On to this week’s show!

We have Emily and Coach Tammy Ditomaso on the show. Emily is a new investor already with three properties under her belt in under two years. Emily’s early journey includes more involved renovations, inherited tenant who was in jail, rent arbitrage, middle term rentals and most importantly, a lot of financial success. Middle term rentals fall between short term and long-term rentals. In some markets where short term rentals are banned. 

Emily also happens to have a nice job for one of the big Canadian banks in HR and shares about what skills and positions earn mega bucks, pensions, benefits and work from home. Working from home is huge for real estate investors so they can get to new listings faster, early to offer and win more deals. 

Coach Tammy Ditomaso has been on my team of investor focused, four time Realtors of the Year Investors since 2015. She’s also known as the Duplex Queen since she’s helped a couple dozen buy, renovate, rent and hold more duplexes west of the GTA than anyone and her knowledge of local zoning is 2nd to none.

Please enjoy the show!

On to this week’s guest.

Christian Szpilfogel is one smart guy. He’s a former tech executive who worked with Canadian tech billionaire Sir Terry Matthews and he’s implemented a highly analytical and technology based strategy to maximise the returns on his multi family investment.  Christian detailed the top tech apps and devices for ROI in a past podcast so check it out if you haven’t already, the water metre monitor could save you thousands of dollars via early detection of a water leak. 

Christian’s smart on the EQ side as well in his ability to communicate his renovation and development plans with the neighbours to obtain their signed support to get his variances and permits approved. He shares how he’s finding deals, getting offers accepted in multiple offer situations, and even having sellers call him directly.

Cherry and I will be videoing and touring Christians properties in early June as part of our Ottawa tour, we’re in town hosting a casual meetup in Centretown 6pm on June 7th and on June 8th, Cherry will be a guest speaker at OREIO, the big Ottawa networking group at the Infinity Convention Centre.

On to this week’s show!

We have an incredible story from my old friend Todor Yordanov, one of the first serious real estate investors I met in 2007 and he’s done quite well for himself.

He’s done so well, he’s progressed to helping others, specifically Ukrainian refugees at the border with Bulgaria where he’s from. How his partner Natalia would cry all night when the war broke out and one morning, they dropped everything to get on a plane to go help.

Todor is here today to share how we became a successful investor and Broker, from BRRRR investor to his now focus, pre construction condos.

As I type, Todor is actually on his way back to help Ukrainian refugees.  What a guy!

On to this week’s show!  We have Ryan Poole who’s not your average Florida Realtor with 24 years experience. He’s on the show today to share his experience during the housing bubble and the financial/credit crisis of 2007/08 including buying portfolios of distressed properties for cents on the dollar, how current times are different. What typical investments and who are these Florida buyers are. 

We talk about the local amenities, weather, hurricane preparedness, foreign buyer financing, that’s right, us Canadians are the evil foreign buyers this time, lol. 

As mentioned, Ryan is not your typical Realtor, he’s an owner in a tech startup called Realtrade.io, a marketplace for Realtors and real estate. Kinda like Facebook and Realtor MLS in one. I’ll let Ryan explain it.

Anyways, Ryan’s a good guy and I learnt a ton about investing in Florida for a local 24 year veteran of real estate, and hope you do too. Please enjoy the show!

On to this week’s show!

Today we have an old friend of mine Moe Hansrod who’s been in real estate since the early 2000’s as both investor and property manager. Moe is currently an owner of KW Property Management (KW stands for Kitchen Waterloo, not Keller Williams) with around 2,000 doors, 600 clients, mostly with single family homes w/ the average investor client owner 3-5 houses. Moe is on the show today to shares some truths about real estate investing including having to pick up the pieces after what out of town Realtors promised to investors in terms of over inflated tenant profiles and over rents by as much as 25%.

Moe is also an investor in Realmeproperty, a startup, real estate, financial technology company offering block chain based, affordable investing opportunities in cash flowing real estate.  Moe’s young friends Akshat and Rishard who are super bright and going places are here to explain what is a fractional ownership of investment properties opportunity.

As always, anything said on this podcast is for educational, maybe entertainment purposes and not an endorsement or any investment. For investment advice please seek professional advice from a financial advisor for which me and my guest are not.

My unprofessional opinion? I’m excited for where RealMe goes as I and I’m sure many of you would like an opportunity to early exit a portion of our investment properties one day while offering opportunity to those with smaller amounts of capital to invest because everyone needs exposure to hard assets.

Please enjoy the show!
