This week we have Mackenzie Wilson of SingleKey the tenant credit and background check reporting service that recently acquired Naborly.
If you haven’t heard of SingleKey… well they are quite popular in the circles I run in and for you new investors, you’re so lucky you don’t have to run credit checks the old way…
Mackenzie is a very diligent investor from Calgary, Alberta. He shares how we went from oil rigs and IT at Telus and left it behind to start an online business in real estate that didn’t go so well but he survived, still owns his three duplexes in Calgary and works at SingleKey as a Director.
As you’ll soon tell, Mackenzie is a diligent landlord (one of the most diligent I’ve ever met) and loves to help other landlords in Alberta out as he’s always sharing and educating his peer group of 4,200 Alberta Landlords
On today’s show we talk about the difference between commercial and residential in Calgary, Calgary vs. Edmonton. Of course we talk about tenant screening as it appears to be a passion of Mackenzie’s even though his properties are in Alberta and how appropriate it is his day job is now at SingleKey.
One big nugget is I asked Mackenzie as a beginner investor, what should I buy in Calgary and his protip is a good one.
Please enjoy the show!
