    Episode 146: Why real estate investing should FUND your life, not RUN your life with Michael Dominguez

    Episode 146: Why real estate investing should FUND your life, not RUN your life with Michael Dominguez

    Here’s What You’ll Learn in our Interview with Michael Dominguez:


    Taking a tenant first approach

    Buying in the right neighbourhood

    Looking at market fundamentals

    Armchair Real Estate Millionaire
    And much, much more!

    Michael Dominguez is an award-winning sales representative at RE/MAX Jazz Inc. Brokerage and the founder of Doors to Wealth Real Estate Group, a team of realtors focused on educating and assisting people in residential real estate. After becoming a realtor in 2008, Michael realized the opportunities in real estate investing and bought his first investment property, proceeding to add to his portfolio for 10 consecutive years. Throughout his realtor career, he has completed over 300 investment property transactions.

    Michael did everything he was supposed to do. He fought his way through his schooling, wound up with a Bachelor of Commerce degree, then got a responsible job, met a girl, got married, bought a single family home, and had a child.

    As he approached 40, he came to the realization that he was stuck in a rat race of long commutes, a dead end job, a failing marriage and endless debt.

    By taking control of his future, and building a stream of appreciating cash-flow generating assets, Michael started to see real changes in his net worth and his mindset. When he entered real estate in 2008, Michael was drawn towards people who saw real estate ownership as a vehicle for building wealth and reaching their goals. Many of his current and former clients were able to quit their full-time job, do more of what they want to do, and seek their passions.

    As an investor realtor, Michael discovered a real passion for helping others build their wealth so they can experience the choices and financial freedom they desire. He has been fortunate to teach others to follow that path to success.

    Real estate investing has allowed Michael to do the things he WANTS to do rather than the things he has to do.
