Welcome ladies and gentlemen investors across the greatest country in the world, this is the Truth About Real Estate Investing show for Canadians where it is my job to bring you experts in the world of investing so we may learn from their experience, so we too can duplicate their success, and inspire YOU to take action for an early and comfortable retirement. Even better would be investments to pay for your children’s education, down payments for their first homes, and to support your favourite charities.
This week we have an exceptional guest in Elizabeth Kelly who has been investing for over 12 years built a large portfolio of buy, rent and hold investment properties with her husband and co-founded a property management company based in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. Elizabeth also runs a boutique Rent to Own company which specializes in providing home ownership options for families.
On the business side, Elizabeth coaches and trains investors and has done so for the last five years. While doing so she noticed a service gap in the mortgage industry for real estate investors hence she obtained her mortgage license to specialize in helping investors plan, structure and creatively finance their real estate portfolio so they can enjoy their retirement and leave a legacy for their families.
To reach out and connect with Elizabeth:

We’ve had guests in the pasts from faraway lands, Don Campbell who resides in British Columbia, Pierre Paul Turgeon who’s from Alberta but this week our guest, Andy Tran is on the other side of the world in Japan visiting his wife’s family. I’ve been friends with Andy since 2009 when we met at a mutual friend’s birthday and ran into each other again at REIN. Andy was one of my first clients as I helped him purchase investment properties in Hamilton back in 2010 and have been friends since but now the tables have turned as I have hired Andy to prepare my investment property for a legal basement suite conversion. As always, I believe in hiring the best to work on my business and it just so happens that Andy is a leading expert in accessory apartments in the golden horseshoe of Ontario. Andy is guiding me and my property through the city’s permit process including building code, certified drawings, working with the city’s planners and inspectors etc… stuff that I neither enjoy nor have time for.
Andy is a former home inspector and former Manager of Education for Carson Dunlop, a well-known home inspection company in Toronto that produces half of the education material for home inspectors. He’s the Author of book “Legal 2nd Suites – A Beginners Guide.” Andy is a regular guest speaker at different real estate networking events and an all-around nice guy so without further do, I present to you Andy Tran.
