How To Invest In Florida Real Estate in 2022 With Ryan Poole
On to this week’s show! We have Ryan Poole who’s not your average Florida Realtor with 24 years experience. He’s on the show today to share his experience during the housing bubble and the financial/credit crisis of 2007/08 including buying portfolios of distressed properties for cents on the dollar, how current times are different. What typical investments and who are these Florida buyers are.
We talk about the local amenities, weather, hurricane preparedness, foreign buyer financing, that’s right, us Canadians are the evil foreign buyers this time, lol.
As mentioned, Ryan is not your typical Realtor, he’s an owner in a tech startup called Realtrade.io, a marketplace for Realtors and real estate. Kinda like Facebook and Realtor MLS in one. I’ll let Ryan explain it.
Anyways, Ryan’s a good guy and I learnt a ton about investing in Florida for a local 24 year veteran of real estate, and hope you do too. Please enjoy the show!

Lessons From Managing 2,000 Houses & R.E. Investments On The Blockchain With Moe Hansrod
On to this week’s show!
Today we have an old friend of mine Moe Hansrod who’s been in real estate since the early 2000’s as both investor and property manager. Moe is currently an owner of KW Property Management (KW stands for Kitchen Waterloo, not Keller Williams) with around 2,000 doors, 600 clients, mostly with single family homes w/ the average investor client owner 3-5 houses. Moe is on the show today to shares some truths about real estate investing including having to pick up the pieces after what out of town Realtors promised to investors in terms of over inflated tenant profiles and over rents by as much as 25%.
Moe is also an investor in Realmeproperty, a startup, real estate, financial technology company offering block chain based, affordable investing opportunities in cash flowing real estate. Moe’s young friends Akshat and Rishard who are super bright and going places are here to explain what is a fractional ownership of investment properties opportunity.
As always, anything said on this podcast is for educational, maybe entertainment purposes and not an endorsement or any investment. For investment advice please seek professional advice from a financial advisor for which me and my guest are not.
My unprofessional opinion? I’m excited for where RealMe goes as I and I’m sure many of you would like an opportunity to early exit a portion of our investment properties one day while offering opportunity to those with smaller amounts of capital to invest because everyone needs exposure to hard assets.
Please enjoy the show!

From Living in Affordable Housing to Building 400 Units of Affordable Housing with Alfredo Hermano
On to this week’s show!
We have a pretty amazing story of Alfredo Hermano who grew up in affordable housing and now he’s building and developing a ton of affordable housing. He's got three buildings on the go for a total of 400 rental apartment units with rents well below market value, and plans to grow that number to ten buildings and well over 1,000 units. These are investments and part of the investment was crowdfunded via Addy which I think is super cool so even those with smaller bankrolls are able to invest.
On today’s show Alfredo shares how his company 3H Properties Group is able to work with the government to provide subsidies AND his investors a return.
As usual, none of what is shared today is an endorsement. Please do your own research and due diligence, past results do not predict the future and please seek professional investing advice. Everything shared today is for educational and infotainment purposes and I wish you all success in your investment returns!

Inspirational Podcast for Financial Independence
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while now and there is so much that I love about it. For me the biggest thing is that the guests are regular folks who are easy to relate to. They are successful in what they do but the gap between where they are and where most people are doesn’t seem so big. It leaves the listener inspired.
So many investment strategies are discussed; there is definitely something for everyone. Also love that the content is relevant for Canadians.
