    Exited Real Estate For Stocks & $10k+/mth for Financial Freedom With Client Tim Collins

    Exited Real Estate For Stocks & $10k+/mth for Financial Freedom With Client Tim Collins

    On to this week’s show!
    Full disclosure, Tim Collins is one of our longest time clients hence he’s bought and held properties for several years in order to get rich slowly. He’s also taken our Stock Hacker Academy courses. He’s switched careers a couple times from high paid tech executive to now a Real Estate Agent.  Moved his family from Orangeville, Ontario to Nanaimo, BC for warmer weather and a view of the ocean.
    Tim is open minded, successful, wants more out of life and is now financially free and has the option to retire early thanks to his now $10,000+ passive, dividend income each month from his stock portfolio. Tim’s mental health is likely better than that of most investors these days.
    From my experience working with investors everyday, many of you want passive cash flow hence I’m excited to bring you this episode to learn how Tim escaped the 9-5 rat race and golden handcuffs by building wealth in real estate then pivoting to stocks for greater yields and passivity.
    We’re all on this journey of learning together and what better way than to learn from folks who have what we want.
    Announcement regarding Stock Hacker Academy, we’ve completely revamped the course to make it more comprehensive and added numerous modules to aid those new to the stock market.  Plus several value adds we will announce at the Wealth Hacker Conference. As always, we believe in and practise continuous improvement and I’m beyond excited to share with our community the absolute best version of our beginner course at the lowest price anyone will ever see and only available for purchase at the conference.  Just another bonus for those in attendance!
     Please enjoy the show!

    Building in Florida, Investing in Glamping in Ontario With Andrew Hines

    Building in Florida, Investing in Glamping in Ontario With Andrew Hines

    On to this week’s show!
    Our guest Andrew Hines I believe needs little to no introduction. He graduated from the top Business School in Canada based on my biassed opinion of also graduating from the same school. Andrew is one of the good ones in having shared his losses early on investing in Ohio early in his investor journey; he’s built townhouse complexes, invested in high end student rentals, currently he’s more focused on diversification by developing and building in Florida plus a start up, 90 acre, high end campground.
    We talk about economics, where the market is going and when/where Andrew thinks there will be opportunities.
    Have you pens and notepads ready!
     Please enjoy the show!

    Closing on 5 Apartment Buildings and 177 Units in 2022 With Quentin D’Souza

    Closing on 5 Apartment Buildings and 177 Units in 2022 With Quentin D’Souza

    This week, we have the very successful Quentin D’Souza on the show. There are tons of coaches and Multifamily experts out there but in my experience, Quentin is one of the best. I know many of his past students including Steve Phillips on my iWIN Real Estate team and his investment partners. Not many share a track record of successful like Quentin.
    He’s on today’s show with Cherry giving the interview as I was out hosting a golf event with fellow 7 figure entrepreneurs so as we sometimes do, “divide and conquer” I wrote down some questions I wanted to ask Quentin about apartment building investing, investing in US, where best to find cash flow, what the future holds. You know, same stuff you ask anyone who bought five apartment buildings or 177 units this year alone and is always looking to level up.
    Quentin is an old friend, the Chief Education Office and founder of Durham REI, a really great, long running networking group that meets monthly, he’s authored four books including the most recent ”The Action Taker's Real Estate Investing Planner” link https://www.amazon.ca/Action-Takers-Estate-Investing-Planner/dp/099367173X?dplnkId=a0338035-2ffa-4400-9b24-053578dc6df7&nodl=1#aw-udpv3-customer-reviews_feature_div
    Obviously a big time investor.

    Recent Self Made, Real Estate Investor Millionaire, Hamilton/Sudbury, 28 y/o Joseph Costanza

    Recent Self Made, Real Estate Investor Millionaire, Hamilton/Sudbury, 28 y/o Joseph Costanza

    On to this week’s show!
    We have a young rock star in Joseph Costanza who was 24 when we met and owner of the title of the youngest client we’ve ever had.  He’s a young hustler who when I met him had three jobs: Architect day job; bartender, evening weekend job; landscaper with remaining time not sleeping.
    Thanks to all that hustle and saving money by living at home with his parents, young Joe saved up enough money for his first investment property of his now five properties.  Crazy enough he’s already made his first million dollars hence he’s now our youngest of 45 self made investor millionaire real estate clients at 28.
    Joe’s here today along with Coach Tammy from the iWIN Real Estate team to give us an update on his expansion project in Sudbury which didn’t go so well and his lessons so you may avoid the same mistakes he made.
    Plus a gem of an expired listing in Hamilton that coach Tammy helped Joe with that eventually was priced well under market because the property failed to sell, was rough and the challenging tenant with previous orders against him by the Landlord Tenant Board.
    We talk numbers on the most recent deal so have your pens and calculators ready or email us at iwin@infinitywealth.ca and we can send you Coach Tammy’s draft numbers.
    Please enjoy the show!

    Former Investments Insider, Real Estate Trader, Writing Low Ball Offers With Montu Dhillon

    Former Investments Insider, Real Estate Trader, Writing Low Ball Offers With Montu Dhillon

    This week we have a really interesting interview of a gentleman, co-worker at Rock Star Real Estate, my friend Montu Dhillon.  He has a unique background having worked his way up the corporate ladder in the financial services world, specifically compliance so he saw first hand who really makes the money in the investment services industry, hence he started buying real estate.
    Montu shares how he started like most of us do, hustling hard, in search of cash flow buying houses, duplex, fourplex, Airbnb then later transitioned into new construction condos for the negative cash flow but way less headaches.  Montu is a bit of a trader as well having divested some properties near the peak and what property type he has his sights set on may surprise you.
    Montu shares his experience in the current market of writing low ball offers and being on the receiving end as well.
    This is definitely a story of resilience, entrepreneurship, and taking control of one’s financial future.
