Highly Recommended

What a refreshingly informative podcast! For anyone cautiously curious about the industry, this is the perfect way to get the information you need without feeling overwhelmed.

Gary services up accessible, valuable content to fit a diverse audience of newbies such as myself, to the seasoned vets in the game. I have recently started taking courses to broaden my knowledge and I swear each episode of this podcast is a review session!

Keep up the phenomenal work!

Amazing Content, Would Recommend!

I’ve been listening to Gary’s show for a couple of years now and have gained a lot of insight from it! Being from the East GTA, it is really relatable to hear about success stories from investors local to my area. Gary keeps the conversations on topic, asks great questions, and brings on some very successful and insightful guests that make you think differently about money, lifestyle, and real estate. I would highly recommend this show!
