On this weekly real estate investing podcast you will join two of the co-founders of the REITE Club (Real Estate Investing Training & Education), Sarah Larbi and Alfonso Salemi, as they interview successful REITE Club members about their unique stories and real estate investing strategies.





We are consistently energized and inspired at our monthly REITE Club live events by people who are doing great things in real estate investing. That’s the speakers and many members of the audience. Sadly not everyone is able to attend every meeting, or you are just too far away to make it to a live event. We wanted to bring that energy and knowledge right to where ever you are, hence the podcast!





The interviews you will hear are from people who have shown success in real estate investing and learn what they do to succeed, some lessons learned and what they are doing now to keep things moving. After you launch something, you need to feed it and grow it. There’s no such thing as “if you build it, they will come.”





Real Estate investing is no different and we’ll dig into the strategies and tactics our guests executed to make their initiatives grow, and the results they achieved. The idea is to learn actionable marketing and growth concepts from our guests, then take those concepts and be able to immediately apply them to grow our real estate investing businesses.

    Guest: Daniel St-Jean, Co-Founder of The REITE Club and Real Estate Investor
