Hello Halton, Toronto, Hamilton, Brantford, St. Catharines, Niagara, Welland, Thorold real estate investors!!!
This week we close on another investment property, our 2nd this year with plans to buy our third hopefully in December. Last week was November’s REIN meeting and I finally remembered to update and submit my list of properties I had purchased as a REIN member. Lucky enough, Don Campbell was in town to present live and I awarded my gold pin for 17 properties. Don and the whole REIN executive and members have been a huge part of my journey and REIN just announced ACRE, the best weekend of real estate training on March 2-3rd, link: http://info.reincanada.com/toronto-acre-2018
. The price is a rock bottom $687 plus tax but hopefully I can get you listeners a discount code so hang tight! For those of you’ve been around, you know $687 is a great return on investment knowing other organizations charge $1,500 for a weekend event and I’ve invested thousands more for other business events.
Funny story about the REIN meeting, as I was getting ready and heading out the door to drive with my buddy Charles Wah to the REIN meeting, normally, without a second thought I wear dress shoes. For some reason I wanted to wear my all red Nikes, specifically Kobe Bryant’s knowing that Richard Dolan, President of REIN wears equally funky shoes some days. Later that night, as Richard called me to stage to accept my award, he jokingly accused me of raiding his closet and stealing his shoes :P Unprofessional of me to wear basketball shoes? Maybe but fellow members and Don Campbell were complimenting me on both my shoe game and award so whatever. I’m not sure there is a lesson there but I was just being me, a big basketball fan and wearing comfortable shoes.
Richard Dolan asked me what my secret was and if anyone can accomplish the same. Yes, anyone can do this, being a REIN member has helped me, and the secret to success? Anyone who makes investing a priority will succeed.
Welcome ladies and gentlemen investors across the greatest country in the world. My name is Erwin Szeto aka Mr. Hamilton bringing you the Truth About Real Estate Investing show for Canadians where it is my job to bring you experts in the world of investing. We will learn from their experience, pick out the lessons, tips and tricks, and figure out what makes them tick so you too can replicate their success to enhance your real estate investor’s life of health, wealth, friends, family and fun.
This week we have something different, like we do every week! This week we have the economic update presentation I delivered in October to my Halton Real Estate Investors Group. I did it in one take so it’s not quite polished but if you wanted insight into what drives my decision making to continue to acquire investment property while having very little diversity in my portfolio, in my opinion, those with assets will create the most the wealth and if I don’t, well that’s a scary alternate ending I’m doing everything in my power to avoid.
Till next time, Just do it, I believe in you.
