth Hackers!!

As you may know, I was dabbling in stock options, had a lot of early success, took a deeper dive, hired a coach who in turn is my stock hacking mentor as he loves to share and teach me outside of my coaching time.  He’s is an ex Wall St, options pits trader as a career for seven years, he left to move to Hawaii and trade from home in paradise. Lee now has been full time trading for 30 years, he is the best selling author of Get Rich With Options author Lee “the Godfather of Stock Options” Lowell.  You may recognize Lee’s book as it was required reading for the original Stock Hacker Academy before attending the course. He literally wrote the book of the subject that became foundational reference material for all past and future Stock Hackers.

It only made logical sense we partner with Lee to bring all you Wealth Hackers the all new Stock Hacker Academy version 2.0!! To register go to  www.stockhackeracademy.ca/specialoffer all the details are there and prices go up April 22nd so don’t delay. The timing couldn’t be any better as Lee predicts the bottom of the stock market at only a few weeks away.

Needless to say, my Stock Hacking game has improved 10X, the skills I’ve learnt, the strategies that I’ve refined while dialing down my risk.  Lee loves to teach and share his experience and he’s invested through THREE major economic meltdowns and recoveries before the Covid19 related correction we’re in now. I honestly don’t know anyone I’d rather learn from right now.

In real estate, I’ve always said, a real estate expert has invested through a full cycle.  I’ve been through the credit crisis 12 years ago. Lee has been through THREE economic cycles hence his experience in managing risk through the current down turn and how to maximize returns during the eventual recovery has me beyond excited to maximize returns during this recession.

Yes I love real estate and it’s the best investment in the world however the stock market dropped by close to a third, the real estate market in my target areas are on pause as physical showings and open houses have virtually stopped.  Personally I’m taking this social distancing time to learn a new skill that will make me money from home. We’re all stuck at home anyways, may as well learn how to maximize returns while we’re here. I can’t even mow the lawn at my investment property right now if I wanted to. 

As always, I love learning something new and sharing, especially with stock prices being so cheap right now and I’m beyond excited to announce the all new Stock Hacker Academy version 2.0 in partnership with Lee Lowell.  The course is entirely rebuilt from scratch in my vision, I’ve taken in all the feedback and lessons from the first course and 10X’d the new 12 month program in order to give our students the highest probability of success.

This isn’t for everyone, those who want to learn and willing to commit some time to learning and practicing will succeed. Lee and I are here to provide the education.  Only those willing should enroll but knowing many of you came a long way in your real estate journeys, Stock Hacking is a brilliant complement. My wife Cherry and I are trading HELOC monies from our investment properties.  All you need to do is take the course and own a smart phone.

As part of the 12 month program you get:

  • A two day live streamed course with Lee Lowell
  • All the recordings so you may re-watch whenever you want
  • Eight weeks of webinars where Lee will continue to teach new strategies and take your questions.
  • Lee’s Newsletter that he’s been writing for 15 years (I’m a paid subscriber and it’s truly excellent, the writing is in plain English, Lee is transparent with his trades). You can really tell he cares about his subscribers and has the skills and experience to limit their risks.
  • Monthly meetups at my offices for the year. I (Erwin) love to network and share, in person is best so we can all network with like minded Stock Hackers, look over the shoulder of a fellow stock hacker to get help, ask your questions live and in person.  Nothing beats in person meetings.
  • Private online support group. We have months of questions and answers and interviews with Derek and Lee posted there. Stay in touch with your community 24/7!!
  • Quick Start Guide my team designed for Stock Hacking purposes! We will take weeks off your learning curve using the mobile app!!

The timing really couldn’t get better, the market is down around 30% and just look at your other opportunities, the real estate market is on pause till the virus goes away, private lending rates don’t interest me when I can stock hack high yielding dividend paying companies, some of my favourite stocks are cash flowing via dividends of 7-10% with equity upside, why would I private lend… we’ll cover this too in the course.  We’re all stuck at home anyways so may as well learn a side hustle that requires little time and effort.  

To register it’s www.stockhackeracademy.ca/specialoffer

You’re stuck at home anyways, may as well learn how to make money from home and the timing couldn’t be better with the bottom of the market only weeks away.  The last correction was 12 years ago, don’t wait another 12 years for the next opportunity.

By the way, speaking of the Godfather of Stock Options, I proudly present to you my mentor, best selling author of “Get Rich With Options,” Lee Lowell.
