Hilary is a long time client of ours who’s been on quite a journey, from growing up and immigrating from small town Kenya, Africa, coming to Canada on a student VISA as so many immigrants do, then really getting outside his comfort zone house hacking and started investing in real estate.
Imagine that. Coming from a rural community with one or two tea shops to buying houses and renting them to university students and regular rentals as well. The first property being a student rental in Thorold, Ontario in 2015 for $351,000.
Hilary’s strategy for systematic, fully furnishing is a first that I’ve heard of so you’ll want to take note!
He didn’t stop there as he started mentoring others in his community and even joint venturing with some of them to purchase properties in Northern Ontario. With nickel pricings spiking, I hope that’s good news for our investor friends up north.
Hilary has a full time job that he enjoys and proof that one can invest successfully for a comfortable retirement. He has no plans to go full time into real estate.
Please enjoy the show!
