Building a Brand of Influence, Alberta Market Update with Best Selling Author Russell Westcott
Speaking of my favourite hedge against inflation, real estate, I don’t know many people who own more real estate than today’s guest in Russell Westcott. He’s been through a lot of economic cycles being an Edmonton, Alberta real estate investor. Russell is an old and good friend of mine so it’s always great to catch up on what he’s up to to help people out. He’s possibly the top real estate investor coach out there and it helps that he’s owned over 100 properties and co-authored the best selling book “Joint Venture Secrets.”
Admittedly, I don’t invest in Alberta and my outlook is bearish on the oil industry. With the growing popularity of electric vehicles and carbon taxes, I don’t see the demand for oil keeping up, not with Ford and GM planning to be all electric by 2035. But I’m not an expert and I’m always keen on listening to opinions different from mine.
The Nice Wholesaler Who Did 26 Deals Plus 10 Flips in 2020 with Aaron Moore
I’ve been friends with Aaron Moore for quite some time. What most don’t know is he’s very successful and an even nicer guy. Most don’t know who he is because he doesn’t have a huge social media presence, he’s quietly doing deals and crushing it.
In 2020 alone, Aaron did 36 deals including 10 flips. In this episode Aaron is kind enough to share some tips for those new to wholesaling and his path to build out his team. I know I took a ton of notes and I hope you do too.

Investing In Apartment Buildings Across Canada with Michael Ponte
On this week’s guest, we have nationwide apartment building investors Michael Ponte! I first met Michael at a real estate conference many years ago where he was collecting his award as apartment building investor of the year.

Michael also shares some tips on how he’s able to invest in real estate on the other side of the country as he lives in British Columbia but invests as far away as Moncton, New Brunswick. I give you Michael Ponte.
From Top Real Estate Coach in Canada To Launching New Authors From California
On to this week’s returning guest and it’s only been a five short years since episode 1 featuring Julie Broad. Well she’s back and not much has changed!! Except she left her dominant position in the real estate influencer space in Canada to move to California and open a new business.
She still invests in real estate in Nanaimo, BC but she’s here today to share about her new book coming out, share why everyone needs to write a book and a few how to’s to make your book a good one.
She’s the author of “More Than Cash Flow” which is still a top 3-5 real estate book IMHO.
So without further ado, I give you Julie Broad.
From Pumping Gas for a Living in Ontario to Moving to Edmonton as a Full Time Investor and Opening a Bank With Wayne Hillier
Now we recorded this interview almost a month ago so I’ve asked Wayne for a quote on the pending Keystone pipeline cancellation. He says it sucks. LOL. Another good friend of mine tells me Alberta invests heavily into renewable energy so do your own research and decide for yourself.
Wayne Hillier has been investing in Edmonton and Leduc since 2015. He’s a dad, husband, landlord. He’s the host of his own podcast the Real Estate Investor Dad Podcast. He’s starting his own bank, I think that’s a first for this podcast, and he’s got a great story how it all got started while he was living in a basement and pumping gas for a living.

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.
Great CANADIAN REI podcast
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a little over a year now and upon searching for Canadian content it was the first one I found. The thing I like most about this podcast is the breadth of investing topics and strategies, even some that are not related to real estate. Because of this podcast I also got involved with options trading which has proven to be an absolute game changer, it is nice to have constant updates on that as well as the real estate. Erwin is doing a great job of keeping his material new and fresh and I hope that he continues to do so to the benefit of us listeners.
Top Canadian Investors Podcast
I was first drawn to this podcast 2 years ago by a picture of some guy in a Hamilton Tiger Cats jersey during my search for Canadian Real Estate Content. Being from Hamilton I couldn't believe there was a local podcast with local marketplace information. It was like giving me a glimpse into the world I always knew I wanted to be a part of. Since then, I have taken the Stock Hacker Academy course, and am on my way to achieving my real estate goals. Erwin has been like a virtual mentor to me.
